    More about Our Awning Remediation Services

    Shop awnings tend to be one of the most neglected structures on the building as they are on the footpath side of the business and the structure lives out in the weather. Sooner or later this exposure leads to deterioration of the components such as rust holes in the metal, loose nuts and bolts and withered frames. Awnings are constructed from a vast array of building materials including wood/timber, metal, canvas, acrylic, aluminium, vinyl and other variations, and the level of exposure and engineering requirements will usually determine the type of materials used.

    As one of Sydney’s more experienced commercial awning repair and replacement services, we usually find business owners are taken by surprise when faced with the necessity or formal directive to carry out awning remediation, as the process is a lot more involved than it would seem on the surface.

    The table discusses some of the requirements you may not have contemplated:

    Asbestos RemovalIn many cases, the deteriorated structures are old enough to contain asbestos requiring removal by a licensed contractor
    Traffic ManagementIn narrow streets where pedestrians need to be diverted, there may be the need to manage vehicular traffic as well. This may also be required for the supply of building materials.
    Pedestrian ManagementIf your awning has been declared unsafe by your local council then pedestrian management may be required immediately. It is also usually required through the construction process.
    Emergency ProppingIf your awning has been declared not structurally sound, you will likely be directed to have emergency propping installed immediately
    Nighttime constructionIn high pedestrian / vehicular traffic areas, you may not be able to manage daytime volumes effectively and you will be required to have the building works carried out after hours.
