Your Buzzman Retractable Awning should provide you with many decades of use. We currently have awnings that are in use today approaching 25+ years of age and still look great! Maintenance is simple; all it takes is cleaning the frame a couple times a year with a mild soapy water mixture and changing the 2 AAA batteries(we recommend AAA Lithium) in your awning’s wireless wind sensor once per year. Generally no lubrication or adjustments are necessary. Spots on the fabric can be cleaned with a mild citrus cleaner or see the Sunbrella or Tempotest website for other cleaning solutions. Buzzman Retractable Awnings use only the finest extruded Aircraft Aluminum Magnesium Alloy finished with a PVC coating which will not flake over time like powder coated metals. For hardware, we use the best 3-1-6 marine grade stainless hardware. The exclusive Buzzman Retractable Awning frame carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty against defects.
Buzzman Retractable Awnings only use the highest quality Sunbrella or Tempotest marine grade awning fabric (the same fabric used on boats). These fabrics carry a manufacturer’s 10-year prorated warranty covering excessive fading and penetrating mildew. Typically, you won’t have to even think of replacing the fabric for 10-15+ years!
We exclusively use industry standard Somfy Motors, remote controls and wireless digital wind sensors which carry a manufacturer’s 5-year warranty.
PLEASE DO NOT PRESSURE WASH YOUR AWNING as this can damage the fabric, motor and other parts which may potentially void any/all warranties.
