Our Awning Removal Process

Commercial awning removal typically involves a structured process to safely and efficiently remove awnings from commercial buildings. Here are some of the steps that our team takes when removing awnings:

Initial Assessment and Consultation

The process of awning removal starts with an initial assessment and consultation between our company and the commercial property owner or manager. During this phase, we will assess the condition of the awning you want to remove, including its attachment points and any possible safety hazards. After that, we will discuss the project scope, goals, and timeline with you. We will also address any special requirements you have and considerations, including permits or site-specific safety protocols.

Preparatory Work

Before the awning removal work starts, the area surrounding the awning will be cleared to ensure safety and easy access for our removal team. If needed, utilities like electricity or water are disconnected to prevent accidents during the removal process. Safety measures are put in place, including the use of safety harnesses and fall protection equipment. 

Removal Techniques

Our team’s removal techniques depend on the type of awning, its size, and how it is attached to the building. We can cut and dismantle awnings or unbolt or unscrew them. If the awnings are retractable or folding, we can carefully detach them by retracting or folding them before removal. Our team ensures that they work methodically to prevent damage to the building or surrounding structures.

Disposal and Recycling

Awning materials that are removed are sorted for disposal and recycling. Any hazardous materials, like old paint or coatings, are handled and disposed of based on local regulations. Some parts of the awning, such as metal frames, can be salvaged or repurposed if they are still in good condition. 

Site Cleanup

After the awning removal process, the area will be cleaned thoroughly to remove debris, dust, and any remnants of the awning. Then, the site will be inspected to check if there are no damages during the removal process. If needed, repairs or touch-up work on the exterior of the building may be scheduled. 

Final Review and Client Satisfaction

We also let the client review the project to ensure their satisfaction with the awning removal service. Any post-removal services or maintenance plans are discussed if needed.

Commercial Awnings We Remove

Our company has the expertise and equipment to remove different types of commercial awnings. Below is a list of the different types of awnings that we can help you remove:

  • Retractable Awnings: These awnings can be extended or retracted as needed. Removal of retractable awnings may involve retracting them, disconnecting them from their supports, and taking them down carefully.
  • Fixed Awnings: These are stationary awnings that are attached permanently to the building structure. Removing them may need dismantling or cutting the awning into sections for safe removal.
  • Metal Awnings: Metal awnings are usually made of materials like aluminum or steel. Removal may involve unbolting or cutting sections of the metal awning, depending on its design. 
  • Fabric Awnings: These are usually made from materials like acrylic or canvas. Removal may include cutting, unfastening, or carefully detaching the fabric from its frame.
  • Vinyl and Plastic Awnings: These are lightweight and are usually used for smaller commercial applications. Removal may involve disassembling the frame and removing the vinyl or plastic material.
  • Glass Awnings: Some commercial buildings have glass awnings, providing a transparent or semi-transparent cover. The removal of glass awnings may include careful dismantling and handling of glass panels.
  • Polycarbonate Awnings: These are made from a durable, transparent material. They may be removed by disassembling the frame and carefully handling the polycarbonate panels.
  • Wooden Awnings: Awnings made from wood require careful removal to avoid damage. The wood may be disassembled or cut into sections for removal.
  • Fiberglass Awnings: These are lightweight and durable. Removal typically involves unfastening or cutting the fiberglass sections.
  • Custom Awnings: Many commercial properties have custom-designed awnings. Removal of custom awnings requires a tailored approach based on the specific design and attachment method.
  • Overhead Canopies: Some commercial buildings have overhead canopies that function as awnings. Removal may involve dismantling or cutting sections of the canopy.
  • Logo or Branded Awnings: Awnings with logos or branding may require extra care during removal to preserve any signage or graphics. Special attention is given to the branding elements.
