Awnings Awnings are in fact almost maintenance free but from time to time problems can occur  as a result of unexpected weather, accidents, or wear and tear.  Our servicing engineers are able to sort out many problems, supply & fit new parts to get your awning back to work.

Re-Programming A lost transmitter, interrupted power supply, change of use, or upgrading an installation are some of the reasons why you may need to re- programme your awning set up. We may be able to sort out the problem by phone or by visiting.

Recovering There are many reasons for changing your awning cover. We have a  fantastic range of fabrics available from the best manufacturers in the world so if you need a new cover for your home or restaurant awning call Alfresco 365.

Moving Moving your awning, re modelling of your home and alfresco space may require moving your awning installation.

Sail Maintenance Sails, all tensile sail installations require regular maintenance inspections to check Sail Tensions, Sail connections, Sail Condition, Condition of fixings and fixing points. It is imperative that sails are always under the correct tension as flapping sails are firstly not safe to use and secondly  will very quickly become damaged in the process causing damage to  connected parts of the installation. Call Alfresco365 for service & maintenance inspections.

Sail Cleaning Sails pick up dirt, pollutants, and sky debris (Seagulls!!) from Day 1. That beautiful sail especially in Cities will soon become quite grubby and must be regularly cleaned as oil based pollutants become difficult to shift.  Whilst it is difficult to clean sails back to new we can really get them looking good.

Sail & Equipment Replacement We can measure your installation for a new sail or use the existing as a template.  We have a full range of 316 marine grade stainless steel  rigging parts available and we can fabricate from scratch.

Winterisation De-rig your sails in October, clean & store, re – rig pre Easter.

Alfresco365 Safety Report The Alfresco365 Safety Report for Commercial Installations will set your mind at rest for the forthcoming season or when taking over the use of an existing installation. Our engineer will undertake a full report on the state of condition of your installation and provide recommendations for a maintenance and upgrade programme.  Call for details.
