Product Consultation and Installation
The majority of our business is dedicated to helping you find the perfect product to meet your unique needs. We're with you from the very beginning, meeting and consulting with you, taking measurements, ordering custom products, and completing your final installation.
At Dave Long Protective Products, we provide a full line of awning services which include repairs and cleaning, storage, and thorough inspection and maintenance services as required for everything we sell.
Washing and Reconditioning Awnings, Window, and Porch Shades
Awnings and other protective products need to be properly cleaned and maintained to ensure you get the longest life possible out of them. Let us wash and recondition your awnings to make them look as good as new.
For the do-it-yourself types out there, this can be done at home with laundry soap and a scrub brush. After gently scrubbing your fabric, rinse it well and air dry. Afterward, you can renew your product's water repellency with 303 Fabric Guard or 303 Aerospace Protectant, which can be conveniently purchased directly from our shop.
We can normally reuse your awning frames as long as they're in good condition. We'll clean them up and reskin the frames with your choice of fabric.
We're able to repair almost any canvas or heavy duty fabric you have. We recommend you give us a call at 319-338-3164 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance to give us a description of the repair you're seeking. We do not repair trampolines, seat belts or pool covers.
Storage and Reinstallation
Many clients prefer to have their awnings removed for the winter. This is no problem at all! We provide this service for a fee based on the time involved plus a fixed storage cost. We'll remove your awnings and inspect them for any signs of wear or damage. If the damage is found, you'll be contacted with an approximate repair cost.
It's entirely up to you if you'd like the repairs made or not. Your awnings will be stored in a clean and dry storage area until you call us in the spring for reinstallation. This process significantly helps to extend the life of your awnings.
Design work is included with each job we perform for you. Consulting fees for projects that are not executed by Dave Long Protective Products begin at $100 per hour.
