Carport Repairs from SBI Ltd.

Do you need your carport repair?

SBI Ltd (Sun Blinds Installations) have been trading since 1998 and because of our twenty plus years of experience, we offer you a wealth of knowledge, experience in all aspects of carport repair.

Director Michael Marsh has been in the carport and canopy industry for over 35 years. Having been trained in all aspects of carport repair, fault diagnosis he can repair most makes.

He set up his own company over 20 years ago to manufacture, install and repair carports. His knowledge is extensive and there are not many carport repairs that he hasn’t personally carried out.

“Our carport advisory teams can provide detailed reports on your behalf for insurance companies. We have installation teams throughout England and Wales that are happy to help with any problem you have.”

Over three days Michael and the competent team from SBI Ltd achieved what three other carport/canopy companies could not or would not do. The removal of the existing car port on the first day was a challenge especially during the inclement weather. The installation of the lovely new car port and roller shutter garage door was completed over the following two days and their workmanship was second to none. Many thanks to everyone involved including Pat and James.

How much does it cost to replace a carport?2021-10-09T12:08:10+01:00

This is a very hard question to answer. There are so many factors to take into account. For example, if you buy a DIY budget carport the cost could be a few hundred pounds. If you bought a made to measure luxury carport, with accessories you could spend upwards of £10’000. As you can see there is a massive difference in price. The cost comparison is similar to purchasing a car. You could buy a Mercedes Benz Maybach Exelero for £6.4 million or a Dacia Sandero for £6995. Both will give you protection from the elements but if you have a higher budget you get more for your money! The same is true when purchasing an awning.

IF YOUR AWNING IS OUT OF WARRANTY WE RECOMMEND CHANGING THE MOTOR & REMOTE!

  • The reason we recommend this course of action is if we can still get parts and service your awning.
  • It is well worth maintaining it as replacing with new will cost thousands of pounds.
  • If your motor is still working there will be a day in the future when it stops.
  • Normally you don’t get any warning that the motor is going to stop working it just STOPS!
  • Over the years we have found that the awning is normally fully extended when this happens.
  • The problem you then face is how are you going to CLOSE the awning? The answer is your not!
  • Thomas Sanderson Awnings do not have a manual override fitted to the awnings.
  • You can’t simply wind it away if the motor fails or there is a power cut.

Lack of Maintenance is Leading Cause of Awning Repair

  • The example above of this awning in need of repair shows what can happen when an awning is not maintained properly. This client got in touch as she had moved home and inherited this awning.

To extended over open spaces to shade from unwanted sunlight. Improper use can cause serious risk and damage.

Placing additional loads on the awning by hanging objects from it or anchoring ropes can cause damage or the awning to fail, and they are therefore not permissible.

Tethering an awning if it is stuck out in windy conditions may be permissible but seek expert advice.

Secure and safe use of the awning can only be assured if it is checked and maintained regularly.

The awning must be checked regularly for signs of wear or damage to the parts.
Should any damage be discovered, the dealer or a suitable servicing company should be called to carry out the repair.

Check the awning regularly for signs of wear or damage to the wiring.
Contact the dealer or a suitable servicing company should any damage be discovered.

Even low-maintenance products require care and attention.

Carrying out the following maintenance and care work as and when required.

Either once in spring or if the awnings have stood idle for an extended period of time.

This work will extend the useful life of your system.

It is important to immediately remove any leaves and other foreign bodies as well as dirt.

Leaves and other foreign bodies on the awning canvas, in the awning casing. In the guide-rails must be removed immediately.

There is a risk of damage to the awning or it failing if they are left and not cleared away.

At all times, please ensure that you only remedy errors that can be eliminated through maintenance and care.

All other malfunctions should solely be addressed by your specialist dealer SBI Ltd.

As your specialist awning company, we are ready to service, repair and clean your awning.

We have willing staff ready to help, fast and properly trained.

Our service includes checking the wall fixings, retaining bolts and tightening where required.

Our installers check and test the moving parts.

Clean and lubricate the arms to help provide smooth opening and closing of the awning.

SBI’s installers check the pitch and adjust it if it is too shallow.

The awning needs a steeper angle as it helps the rainwater run off the cover.

A steeper angle will also help the awning not to bounce around as much in windier conditions.

Our installers open the awning to test the inward and outward limits are set correctly.

The electric motor is also checked along with the controls and sensors.

On completion of the work, we will issue you with a dated service certificate for your records.

SBI’s installers wash the awning with a LOW-PRESSURE washer.

Cleaning the awning cover entails applying chemical cleaning solutions to the cover and valance.

Please note do-not have the cover cleaned with high-pressure washers as this can damage the cover!

One of the weakest parts of the cover is the stitching and this can break if a high-pressure washer is used.

SBI clean the aluminium elements at least once a year – and even more often if heavily soiled.

To do so, we use clean water only, which may also contain minor amounts of neutral or very weak alkaline detergents.
