All of our retractable awnings are designed to shed rainfall, providing the pitch or slope of the awning is adequate. There are several causes for water build up on your awning. The most common problem is the lack of pitch on the awning due to wall height restrictions. The second reason is, heavy down pours of rain in a short period of time. Be sure to retract the awning when there is apparent build up of water on the fabric. The weight of the water will cause the arm brackets to break and if there is ample water on the fabric, the fabric will stretch and the support bar may bend causing serious damage to the awning.
