Cheaper Fabrics can degrade faster, rip, tear, and become unsightly because they are not made to last. Cheaper fabrics don’t have the extra coatings that make the fabric last years. You might have to replace that $200 fabric in one year. But, if you go with that quality fabric for $300, you get a warranty (often it’s up to two-years by the supplier) and it lasts for two to -three years. You’re saving yourself $200 in fabric costs plus the replacement installation costs.
When you start thinking about commercial buildings and the size of those awnings, using a quality fabric is important as well. You don’t want to interrupt your business with the inconvenience of construction every year because you have a cheap awing fabric. You want that textile to last and using a high-quality fabric is the first step in making sure you’re not just making a good investment, but saving money.
