Consider the following 4 steps while installing your mobile home awning. You may need a hammer, screwdriver and an assistant.
Prepare the site of installation: Commencing by carrying inspection of the site of installation by checking the frame (door, window and patio) frames stability because it might be loose or cracked and check the status of its structural stability. Check for the frame rot and any other damage and if it actually in poor condition consider replacing it or otherwise clean and smoothen the area and advance to the next step.
Fix the Brackets: Having done with the frame status, install supporting top brackets at the top corners of the frame. First, use a tape measure, a level and a pencil to mark the area where you will attach the brackets and make screw holes using a driller. Join the brackets to the frame by fastening the screws through the door, patio or window trim. You may require additional support by adding more brackets over the window, door or patio depending on the size and shape of the awning.
Assemble the Arms and Create the Awning Frame: You are halfway the installation process where you have to connect the bracing units to the end of each top bracket. It is along the length of the awning where the stringers will be hanging. Then, attach the return arms followed by affixing one end of the arms to the wall and join the free end of the return arm to the bracing units. It automatically fits in at end of each unit. Now, the framework of the awning is ready, move to the last step.
Place the Roofing: Regardless of the type of roofing material, simply place the material in between the stringers. Start at the top and stretch the roofing material down. Once you have completely covered the length of the frame, secure them in place at the bottom. Your awning is now perfectly installed and ready to use.
