Why Quality Matters When Purchasing Awnings and Blinds

Awnings and blinds are fantastic additions to your home that add more value than just being a way to escape the weather. High-quality awnings and blinds can improve kerbside appeal, increase the liveable area of your home, and create new levels of comfort, style, and convenience.

Whether you want to spend more time in your outdoor area to enjoy the frequently perfect Perth, WA weather, entertain friends, or you need more room to spread out, quality awnings and blinds will help you do all these things and more.

When choosing awnings and blinds, quality should feature at the top of your list. You may like the price of cheaper alternatives but saving a few dollars on your initial purchase will usually cost you more in the long run. Here’s why quality should always matter most when you are shopping for awnings and blinds.

1. Brand Reputation

Great brand reputations are an excellent indicator of what you can expect when dealing with an awnings and blinds supplier. Sure, a supplier’s reputation is built on offering fantastic service, but it also stands on the quality parts and materials that go into their end products.

Soltex, Perth, WA only deal with locally and internationally renowned suppliers which can deliver the highest quality components and materials that are guaranteed to provide decades of reliable service.

2. Better Customer Care and After Sales Service

For Soltex, the sale and installation are just the beginning of the customer’s journey with us, not the end. We strive to provide not only the highest-quality shade solutions around Perth but also the best customer care and after-sales service.

Our products are built tough and will function reliably for years, but they will require the occasional maintenance, servicing, and cleaning. For this reason, Soltex are available to help you with any problems you may have, answer your questions, or help you keep your awnings and blinds in tip-top condition.

With Soltex standing behind the products they sell, your blinds will always work well and look as good as the day you had them installed. It’s the sort of service that’s hard to come by these days.

3. Reliable Longevity

Your house will be around for a long time, so it’s reasonable to expect your shade solution to go the distance as well.

Cheaper awnings and blinds can’t withstand constant exposure to the elements, and they will start to lose their appeal after just a couple of Perth summers. 

Cheaper material fades and tears under the constant bombardment of harsh UV rays and winds. Inferior materials will rust, break, and fail much sooner than you expected. Don’t expect a supplier of cheap shade solutions to be around when you need them.

4. Much Better Value Over Time

The savings you make on the purchase of a low-quality shade solution are soon lost on the cost of an early replacement. Make a sensible investment and go with the quality product you know will last.

It may cost a little more initially, but it will still be working and looking great 10 or 15 years from now while the cheaper, inferior products are taking up space in the local landfill.

5. Environmental Sustainability

Inferior products usually end up in landfill while high-quality solutions are still doing what they were designed to do decades after installation. When you purchase high-quality shade solutions created from recyclable materials, you are doing your part for the environment while also improving your home’s energy efficiency.

6. Quality Materials and Their Origins

Is your shade solutions supplier open about their industry relationships? A big part of creating a quality product is always using the best materials and components, even if that means going international.

In the way that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, awnings and blinds are only as good as the components that go into their creation. Even one low-quality piece can ruin the entire product, which is why Soltex have built strong relationships with only the best suppliers in the industry.

7. Solid Warranties for Peace of Mind

It’s always good to know that a company will stand behind its products by offering the best warranties. You can be sure your awnings and blinds will last when you have a five or 10-year warranty backing them up.

Soltex warranties extend from the products themselves to the installation. Trained professionals carry out every installation according to the industry guidelines and strict Australian standards. At Soltex, we are so confident in the quality of the products and the professionals who install them that each one comes with a 5-year work quality guarantee.

You can expect to get years of use out of your Soltex shade solution, but it’s good to know that you are covered should anything go wrong through no fault of your own.

8. Pride of Ownership

You’ve gone to a lot of trouble and expense to create a comfortable home that looks fantastic and is a joy to live in. Awnings and blinds are an extension of your home, so they should reflect the same values and pride. Soltex solutions are available in a wide range of configurations and features. With so much choice, you can tailor a solution that will complement the comfort and style you have spent so much time creating and one that you will be proud to show off to your friends, family, and neighbours.

All awnings and blinds solutions from Soltex are unique and designed to complement and enhance your property’s architectural look and feel. Excellent, high-quality shading is essential to making the most of Perth, WA, weather.

Don’t risk your budget or your comfort to cheap, inferior solutions that will blow away at the first summer storm, quickly fade in the sun, or stop working once the too-short warranty expires. Whether the summer sun is beating down or the rain is blowing sideways, you can be sure that Soltex awnings and blinds will keep you cool or warm and dry and keep on doing it for decades.
