Paint an awning?

I have not had much luck with keeping the mold/mildew off my awning. Was thinking of "painting" it a darker color (now white) to cover up the discoloration. Has anyone tried it, heard of it?

I wouldn't think most paint would not hold up to the flexing and rolling. May be able to stain it, I would try a small discrete spot such as the inside of the flap to see how it goes.

Edit: I just recalled seeing paint to car seats before, this may work

Thought the same thing about the rolling/unrolling of the awning.

Yes, I have had car interior parts (leather/plastic) dyed/painted.

Will have to take a trip to my local Home depot and see what type of paints they may have.

Get a product called Wet and Forget. Itís a mold and moldew treatment. Great stuff. Use as directed. Last at least a year each application. Youíll thank me !
Look it up on google, get it through EBay for best price. You mix it 1 part to 4 parts water. Spray on let dry, Done. Easy Peasy I use it on awning, white vinyl fence, lawn furniture, ect. Florida is the worst for mildew and mold. Youíll be happy Iím sure.

Just asking... have you tried cleaning it and how have you gone about it. I've had acceptable results cleaning the underside of mine. 1/4 C Dawn and 1/4 C. bleach in a 1 gal pump sprayer. Spray underside, roll up for 10 min, unroll and hose off. Actually used electric pressure washer on it and amazed at results. Dont't forget to rinse off top of awning

I store it about 16 miles from my home, so do not clean it as often as I should. With the Florida humidity and rain it seems like it is always wet.
