AWNING COST FACTORS
The cost of your awning is directly related to the size of the awning. How much will you need? If you have a large amount of space to cover, this will be something to keep in mind.
While style plays a large part in how we build your awning and does influence the cost, it plays less of a roll than the other factors.
Some awning projects are extremely diverse from others. These projects require a lot of specialization. This is well worth the investment while having somewhat of a low impact on cost.
Awning materials are very diverse. From synthetic fabrics to metal to solar panels, the more costly the material, the more your awning will cost.
