Awnings are one of the most cost-effective shade solutions for a home. They can be used to provide shade over patios, over doorways, over windows, over cars and even over pools – if there is an area of the home that needs shade, and it has a supporting wall, then an awning is probably your best solution.

Not all awnings are affordable. But let me let you in on a little secret: you don’t have to buy awnings from an awning company! There are other ways to go about purchasing domestic awnings which can save you a great deal of money.

That’s right! I said save, and who doesn’t love to save money! If you’re looking to by awnings for your home, then you will want to pay close attention to what I’m about to tell you – it may just save you hundreds of dollars!

But first, let me explain the standard process of buying awnings, as this will help to enlighten you on how you can save.

Process for buying Domestic Awnings

The typical process for buying domestic awnings is much the same as any other buying process; you shop around for suppliers, get quotes and choose the cheapest quote. The same applies to domestic awnings, but what you don’t realise is that nine times out of ten, the awning company doesn’t actually make the awning; they just install it.

This means there is a third-wheel in the equation; the manufacture, who supplies the awning to the installation company. The installation company then, in turn, adds a retail markup price on top of the manufacturer’s price.
