Industry Overview

In the course of your research, you will quickly discover that with awnings, like everything else, you get what you pay for.

It is quite a challenge to buy an awning with the right blend of : QUALITY, PRICE and SERVICE.

Awning providers fall into 3 broad categories that typically have these characteristics:

1. National Retailers

  • Potentially low price
  • No installation or service backing
  • Marginal quality with guarantees of 90 days to 5 year Pro-Rated (in year 3 you have lost 60% of your guarantee)

The problem here is that a third party installer often leaves the client with the burden to prove that a problem is due to bad product and not faulty installation. The client also has to manage the problem and pay significant amounts for servicing, while the manufacturer only provides parts.

2. Local “boutique type” specialist manufacturers

  • High price
  • Potentially good quality
  • Potentially good service
  • Low volume, high owner involvement and high overhead costs prohibits low prices – unless “subsidized” by poor quality or poor service.

3. Dealers specialists . . .
who do not manufacture, but focus on sales, installation and service.

  • Potentially good prices
  • Quality according to the factory of origin
  • Potentially good service.
  • The lack of customization and local manufacturing capacity limits the product range to that of their national manufacturer.
