5 Steps to Awning Installation
  1. 1. Go with a pro

    The method of installing retractable awnings varies according to their type, model, and size. Projects like the installation of retractable awnings should take most pros a few hours to complete.

  2. 2. Select the right company

    One option is to hire a carpenter, which is often the course of action if you purchase an awning that does not come with installation services.

  3. 3. Assess your building

    First examine the area where you want to install an awning. Because awnings weigh about 10 pounds per square foot, ask a pro to assess if your wall is sturdy enough to handle such a load.

  4. 4. Take care with placement

    When trying to decide how high you want your awnings, keep in mind that you should have enough clearance for everyone to walk under the awning safely and comfortably.

  5. 5. Hire an installer

    Search for local awning contractors and dealers in your area and call them to check if they have the particular model that you want.
