How to Select a Local Awning Company:

There are a number of awning companies and shade suppliers to choose from in Vernon, B.C. Some of these companies also do RV awnings in Vernon BC.

The first question to ask yourself is if you feel that you are capable of installing your own retractable awning or if you would rather have a professional full-service awning company supply and install your awning for you.

If you feel confident about installing your own shade product, you will find a number of awning suppliers that can supply you with retractable awnings at wholesale prices. These are usually Big Box stores or online awning retailers. Costco Awnings and Home Depot Awnings have a proven track record and a fantastic return policy. Although you will find the awning prices from the big box retailer much less expensive than the full-service awning companies, you will also find that the awning sizes and fabric selections much more limited from the big box stores.

Vernon has a few full-service awning companies to choose from, but make sure that you are dealing with a reputable awning company. Beware of companies that use fake reviews from friends, family, and employees to top up their online reviews. Also, watch out for deceptive sales techniques that are used to sell you an awning at a higher price with features that you don’t need. You can learn more about this on our ” What to look for when buying a retractable awning” page.  Your ideal awning supply company should be 100% locally owned and have a history of quality, professional installs. When you live in Vernon, you want to shop with 100% Vernon-owned companies.

Another option for you is you are looking for a lower-cost solution for cooling your home is window tinting. In Vernon BC we recommend Sunshine Autographics for window tinting. For both automotive window tinting or residential tinting.

So when getting quotes on your awning or shade product, remember to ask them if they are 100% Vernon-owned.

If you are located in the Sicamous or Salmon Arm area, here are some sites that service those areas in the Shuswap.
