How to Select an Online Awning Wholesaler:
For those awning buyers who want to install their own retractable awning or patio shades, buying from one of the online wholesalers we recommend above can be a great way to save a lot of money.
Both Costco and Home Depot sell a lot of retractable awnings in Vernon, the Okanagan Valley, as well as across Canada. This is mainly done to their high-quality products, low wholesale level prices, and amazing return policies.
There are some drawbacks though to buying an awning from a local Big Box store.
- Selection: Although there are a lot of colors and sizes to choose from with these online awning sellers, there is definitely a better selection from a local full-service awning company. For example, the new awning showroom of Okanagan Shade and Shutter is one of the largest in the entire Okanagan Valley. They will custom-size your awning down to the 1/4″ if necessary. They also have hundreds of styles and colors of awning fabrics to choose from.
- Professional Installation: Installation can be pretty straightforward for a lot of retractable awnings, but there is nothing like having a seasoned team of professional local installers to make sure your awning is installed correctly.
Should you choose to go the route of using an online awning supplier like Costco or Home Depot in Vernon, you can also hire a local contractor to do your installation for you. Just make sure they have experience installing awnings and stand behind their workmanship should you have any issues. Be aware that Central Tent and Awning in Vernon BC is no longer in the business of selling awnings, but they make great tarps.
