What To Look For In A Great Awning Company

by | May 8, 2020 | Awnings, Blog

While they’re easy to overlook from time to time, awnings provide a much needed resource here in sunny California — shade. Awnings may look similar, however, all awnings are not made the same. In fact, almost every awning is completely unique, despite looking incredibly similar to other awnings of the same type. What really sets awnings apart from one another is the company that builds them. In today’s blog, Van Nuys Awning Co.®, the top-rated custom awning designer in the Los Angeles area, will be going over what you should look for in an awning company to make sure you get the best awning for your property.

They say it takes 10,000 hours to master something. While the exact number is up for debate, experience surely comes in handy for nearly every occupation and company. Some of the best businesses have tons of experience and are dedicated to continue learning new and better practices in order to optimize their product and their company. Knowing what to do and why you do something a certain way will help deliver an unrivaled product that stands the test of time as well as holds up against the elements.

Many awning companies will provide you with a great product, however most of the time that product is designed, built, and installed by different companies or contractors. Other times you’ll have to go through different companies to get a custom designed awning and have it professionally installed on your property. While this process isn’t necessarily bad, it does cost you extra time and money to complete. Not to mention all the stress and mishaps that come with having to carry big projects over to multiple teams and companies.

At Van Nuys Awning Co., you can have your custom awning designed, built, and installed, all by the same company.

Then, using some of the best awning materials on the market, we’ll construct your custom awning ourselves. Finally we’ll install your new awning on your property, helping to add value and provide shade for everyone.


If they’re built well, there’s nothing wrong with cookie cutter awnings. If they do their job and hold up well against weathering, then they’re good products. If the fact that there are dozens, if not hundreds, of the same product you have bothers you, then you may have a problem with buying a generic awning. Many awning companies use the same materials to construct their awnings for all of their customers. If the quality of the materials is up to par, then the integrity of your awning should be fine. However, if you’re looking for something unique for your property, then a generic awning just isn’t for you.
