Here at Awning Design we are pleased to answer your questions regarding the many types of awnings and solar screens we manufacture, install and service. Listed below are answers to consumers most frequently asked questions, but you are welcome to contact us and speak with our friendly awning consultants to discuss your individual needs.

Do you do your work in house, or outsource to others? – (Please Watch Video)
That is a great question!In short… Yes we do all our work in house in our own showroom and our very own manufacturing facility. We could try to describe the process, but we thought instead of simply reading about it, you would like to view the process yourself and see exactly what we do!

We have a great team, we love what we do, and you will love the results we provide. Please contact us anytime to schedule a free consult or estimate!

How much will a retractable awning cost?
Our pricing is very competitive for the superior quality products we offer. We represent two of the nations leading retractable awning manufacturers in Durasol & NuImage brands, plus our own value inspired Sunblok awning. That gives you 10 models to consider…more than anyone else!

Every awning is custom-made to the customers specifications, backed by an extensive factory warranty and our own installation warranty. With our free on-site solar evaluation, we can give you an accurate estimate on various options to solve your sun problems.

You don’t receive that level of service with a simple phone quote!

Are there any discounts or promotions available?
Yes. We offer seasonal discounts and manufacturer rebates whenever they are available. Check the SPECIALS tab for our latest promotions.
All retractable awnings are the same…aren’t they?
No. Durasol Systems* & Craftbilt are long-time American awning companies who manufacture their own frame components (very important) in state-of-the-art facilities (TUV/CE Approved*), then use the world’s leading brands of 100% dyed acrylic fabrics and electronic motors to create the best-made retractable awnings available, backed with warranties of up to 12 full years. Our long-term value will always exceed your investment.
How long will it take to have my new retractable awning?
In most cases, we can install a new custom-made retractable awning in 4 weeks from the date of order. Any electrical work required (after the awning is installed) may take several days longer.
Who will install my awning?
We employ our own installers and service technicians, who are educated and highly experienced in the process of awning installations for residential and commercial projects. They will demonstrate the proper use and care for your awning and support all manufacturer & company warranties. Plus, they are really great guys too!
If I purchase a motorized awning, will I need an electrician?
Depending on the model of awning and type of electrical installation you choose (hardwire switch, remote control, or plug-in) a NJ licensed electrician may be required to make the proper installation. Awning Design partners with several area licensed electrical contractors and will guide you in this process. You may use your own NJ licensed electrician as well.
What size awning is right for my home?
Awning Design offers a free on-site analysis of your sun affected area for retractable, stationary, window & door awnings or solar screens. This is the best way to properly evaluate your needs and provide solutions which will solve your sun related problems. You can’t get that from a phone quote. Call us today for an appointment.
