And while our customers love our bespoke awnings, they often wonder: ‘how much does an awning cost?

The average cost of an awning in the UK can range from £1,000 to £5,000+, depending on a variety of factors such as the style, materials used, and location of installation.

Like most things, you get what you pay for. Premium awnings that use high-quality materials and boast a long lifespan may be at the higher end of the scale, but they can actually be the best financial choice in the long run due to their longevity and the value they add to a property.

In this article, we’ll break down the costs associated with purchasing and installing an awning, and discuss the pros and cons of different awning types.

Are There Any Additional Costs When Installing an Awning?

While the cost of the awning itself is the main expense, there can be additional costs associated with installation. These may include:

  • Labour

Hiring a professional to install your awning could cost between £150 and £500, depending on the complexity of the installation.

  • Brackets and fixings

Some awning models may require additional brackets or fixings, which can add £50 to £100 to your overall cost.

  • Electrical work

If you opt for a motorised awning, you may need to factor in the cost of electrical work, which can range from £100 to £300.
