Balcony awning


I am looking for a company that installs balcony awnings. I know there are lots of companies that do this but would be very grateful if anybody has a company they could recommend based on their personal experience with them (if they speak english, even better).

Thanks very much.

Re: Balcony awning

As you look at one of the companies who custom make awnings, do some price comparison at Hornbach.

I had three awnings - manual, not electric - made from a local firm. Yes they are quite nice, and I am very happy with them.

However, I paid a fortune for them. The smallest awning was (IIRC, I don't have the receipt to hand) CHF 1500, the middle one was 2200, the largest 2700.

A year later, I saw Hornbach had awnings in the exact same material for ca 300-800 each. No, they were not custom made, but the size difference was a few centimeters - I could easily have used these. Hornbach will recommed an installer if you wish.
