You can get a cheaper awning from costco or anyone but you cant get the excellent service and installation. My husband and I read all the DIY information and we are handy. After all was said and done we went with Calgary Tent and Awning. They were awesome. The colour palate, the installation and frankly the feel of the hardware shows that this one will last and look good for a long time. No regrets and we recommend this company to everyone, if they doubt us, we let them open our huge beautiful awning.
