Hire a Pro Advice: Install a Deck Awning

Get help finding an installer of a deck awning for your home.

By Gene and Katie Hamilton

Most of the companies who sell deck awnings have a list of distributors who also install them so that's the best choice for hiring a pro to do the job. The installation involves assembling the awning and installing it so a general contractor is the tradesman to hire if you buy the unit direct. They advertise in local newspapers, in the Yellow Pages listed as Contractors - General" and often you'll find a business card offering carpentry work in hardware stores, lumberyards and home centers.
