The cost of labour plays a major factor in the cost of awning installation. Awning installers charge more by the hour when tasks require more elbow grease. For example, simple fixed awning installation costs lower for labour than motorised awnings that need to be installed on the house's second story.

Bespoke or off-the-shelf awnings

Awnings can either be bought in-store or tailor-made to your liking. When it has customised measurements, it is called a bespoke awning. This is an ideal option if your doors or windows are not made to be standard-sized. Homeowners also choose to get bespoke awnings if they want their colour customised. The cost of custom-made awnings ranges from £1,000 to £10,000

Size of the awning

The larger the awning, the more expensive the installation costs will be. It takes more time and probably more people to install a bigger awning than standard-sized awnings. You can expect the cost of labour to go up as well.
