SunSetter, an awning company, is heavily marketed toward do-it-yourselfers, often during television infomercials.

Extending nine to 11 feet away from the home, these awnings have assorted widths, ranging from 10 to as long as 20 feet.

How much does a SunSetter awning cost?

The cost of a SunSetter awning will depend on the size, if it’s manual/automatic, where you purchase it and if you need a professional contractor to help you install it.  On average, a manual awning can cost about $1,700 to $2,100, whereas a motorized version can cost about $2,400 to $3,300.  This is the price for the awning only and wouldn’t include any professional installation.  If you were to hire a professional to install the awning for you, then it’s safe to add another $300 to $500 to this price.  If you do need to hire a handyman, consider using HomeAdvisor.com to have local contractors send you their ballpark estimates for free.  Simply explain your job and watch the quotes come in.

A freestanding SunSetter awning, on the other hand, can cost about 20 percent less than the estimates mentioned.

SunSetter awning overview

SunSetter awnings are either manually opened, which uses a hand crank to open or close the awning, or an automatic awning, which opens and closes with a push of a button.

The awnings come in standard sizes, meaning they can’t be customized; however, they do offer a variety of styles and colors to complement your tastes.  The company offers four projection sizes and 28 fabrics to choose from.  All awnings are assembled in the USA.

The company does offer a five-year warranty covering the electronic components, fabric and frame, but as reviewers online have mentioned, this warranty is pro-rated, meaning the longer you have it, the less you will receive toward your repair.

What are the extra costs?

While optional, a wireless wind sensor can automatically close your awning on a windy day.  This type of device can cost close to $200.   LED lights, again, while optional, are also purchased to create a nice ambiance at night.  In some cases, a sensor may be included.  Other accessories include a mat, cleaning kit, awning cover, weather breaker panels and/or an awning hood.

From reading reviews online, replacement fabric is needed every five to seven years, depending on where you live; however, you can greatly extend your fabric’s life as long as you follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.  For example, the awning should always be retracted during a rain or windstorm since the rain can pool on the top, creating too much weight, and the wind can literally rip the awning away from the house.  If there’s ever a chance of rain or wind, it’s best to play it safe and retract your awning.  The SunSetter awning replacement fabric, if you were to replace it, could cost $350 to $550 for just the fabric, depending on your awning’s size.

Some dealers may charge a delivery fee, which is usually around $100.

Tips to know:

SunSetter awnings can be installed on stucco, aluminum, vinyl siding, wood or on bricks.  It can also be installed directly on overhangs and eaves with the right mouting equipment.
