Alutex Awnings

A retractable awning attached to the house is an attractive option for many people. It provides ready access to shade when you want it and retracts to let the sunshine in when you’re ready for it. It can also block glare into an adjoining room of the house. Alutex is a preferred awning manufacturer based in Ringwood, NJ

Altex Awnings are some of the best in the business. They produce beautifully designed well-built awnings. They even offer a 10-year warranty because they’re so confident in their work.  They offer a large selection of awnings – the most popular being the Madera Model.

Key Specs for Sales

If you’re looking for a shade system that fits a larger space, the Alutex Madera Giant is a great option as well. The Madera Giant has up to a 20′ projection – the only awning in the industry that can claim this achievement. This feat is accomplished by installing a double torsion bar with very large shoulders to support the weight of the arms. For maximum support, a 2×16 ledger board will also be affixed to the building. 

Unparalleled space is the Madera Giant’s claim to fame, but it does come at a price. These awnings typically sell for $15-20k. Depending on overall size.

The width needs to be 23 or wider for a 20’ projection

How much do Alutex Awnings Cost?

One of the great things about Alutex Awnings is they have a broad range of shade solutions to fit your budget.

  • The type of awning you purchase: Each awning design has its price point. 
  • The size of the awning: The bigger the awning the more costly it is for obvious reasons. 
  • The fabric you select: Some fabrics cost more than others. 
  • Did you choose a motorized or manual system: Adding a motor to your awning is convenient but it also has a price tag – approximately $1,200 – 1,600 more. 
  • Did you select wind and sun sensors: These sensors help protect your awning in bad weather and will maximize energy savings. Each sensor will cost about $385.00.
  • Installation: This isn’t something you want to skimp on. Awnings are heavy and you don’t want one to come down on your head. The price of installation is $1,200 -1,800 on average.
