My experience with the door canopy was great! The instructions were easy to understand, the holes all lined up, the pieces were all there, the canopy was light enough to lift and set into its final place. I am a 58 year old woman and was installing it on the porch for my 90 year old aunt. I am very handy with tools, but walking up a ladder and lifting the canopy was my biggest fear - all for nothing, it was easy.
My aunt lives on the east coast and has been dealing with a lot of snow, and the canopy is extremely sturdy. I also called the company with questions two different times before I ordered to make sure I would have the right tools with me, and I was able to speak with a real person immediately and both times they were very knowledgeable about their products. I also needed the canopy to arrive by a particular date, since I was flying coast to coast to install the canopy and it arrived with time to spare. sum up: quality product, great customer service, the product was exactly as described and made to my exact specs: Always Buy American Made!!!

I want to express my gratitude and pleasure with the 2500 series awning and side wings kit... This was absolutely the finest quality kit of any kind I have ever purchased and assembled... Every piece fit perfectly and every hole lined up exactly as it should... My compliments to you... It was fun to assemble and easy to install, and it looks great... Thanks again
We were thrilled with the fact that we were able to order our new awnings to the exact custom size that we wanted. I love how the color selection allowed us to choose a color that would go well with the custom paint job on our house. The awnings held up well over the winter with heavy rains and snow. The gutter feature works very well on the far edge of the awning.
All in all we are very pleased with the materials in the awning. They have held up well so far and look very sharp on our home. Thank you again for the great product and service.
I received excellent service from General Awnings. The customer representative was extremely helpful. It only took about a week from the time it was ordered until it arrived at my home. The contractors had it installed in about an hour. Everyone comments on how attractive it is. Thanks very much - I would not hesitate to recommend General Awnings to anyone, and will certainly return when I decide to add some more.
I purchased the 2500W Series Door Canopy to install at my lake cabin. I have a barn red metal roof on the cabin and the barn red and beige awning matches the color perfectly. I installed the awning myself quite easily. The awning parts fit perfectly and I was able to get it ready to install above the door in 30 minutes or so. The part that attaches to the wood went up first and the awning easily slid into the slot.
The 2500W Series replaced a cloth awning that became discolored and just didn't do the job. The metal awning is made of high quality metal and aluminum and I expect it to last a long time and to look good. I am very pleased with the purchase and would highly recommend the awning to others.
We love the awning. It is attractive and functional. The only problem we had when we installed it was that the front of the house was not exactly flat. We had to us a few stainless washers behind one of the screws to adjust it to keep everything plumb.
I thought the product was fairly easy to put together and it was simple to install. We had it up in under an hour. We did wish that it was a bit "deeper" but it is true to its measurements so that is a personal observation.
I did appreciate that it is very lightweight as the awning we were replacing was much heavier and hence difficult to handle especially for one person balancing on a ladder. Overall, I would say that we are pleased with the awning and we have no complaints.

I found the awning project to be a relatively easy DIY project. The instructions were clear, and the parts fit together well; not perfectly, but well enough that the final result is straight and strong. I was very impressed with the quality of the material and the strength of the finished installation, given its very light weight. It's been in place for several months and works perfectly (once I figured out the drainage details). A good product and a good experience.
I was very pleased with my purchase of an awning from General Awnings. I originally went to a large box store and spent significant time just finding an associate to wait on me and they did not know the awning products or seem to have any experience ordering that type of product.
At General Awnings I was able to locate what I needed quickly (size, color, extras i.e. side bars). I called your company and got right through to an associate that said the item was not in stock, but still gave me a firm date for delivery. The product was delivered right on time and everything was correct and packaged well.
Awnings are not that complex so assembly and installation was very easy. I had winds of 50 mph since I installed it and just one snow storm of 6" and it was fine. The product is well built and I plan to order more products from your company. Overall my experience was excellent.
I am EXTREMELY happy with the 2500W canopy I bought a couple of years ago - except for one thing. I bought the 7'x42" and wish I would have bought a larger one! :)
