After shopping the big box stores for a new awning, we realized that we would have to go on line to find something that fit our specific needs. Locally, there was a very limited number of sizes and colors to choose from. General Awnings not only offered many size and color combinations, but their prices were the best we saw. Throw in the free shipping and it was a no-brainer.
Our awning came before the expected arrival date and it was undamaged, had easy-to-understand instructions and went up in less than an hour. We couldn't be happier with General Awnings, it's products and service.
We have had the awnings for almost a year now and we are very pleased. They were easy to install. They were delivered to us in less time than we expected. Thank you for a good product. They have held up during heavy snow, wind and torrents of rain with not a bit of damage. I would recommend these to anyone. Thank you.
My husband and I are both senior citizens, so we do have difficulty doing some things. But the awning was very easy to put up. We had no difficulty with it at all, and it stopped the rain from coming in around the door. We are very satisfied with our purchase of the awning. Thanks again.

The awning is great, but it is a little thinner than I expected. I should have used an assistant in attaching it to the house, but other than that it was very easy to install, perhaps an hour in total. When I heard what my neighbor paid for hers, more than ten times more, I was thrilled I had found your product on line. I would highly recommend this product to any home owner or do it yourselfer. It has already kept me from getting wet getting in and out of the car about ten times already so I figure it has paid for itself.
The awning is working just fine. Its real job is to keep rain off the door and reduce the amount that collects around the floor area. It is doing that just fine. It has withstood several windy storms. I assembled the awning myself, so it is not really a tough job. Although I recommend two people to actually hang the awning in place. It solved my problem at a reasonable expense.
OK, finally nice weather. I modified your 42 x 36 awning into two awnings of 42x18"-- I just wanted something to shield the window from normal rain and allow the window to be open during gentle rainstorms in the summer and don't want to worry about a surprise shower damaging the wood interior wood frames. From the side, these have a very minimal look to them which is what I was going for.
The quality of the awning was not as good as I expected it to be. I am concerned that it will blow down at the next windy storm.
Was easy to assemble, easy to install. Not the greatest nor the worst. For the price it worked out fine.
A powerful thunderstorm struck the area with high winds and heavy rain several hours after my son and I installed the awning. Any misgivings I may have had about its integrity was quickly dispelled. It has been an asset to the basement entrance where it is located.
The pictures in the photocopied installation instructions were very poor. It took me two tries to assemble the panels to the side pieces correctly. A more detailed photo may have been helpful. I am well satisfied with my purchase.
The quality of the product was ok, but in all fairness I was looking for a low end model. Installation was easy enough but had a little difficulty keeping the sides onto the awning until I was able to get a screw in. Would be a bit nicer if the sides snapped in or locked in prior to screwing. Once mounted it seamed to be solid. Will let you know how it holds up for the winter.
