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.
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.
Everything arrived intact and I installed the awning today within 2 hours (first time). Great quality and nice machine work. Thank You.
The awning I ordered was for my back porch. It came very quickly, in mint condition, and was installed easily and immediately by a local carpenter. I was very happy with this purchase and am hopeful of ordering a bigger awning for my front porch as soon as finances allows!
Overall, I had a good experience with General Awnings. I purchased 3 awnings, and all worked great and were easy to assemble and mount. I thought the price was a little high for the awnings I purchased, but overall it was a good experience. I would recommend General Awnings to friends and family and would rate them 9 on a scale of 1 to 10.
I bought the awning to go over my swimming pool filter and pumps. I'm very satisfied with the quality of its construction and ease of assembly. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I had it assembled and mounted on a brick wall in less than an hour.
