We live in Phoenix AZ and installed the awning on our west window. It is one of the things we have done to help lower our energy costs and I might add, one of the best things we have done to do so. It seems to control the heat coming in much better than a sun screen plus it is very attractive.
It was very easy to install...my husband & I are in our 70's, in great physical health, and we were able to do it quite successfully. I do recommend that a powered screwdriver be used however. Makes it much easier. We ordered the awning in brown, as that is the color of the trim on our home, and it matches almost perfectly. Because of our monsoon storms here in the summer, we also found it very easy to roll up & down.
We are considering ordering 2 more for the windows we have on our southern exposure. The price is more than fair and the quick shipping was amazing. In our opinion there is no better company for awnings!
I purchased two 8ft awnings in the spring to put on the front of my sunporch that gets sun all day long. Before the awnings we were not able to use this porch during the hot weather. The awnings were fairly easy to install and seem to be of good quality. I only wish I had seen the portion of your web site that said to measure the length of the windows also. The sun comes underneath them in the late afternoon. The porch is up high. My fault not yours. All and all you have a very good product.

I purchased an awning to go over a sliding patio door, and I could not have been more pleased. It arrived quickly, quality materials, and was very easy to assemble and install, and adds so much to the appearance of the patio. The price I thought was a great bargain considering the well crafted construction. I would not hesitate to recommend your products. It's really a great product.
We love our awning and love the detail it has added to our home. We have received many many compliments.
A great product, received my 6 foot awning this afternoon, installed in about an hour and a half. Only suggestion is that you should consider making a 7 foot awning. That would be a bit better over my sliding patio door (an 8 foot would be a bit too long). Otherwise, delighted with the product!!!
The installation was straightforward, and surprisingly, the 2-hour estimate of time required was accurate. The product is well-made, instructions are complete, and delivery after ordering was on-time. I am very satisfied with your product.
The awning is easy to install and pull up for winter. It is a great deal.
