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!
My husband and I installed the awning (8') with minimal difficulty (husband and wife working together!), the instructions were easy to follow, the quality of the materials are good, and the price was excellent. We selected a cream colored awning and thought debris and dirt would stain it; so far (one whole summer) any spots have washed off with a hosing.
The only negative item that comes to mind is that the awning flops in a medium to high wind. Our old awning had steel pipe for a frame and so it was weighted down more.
Many of our friends and relatives have given positive comments and one or two will be installing awnings after seeing ours. We are very pleased with the awning.
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.
very pleased with my awnings. The style was perfect, installation was easy and really saved my air conditioning bill. The awnings reduced the heat penetrating my house by 10 degrees!
I would buy them again and definitely would recommend them to other homeowners.
We were extremely pleased with the product, especially for the price. Installation was a breeze and it cooled both ours boys room temps down immensely (we live in az and get direct sun). We would highly recommend your company again.
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.
Our Classic style awnings will beautify any residential or commercial building while adding value. They are suitable for both windows and doors and will provide a custom awning look at a very affordable price. Window awnings block up to 77% of solar heat, reduce summer cooling costs by up to 20% and lower the temperature inside your home by up to 15 degrees (F), while helping to eliminate fading floor coverings and furniture.
When you don't want the shade, or expect strong winds, simply pull on the supplied cord to retract the awning.
All Classic awnings have a 31.5" drop and 26.5" projection. Note that the 31.5" drop includes a 6" valance.
1) Choose the awning dimensions. W is Width, D is Drop, P is Projection (how far the awning comes out from the wall). This awning is available in widths of 4, 6 or 8 feet.
2) Select the fabric color that best complements your home or business.
