The process of ordering and installing the awning was an excellent experience. I had done a lot of online searching, and had my reliable handyman make all the required measurements. He placed the original order by phone. I then made contact by phone, in which the order was finalized, and changed a few details. The installation was quite simple, using the instructions provided.
I am very happy with the awning: it's made of high-quality materials and provides exactly the level of sun protection required, so the illustrations and dimensions provided gave us all the information needed to fulfill my objectives. The color is a very good match to the movable sunshade on an adjacent slider, and to the shade umbrella over our deck table. In all, I am a very satisfied customer.
We recently installed the awning we purchased last November. It looks great and we decided to do the rest of the window on our building which is mostly block. The awning really dress them up and give the plain block appearance a more appealing look. The installation was fairly easy and now that I have done one, the rest will be really easy. The cost compared to having them made and installed here locally was less than half.
Just want to let you know we received the awnings yesterday. I was able to assemble and mount them in under an hour. Very happy with the quality and craftsmanship. Overall we are very happy with them. They look great.

The awning purchase was an easy process, just select the size, and determine which swatch of design / color material will work for you. The awnings arrived in the time frame they were expected, the quality is terrific and easy to install, and easy to remove if necessary. I'm extremely pleased and would highly recommend General Awnings.
Love the awnings. Adds such a nice appearance to the house. Haven't had them up long enough to know how they will "hold up" but we're hoping for the best. After my hubby put the first one up, (a little lengthy in time) the rest went up with ease.
Customer service was great and shipping was even sooner than we had expected.
It took our contractor, a handy man , about 1 hour to install 3 of our awnings, making the total cost less than half of awnings that were quoted by contractors. Everyone loves them and they look great, really dressing up our building.
We love the awning as it has made this second floor room much cooler. It matches our siding and was very easy for son to install. This spring we expect more of our condo owners to order this awning. We had a local bid for a similar awning but, it was double the cost! Thank You
I Love what the awnings did to the curb appeal of our house. We've received man positive comments by the community. Thanks for building a good looking product that is easily installed by the average home owner.
This summer we purchased a small awning to go above our kitchen window. We needed a little shade relief and this was perfect! It also looks great! It was a little tricky getting up to where we needed to anchor the top metal strip into the house and even trickier to get positioned to caulk the strip for weather proofing, but everything else was easy. The awning has held up really well through our very wet Washington weather and we are very glad we made this purchase.
I fitted my modest 1940's house in Seattle (where it rains a lot) with new awnings and I have received numerous compliments on how much nicer my home looks. It also is a great way to protect my windows from the weather. It was money well invested.
