First, the product was shipped quickly. I actually received the awnings much quicker than I expected so had plenty of time to put them together prior to the actual installation. I found the assembly to be not too difficult considering the fact that I'm the guy who never reads instructions! I did put the first one together incorrectly and I can assure you that I learned quickly.
By the time I put my fourth awning together I was flying! I was amazed at not only how light the awnings were but how solid and strong they were. I thought the design ingenious. My good friend, a General Contractor with over 45 years experience helped me actually install the awnings. He could not believe the quality of the awnings for the price I paid. I finally showed him the receipt to prove I wasn't pulling his leg. These awnings were at least 60% less expensive than what the local awning company could offer and much more attractive.
The economy awnings from the local companies looked the part, cheap and flimsy. Your awnings blew the competition away! Installation was easy. I'm sure we didn't spend more than a few minutes on each installation.
The awnings have been in place for several months now and look brand new. They provided immediate benefit from the shade they produced during the hot summer. Esthetically they added a very nice accent to the house we installed them on. Overall I am very pleased and would use no other company for any awning needs in the future.
We received the awnings and put them up immediately on the two windows that face the West end of our home. We are very pleased, as they protect us from the sun and elements exactly as promised. Instructions on assembly were easy to understand. I assembled them on the garage floor out of the wind and elements and put them up in one piece, rather that trying to make numerous trips up the ladder. They still look new after weathering several rain and wind storms and one good hail storm that resulted in some roof damage, however the awnings still look new! I would rate them with the highest number 5, as I could not expect to find anything better!
The two awnings arrived in perfect condition. After reading the directions, I decided to assemble the complete awnings in my garage. I first pre-drilled holes, using the mounting rail, where we wanted the awnings. Then completed the assembly.
With my wife holding one end up, and me the other, I bolted the awnings to the house. They look beautiful, are of excellent quality, and provide the shade, for the inside rooms, that we wanted. The awnings were reasonable priced. Excellent quality for the price. I recommend these awnings.
I got the awning put up and it looks GREAT! I had awnings on all my windows but one. The previous homeowner did not install one on one of the north windows. ?? Any how, rain was rotting the sill and a new awning needed to be installed. Yours was easy for one person(me) to install and as I said earlier, it looks and performs great. I painted it to match the others and the paint sticks well to it. I have just recently built a sunroom/enclosed porch on the back of my house and am going to need several more for those windows. When I get ready, yours will be the ones I install. Thanks for a great product.
These awnings are exactly what I was looking for. All parts and pieces were well packed and protected. All holes were in exactly the correct position and had been deburred. The included hardware is top notch. All in all a high quality product where attention to detail is apparent. I will purchase these again if I ever have the need.
Well done General Awnings!
I am pleased to say that the awning I received was easy to install and took no more than an hour to put up. I live in the Colorado mountains and wondered how the awning would hold up to ice and snow falling off the roof above. I am pleased to share with you that the awning has taken many direct hits by falling icicles, some several feet in length and has yet to suffer even a small dent. If the need to purchase any further awnings is in my future I will be sure to once again order from your fine company.
We have had very high winds due to tornado watches and warnings this spring. The awnings have taken hail, torrential rain and wind and look brand new. Needless to say very pleased with the quality and strength of them.
My contractor spoke with one of your representatives who was very helping in answering his questions. I am very satisfied and the "look" of the awning is pleasing and not obtrusive. I recommend it and have no criticisms. It is an excellent value for the price.
I renovate old houses in Midtown Memphis. My last project had 2 old metal awnings over the front door and door to a storage shed. They looked terrible and I had initially thought to throw them away. Then I realized that they were salvageable and I decided to save and paint them in stripes. I then needed another one for the back door, and I got it from Economy window Awning. I haven't bought a metal awning before so I can't compare it, but it was easy to assemble and install, and seems to hold paint well. IMO painting these awnings opens up a whole new market for them. The old ones are, of course, of much more robust construction, but that is the way things are these days.
It was a pleasure working with general awnings. The website was easy, delivery was on time and the installation was a breeze. I have already recommended general awning to all my friends.
