The Series 2500A Door Canopies that I ordered were delivered very quickly and were extremely easy to install. My wife and I installed two identical awnings in about 5 hours total. And they look great. The canopies cover the entire 4' x 4' landing and will be a welcome addition during the winter rains.
I am very happy with my awning purchased from General Awnings. It is a good quality awning for a reasonable price. Their website was very easy to use. I was able to order online and choose the from various sizes and colors to get exactly what I wanted with no confusion or problems. The awning arrived in the time frame I expected and was packaged very well for transit. The instructions were easy to follow and the awning went together surprisingly quickly with my son helping me. It was easy to install it on the house it and works and looks great. We installed it over my sliding door exiting to my deck. My son is a lot taller than I am and the support arms would have been in the way when walking past them and we couldn’t raise the awning any higher. So I mounted the support arms vertical from the deck handrail and it works perfectly. If I find a need for another awning, I will be ordering from General Awnings again and would recommend them to anyone needing an awning.
Thank you for building some great looking, and tough, awnings. We live in Central Florida and have had two recent hurricanes hit our area. We purchased two of your awnings about nine years ago for installation over two doors on our rental office trailer. They have withstood two hurricanes and quite a few severe thunderstorms and one very damaging hail storm. After nine years, they remain a little faded but otherwise in good shape.
We also purchased three awnings for our rental warehouse and installed them about five months ago. They decorate the front of our otherwise dull exterior, and we were pleased how easy it was for my husband and son to install. They have not been "hurricane" tested yet, but we have had a few good storms and they are doing their job! We had new rental tenants before we had completed renovations on our rental warehouse that we have owned for over 40 years.
Installed awning in April 2016. Exactly the product we desired for protection from sun and rain on the west side of home. In early October the awning withstood a class 3 hurricane (Mathew) on the east coastline of Florida, a block from the beach, for 8 hours as the storm passed. No damage at all.
For 18 years, I would get rained on and wet whenever I came to work in bad weather. The water would pour off the roof onto me while fumbling with the door keys. Not any more! I thought General Awnings offered the most of everything in awnings. It even matched the color of our building! We love it and wished we had bought it a lot sooner.
