After shopping the big box stores for a new awning, we realized that we would have to go on line to find something that fit our specific needs. Locally, there was a very limited number of sizes and colors to choose from. General Awnings not only offered many size and color combinations, but their prices were the best we saw. Throw in the free shipping and it was a no-brainer.
Our awning came before the expected arrival date and it was undamaged, had easy-to-understand instructions and went up in less than an hour. We couldn't be happier with General Awnings, it's products and service.
We have had the awnings for almost a year now and we are very pleased. They were easy to install. They were delivered to us in less time than we expected. Thank you for a good product. They have held up during heavy snow, wind and torrents of rain with not a bit of damage. I would recommend these to anyone. Thank you.
My husband and I are both senior citizens, so we do have difficulty doing some things. But the awning was very easy to put up. We had no difficulty with it at all, and it stopped the rain from coming in around the door. We are very satisfied with our purchase of the awning. Thanks again.

The awning is great, but it is a little thinner than I expected. I should have used an assistant in attaching it to the house, but other than that it was very easy to install, perhaps an hour in total. When I heard what my neighbor paid for hers, more than ten times more, I was thrilled I had found your product on line. I would highly recommend this product to any home owner or do it yourselfer. It has already kept me from getting wet getting in and out of the car about ten times already so I figure it has paid for itself.
The awning is working just fine. Its real job is to keep rain off the door and reduce the amount that collects around the floor area. It is doing that just fine. It has withstood several windy storms. I assembled the awning myself, so it is not really a tough job. Although I recommend two people to actually hang the awning in place. It solved my problem at a reasonable expense.
The awnings were best described as "Perfect". They were exactly what I wanted and the installation and assembly was "Simple". I will definitely recommend them ( already have to a couple of business) to my Family, Friends, and Associates. I would not recommend them to anyone if they were not of good quality.
The awnings really make a difference where I have them installed over outside doors. I can now stand outside my doors when it is raining and you can fold up or open an umbrella outside without getting wet.
OK, finally nice weather. I modified your 42 x 36 awning into two awnings of 42x18"-- I just wanted something to shield the window from normal rain and allow the window to be open during gentle rainstorms in the summer and don't want to worry about a surprise shower damaging the wood interior wood frames. From the side, these have a very minimal look to them which is what I was going for.
This canopy looks awesome & completes the look of the house without overpowering. Simple, sleek and appears durable. The only issue we had with installation was one or two screw holes not being in alignment. We don't believe this is going to become an issue. I plan to order one for the back door soon. We wish to replace that door before installing the awning. Thank you for making this affordable, shipping before expectations and not adding shipment! Very positive experience.

I bought two (2) of these awnings in subsequent months and was pleased by the clarity of the simple instructions. The basic structure is light and strong. To fit your particular circumstances, you may have to drill some extra holes, but the product is light and flexible enough to do that. The awnings came intact and on time. Thanks for a decent product.
The quality of the awning was not as good as I expected it to be. I am concerned that it will blow down at the next windy storm.
