I purchased the awnings primarily for "looks" for my older style mobile home, but they have proved to be very beneficial in providing needed shade in the early afternoon hours in my living room area. The installation was easy and took minimal time, Assembly was pretty "straight forward" with easy to follow instructions provided. After doing my own paint scheme to blend with my coach, I am very happy with the results, and have had numerous compliments on my new awning additions. Being "light weight" they seem (by my standards) to be very durable, and strong for what my needs are. Well pleased with my purchase.
We were able to use this economy awning over a side door into our garage to prevent rain water and overflow from the roof gutter that used to run into our garage. It has worked very well in that capacity and we are pleased that it solved the problem. The appearance is appropriate (all white) with the trim colors of our house. It took 2 people to install over several hours, (my husband and I) but once completed, we were still married and happy with the choice. It is the only awning on our house, but it is on the garage side that has no other windows other than the side door, so no conflict of design or obstruction of view and most of all, no soaking rain water at the door. We did caulk between the awning and the house siding to stop water from dripping onto the steps, but the awning deflects the water very well.

I purchased two of your 49" Economy awnings for our basement doors to protect them from Sun and weather. I shopped around and found General Awnings had the best prices. I chose Economy awnings because of their maintenance-free aluminum construction. My awnings were shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. They do require assembly, but the step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. It took about an hour to assemble and install each awning, working alone, and they turned out great. They look nice and are very sturdy.

I am very happy with the product. It was inexpensive and relatively easy to install. I needed something to protect my exposed door from rain and this awning has fit the bill so far. The instructions could have been a little clearer but I was able to lay the awning out on the floor ahead of time according to the instructions which made the install easier. I was pleasantly surprised that the awning withstood strong gusts of wind from a recent hurricane. I would definitely recommend this product to family and friends.

Very happy with the awning. We used the instructions from the website that had great photos and instructions not the instructions that were sent with the awning. The instructions that came with it were not easy to follow. It took us,two women, about 3hrs to install the awning over a door on a rental property we own. It looks great and already shades the entrance. Tenants are happy and it didn't cost us much!
