We had an easy time with the awning. It took us about 3 and a half hours. Considering that we are both in out 70's, not too bad. The directions were very easy to follow. I read the directions and my spouse and a friend did the actual install. The colors are awesome and match up with the colors of our house and trim.
The reason for our purchase is that our bedroom is on the second floor of our house and faces directly west into the afternoon sun. Over the summer it can get really hot. With the awning the room stayed cooler by several degrees. I would recommend General Awnings to anyone who is thinking about buying.
Looks and fits great. Does have to be assembled which i didn't realize but no big deal. I had planned to take it down for Irma but forgot about it in all the excitement but it held up great.
Found the 3500 Series Window Awning surprisingly easy to assemble and to install. Everything went together just as the easy to follow instructions said it would. Very pleased with everything from ordering on line, receiving all items in a timely fashion and with the final installed product. Will use GeneralAwnings.com again and would recommend them to others.
Our opinion is that we totally love the awning. It took about 1.5 hours to put together and install, mainly because I did have to work on a 8' ladder to install it, thus was doing a lot of up and down on that ladder for measuring and setup, before I drilled any holes.
I think the instructions were more than adequate, but I do recall that there were a couple of areas they could have been much clearer. That said, I do not remember which ones in particular at this time. In any event, the quality is superb, we love the appearance from both inside the room and from the outside.
My name is Karen Dunn and Larry, my husband, bought the awning as a birthday gift for me. I had researched companies online and found that your company was able to build the awning to the right specifications for the window. (it's long)
We had the awning put up by a friend, who thought is went together pretty well. It does take 2 people to get the awning in the bracket.
We're happy with the choice and the purchase.
