First let me say that I have never before installed a metal multi-piece awning, so the multiplicity of parts and minimal, and often vague instructions and photos made the installation process difficult initially. I worked with a neighbor to attach the frame to my house and together we worked through a bit of trial and error to get started on the assembly process. After a couple hours, we were able to start attaching the actual awning parts. Once we got the hang of installing a few sections, the instructions started to make sense and we assembled parts section by section. In time the process went fairly smoothly to completion.
The awning has been installed for nearly 3 months on our house and works perfectly at deflecting rain off the plant window over which it was installed. This was our intent and hope. It does the job perfectly without blocking much light that is desirable for plants in the window below. The awning is a classic design that my wife and I are very satisfied with and we are delighted that this model was available through General Awnings.com. Thanks for making such a nice variety of products available for customers. Our local stores/outlets did not offer much selection at all. Your company really fills the void for families and buyers looking for a broad selection of awning styles and fair pricing. Thank you for your quality service...... but please do consider a video option to assure customers do install awnings properly for structural safety, beauty and longevity.
I found that the quality of your product was, what I use on determining material quality, was an 8 out of 10, installation ease was also an 8 out of 10. The only challenge that I encountered was that next time I would assemble the awnings on the job site instead of assembling them at my construction shop and then taking them to the job site and making sure the day of assembling them is not a windy day. Otherwise the product overall is good.
General Awning made my awning install quick and easy. Their website allowed me to choose quickly what I wanted and my awning came well packaged along with excellent instructions. It only took a couple of hours to hang and looked great for the spot it covers. The sturdy construction with it's snap and screw-in parts made it simple. I would highly recommend General Awning for your next awning project.
Thank you for having the AC1000 awnings available. These are the original awnings that my parents had in their 1948 house. The awnings were taken down 10 years ago and the replacement ones never looked right. The house had been totally redone and the only issue was the awnings. My nephew put up the new retro AC1000 and the house looks great. Thank you for doing custom special orders.
We LOVE the awning! It was easy to assemble and hang. Really like the color choices that were available. The sketch that was online along with the picture was helpful for measuring the correct size and what it would look like once installed. There are not many companies that make the type of awning we wanted so I was really glad I found you online. Very happy with the purchase!
