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!
We purchased the awning because we had just bought a new screen door and interior door and wanted to protect them from the harsh Wisconsin winter snow and ice. We found it quite easy to assemble and we are not all that handy. We put it up, again not a problem and I'm happy with the results. Thank you.
I really like my awnings. I have installed four of them, and they work well. Installation went well, but as would be expected, the first one was harder, and it got progressively easier. The last took about 30 minutes. I plan to get one more for a service door on garage.
Just wanted you to know that our awning arrived ahead of schedule and we have it assembled and hung. my husband is 80 and I'm 77 and we thank you for the money we saved but most of all we are happy that it was made in the U.S.A. Don't know how many more we will need at our age but if we do you folks will get our business.
Very good service. I had to explain a slight design change needed on the support arms and customer service suggested exactly the right option. Everything fit perfectly and the awning is functional for staying out of the rain while opening front door plus gives great curb appeal to an old florida house. Plan on ordering more in the future for the windows. Thank you.
Hey guys, got my awning in record time, took this 82 year old, with help, about 2 hours to get it put together and installed over the door. It rained the next day and it did what I wanted it to do. Thanks again.
