Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIY03038 Good Quality Awning Made to Last
I purchased this awning for an outside entry door to provide a sheltered area for the entry door from the elements.
This is a good quality awning that uses materials designed to withstand being outdoors for years. The awning canopy and its support frame pieces are all aluminum construction and mount together securely.
Stainless steel hardware is used to hold the awning assembly together.
All mounting hardware for the awning is included except for caulking that needs to be applied between the mounting bar and the outside surface of a home that the mounting bar attaches to support the awning to prevent water from running down between the awning and where it attaches to a home.
I chose the light almond color to match the color of my home and the color is a very close match and the awning overall looks great and functions well. I did not choose the model with side wings because I did not want to risk providing a wind sheltered area under the canopy that may invite wasps or other insects to build nests.
The assembly instructions require a minimum skill level especially for a first time assembling and installing an awning.
The canopy assembly would be less confusing if the manufacturer placed a small "this side up" label at the center of each canopy section that would not need to be removed if it were hidden by the center rafter.
The installation instructions were good except that the top trim piece did not have holes in it to receive the 3 sheet metal screws that correspond with the holes in the bottom of the mounting bar to secure the awning to the mounting bar. Ended up drilling one pilot hole at a time into the top trim piece followed by installing a sheet metal screw after each hole was drilled using the clearance holes in the mounting bar as a template during step 2C of the installation instructions.

Good product for the money. Not really easy installation. Were missing plastic anchors for installation over cinder blocks. Just screws !

I purchase this awning the price was right and the quality plus everyone in the comment gave it good ratings. I received it and there were many parts and the instructions were not very straight forward. I would have to cut pieces. This is great for someone with more or less construction or a house builder. If you purchase this before and did it yourself that's great. I did returned it to the store. But I still sure that the quality and price was great. I still recommend to those who are willing to take a challenge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer pretty good
took a little time to assemblebut not difficult.when installing the support rods to the wall mount brackets
i would recomend drilling a hole through the bracket and rod.install a nut and bolt through it,the set screws they supply wont hold in a wind.
other than that its a pretty nice product

The overall appearance is good but the fit of the outside bars are hard to work with. How ever when completed it looks just fine.
The support bars should be 4 inches longer in order to work better for adjustment from building.
