The canopy in Greystone is MUCH lighter in color than it appears online. Disappointing! Had the neighborhood 'handyman' install it, and he had much difficulty assembling it. Have yet to see how it handles rain/snow so until then will have to accept it for what it is. Would have been better had it been available in 1/2 foot increments.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RDinTN Sturdy & beautiful in an Americana sort of way.
Easily installed with two people. It's light enough but unwieldy. I didn't have clearance under the eaves to position the hanging bar the called distance above the door ( the issue is your door, when open, hitting the underside of the canopy). I positioned that bar 8-9" above the door and gained open-door clearance room by placing a 1/4" spacer washer under the bottom mount point of each canopy side panel. A tip: I dropped the tailgate and did the initial assembly on an old blanket in the bed of my pickup - lot easier on the back. Pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lindalou What we were hoping for
We've been unable to decide what to do with our back entry (double sliding door). We still aren't firm but we knew we needed something to cut down on the water and dirt splashing up from the pad. When my husband learned there was more to the installation that just "putting it up" he became weary as other joint installation projects can turn a little ugly (I'm analytical, he just "goes with it"). We purchased the larger awning and aside from a few small issues it was amazingly easy to install. It looks wonderful and I can't wait for the first rain to test it out.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Safeman Looks Great, Very Sturdy
Bought this to keep the sun and rain off a West door.
Instructions are a little hard to follow, could be better.
Actual assembly was easy. A single mounting bar attaches to the house and is easy to level and align.
Be sure to caulk the top of the mounting bar.
Once the bar is on the house you just lift the awning up and hang it on the bar and screw everything together. One man operation.
Delivery to store was quick and easy.
The unit seems flimsy until it is completely installed, then it is very sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pilot98 Overall, high quality and good appearance
Bought it so I could "hear the rain" but it really adds to appearance of upstairs balcony with French doors. Bought the largest available so wife and I can sit under it with our coffee while it rains. Will also help protect the wood doors from sun and rain. Thought it was a little pricy and more difficult to install than I expected but nothing too bad. Two people would have been easier but only had myself. I considered one without sides but glad I paid the extra. Sides make it much more durable and better looking.
