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.

the awning scratches EASY, especially when you have to put it all together. be careful and lay it on cardboard and a tarp. please include touch up paint.

The burgundy looks good. Installation was not bad. Although some screws need to self thread into sheet metal which took some effort. I assembled it in the house, and needed a second person to help hang it in place.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ENM81 This awning was perfect to replace the 30+ year old similar one that was damaged by the heavy snow we had in New England this year. The material is not sturdy until it is all screwed together and then it feels ROCK SOLID!!! (some assembly required) Make sure you have a helper with this project as it cannot be tackled alone. The instructions were clear and easy for a layman to read. This item was purchased online without being able to touch or see it in the store, and the picture online was a good representation of the product! I Plan on buying another 2 within 6 months for a rental property.
