Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suz82 Nice Alternative to Full Size Patio Awning
Our decades-old 10-foot aluminum patio awning collapsed in last year's heavy winter snow. Chose this canopy kit as a low-profile replacement: Pleasing color; modern shape; covers and protects sliding glass door against the elements. We bought the 7-foot kit to cover a 5-foot slider. Perfectly centered and good looking. Pretty fair price. Only reason for less than five stars is our local HD has no installation service for this kit. We are not up to the task and It took us weeks to find a handyman who would agree to do the job. Still took him and a partner two hours due to complex instructions. Manufacturer included very inferior screws which had to be replaced with longer, stronger screws.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack 6 ft. 2100 Series Aluminum Door Canopy (18 in. H x 48 in. D) in White
This canopy was very easy to put together via the instructions. The installation was easy, but you will need an extra hand to lift canopy up above the door. Highly recommend this item!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe 4ft. Door Canopy, White.
It took me 3 hours to put it together, I would have like it Better If it was ALL done for me, and it came Assembled. The Instruction were a bit comfusing, and Each step had a lot of things to do, instead is Easy 123 steps.
Then I had to build a Platform so I could put my ladder over the 3 front steps.
I Installed it alone and it ALL took me an another 3 hours, Total.
I also used the extra screws to re-inforced the bottom brackets.
It had helped keep the wind/ rain from hitting the front door, and leaking into the house, door with bottom door rubber threshold.

Canopy was easy to assemble and easy to install.
My canopy is 6 ft wide so I had a friend give me a hand.
I would recommend it to be a 2 person install.
It looks great !!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dee Very nice. Serves purpose.
I needed this primarily for shade. My back storm door gets baked by the sun until it's hot to the touch. I installed this alone in under 2 hours, but help installing it onto the house won't hurt, but not absolutely necessary. Make sure the entire awning is secure in the channel attached to the house! Also, in applications with vinyl siding, the side attachments may need some type of shim under the siding to keep the siding from buckling in. I drilled a 3/4 inch hole and used a 3/4 inch nut 1/2 thick as a shim and a bigger washer covers the hole and nut. All of this is under the side awning attachment point, only a bit of washer is seen just caulk the edges. Now the vinyl siding is not crushed and buckled when you tighten the screw. This only applies to the two side attachment points. The top bracket won't have this issue because it is mounted on the flatest part of the siding directly under a ridge.
