We had sliding doors to the west and every afternoon the sun was unbearable. Added two made one right and one left. Works great
Attachment points gotcha
They recommend in the instructions to only attach this to a full masonry wall. I don't have that.(all wood) So I used metal plates with mounting bolts welded on, and then multiple lag bolts to modify this. The hardware they provide is for masonry wall only, so be aware and have a plan. Also, the awning drops about 2 feet from attachment point once it is fully extended, so make sure you take that into account when planning. They recommend mounting it 10 feet high on the wall.
NOT AS THE PICTURE
iT IS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED, I GET 2 OF THEM AND THE SAME PROBLEM BECAUSE HANGS FOR ONE SIDE AND THE WATER STAYS DO NOT RUN, IT IS TO BIG WITH NOT ENOUGH BASE FIRM.
Arrived before time, instructions were very clear, quite easy to assemble. Side caps (flimsy plastic item) were broken during transit but it is not a critical item. If they had mentioned on the website that this item is meant to be installed only on a concrete or brick wall, I might not have purchased it. But once it was here I had to be innovative to install it on a wooden wall (I needed the shade desperately). I am not a pro, but managed to install it (almost) single handedly. It has been only three days and it seems to be holding on well. I am quite pleased with its quality.
Definitely well worth the money. Once up, it has worked very well. The instructions do however suck in a big way. (Be prepared to use your imagination when assembling) A few holes were pre-drilled on the complete wrong side.
