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.
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.
Good Looking Awning
We have put this awning together. Not too hard to do. We haven't installed it yet on our house because of the weather, but we don't anticipate too much work to do this. The end cap was broke but the supplier has replaced that and did so very quickly. I might add that we are in our 60's and found this easy to do.
12 X 10 awning
My wife and I have had awnings for several years and we do appreciate the shade they give. I like the fact that this awning is lightweight and comparatively inexpensive. It was not difficult to assemble and attach to our home.... took a little patience but it went together just fine. The longevity of the awning will take time to determine but the cost was well worth it.
