I love them; they were outstanding. One thing was just yesterday or the day before, when the wind was going everywhere. I walked out on the back patio, and the shades were down; you can look through them very clearly. My husband and I were just standing there, and you could see the wind blowing the trees going wild, but we couldn't feel even a breeze. It was amazing. All the rain we had coming down had little bitty hail coming down with it, and the only part of the floor of our back patio was about a foot from the shade toward—into the patio there, rain was coming down like crazy, and we couldn't even see through the shades. It was dry as it could be, except for the edge. It was exactly what I wanted. We were at the end of a court, and when the wind blows, the back is toward the north and the front is toward the south. If you get any wind blowing, everybody's trash or anything they have dropped on the ground, comes around and stays in our backyard. Without the shades, it would come up on my porch, and with the shades, it's not on the porch. I love it, and I can't wait until it gets to be spring or summer and to go all through summer with these shades. You can see out beautifully, and when you're outside looking in, you can't see much. I would grade them an A.
We absolutely love them. I only have one complaint that I was going to call them about on Monday. They put shades on my veranda area that are retractable, and they did a great job. They delivered when they said they would. I needed them before the 18th, and they got them in a week earlier. They were very professional. We also had some friends that had some screens put in years ago. They get an A.
They put an awning on our back porch. We face west, so we needed assistance blocking the sun so we could sit on our patio. Their estimate guy was great, their installer guy was great, and their product was great, so I had a very positive experience. In total, it took them three days to do it. They had to have an electrician come out for some of the wiring, so that added a little bit of time, but it was pretty quick. I would give them an A+.
They were great, just really professional, and got the job done in a timely manner. They installed some retractable screens; I'd done business with them in the past. They get an A+
They did a great job. The guys were very good, very personable, and everything was done at the time they said it would be done. They installed three separate screens. A+ would be a good grade; they did everything.
They did a great job; they were installing an exterior power shade. I'd rate them A+.
They put motorized shades on my patio. I liked that they did exactly what they said they would do and on the original schedule—I liked that a lot. The firm that built my house referred me to them. I would grade them an A+
I'd give them an A.
They were prompt and did everything that they promised. They installed a sunshade on my porch. They'd get an A from me.
They put up shades on the patio outdoors. We liked everything. They did A work.
