They've had some good products, and we like everything associated with them. We've never had any trouble, so we have no recourse as to how they would respond if we did, but their product is wonderful. We enjoy it. We chose them because they had the best product.
They gave an incredibly detailed quote, like what they were going to do before they got there, and followed through with that, so that was good. We have a condo building, my neighbor and I are both duplex-ups, and they put an awning over our decks. Other than the quote and the installation, I'm not sure we had to call them back. My neighbor found them, so I'm not sure how he found them. I would give them an A.
They were actually very nice. He's come out a couple times to make adjustments after the fact to tighten the awning material, and he's been really nice about it, so we've been really pleased with them. We bought a house that we inherited an awning with fabric that was damaged, so we replaced the fabric with him, but he said it's kind of normal to need the fabric to be tightened after it settles a little bit. He's come out two or three times to make adjustments for us without any extra charges incurred, so I've been really pleased with working with him, and the fabric looks awesome. I would give them an A. It's been really, really good.
They get an A for amazing.
They're very good. It's very convenient, and I like the way it works when it's snowy out or rainy out. It gives you a little bit of coverage. It's very good. They put in a retractable awning. His attitude is very good. He did a good job. We had the awning before. We had bought the house with the awning, and when we did, we had to have a piece of it repaired, the apron on it, the skirt. So when he did that, he came and turned the thing around so it rolled the other way, put the skirt on, and we had to buy a new motor. It came with the house—A for excellent.
Everything was perfect.
I like the product and the good service. They put in a big cabana tent. We left it out in the snow, it broke, we called them, and they had it repaired right away—very good. They had the best product. They were an A.
Everything was fine.
It was very good. I've had it for so long; it's been like ten years with my awning. I just called the company, they gave me a telephone number of one of the boys, I just had them, and they came right out and fixed it. It didn't go down good, but now everything is working good.
I like that it's done. They did an awning.
