“Sunair put the awning over the patio on the back of my house. They did an excellent job. It was just what we'd ordered. The installers were both knowledgeable, and the lead was out of this world. It gave me more assurance as to what to do. It was one of the best experiences I've had with a contractor. It was an A+ without a doubt.”
“They installed two awnings on our back porch. The quality of the job was superb. The awnings themselves are very nice, and the installation was nice. The salesman was nice. I'd give them an A+.”
“It was awesome. They were putting an awning on my deck. It was quick, it was easy, and it was personable. I love the awning. I'd say they get an A+.”
“They did an awning, and everything was excellent.”
“I bought an awning last year, and all of a sudden, it didn't work with the remote. I called them on the phone, we discussed the remote, how I might fix it, and it didn't work. They were going to come in the next day. That night I figured out how to fix it and I asked them to cancel the help. So they tried to help me, and it helped me to help myself. That's all. They were very helpful on the phone. The awning is awesome, that's all I can tell you. I'd give them an A+ rating. I have already recommended them.”
“They did a fantastic job. I had a Sunair product installed at my house by someone other than Sunair and they did a bad job. Sunair was able to come out and look at it and say, 'This is wrong, this is what it takes to fix it,' and they got it done. It was great. I give them an A+ across the board. They did a fantastic job. I already have recommended them.”
“It was the quality, I installed it myself, but the quality of the awning is the reason why I purchased it. I'd give them an A+ grade. I'd recommend them highly; I've already done it multiple times.”
“They installed an awning. They were very professional. It was excellent work, no complaints at all I'd purchase from them again.”
“They were putting an awning up outside. It's fine. It was excellent with no complaints across the board.”
“They did an awning in the back. The whole job went smooth. They knew what they were doing. No problems at all. I'd give them an A+. I'd recommend them.”
“They were putting an awning over the top of a deck overlooking our backyard. There's nothing particular, it was kind of the whole package we were happy with. It was A+ work.”
“They were putting in an awning on our deck. I liked that it was a local company. I grade them with an A+.”
“They were putting an awning over the rear deck. I dealt with them before and was very comfortable with them. They're A+”
“It was for my mother. She has a front deck and the awning was covering that. They got it done in the proper time they said they were going to. I'd give them an A+.”
“It was 100 percent a positive experience. We got an awning maybe five or six years ago, and then we needed a second one. They put another one up for us last year, actually beside the other one over our deck. They were very cooperative and knowledgeable. There was some issue in the way the estimator had it designed to go beside the other awning, so when the installer came out he could see that it wasn't going to work properly. He made a small adjustment that made all the difference in the world. So for that, we were very happy, because it could have been installed as directed and it would have made us unhappy. I'd give them an A+ certainly. We've recommended them for a number of years actually, since the first one was installed.”
“They did awnings. They were very quick and clean. They didn't leave a lot of debris around and all that. They got it done right away, and the product was displayed as expected. I'd give them an A. I have recommended them. I've recommended them to friends and stuff already.”
“They installed my awning. The quality of the product stood out.”
“It was good. They put an awning up to cover the deckhouse. It lowered during the summer months, temperature must have dropped twenty degrees under that awning during the summer months. We could sit outside on the deck, drink a cup of coffee, and everything's fine. I'd say it was at least an A. It was all going well. I would definitely recommend it to someone.”
“That was last year. They put the awning on the rear of our home. It keeps the upstairs a lot cooler, and the downstairs. We had downstairs and upstairs. I'd give them an A rating.”
“I had an awning installed. I liked that they were good and honest. That's what I liked about them when they came in. When they came here, they did the work, which was very nice. I appreciated that they explained everything to me, and it's as simple as that. I'd give them an A.”
“I have a real problem answering questions with a company that I'm not familiar with and for something that was done so long ago.”
“They were putting up some external blinds on my house. They got the job done, and they did it in kind of a timely manner. They did it professionally, so all that was good. I'd give them an A-.”
“They put an awning up. Everything was great. I'd give them an A.”
“They were installing an awning. I liked the quality of the product. I'd give it an A.”
“They did a retractable awning. They were prepared, they came, and they did their job. They were fine. I'd grade them an A.”
“Sunair Awnings installed an awning on a portion of my deck for me a while back. I liked that the sales guy was just really honest about the product, and when they came to install it, it was done fairly quickly. They explained well how to close it, open it, clean it, and care for it. I just love the look of it, and I like that I had so many choices in the fabric. I really was very happy. I had about four different quotes from other companies, but their office is close to my house. I'd rate them as an A.”
“The salesperson was spectacular. The workers were attentive, careful, prompt, and clean. They put in an awning over the outside deck. They'd get an A.”
“Sunair Awnings did my retractable awning. Curtis Weaver, the salesman, is a great guy. He explained everything to us, and I'm really satisfied. They installed it in May, and we've really enjoyed it. Curtis came out to the house and talked about the financing, which met our budget. He ordered everything for us, we got an installation date, they came on time, and they put it in. I'd give them an A+.”
“Sunair did awning work for me a while back. They were fine—I didn't have any problems with them. They put a retractable awning over top of my deck outside. It was actually a Christmas present from my parents. They chose the company for that, but we've had other awnings done by them. I'll give them an A.”
“There were positive results for everything. I'd rate Sunair Awnings as an A.”
“Sunair was fine. We had no problems at all. They showed up on time, got the job done quickly, and cleaned up. Everything works. They put up an awning for me. We would give them an A because they did very well.”
“Sunair Awnings did our canopy, and I thought that everything was right. We like the awning, we're happy with the way it was installed, and we're very much satisfied with it all. They installed the awning on our patio on the back of the house. My wife and daughter were the ones who were instrumental in choosing them. They were referred to them. They get an A.”

“They installed a custom retractable awning for us. Once we were able to get to the right person, Tony, he was able to explain the options. He was very courteous. There were some issues on the install, but they came back later on and fixed it.”
“Sunair Awnings was precise and explained everything they were going to do before they did it. They completed the job in a timely manner. They installed an awning for us over our deck, and they replaced one of the old ones we had to give us a newer version. They earned an A.”
“My experience with Sunair Awnings & Solar Screens was absolutely fantastic. They were very quick to respond after we made initial contact, and they made our decision-making process so quick and easy. It was almost as if they'd climbed inside our heads and knew what we were looking for before they even showed up. They installed a sun-blocking shade on our porch, and we've been enjoying it daily ever since they put it up—A+.”
“They installed an awning on my back patio. They were very professional and really polite. They showed me how to work it and helped me adjust it. I'd give them an A. The awning is beautiful—I love it.”
“Sunair Awnings & Solar Screens was great. They put in an awning for our courtyard this time. Everything they do is fantastic—they're an A-worthy company.”
“I had a positive experience with Sunair Awnings & Solar Screens—they're an A.”
“They put an awning on the exterior of my home. The finance lady was very professional and down to earth. I really had a good experience with the company. I compared them to another place, and I decided to go with them based on their locality and the customer service. I would grade them as an A+—absolutely.”
“They installed a 14-foot awning on my back deck on the side of the house. The product works great—just like they advertised. The sale was correct, and the installation was painless. It worked great. I went with Sunair because they had the product that in the size that I needed. I'd give them an A+ rating.”
“Everything was fine with Sunair Awnings & Solar Screens.”
“I got an awning from Sunair. They were prompt and on time, and they installed it nicely. Their customer service was good. It was an A job.”

“I would say Sunair Awnings & Solar Screens deserves an A grade.”
“Sunair put an awning up. I liked that they're a locally based company—that was the main selling point. The companies I wanted to deal with were out of state, and I didn't feel comfortable having to wait for something to come from out of state if something went wrong. Sunair was very professional and on time, and they made it worth my while. They definitely get an A.”
“They supplied me with an awning. The work was very good, and the product they delivered was exactly what I ordered. When I picked the awning up, they weren't supposed to be open on Saturdays, but they made things happen for me even though they weren't open. It was a good experience. I'd give them an A because I don't have any complaints. It's working great.”
