i was planning to host a party for some friends. i wanted to keep them out of the heat so i decided to get an awning for the patio area. i went with this company based on a recommendation from a friend. they helped me pick out the one that best suited my budget and home. they also provided me with free accessories like patio lights and an awning cleaning kit. the installation took half a day and they knew what they were doing. this is a great company with quality products but beware, they can be extremely pricey especially when it comes to patio furniture. if you want less expensive stuff go to a big retailer.
