Review by in Manchester, CT
We purchased the original awning from them and when the time came to replace the canvas we called them again, as stated by others, it was pricey but we had it done, after a few months we started getting birds nesting under the awning and after trying all types of fixes we called them to come out and see if there was anything they could do to lessen the problem. They said there was a service charge of $87.50, which I thought was high but agreed too. Two workers that were already in Manchester came about 2 hours later and looked at the awning and said there was nothing that could be done since everything was working properly. They suggested I have the Fringe replaced with a longer one so that it could be looped under the awning and seal it off from the birds. That seemed to be a good idea so I asked them to contact their supervisor and ask what it would cost. I didn't hear back from the company for a few days and called them and spoke to Bob and he said he didn't think it would work, but would stop by and take a look once the snow we had that day melted. I waited another week and called again since it was a beautiful warm day. I set up an appointment for the following Wednesday. Wednesday came and went with no one showing up and no call as to why. On Thursday I called again and was told Bob had the Flu and would stop out the following Monday or Tuesday. Monday and Tuesday both came with no one showing up again and this time I waited until FRIDAY to call and see what was going on. The girl at the desk said he probably forgot so I asked her to have him call me back. I never heard from him at all but a BILL FOR $ 93 + came in today a MONTH after the original visit and there was never anything done to begin with, other then the 2 guys that were already in Manchester stopping in to look at it. In my opinion, their Customer Service and front desk leave a lot to be desired if it's not a BIG $$ project you need done. I will not use this company again and if asked I will tell them about the lack of communication. I will pay the bill even though there was really nothing done to justify it.

Although it was a pricey project, we are very happy with the outcome. The owners of the company, Bob and Doris, are very professional as are their employees. The men who did the installation were polite and efficient. After the first rain on the awning, we were concerned because the seems seemed to leak but I was assured that that would be rectified after one or two rains allowing the thread to expand. I was told that the problem would be taken care of if that was not the case. What a difference the awning makes in regards to our being able to use our deck on the south side of the house. It also defines the space and give us an additional living space during the summer season. Because it comes off our sun porch, it serves to keep that cooler also. We are very happy with the results.

We have ordered an awning to be installed in the spring. We found the company to be very professional. We decided to purchase even though the cost of the new awning is quite pricey. It is difficult to rate the quality until installed.

Within two hours of my request, Bob was out here measuring. Once awnings were made, installation took about two hours. They also hung up an awning I already owned for me in about an hour. All in all great service. Installers were very professional. Definitely will do business with them again.

The awning place first sent an estimator and the work was completed about two weeks later. The cost was at the low end of the estimate.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
