Not the least expensive of the companies we interviewed, but worth the difference. Polite, courteous, well informed. Very pleased with the product and installation. Would recommend to others.

Very professional installation crew. One awning had 2 slats dented and the Foreman didn't want to install the awning until the 2 slats were replaced - We would never have known that. By taking the lead and asking us to wait 1 more week so that the dented ones could be replaced on the actual awning and then installed on our house told us we make the right choice to go with The New Dorchester Awning Company.

We have a large deck and a large family. We had been using two metal frame 10x10 canopies for shade over our two six foot long patio tables and 14 chairs. We had to replace them nearly every year due to wear, tear and fading etc. The frame of the canopies took up room on the deck making it difficult to move out chairs from our tables when we were having dinner on the deck. Our new awning from Dorchester Awning Company is absolutely amazing. It is 20 feet wide by 13 ft 6 inches and nearly covers our entire deck. We have so much more usable room on the deck. No more worries about taking in the canopies during heavy storms/hurricanes. We can retract the awning with a push of a button! We also purchased the wind sensor in the event the awning is out and a rogue wind whips up. The choice of fabrics is too extensive to mention. If you can't find a complimentary color it's because it doesn't exist. We scheduled our initial appointment for an estimate and John, our salesman/installer came out as promised on time. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We were so impressed with the product and the service, we ordered then and there. The awning was delivered and installed within the exact time frame promised. The installers did a wonderful job. Everything was cleaned up as if they had never even been there. Mark Lampson followed up with us by phone to be sure we were happy with the product and installation. About 2-3 weeks after the installation my husband was showing a friend the awning and tried to retract it and the awning would retract a few inches and then go out again. It would not retract. Fortunately they also provide you with a hand crank for the awning in the event of power failure so we were able to retract the awning by hand. It just so happened Mark had called again the following day to check in. I told him about the problem which he suspected was a defect in the motor. Within one week our new motor was installed. Our awning works perfectly now. I would highly recommend Dorchester Awning Company. The product is excellent and the service is exemplary. We have already recommended this company to lots of our friends who have been impressed with our awning!

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.
