4-ft. Window Awning
I first reviewed this July, 2011. I am re-writing that review. The color has maintained however, nothing else has. It came apart with the first breeze (not wind - breeze), flaps against the house, does not roll up into a tidy bundle so there is always material hanging in the window and it never looks 'neat'. I am getting a more rigid mount from another company.

Not made to last
I'll have to agree that it does not look as good in real life as it does in the photos. That said, we have had two of these awnings up for 2 1/2 years and they already are tearing and look weathered. They are not particularly secure in even a moderate wind and are noisy in the wind. A big disappointment given how much they cost.

I would recommend
I like this product so much I have bought it twice in fourteen years. Easy to install, and sturdy. My door faces south and this awning provides excellent protection from sun, rain, snow and did not come down or twist in a 40 MPH wind. I live in New England and it has survived a few 32 inch snowfalls as well. I lift the underside with a broom handle and poof the snow slides right off, no problem. Being southern exposure, green will eventually fade, and after many years the material ripped from weakening of constant exposure to the sun. Two years now, and the second green awning looks good as new.

Better photo than in person
We put this awning over the door on the side our out house. We put 2 beautiful bushes in stunning pots on each side of the door. A very lovely touch to our home. HOWEVER, this awning does not look as taught and tailored as the photo. There is some slack because the fabric is not not as tight as it should be. It serves the purpose but after putting it up, it would take too much time & effort to remove it and return it. I'm a little disappointed.

Not very good
The canvas was too small for the frame. I don't know if this was a mistake in packaging or what. I had been wanting an awning and this was a good price. My husband cut down the frame so it would fit properly so I couldn't send it back. He said if he had it all to do over he would send it back. So beware if you plan on just installing it, you may have problems.

Keeps your rooms cooler!
This is the second set of awnings I have purchased from solutions. I have already recommended this product to friends living here on the island.

Purchased for a west facing window with no shade. This awning is perfect shade. Some handyman work for installation but not bad.

We just put this up and although it took a bit over the 30 minutes, it was not difficult. We are pleased with the color. Wish it were a neater, tighter fit and my husband says it doesn't appear to be very sturdy. We are in an area with high winds so that will be the test! I hope it doesn't fade.
