“I wanted to thank you for the great job you did with our awning. We were initially worried that it could not be done in the space we wanted it. However, with your experience and professionalism you were quickly able to come up with a plan!You also explained all of our options, provided guidance on fabric selections,motors and everything else that went with it. The team that installed it with you were nice to work with and very capable as well. Stephen and I are very pleased and will recommend you highly!! Thank you again.”

“Where would I be without those awnings? Roasting in a very hot house! They’ve been in for at least ten years and work just beautifully. I’m particularly fond of the three big awnings on the bank of nine windows overlooking Squam Lake to the southwest. Each covers three large windows and they work together. Being electrified, it only takes pushing one button to lower them all. Best of all, if a stiff breeze comes along they are not in danger…. they automatically retract!”
