I ordered a 20’ Sunesta retractable awning with a 13’ projection to cover my home deck. The metal frame was brown to match the house trim. I had the pros from a local dealer install it, so if anything went wrong, they could fix it. The install looked easy, and they gave me a quick lesson in how everything worked. The articulated arms look funny opening and closing and are noisier (they make a grinding sound) than I thought they would be, as is the motor. I was shown how to adjust the pitch, but I’m not sure I remember, and the instruction manual doesn’t help me. The fabric is supposed to be colorfast and won’t fade. I’m hoping that holds true, especially for what everything cost – expensive!
