The good part of this awning is that it looks OK and is reasonably easy to install for someone that is at a minimum handy. I am a handyman. The only problems are that it does not stand up to the wind at all (very thin arms and frame), so I am constantly rolling it in. Another problem is that pockets of rainwater even with enough pitch or angle on the arms are causing issues with the fabric and now the hardware. I actually received the wrong size but doing a return was such a hassle I just decided to keep the one I got. All in all, my wife and I like how it works, even if it is not exactly what I hoped for or expected.
