Our recently installed awning both compliments & completes our new siding and newly constructed deck. The sale was informative and low key, the price competitive and the installation timely & professionally done. Moreover, a small problem that developed was quickly & courteously resolved.

The shade value provided by the awning makes our deck more comfortable and enhances our outdoor enjoyment.

In short we would recommend the awning and, especially, Friends of the Sun to anyone.
