My lovely striped awning was installed yesterday morning.
A phone call began the process with a lovely voice stating that his name was Nick and he'd be there in about forty minutes.
He arrived right on time, that's a good sign.
He wasted no time, getting started immediately and the work was done surprisingly quickly.
In no time at all, the awning was up and Nick was showing me how to work it.
Then he filled out the paperwork, I paid him, he handed me the warranty and was gone.
This is my front window with the "eyelash" awning, you can see it does nothing at all to shade the window and the amount of heat that gets in is far too much.
I chose the federation green because the outside walls are a pale green, the terracotta because the lower three courses of bricks and the windowsill, are the same terracotta colour.
The cream stripes are to lighten it up a little. I'm eventually going to paint my front door and the porch railings in federation green also, if I'm allowed to.
Shading the glass, preventing heat transference, and looking pretty.
Rants and Raves but mostly rants
