We had three previous awnings and were getting ready to order a fourth. We looked at all options for a permanent structure. After reviewing all options we decided to go with the natural light cover. We are pleased with our decision. So far no regrets. Doing business with them was a pleasure at all levels. From ordering to installation. If you are looking at a cover, I would suggest you look into this. Our house is an older home and rather dark. The cover lets in a lot of light.
