"Excellent follow-ups. Came to me at my convenience. Worked with me to address my needs and budget. They were able to install the final product much sooner than I" thought and it took them less time than expected. The final product looks great. They Very straight forward, "old school" type of company. And because they are an awning manufacturer, they have full control over their end of the process. and were great to work with. Highly recommend them!

-Matthew S.

"Everything with them was great. Their response time as far as calling me back was great. The salesman who came to visit was attentive and courteous. I was entertaining" several offers and he came when I had another salesman here. He didn't in but waited patiently until I was done with the other salesman. I really appreciated that. The response time as far as getting back to me after I chose them to do the work and everything else was just good. They exceeded their time, as far as completion of the work. They said they'd be done in four to six weeks and they were done in two and a half or three weeks. The price was fair. Everything was just great.

a house with several awnings

Deck and Patio Awnings

They seem old-fashioned, but awnings are still a viable solution for windows, entranceways and even patios where shelter from direct sun and rain is needed. Retractable awnings are ideal when the need for such shelter is variable.

A homeowner gets double the protection from the sun with a patio cover topped with matching roof shingles, and a pergola. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Mitch W. of Pflugerville, Texas)

If you don't get enough shade cover over your balcony, patio or yard to venture outside on warm days, these tips can help you beat the summer heat.

retractable awning
Decks & Porches, Awnings

If you're thinking about buying a retractable awning, consider the value, longevity and cost.

retractable awning covers poolside patio area with lounging chairs in the backyard of a house.

Retractable awnings require little maintenance after installation.

To my Knowledge , Clothe Awnings are NO LONGER Being made .

I have Not Seen a manufacturer in ages nor an advertiser for such products.

I might suggest that You contact an Upholstery Company to see if they do such ............


Perhaps another ready of this Forum can provide a better answer !

Awning Installation reviews in Chicago


An open letter about my saga On April 22 I called Company to come measure for installation for a new awning to replace my old which had been taken down last fall due to a broken extension mechanism. The receptionist was very nice (and continued to be throughout the whole ordeal) ...More and said she would have the salesman call me to set up an appointment. A bit of background- the retractable canvas awning we were replacing after ten years had been made by Chesterfield and we have two other awnings that were fabricated by them. I didn’t even think about calling anyone else because we had been so happy over the years with our prior purchases and even recommended them to neighbors who, like us, have south facing decks with outrageous heat and sun in the summer. We literally couldn’t use our deck in the daytime without our awning. The salesman Ed Ritzema called and set up an appointment on April 24th- as I asked him to get here as soon as possible because of the deck not being useable until we had the new awning installed. He showed up on the 24th carting sample books and I was ready to go- I picked out a style and then (this is the “had I but known” part of the story) he balked at taking my deposit saying that this awning came only in restricted fabrics and he would have to check with his “production guys” to make sure he had the right fabric choices for me and therefore the right pricing. He told me he would get back to me early the next week and set up something for me to pick from the appropriate fabric choices. I told him I knew that things took time for production so I wanted to order this before I left for a vacation out of the country. The next week came and I didn’t hear from him on Monday or Tuesday and given the time frame I was working with I was concerned so I called and got what I would term the bum’s rush until I got a bit huffy him reminding him that he had told me HE WOULD CALL ME. By this point we were already in the second week of the “ordering process” (as it became). He said he still hadn’t had a to get with “the guys” because he was sooo busy (and oh by the way had taken a few days off) I had his cell phone so I started texting him and he finally committed to coming again with the fabrics and to “LET ME ORDER” a new awning. He came the second time for the “fitting” and a 4550 deposit on my order on May 6th – he assured me I didn’t need to be all worried about the production time because this particular awning wasn’t made in house and the place they ordered them from was “really fast turnaround” a week or so from when the order was placed. So I left the country thinking my order was placed on 5/6/14 upon my one half deposit of 4550 and I would have merely to set up an installation appointment when I returned- I was SOOOOOO WRONG! When I returned on 5/27, I called immediately to 1.cnfirm my awning had been ordered and 2. Set up an installation date…. And I mean immediately – the afternoon I got off my flight from France I was on the phone- (remember the south facing deck is completely day time unusable without shade) And - OLE Ed Ritzema tells me – no it hasn’t been ordered (NOW THREE WEEKS after my deposit and my understanding that I had ordered an awning) THREE WEEKS (delayed THREE WEEKS ALREADY) so needless to say I was angry. Ole Ed Ritzema tells me he needs to do some more measuring- --seriously? Why hadn’t he called to for more measuring in the nine days in between the 6th of May when he took my 4550 and the 15th of May when I left the country for ten days (somehow he might have been able to squeeze in the additional measuring in those nine days – but NO he waited until I CALLED HIM (again) and told me it hadn’t been ordered…. I again expressed my concern about the timing and was again assured that “these folks are quick” – So ON May 28th he comes again with two other guys (both very nice) but really – we are now at appointment THREE –one month and four days after the first appointment - and they still have yet to order an awning – and if you have been keeping track we are now only one day short of FIVE WEEKS since the day I wanted to order and awning and pay for it on 4/24! Can you see steam coming from my ears? He assures me again that this will be ordered by the end of the week and shouldn’t take much more than a week for the company who makes them to get it to Chesterfield and therefore he would still be in his 6 weeks (quoted on the 5/6 order form – IN WRITING) If you have a calendar in front of you – then you know the end of the week is actually 5/30. Six weeks from the 6th of May (a Tuesday) is June 17th (June 18th begins week seven) So because my trust level in Ole Ed Ritzema has plummeted to single digit numbers, I text him on Monday June 2nd to inquire if the order had been placed like he said it would be LAST WEEK…..I hear nothing from him until a VM message of 6/4 where he tells me the order was placed the day before! By now you won’t be surprised to hear that it hadn’t been placed as Ole Ed Ritzema had promised – I reminded him that despite his last assertion that he would meet the six weeks from 5/6 (which he claimed was the week of the 23rd but I pointed out to him was actually June 17th ) it wasn’t looking too promising since we still at June 2nd didn’t have a verified order despite having my 4550 from 5/6/14 onward and my repeated calls attempting to light a fire under Ole Ed Ritzema… I called the shop when he stopped answering my texts (and yes I was getting testy about the whole thing) because I knew in April there was production time and that is why I wanted to order it on the FIRST APPOINTMENT for measuring on APRIL 24TH!!!!! The long suffering receptionist (poor thing has other Ole Ed clients to deal with I am sure) listened carefully to my concerns and put me through to the installation manager- who was also very nice and on June 13th he called me and we set up an installation date of June 25th 12 days later- So on the morning on June 24th I called to verify the time and to find out just what I would need to do to prepare for the installation – and I spoke with the lovely receptionist who told me she would track down and he would get back to me- I have to admit I finally TOTALLY LOST IT when he said it would be another week (well actually he didn’t really say that he said he would make an appointment for 1 but he didn’t say it would actually be completed 1) I was in tears – I have a large outdoor party planned for 4PM for the 4th of and I had repeatedly told Ole Ed Ritzema that I absolutely needed the awning before that to which he kept telling me – this company we get these from works fast they ship them to us in just days- And here is what I have to say about that – ED RITZEMA is a LIAR! No actually he is an incompetent LIAR Three appointments and three guys to measure a deck?????? Later on June 24th I hear from (who says he is the owner) and who gives me a lot of apologies and excuses about the delay at the company in Germany but I point out to him- that had this been ordered in a timely manner a bit of a delay on the production side would have made NO difference at all- this was an Ed Ritzema competency problem. I suggested that perhaps he could have Ed pay for the second half of my awning thinking that might teach him a lesson about customer service and efficiency but he balked and told me he would be sued. Then he said “I should probably fire him” and I laughed ruefully and told him he SHOULD FIRE HIM, but that I knew he wasn’t going to because the guy has been there twenty years (maybe he just getting too old to for the job and that is why he had to come out THREE TIMES to measure for one awning) – The owner and I ended the conversation with him saying he would call back on the 25th with more answers about the time frame. So finally the owner called me and scheduled an installation on the 2nd of - except he said there were parts missing – they would finish the job later when the parts came in but meantime they would get me AN AWNING for my party (which, while it was very nice of him to ensure that, should NOT have been necessary if Ed Ritzema had timely ordered the awning in the first place) The crew came and did the preliminary install on 2nd and they were very nice (four of them , , and ?) It took them basically three hours (12 man hours) which may explain why the thing is so expensive in the first place. They knew they would be back and told me so. They said the shop had talked to Germany and the Germans were SURPRISED to hear parts were missing but then found them in the corner of their shop and were shipping them on 7/2… well must have been on the slow boat because I didn’t get the final installation until 7/18…. Just one week shy of three months – just like Ed Ritzema said 5-6 weeks NOT!!!! We are ALMOST THREE MONTHS from April 24th - my first appointment - where I attempted to buy an awning from this company- I finally have an awning Thank God for social media because I can warn other potential customers to avoid these people like the plague… my yelp reviews and Angie’s list reviews, blog, and any other place I can think of to tell people how Ed Ritzema is both incompetent and a liar- and right about now I am thinking the BBB might also have a forum available to me…

My awning was damaged at 9:30pm on 2/18 from chunks of ice falling off my new leaf guard gutters. After calling the next day, they were able to come the same day and remove the damaged awning. Since they had the old awning, I asked them to measure it and give me an estimate for a new awning. Since they had an "A" ...More rating on Angie's list and the price they quoted was lower then some of the prices I saw from other vendors on Angie's List, I ordered the awning and was told it would be installed in approximately 2 weeks. Much to my surprise they came back in 5 days and installed my new awning. I was very happy, as I missed having an awning. The crew was pleasant, did the job quickly and cleaned up nicely.

The night before large pieces of ice fell off my roof and damaged the awning above my front door. It was just hanging from the building, blocking my front door. I checked Angie's List for a provider and found . Luckily there was a review in there about them removing a damaged awning and they opened at 7am. I called them ...More as soon as they opened and talked to one of the employees about my problem. He said they were doing an install not far from me and could probably take it down, but he would have to talk to the boss. He also asked if I was "OK", that was nice. I received a call from Will around 8:10 and he said they would be able to take it down and would be at my house after the install, around 10:30. They arrived at 11 and before I could even get my coat on and get out the back door, the awning was down and out of my yard. YEA! They had eveything done and cleaned up in less than 20 minutes! And, while they were finishing up, I asked them for an estimate for a new awning since they could use the old one for dimensions. Everyone was so polite and kind, I really appreciated it.
A new awning is on order. So I will be doing business with them again!


is very professional and technically knowledgeable. He is always on time and his crew as well. The work was done very well and they did a good job on clean up when they completed the job.

The contractor would work with me on any changes that might be needed after any tear off (siding) etc. there were no extra costs for these changes. They did clean up on a daily bases and left the site clean. They wanted to make sure I was pleased with the work they were doing and pointed out any issues they came accross.The house looks great with new siding and windows.
- John J.

returned my call promptly and we had a conversation about what I was looking for . He said he would be out in a day or two and call when he was coming. Two days later he called and came by. We had to go out so he left the breakdown and cost in our mailbox. We okayed the price and he said it would be about ten days for him to ...More make it . About nine days later he phoned to let us know it was ready and would we be home the following morning? The next morning phoned to let us know the installers were on the way and would be there about eleven . At quarter to eleven they arrived and installed it. My husband watched as they finished the work and wrote them a check for the agreed amount. They were polite and did a job that far exceeded our expectations. The awning is the exact color I wanted and the quality surpasses the ones I have seen locally. Plus, is a great guy to deal with, did exactly as he said.
- Donna J.

Responsive sales team kept appointment, was on time, brought lots of samples for us to choose from, and did detailed measurements and left us with an estimate. We selected the colors and discussed them with our neighbors who were also interested in ordering the same awning (connected townhouses). We called back to place the order for both units and ...More they stopped to pick up a deposit check. The awnings took a little longer than we expected to be made and installed, and we thought the cost was a little high, but the quality is excellent and they look great over our front doors.

They were excellent. He took them all day, but with the work they did it was understandable. The estimate was what the end price was, the men were very polite, courteous, put it up and used their own ladder and stuff. They were great. I would definitely call them back.
