Reviews in Pittsburgh to Install Retractable Awnings
AAffordable Tent & Awnings
The sales rep, Josh, was very informative and professional. He showed up on time and was able to answer all our questions. We felt very comfortable placing our order. The price was $500 less than another vendor's estimate. These awnings are custom-made. We originally were going to pay an extra $500 for a motorized model, but Josh assured us that we could handle the manual operation. Within 3 weeks, our retractable awning was installed. Josh was right, we can easily open and close the awning. We definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for a porch or deck awning.

Outstanding overall company. This is a true family owned and operated business that manufacturers locally. Josh, the salesman was very knowledgeable and was the only salesman out of 4 that actually asked and cared where the sun was positioned compared to my deck. They were very timely and kept all promises, i literally got a phone call within an hour of giving my info. I was shocked David the installer was done in a little over an hour. I can tell the awning was top quality after doing extensive research and was surprised it was the least expensive of the 4 i received. I already reffered two of my friends to this company. I WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS COMPANY.

Project had a few problems but Chuck made sure all was done right in the end. I gave a B for punctuality but I understand things can go wrong on a previous job. I would recommend Chuck as he is pleasant and takes the time to inform you about alternatives and what he can do.

We called this provider last summer to get a quote on a retractable awning in front of our pool. He said they would call back in a week. Never heard from them.

This company is great!!! I have never had a better experience with a home improvement project. I was contacted in less than an hour after leaving a voice mail message by a very polite and knowledgeable salesman named Josh. An appointment was made and Josh came to my home a few days later exactly on time. He had a working model of the retractable awning and made a terrific presentation explaining clearly the features and functions of the product. I was able to see the quality and performance of it on the spot! He had many photos to show different styles and installations. He proudly told the story of the family owned business and how their awnings were made locally. It was an easy decision to go with Affordable Tents and Awnings. Other companies gave me bids that were much higher and had little to show except a brochure. Josh gave me a detailed description of how the awning would be built and installed as well as helping us with the fabric selection. It was a family project, his Mom and Dad would make the awning and his brother would install it. The awning was completed right on schedule. I talked to Linda (Mom) about scheduling the installation and a few days later David (brother) and his crew arrived, right on time. They were courteous, professional and very skilled. The awning was up in under two hours. It is beautiful! The work site was left clean and neat. David showed me all the features and controls and provided tips on cleaning and winter storage. He even explained their warranty which is far better than any of the other companies I researched! Great product, great service, great price, great warranty. I am a satisfied customer.

Company comprised of Father (Jack) and son (Justin) Roth team and associated electrician and other expertise, as needed. Desired to replace intermediate size, worn retractable awning over back deck with much larger retractable awning. Jack R. either answered or promptly returned all my calls, came to the home and spent more than 1.5 hours measuring the space explaining the options I had, the types of motors used in the installation, the method used to fasten and securely hold the large awning to the home and care that would be needed. I had an excellent and intelligent discussion regarding most of the aspects of purchasing and their installation of the awning. Used the manufacturer's website to place their awning covers onto a photo of my home to compare with the colors of the brick, decking and window frames. It was very useful. Both owners (Jack and Justin) and an electrician installed the awning. The work was at the highest level professionally, and both owners interacted with me to ensure that every installation detail was covered and the awning and placement were correct and to my satisfaction. Considerable time and effort were spent with me for the explanation of the operation and maintenance of the awning now and in the future. I most definitely would recommend this company and their employees for future installations. They definitely get an A+ rating from me.

Everly construction is a small business and one of their services includes installation of retractable awnings. They were very helpful in selecting the brand to be installed and were very responsive with questions. They provided a good estimate for the time the work was to be done and updated us along the way. Installation was finished in one day and they took great care in the work they did. I would recommend them without hesitation.

CKLA Construction Inc
We ordered a SunSetter Awning from KLA Construction in late June. About 3 weeks later, it was installed by the company's employees. While our awning is serviceable, we had some concerns after it was installed. We were told that although the awning is right over our back door, there was room for it to clear the door without any problem. In fact, when the awning is retracted, the front edge that hangs down does not clear the back door and the corner of our screen door scrapes against it every time we open or shut it. The installer actually told us to just put some black electrical tape over the corner of our door so the scraping would not damage the awning. We were offered three options to fix this, but it would have been totally at our expense. The one fix that would take care of the issue cost over $600. Our feeling was that during the initial sales visit, our situation was not studied carefully enough, and that KLA should bear at least some of the cost for the fix. After some phone calls and discussion back and forth, we were told KLA would not cover a portion of any fixes. As a next step, we wrote an email to the representative to indicate our feelings and after four plus weeks, we received absolutely no response. After leaving 2 messages over 4 days via phone, we finally heard from the representative that KLA's position was unchanged. We had a second concern about how far we were shown the awning would extend by the salesperson demonstrating where it would extend. While we believe we were given inaccurate information in this instance also, we can't prove we were shown something that was not accurate. Regardless, we feel the first issue is clearly the result of a less-than-careful assessment of our set-up, and there is no question that we were told that the awning would clear the door. We are disappointed not only with KLA's unwillingness to accept some responsibility, but their lack of a timely response when we took the time to write a letter regarding our concern. We question whether we would have heard anything had we not called back. We are disappointed with how they handled the situation and our concern.
Recent Review: During a heavy rainstorm, I heard water dripping through my walls! I called and they came right out and checked it out. I had holes in my box gutters and the previous roofer had done a poor job on the shingles and my awnings needed to be re caulked. Because of the weather, it took about 6 weeks for them to come and complete the job. I was very happy with what they did and, I believe it fixed the problem. It rained today and I didn't hear any noises in the walls. I'm hoping this fixed the problem.
Recent Review: Being from England I know a high-quality retractable awning when I see one. I moved to Chicago from the UK and decided to install a retractable awning at my house. I looked at many reviews on this website and others and came to the conclusion that a retractable awning from [*** Link removed ***] was the obvious choice. Installed now for 4 1/2 years and have not had a single problem with it and don't expect to. We love it and use it frequently in the spring and summer months. My wife and I have only praise for the gents at Retractableawnings.com and commend them on offering high-quality European products, providing great service and a terrific 25-year non-prorated warranty.

Recent Review: This was our second great experience contracting with Pittsburgh Window & Door. Back around 2010, they replaced the aluminum awnings at our former residence. The new ones looked amazing. When I expressed concerns about how the front porch awning was finished in one of the interior corners, one of the skillful owners came right out and worked his magic with some custom metalwork. Within a year, we put our home on the market as planned. With these gleaming new awnings highly visible from the street, we received two full-price offers within 48 hours! Needless to say, the curb appeal of this home was dramatically improved as result of this project. Fast forward to spring 2013 when we decided to replace the windows in our current home. After sitting through two other sales pitches, I suddenly remembered Pittsburgh Window & Door Co. from our old neighborhood. In hopes that the company served the East Allegheny County region, I gave them a call and the rest is history. We chose to purchase the Simonton Reflections 5500 series. We customized the order by selecting the color "driftwood" for both the interior and exterior surfaces. In addition, we selected the double perimeter style grid pattern for a sleek look both indoors and outside. I am beyond thrilled with how these windows look and operate. The installation took the better part of two days which was expected and reasonable for a two-man team assigned to the job.
