Panels in California

Hi Len,
3 hrs. to put in the eyelets yesterday; 1 1/2 hrs. to hang the panels today. Everything went flawlessly; it was easy to see how much time it must have taken you to work out all the details and put together such a complete package. As you can see, the color is perfect also. Anyway, I am very pleased with the whole project, and please feel free to use it as a reference here in SoCal.-

Thanks again,

Hi Len,
The shades are installed and we are very pleased!  I found a helper for yesterday rather than mess around with how to do it by myself. We got better very quickly.  The first one took about 45 minutes.  We were constantly in the wrong place, with the wrong tools, and moving ladders way too much.  By the second one we were getting better, about 30 minutes.  By the third, we were down to 15 minutes, and the last 3 went up in under 12 minutes. Good learning curve.

We are really thrilled with the look and feel.  We love the color 
selection and the quality of your work.  Thanks for all your patient working with me on the order.

Thanks again,

Livermore, CA

Hi Len,
Shades arrived, and now installed. We need to replace a window (planned but not complete) before finishing the last one. Already notice a fantastic difference in shade and coolness. I expect the sun will never reach our house on those long hot summer days (like today!) We'll be placing our order for our other ones in a few days after final measurements are made. I can send final pictures of everything once our decks are all complete - that won't be until end of August.

Thanks for your beautiful product!

Shades Installed

Wooden Shade

Hi Len,
I completed the install yesterday. My "helper" was unavailable until later so I used bungee cords to hold the shades up to install height. It worked like a charm. The shades look great and my wife loves them. See attached photos.

I had never heard of retractable canopies before and didn't have a patio cover, just some ideas about what I'd like. Len helped me with design of my patio cover and answered endless questions about his retractable canopies. He was extremely helpful. The canopies he made for me were very nice and work as described. The weekend I put them up we got lots of wind, rain and even hail and the canopies held up great. Installation was pretty easy. I would definitely recommend these canopies.y helpful and I am so happy with the outcome. I wish all businesses would treat their customers as you do and I will recommend you to all my associates. Thanks again for your help.

Wooden Deck & Canopy

Hi Len,
I would like to thank you for going out of your way to get me this product as soon as possible far and beyond your normal lead times. You are absolutely right that after you get the first one up you feel like an idiot for having so much trouble. Your product is terrific. It functions great and in my case makes a cheap pergola look expensive. My clients are also very thrilled with your product and have told me many other friends have commented on it -- so we might have some more work down the road. I look forward to working with you again, and thank you for everything.
