Reviews in Chicago to Install Retractable Awnings

Thatcher Retractables
5.0
We visited their showroom and were given information on their products and the installation was discussed. We were lookin at several options and Randy made an appointment to come out and make recommendations that would serve our needs. On the date of our appointment he called and explained he would be 15 - 20 minutes late which was appreciated. After surveying our options he recommended one that would work best for our needs and felt we would only be wasting money with our second option and felt only one awning would serve our needs. Two weeks latter they called to set up an appointment for installation and two workers showed up on time and did a very professional job. They took the time to instruct on the use and care of the unit and answered any questions we had. I would recommend this company. I am not sure they are the cheapest but their service is worth the cost.

Rodney told us about the company, showed us where the awnings are sewn and assembled (on-site), demonstrated how the retractable awnings operate using the display models in the showroom, and answered all of our questions. He was knowledgeable and friendly and took all the time we needed to satisfy us. We made an appointment for the representative to come out to measure and write up our order: 18' x 10' retractable awning, front vertical screen, remote control and winter cover. The awning was ready about 5 weeks later and 2 installers came out, installed the awning, made the necessary motor adjustments, and instructed us how to operate the awning, both with and without (i.e., power outage) the motor. We've had it for almost 3 weeks now and we're very happy with the awning and our entire experience with Thatcher Retractables. I gave them an A for Price although we did not get another quote for comparison, but we are quite satisfied with the quality, appearance, and operation of the awning. We especially like that they are a local company, we could see what we were buying, the awning is made locally, and they are available if and when necessary in the future.

We researched several options and providers and chose Thatcher. I read several reviews and decided their product and company would be the best. The installation went fine except they couldn't do the installation on their first visit because one team member was not strong enough to assist in carrying the awning up to our third floor condo. One member was complaining about this. Probably should have kept that to himself. A new team member came back a couple days later and the installation went fine. However, I had to call Thatcher to find out when they were coming back out. They should have called me. It's been two months, and no issues. We love the product. I would recommend this type of awning to anyone living in a condo with a deck because it adds a new room and more space to enjoy.

Russ came out and gave me an estimate after explaining all my options. The awning is made right here in the USA in Burr Ridge. Dan came out to install the awning 6/8 and explained how to work it, what to do in the event of a power outage.

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.

On 11/12/2019 a representative came to our home. He took the order for a retractable awning for our home and an $1800 deposit and a promise for an early Spring 2020 installation. We have not heard from them since. When i call I get a recorded message saying Thatcher Retractable has gone out of business and the customer list, contact information and Thatcher phone number was purchased by Exclusive Retractable. They also do not return phone calls. There is a letter on line from Rodney Alott, owner of Thatcher, that says he sold the business in December 2019. When you call the number you get a recording saying it's now Exclusive and they will get back to you, but don't. It also says that Thatcher filed bankruptcy in February 2020. If that is really true, I should have been notified as someone that is due a product/service from Thatcher. I have a contract from them for a $3699 awning that i never received. I question if Exclusive Retractable Awnings, Matthew Short - owner even exists. Possibly a fictitious company to help Rodney Alott avoid making restitution for the accounts that he owes money and services to.

They have a nice showroom and explained everything in detail. They came and did the installation. They also offer some other services like coming to cover it in the winter and some other extras. We picked them because they are a local company and we will be able to call them if something happens with it. We also used them because we can have the put the sun setter when we want. Sun setter are cheaper but you have get someone to put that for you. However, the price was the same and that is why I went with them.

We were not pleased with the company. 3-4 week installation turned into almost 7 weeks, however they did remain diligent about sending us billing reminders throughout our wait. We needed to call them to ask about delivery repeatedly. When the awnings did come in, they did not contact us to schedule installation. During installation, 2 window screens were ripped and the siding was scraped and scratched in several places from sliding their ladder across the house. One section of siding was buckled when the retractable hardware was put in place as well. We had looked into other companies, who came in with higher estimates. In hindsight, we should not have let the lower cost be the deciding factor. We are very glad that it is finished, but would not recommend to others.

Installers were new. Was a good thing we sat in our yard & watched the installation. Had discussed details with the co. owner during quote but was never relayed to installers. They had to pull up part of our siding to install, had hard time finding studs, left greasy finger prints on the whole length of dormer. They reluctantly removed after we insisted. Installer wanted to cut stability feet to fit deck or leave hanging over. We told them to change limit of opening so the feet would fit properly. Installer measured for new side screen but came too short. I refused screen. Sent email to owner who called yelled & screamed at me. Told me I was not a nice person. Told me installers complained we watched every move. Said they did not want to come back. Tried to explain we even gave them a case of water & $20 tip. All he wanted was the balance paid & send an email saying job was completed satisfactory. We had pd half deposit, balance at completion. When I refused, he hung up on me. I sent him another email explaining the problems we had (there were more but too many to mention) Couple hrs later, he sent an email, apologized for yelling (not for what he said) Told me to measure & he will make. Next day very nice lady came to our house & measured for screen. (She actually makes them) Eventually they got it right. But it took a couple of more trips. I paid but did not like the treatment & never heard back from owner, once he got his money.

They repaired it beautifully. They had to take the whole thing apart and put it back together again and did a wonderful job. The brand of awning that we have is not one that they provide or promote. But, still they were able to repair the awning and attach it to our home in such a way that a storm would not cause the same damage again. I felt they went out of their way to work with us even though we were not carrying their product line.

THE EXPERIENCE WAS VERY POOR. THE COMPANY WAS NOT KNOWLEDGEABLE IN THE PRODUCT THEY WERE SELLING. WE ORDERED THE AWNING IN MARCH OF 2004, AND DID NOT GET ALL THE PROBLEMS RESOLVED UNTIL MAY. THEY HAD TO COME TO DO REPAIRS AT LEAST 4 TIMES. THEY WERE SLOW TO RESPOND, DID NOT RETURN CALLS, AND MADE EXCUSES FOR EVERYTHING.

The owner, Rodney, came to our house to meet with us. He was our original sales associate about 12 years ago when we bought the awning. He brought books of sample fabrics for our selection. His crew removed our awning, took it to the shop in Burr Ridge, where they tuned up the motor, cleaned the framework and put the new awning in place. A 2-person crew reinstalled the awning - which we LOVE! Of all the projects we are doing this summer to the inside and outside of our home, this job was by far the most pleasant,. We highly recommend Thatcher Retractables! They do all the production in their own facility, they have very friendly personnel, and Rodney truly cared about giving us exactly what we wanted for our awning.

We wanted an aluminum awning to be installed over the front door of my mother's home. We were very pleased with our choice of Awnings Unlimited of Brookfield (Awnings by Harry). Harry, himself, came out to do the measurements and price quote. That meeting was on June 22 and the awning was installed on June 30. My husband watched the men install the awning and was very impressed by their professionalism and the quality of the installation. The awning looks great and we expect that it will withstand bad weather based on the heavy duty installation.

Contacted the company through their website email. Received a call the next day from Russ and we set up a date of our choosing for him to come to the house. He showed up on time and explained the difference between the 3 different awnings they sell. He was very pleasant and low key, no pressure. He explained everything thoroughly and had samples of the awning material for us to choose from. We ended up ordering a motorized awning for our deck and were told that it would be installed sometime in the next month, which was fine as it was still March when we ordered. They called a little over a week later to install, which was so much sooner than we thought. We picked out a Monday and it ended up snowing 5 inches! As the awning was going to be installed on our roof, we asked them not to come out due to safety concerns. They agreed and set a date for a week later. Two men showed up early to install, did a very professional job, cleaned up completely and explained how to operate it manually should we lose power. We have had a few nice sunny days now and have opened the awning to shade our kitchen. It works quietly and beautifully. We are completely satisfied with our purchase and everyone we have met from Thatcher Retractables.

Recent Review: The salesman, Iver Jr., came to my home, took measurements, and gave me a demo of the product--a triple-paned vinyl window. The quote was higher than all but one (Andersen) of the other companies I looked at, but I really liked the product. I never felt pressured to commit to buying through them. The crew was very nice and worked very quickly, and from what I can tell they did a very nice job. They cleaned up pretty well after the job. I was very impressed with how quickly they worked--it only took one day to do all of the windows! The windows look GREAT. Overall, I am pretty satisfied. A few of the windows are bit hard to lock, but I think they will loosen up over time. Other than that I haven't noticed any problems yet. The best part is that they gave me a lifetime transferable warranty on the windows AND labor, so even if there is a problem, I don't have to pay for it. I am planning to use this company in the future, possibly when I get storm doors.

Recent Review: I would just go with them for awnings, but I wouldn't do doors or windows. I think the awnings are their specialty. The salesman didn't return a few calls, and didn't get back to me like I thought he should. They guys that put the awning up was really good.

Recent Review: Lester is an amazing contractor. He also did a siding job for a friend of mine and it went very well. The work was done as scheduled, very neatly and within budget. He and his crew asked questions if they needed any clarification and left my house as clean as it was before the job began. I would highly recommend Lester and Hetman Enterprises. A+++

Recent Review: Eric was very responsive and provided a detailed cost estimate. The windows took a little bit longer than planned (due to the size), but were in within 7 weeks of the permit being issued. The installers were very clean and thorough. They used an extensive amount of caulking to ensure no leakage of air or water. I am very happy with the windows and had Eric come back to estimate a future project for me.

Recent Review: When our roof was damaged by hail, we needed a reliable contractor to replace it for us. Michon Siding replaced our siding last year and the job was so impressive that just by observing, (2) of our neighbors decided to have Michon do their siding. We immediately looked to them to replace our roof. As before, the work was done quickly, professionally and is absolutely Beautiful, giving the finish touch to our home. Michon Siding is the very best contractor we have ever dealt with and is highly recommended.

Recent Review: Brian La Pelusa should be on your short-list of people to call if you need new windows. I was considering replacing five bedroom windows and asked Brian for options in my budget. He arrived on-time and provided all his license, bonding and registration forms for the company. After looking at the three options we initially discussed, he called me back and suggested I look at a competing brand, because it would better fit my price range. That kind of honesty is rare.

Recent Review: They are a great company to work with and I would highly recommend them. They are very good workers and they are constantly working. These awnings are the exact same that I purchased many years ago, and they are the only company that makes this type of awning. Everyone else has pre-made awnings, these awnings, you have to make special. All of the storms I have been through, they have endured and I love these.

Recent Review: My initial call to request an appointment was handled nicely and professionally. I did call back to reschedule, and that was handled professionally as well. The salesman, Russell, was prompt and knowledgeable. He had records from when the awning over my front door was installed (by a previous homeowner) and was able to tell me details about the fabric and style. This really helped in selecting new fabric. He was also helpful in recommending a style of awning to install over the side door. He stated that they were running about five weeks for installation. He wrote up the order and I made a 50% deposit. A crew came out about a week or so later to confirm measurements for the awnings. A representative from the company called a day before the installation. The installation was about four to five weeks after the initial order. The installers did a nice job and adjusted/improved how the awning over the front door was installed. They were pleasant and worked quickly.
