Reviews in Chicago to Install Retractable Awnings

Awnings Over ChicagoLand Inc

My sales consultant, George, was complete with all the information and cost on replacement of all three awnings. Jim the owner was very congenial in setting the time for installation. Don and Eric, the installers were very professional, clean and careful during the demolition and installation. Don explained the workings and care of the awnings in a very clear concise manner. Overall it was a very good and smooth experience, and the awnings look terrific.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ended up hiring another company, but George from Evanston Awning was very impressive. Punctual, knowledgeable, able to provide clear explanations and recommendations.

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: 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.
