Pioneer Exteriors is one of the few companies in Raleigh that installs metal awnings (as opposed to fabric awnings). They were very professional from start to finish. The estimate required a visit from one of the representatives. I received the estimate on site. When I decided to go ahead and have the work done, it took about three weeks until the awning was installed (an afternoon's work). The awning looks great, and is intended to help with drainage problem at door and surrounding area. The final cost was exactly what the estimate predicted. To me, the price seems excessive for a single door awning, but I would have had to pay to get the proper equipment to do the project myself and still would not be confident that I did it properly without creating issues in the brick masonry, so it was worth it to me to have the awning installed by professionals.
