If you need an outdoor awning, you can stop searching for the best vendor; use Alpha Productions! Alpha Productions installed my Continental patio awning back in 2004. After a decade of direct sun, the cover needed replacement, but the retractable awning worked fine. I called and spoke with Linda who still had my records on file, and she was able to give me a quote over the phone for its replacement. I decided to pay Alpha an unannounced visit, to check out their fabric options. There was Linda, friendly and helpful, and ready to clip swatches and price out options, and they had so many fabrics it was hard to choose. If you have time to visit the facility, it's quite a treat. Linda gave us an impromptu mini-tour of the warehouse where the products are constructed, and told us a bit about the company's history of being the first to bring European style-awning technology in the US. The workspace was immaculate and incredibly efficient. Instead of discarding leftover fabric clippings, they make tote bags, and my friend and I left with complimentary gifts from Linda and owner Vatche. The installation team was courteous and professional, and in addition to replacing the cover, inspected, serviced and cleaned the mechanical awning. They left it looking like new. I also look forward to contracting them for window treatments in the future. I wholeheartedly recommend Alpha Productions; they deliver high quality, reliable products and services.
