Got my Shademaker installed 3days ago and I'm very happy with the style and construction. My only suggestion would be for Shademaker to put a couple velcro straps to hold awning in bag, so you could use both hands to close zippers. It's a bit of a balancing act for one person.

For Those with Screen Room Walls

Here's a variation on the theme. We got the screen room sidewalls so we needed the support bars (hozizontal ones) to align with the edge of the awning. Cutting it short will not work for the screen rooms.

I attached a 1x2 oak ledger in three places to the shell with 1/4 inch stainless bolts and acorn nuts. I put rubber washers between the board and the shell to seal up the holes. The ledger is a full 8 feet long I then attached the 2 four foot awning rail to that. I liked this approach also because there are fewer holes in the fiberglass shell. The ledger made of oak is super strong and allows for very little flex. I also ripped a 45 degree angle on the bottom of the ledger so the ball and socket connectors could mount vertically.

Very please with the outcome. I recommend this solution for those using the screen room sidewalls.
