As I said, I purchased the brackets in a powder coated gray colored paint however, I wanted the awning to match my trim, storm door, light fixtures and house address numbers colors. I ordered a custom color paint and repainted all of the metal items (even the aluminum pieces) with this color (2 coats). Caution, if one decides to do this, take care of the type of paint you use because powder coated surfaces are difficult to re-paint. A strong primer will be needed to assure proper adhesion. I had to use a primer.
I purchased this awning for installation in a recessed soffit (5 foot wide X 2 foot deep) over the front entrance of my house. The soffit construction consisted of cedar siding over plywood sheathing on 2 X 4 wood studs. The soffit its self was 3/8" rough sawn cedar plywood. The instructions (not many words, just a series of graphics explaining how to install the awning) that came with the awning did NOT address this type of construction at all. The fasteners provided addressed installation in basically masonry walls. The lag bolts (5/16" X 3-1/2" long) provided would work in wood framed walls IF the bracket holes aligned with the wood studs in the wall (they did not).
Being an Architect, knowing the importance of a very positive, strong connection between a cantilevered awning and the house exterior wall, I needed to verify the actual construction I had in the soffit. Hoping that I had a double 2 X 8 or 2 X 10 double header of sufficient length across the opining and thickness of the headers for the use of the provided lag bolts, I removed the soffit plywood soffit to find out for sure. Just my luck, I did not, soffits generally do not need headers becaust they are not normally bearing walls. Therefore, I had more work to do. I had to construct additional wood attachment for the bracket hole fasteners as well as additional wall bracing to the soffit wall to transfer any excessive loads back to my house walls. I sketched a very crude detail for this additional wood framing, see below (might help you). I used new 5/16" X 5" bolts (washers and nuts), not lag screws, as well as ALL wood screws (#9 X 3-1/2" long) to construct this detail to insure a very strong, braced connection for the awning.
Tip, if you install long wood screws and lag bolts, always drill the right diameter pilot hole first, coat the fastener threads with bee's wax or any wax first. Lag bolts can break off if they are over stressed. If they do, you now really have a problem dealing with getting the broken piece out of the hole.
So, even though my installation was not as typical as I originally thought, when completed, I was very satisfied with the end result. Sorry this is so long but, I thought the info provided may help others.
Update July 2015- Had a strong storm this month with 60 mph winds. The plexiglass blew out of the awning and broke on two pieces when it hit the house. It also caused damaged to my vinyl siding. I originally gave it 5 stars but it only lasted a year installed on my house.
Palram was easy to reach, and supplied all but the left roof joist but that is on back-order for three weeks !
7/5/17 update: The missing roof joist showed up in about two weeks. It is now installed, and looks great !
This is a quality awning. The initial problem was that the Amazon retailer shipped me a previously opened package which was missing it's hardware package. Palram (the distributor) is easy to reach and quite cooperative. This is the third one of these I have installed. One other came with some crushed nylon rip covers, which Palram promptly replaced.
