Thank you Rader Awning! Last night provided my wife and I the opportunity to evaluate the functionality which originally led us to the Rader solution: sun and rain protection over our back patio. After an evening full of Albuquerque monsoons, our patio was protected and dry! As far as normal sun protection, we had validated that the week prior with a late afternoon cook-out for some twenty-plus guests. Again the awning performed flawlessly. Thank you for providing us with our custom and unique awning!
