Atlantic Awning Company did my awnings at our restaurant and we were more than pleased with every aspect of the transaction. They were very professional and the awnings were even better than we had hoped for. Thanks to the recommendations Cheryl made on the arm design, they came out beautifully and we get compliments from our guests all the time. I had absolutely no issues, and I worked with both Cheryl and Mark. I would definitely use them again, although with the quality of the awnings we just got, I doubt I will need them for many, many years.
