I know they have a good reputation for quality stuff, but man are they expensive....
Zip Dee is # 1. All of their products are # 1. Their prices, while seemingly high, are really rather cheap, when you
figure the cost per year.
Other brands, last 5 years, generally speaking.
Zip Dee's last 25 to 30 years, and more, especially when they changed to nylon stitching.
The cost you were quoted, is for fabric "only."
The cost for the case, fabric and roller is much more.
I am not at my office, so I can't quote a price.
The cost of the "CFR" considering "ZERO" risk of installation, is well worth it.
The cost for "fabric only" gets to be far more expensive than the "CFR," when you consider the failure rate of proper installation to be almost 100 percent.
I don't know who you talked to by name, but if it was "Matt," I would take what he says less than a grain of salt.
Sorry, he just sent a drop shipped awning to us, instead of directly to the customer, "as the paper work that he filled out" instructed him to do.
The "real" Zip Dee answer person is Linda.
However, she is in Hawaii right now, staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, my home away from home.
I think she will be back to work on the 16th of July.
