Thanks for the feedback! I'm planning on an 18 footer. Would that install
still be classed as "easy"?
I originally planned a soffit mount. The soffit surface is 3" wide (3x8s --
24" OC) and 101" above my patio. I could also wall mount it on the 4x8 beam
the 3x8s rest on which would give me more flexibility regarding where I bolt
the brackets. I think the mount height would be the same either way. Is
there any advantage to either?
The install is the same for all sizes.Mounting the brackets will be the
same.You must be sure to have 3/4 helpers when your ready to mount it to the
brackets.This takes no time at all if you took the time to mount the
brackets perfectly in line.All this is on their web site.
I couldn't find any installation info on their web site. I must be looking
at the wrong place.
http://www.sunsetter.com/simple_installation.asp Doesn't give any details
All it says is: "All you need is a few simple tools and you can have your
SunSetter up and working in just a morning."
Can you give me a better link?
I ordered that one a couple days ago. The $201 savings and free cover are
automatic through Dec 3, 2007. Guess I'll just have to wait. It sure would
be nice to get some engineering data, fabricate samples, etc. before making
a decision on a $2000 purchase though.
Ordered the DVD and info kit on Oct 25. Haven't received it yet.
I'm planning on calling them on Monday. I'm hoping they can connect me with
someone who can help.
If I can't get the info I'm after, I'll move onto plan B: contact a local
contractor. He should have what I need but I really don't like wasting his
time when I plan to buy it on-line as a DIY project. I briefly mentioned
it to the windows & doors rep at Lowes. I bought $2,000 in doors and
installation from them on Friday. I'll press him for more info next week.
