How to hoist up a 20' awning
« on: June 04, 2011, 03:55:10 PM »
OK, so I've installed several 12' and 14' awnings but my latest client wants a 20' awning and it will need to approximately 10/11' in the air on the sidewall of a 2-story house. I'm a little uneasy at using 2 ladders and 2 guys to hoist this thing up that high in the air. Before I let this opportunity get away... does anyone have any suggestions on a safe, easier way to hoist this up? Thanks

Get an extra guy to help. We usually only need 2 guys even for the 20 ft Motorized Pro which is the heaviest. Try to get 2 - 8 ft step ladders if your going up 11 ft.  I cant think of anything that could hoist one up.
