I have had a New Image awning from Mark Bidelman at Sun & Shade Awning for 3 years. I really enjoy the fact that the awning covers my whole deck and shades my sun room, so when the South West sun beats down in the afternoons, I simply put the awning out and my deck and corner of my home are completely shaded. This greatly helps cut down on my air conditioning and comfort on my deck on those sultry summer days when you need some great relief from the sun! Mark is a top-notch small business owner who loves the product he sells and installs and stands by his product 100%.
Additionally, Mark installed 3 stationary awning’s on the kitchen of my parents centennial farm house a couple years ago. They love the way the awning’s cut the summer heat from their South and West windows and they have been able to reduce their air conditioning in their kitchen in half on the hottest days of the summer! They also love the way the awning’s add such nice ascetics to their home without spending a whole lot of money!
I live in a west-facing home on a lake so the setting sun was always so severe in the summer we had to move in from the deck and keep the blinds down and the curtains drawn from about 2pm every day. When we bought our Sunsetter awning, all that changed. Now we not only can enjoy our living room all day long but our deck is like an extra room right on the water! After getting the Sunsetter awning, we would never live without it again. And Mark Bidelman, the owner of Sun & Shade Awning was extremely professional, thorough and fast … he made us feel like friends instead of customers. Thanks Mark! We are truly satisfied customers!

Last summer, we had the pleasure of working with Mark Bidleman of Sun and Shade Awning. We shopped around, and the quality of his product is without compare. We absolutely love our awning and the installation was professional and perfect. The follow-up service and attention to detail has been above our expectations. If you are even considering getting an awning, do yourself a favor and call Mark Bidleman at Sun and Shade.

Cork and I want you to know we love, love, love our new awning. The remote control is so slick, we just press the button and out it goes and it is absolutely beautiful. Just glides right out in no time. Doesn’t make a sound and only takes a minute. The pattern you recommended is just perfect. I even want it out when it is shady, just because it looks so beautiful. The area you chose to install on the roof, is also the perfect spot. The delivery and installation was quick and painless for us.
When we built out house in 2004-06, if I had realized how perfect this awning was I would have installed on my other enclosed porch windows. Who knows, we might do that yet. Thanks again for all your recommendations and all your help.

I am the owner of The Waterfront Bistro on the water at Jimmerson James Landing, Angola Indiana. I built a waterfront restaurant with a outside deck on the water and wanting to max the use of it during the summer season I knew that the Sun would both attract and detract people to use the deck so I got on the internet and saw a company called Sun & Shade. I thought to myself that is exactly what I need ( Both ). I called Mark Bidelman and after I explained my project and what I wanted to do I new that Mark had the expertise to do what I wanted. My background is tool and die so I knew after talking with Mark that he was above most people that just want to sell a awning. He said that he would come down and we would brainstorm the problems that my project presented. Mark spent a lot of time not even knowing if he would get the job. I recommend Mark highly to come up with the best possible awning for your business or home. Come see what he has done for The Waterfront Bistro and while you are checking out the beautiful awning that Mark has done for me enjoy it and have a drink and sandwich on the deck.
