“We needed a 20’ x 12’ electric shade installed in our condo. We were very nervous about it and spoke to several companies who declined the project. AVDG came in and made the whole process easy. They gave us great options, they were patient while we worked through our decisions. They were extremely affordable (considering what we needed). In the end we could not be happier. 10/10 would shade again.”
