Mark the mounting location on the wall of the house where you want to install the awning. Place a level on the wall and mark a line under the level. Use that line as a starting point and extend the line with a chalk string.
Place a tape measure over the line and place a mark for each mounting bracket. Make each bracket evenly spaced.
Hold the bracket against the wall using the line you previously marked. Place the level on the side of the bracket, make sure the bracket is perfectly straight and mark the mounting holes of the bracket. Do this with each mounting bracket.
Drill pilot holes in the side of the house for the lag bolts with a hand drill and then secure the brackets to the side of the house with the lag bolts supplied with the awning and a socket.
Place the awning onto the brackets and thread the retaining screw through the front of each bracket with a socket.
Plug the awning in to an electrical outlet if it is automated. If not, open the awning with the hand crank.
