One of the most important decisions is choosing the right fabric for your shade sail.

In this section, we explain your options, including colours, fabrics and benefits of each. Click here.

It is very important to understand the difference between a consultation and a quote.

There are very rarely ‘standard’ requirements, construction issues and designs. Therefore take time to understand your needs before using our expertise to develop a proposal that best serves them.

A typical proposal includes:

1. SITE PLAN… click for a sample
2. DIGITAL REPRESENTATION … click for a sample
3. DETAILED COSTINGS … click for a sample
4. LETTER OF EXPLANATION … click for a sample

A great deal of work is involved in this process, and it important that our clients understand the importance of this phase. Although we charge a nominal fee, this is included and taken out of the costs of going forward.

However, we are happy to provide phone estimates prior to site assessment so call us on (03) 9598-4666 to arrange an estimate or a site assessment today.
