Kiers Canopy

Winner - 2015 OFPANZ best tension structures & canopies (50-100sqm)

Our Client had recently purchased a large renovated house with an elevated expansive deck, external fireplace and room for plenty of outdoor entertaining and family dining. It soon became apparent that umbrellas and temporary gazebos did not offer the protection from the elements the family required.

The client wanted a permanent structure that allowed outdoor living in all weather and a design that worked in with the large house and looked good. Another important consideration was the need to keep expensive outdoor furniture, bbqs and the pets’ beds out of the UV and weather.

The canopy had to be as large as the deck so that it was functional but also so that it was in scale, a large span dictated robust fixings down into a complex labyrinth of joists to ensure there were no issues with wind.

As the structure was to be built off site, this called for a detailed and lengthy site measure, this was after extensive discussion with team on site about whether this job would even be successful.

The canopy had to be installed around a chimney; this was not only the roof but arch end fills to stop weather funnelling through from the south west.
Specific offset base plates were custom made as posts and joists were not always aligned. Head height was an issue when installing screens causing the need for one off brackets, fittings and guttering. Our installers changed the design where they could to meet the client’s requests, including the creation of an extra wide flashing/gutter to enable the posts to be positioned exactly where the client wanted them.

On top of the main concerns were hours of minor works that would all come together to produce a flawless result, most details not really even noticed by the client. Our client was absolutely over the moon with the finished product. The many final bits and pieces and the complexity of this job help us to complete other complex projects, rather than just walking away at the start. Our Installation Manager’s “can do” attitude and a trusting client were key in a great finished result.

Thanks everyone for our Fresco Shade, we are thrilled with it, it looks fantastic. The whole process was stress free and indeed a pleasure, from the time Russell came out right through to installation by Steve and Julian. I have and will continue to recommend your product and service to all.

Chris and Pete Henry

We are glad we went with you in the end. We did some serious research and compared the players in the market. Even though there were cheaper options around, the design, the quality of the fabric, and your professionalism convinced us in the end. Thank you very much.

Girard de Soucanton

We have found our whole ' fresco shades experience' to be such a positive one. From the people and their friendliness, professionalism, knowledge and advice, to the beautiful superior finished product. It is by far one of the best and easiest decisions we have made to add value, function and beauty to our home. Thank you again to all the team!

Brenda and Vince Nola

We are pleased we chose the fabric roofing as it is cool to sit under and has not affected light filtration to our lounge. We are thrilled with the end result, and are using the deck even now, being May.

Lois and Alf Sharp

A quality product and service from beginning to end - thank you.

Derek and Sue Ranger

The canopy and curtains have been the icing on the cake for our deck. Thank you so much for all your wonderful help.

Lil and Matt Newbold

I was initially a bit unsure about how the canopy would look, but the end result has blown me away. We hardly used our deck before and now we use it a lot more. It has made entertaining so much easier, no more worrying about whether it will rain, now we can entertain outside in all weather. Thanks so much to the team at Fresco Shades.

Sarah and Paul Conner

We are thrilled with the end result. We are already getting good responses from family and friends. Great service all round, from the initial contact to completion.

Rob and Cecelia Murray

I would recommend a Fresco Shades canopy to anyone wanting to keep the rain and also the hot sun off their deck. The construction is excellent, in fact it is just perfect. The installers and salesman were great to deal with. Thank you Fresco Shades.

Steve and Julian have just put up the plastic drop, which now completes our Fresco shade, and I am thrilled with the finished look. We have been very impressed with the quality of the product, the expert advice given by Russell at the outset, and the excellent standard of workmanship by your installation team. Thank you!

Helen and Malcolm Page

Earlier in the year you made shades for me to go over 2 balconies. The reason for purchasing the shades was that my house was leaking with every rain. The shades were not guaranteed to be water tight, but I have not had one drop into my house since they were constructed. I am very grateful for the marvelous workpersonship, and I enjoy my 2 new rooms every day. Thank you!

Diane Ramsay

We are thrilled with our fresco shade! Way exceeds our expectations. It looks fabulous and makes our outdoor living area so much more useable! We found all dealings with staff to be effortless. They were all polite, professional helpful and friendly to deal with. You couldn't ask for more! Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
