Onsite meeting and consultation

Here at Nova Shades we pride ourselves on thoughtful planning and outstanding design. Our shade technicians will work with you to develop the shade design that you require, and install a shade unit that is perfectly suited to your needs.

We offer you years of experience in designing the right structure for your location, with clear communication every step of the way. The entire process from consultation right through to the installation and after sales service is closely monitored to ensure you are 100% satisfied with the end result.

Concept Development

As every location is unique and has different requirements, one of our Shade Technicians will visit your site and discuss the options that are available to you. At this point, we will discuss what sort of structure will best suit your needs, including sizes, shapes, colours, timeframes and budgets. A formal quote will be prepared, with drawings and examples of our work.

During this consultation, it’s also a good time to discuss your requirements on timing. For instance, if you would like your shade structure to be installed before summer, it’s a good idea to plan early and ensure your structure is sorted during the winter months. Often Council permits are required if the structure is over a certain size or height. If this is the case, we can arrange for the permit to be obtained from the appropriate Council for you. This can all be discussed at the initial consultation.

Designing the layout and configuration of a shade structure is a very important component in achieving the desired style and functionality required. As such, our designers and engineers work closely together from the outset of every project to achieve efficiencies and optimise the design. As well as concept drawings, we’ll also provide you with producers’ statements from a certified engineer, which is included in the cost of your project.

Efficient Onsite Installation

Along with the functional design, our technicians will ensure that every structure is perfectly tensioned and secured. It is important to note that all fittings we use are stainless steel, and the tensioning wires are either stainless steel or fully galvanised for continuous maintenance-free protection. The posts or framework structures are designed to be stable in high wind conditions and are made from a high-tensile steel tube that can be powder coated to suit your colour scheme.

All of our installers are site safe trained and have years of experience in completing our shade projects. We will keep you informed throughout the whole process. The end result will be a shade unit that meets all your expectations and providing the desired shade requirements.
