Shade Solutions - Our Project Steps

Request a Quote

You can call us in the office to chat about your options 1300 668 187 - we can generally be able to give you some advice on the most appropriate solution. 

Alternatively, you can send us your information via our website Request a Quote form and we will get back to you to discuss your requirements. This option can be handy after hours or on the weekend when we are not in the office.

For certain products it may be possible for us to give an indicative estimate over the phone. Sometimes we ask that you send through photos of the area to give us an idea about access and any issues for installation.

From that point we usually arrange a suitable time to come and discuss the project with you.  We will set a time and date and pride ourselves on being reliable and punctual.

If you have any questions you can call us or use the links on the quote to get in touch.

We encourage communication throughout the process and want to make sure you are satisfied with the level of information you have about the products and service you will be receiving.

We offer custom products and request a 50% deposit prior to the ordering of the product. Once the deposit is received we will progress the project and ensure that the materials and product are ordered.

"Awning solves our problem with direct sunlight and difficulty with putting up any other kind of shade. Service was extremely good. Very prompt response, helpful advice and friendly approach. It was refreshing to deal with a supplier who responded straight away to our request and kept us regularly updated on progress."

Alice & Mark 

Folding Arm Awning

"After a number of alternative providers failed to attend scheduled quotation appointments we contact Tim at 4.00pm. Tim was immediately proactive and set an appointment at our house at 8.30 the next day. In the meantime, Tim mailed photographs to give us an indication of his work. True to his word, Tim attended and provided us a quote on the spot. Later that day we accepted and agreed on an installation date. The product was delivered and installed on the agreed date. We are very happy with Tim's service and advice, the product itself and the final result. We would recommend East Coast Shade Design, Thanks."

New Lambton

"The sail that we had installed is excellent in both workmanship and quality. It is better than we imagined and provides us with our desired requirement of privacy and shade. The service provided by Tim is exceptional. His expertise and attention to detail was invaluable enabling us to work together to achieve the desired result even though the area to be covered was unusual and complicated in design. Tim understood the importance of getting our sail exactly right and we are delighted with the result. We would have no hesitation in recommending East Coast Shade Design to anyone considering installing a shade sail. Tim kept us informed from beginning to end of the project."
