"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."

"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."
