Shade Design Process
When you work directly with us or an SRP Certified Partner, you can rest assured that the shade design process is as easy as 1-2-3! It's our job to understand your needs, analyze various options, and design the best shade solution for you.
STEP 1: Interview and Site Consultation
We start by visiting your space or reviewing a site plan and conducting a free site consultation. We'll ask critical questions that will help make your shade project a success and ensure it meets your vision. Important factors about your space will be taken into consideration, as well as preferred fabric and size. Examples include:
- Project location
- Direction of sun
- Type of structure (shade sail, framed, cantilever, etc)
- How the shade will be used
- Surrounding environment
- Shade color
- Appropriate height to accommodate what's underneath
- Column style preference
STEP 2: Site Plan and Quote Proposal
Keeping in mind several factors important to you, we create a site plan drawn to scale along with a quote of itemized prices for product cost, engineering, freight, and shade installation.
STEP 3: Project Agreement
When you're ready to move forward with the project, our project agreement outlines who is responsible for each aspect of a shade project.
