Design Process & Pricing
We believe in the best customer service in providing a premium and bespoke shade matched to your individual needs and requirements. We provide a full service including the design, manufacture and installation of your pergola frame and shade to your chosen specification. We can also retrofit our shade to your current pergola frame or outdoor structure.
We follow the same simple steps for every customer’s project to ensure you are informed and in control.
Concept & Initial Proposal
We start the process with a simple consultation over the phone to understand your needs, timescales and budget. Whether you are at the ideas and planning stage for your outside area, want to add a shade to your current pergola or need a full frame and shade solution we will provide you with an initial proposal and cost estimate.
Design & Order
At this stage, we will perform a site visit to confirm a pergola frame and shade can be installed in your desired location and to measure all required site dimensions. We will also explore the various pergola frame and shade material colours for your project. At the end of this stage, we will provide a detailed order form with your chosen specification, a timescale with a planned install date and a full cost breakdown. Once this is approved and a deposit is received, we will commence manufacturing your frame and shade.
Manufacture and Install
Every pergola frame and shade is designed and built in our Hampshire workshop to avoid onsite fabrication. We will keep you updated on progress to ensure we deliver and install your frame and shade on time, the final payment is required prior to delivery and installation.
The price of a Hampshire Shade and frame will always be more than off-the-shelf or mass-produced shades designed for self-assembly. It is individually designed for you and your lifestyle and hand-built in our workshop in Swanmore, Hampshire. The design and operation of the shade are unique in the UK and offer a full blue sky opening and truly waterproof closure matched with a modern hand-built pergola frame. The price depends on the size of the frame and shade as well as the chosen material, colours and can be designed for any individual size upto 6m x 6m or combined to operate as kissing canopies to cover larger areas.
We are always happy to discuss ideas to work within your budget and advise on design choices to save money. For example, some customers like to paint their own pergola frame after it is installed which can save several hundred pounds.
