Repairs vs Replacement

Shade cloth is a fabric that is specifically designed to withstand the elements. It is a thick, durable fabric that can withstand wind, rain and storms. However, it is not invincible, and it does have a limited lifespan. Over time, it will fade. Shade cloth in public spaces such as car parks, playgrounds and pools is also often the victim of vandalism.

The extent of the damage will determine whether we repair the shade cloth or replace it completely. We can usually re-stich a shade cloth once but if its already been re-stitched before then we may recommend replacing it. If you have noticed a small hole or tear in your shade cloth, we recommend getting it repaired as quickly as possible because if the damage becomes worse, you may have to look at having the whole shade cloth replaced.

The Process

We will send one of our experienced team members to your property to assess the damage, discuss your options and provide you with a quote for repairs and/or replacement. If the damage has been caused by a storm or wild weather, it may be covered by your insurance in which case we are happy to provide you with the quote and any additional information you require to submit your claim.

If you are happy with the quote then we will book in a suitable time for the repair to be completed.

Sunshine Coast Patio and Carport Installation

Sunshine Coast patio and carport installation specialists, Supershades, build high-quality shade solutions for residential and commercial usage. We utilise proven high-quality materials in our designs and our professional team work with you closely to find a carport shade solution that suits your tastes and budget.

To see some of our previous carport and patio installations, please view our projects gallery.

Waterproof Carport and Patio Installations:

Our patios and carports use high-quality materials available in just about any colour you desire to suit your décor, sloped downwards towards the best draining area to prevent flooding. By opting for a vinyl, you’ll save yourself money over a steel roof, without sacrificing waterproofing capabilities. Only the highest quality anti-corrosive components are used to maximise durability, and the cloth we use is designed to hold up to large winds.

We install both freestanding and attached carports, and if you’re unsure what type would be best suited to you, we’d be happy to provide you with some advice when we come around for a quote.

Carport Awnings and Side Waterproofing:

Whether you’re after some waterproofing for your existing carport or would like it optioned into your new carport built by us, we’ve got you covered with amazing fixed and adjustable awning solutions to keep your car and other possessions safe from heavy rain and storms. We can install these awnings on the exposed sides of your freestanding or attached carport in either standard water-resistant shadecloth or vinyl, though we always recommend opting for vinyl – standard water-resistant shadecloth will hold up in light rain, but won’t protect you in harsh rain or storm conditions.

Sunshine Coast Awning Installation

Supershades are the Sunshine Coast awning installation specialists, providing high-quality structural awnings for both residential and commercial purposes. Our products are all manufactured using high-quality parts and materials, and our professional team assemble and install the awnings on your property at a time that suits you. To see some past structural awning installations we have completed, please view our projects gallery.

Structural Awning Installations

Structural awnings are large awnings that extend out from a vertical wall, providing a large area or shade or coverage. They are usually used in commercial applications such as outdoor seating areas in cafes and restaurants, but can also be used in residential areas to provide coverage over a patio, carport or external entertaining area.

We have several fabric options available for our awnings – high-quality shade cloth, vinyl and colorbond steel. The vinyl option is great for restaurants and cafes who’s main seating option is outside because it provides protection from heavier rainfall. Our high-quality option will protect your customers from light rain or a sprinkle, but if the rain becomes heavier they will need to relocate.

Our cloth also comes in hundreds of different colour options which allows us to match your new awning to the colour of your branding or the external colours of your building perfectly. All the posts are powder-coated and can usually be colour matched to your existing gutters or other fixtures.

Structural vs Folding Arm Awnings

The main difference between structural and folding arm awnings is that the folding arms option are retractable. This gives them the flexibility to be opened and closed as required and they can also be retracted during heavy winds or bad weather to reduce damage.

Structural awnings on the other hand are designed to be a more permanent fixture are generally used as an alternative to shade sails on balconies, decks and other floating external areas.

If you are uncertain which option will suit your application the best, speak to Supershades today – our experienced team are more than happy to share their professional opinion and advice with you.

Our own team are responsible for assembling and installing the awnings – we don’t use sub-contractors.

You will have several options to choose from when having a folding arm awning installed on your Sunshine Coast property, including standard shadecloth material or waterproof material as well as whether you want your new retractable awning to be manually operated or motor operated with sensors and a remote.

For more information about our range of Sunshine Coast awnings or to organise an installation quote, please get in touch with the team at Supershades on 07 5476 5764.

Folding-Arm Awnings vs Shade Sails

Folding-arm awnings and shade sails are made using similar materials but vary in their pricing as well as their application. Shade sails are great for larger areas that need to be covered because they become more cost-effective in larger quantities.

Folding-arm awnings on the other hand, are retractable which means that you can fold them in during extreme weather, reducing the risk of damage. They also allow you to control when you want the sunlight to shine through versus when you want to block it out.

In regards to application, shade sails are more flexible and can be installed in just about any external area – we can adjust the height and angle of the poles to suit your specific requirements. Awnings on the other hand, require a solid and sturdy vertical wall to be attached to.

If you are uncertain which option is the most suitable for your application as well as budget then get in touch to organise a free consultation and quote. We will discuss all the different options with you and provide you with professional advice to help you make your decision.

Sunshine Coast Shade Umbrella Installation

We are a family-owned business that has been providing high-quality products to Sunshine Coast residents and business owners for over 20 years, and we have a strong reputation for pairing great customer service with professional and reliable workmanship. We do all the work ourselves, from the measure and quote, through to ordering and assembling all the parts and then the final installation – we don’t use sub-contractors and we don’t use cheap or unreliable parts and materials.

Visit our gallery to see some examples of past shade umbrellas that we have installed or get in touch on 07 5476 5764 to organise a quote.

Shade Umbrella Options

Our shade umbrellas can be installed with side-posts or centre-posts. Side-posts are slightly more expensive as they require more engineering to properly balance the weight of the umbrella. They also need to be installed in stable ground whereas a centre posted umbrella can be installed on floating decks.

If you live in an area prone to strong winds, we recommend using centre posts grounded in stable/solid ground – when they are installed in this manner they are capable of withstanding winds up to 200km. Side-posted umbrellas are rated for 60kpm winds.

In addition to choosing where the posts go, you’ll also be able to select from water resistant or waterproof fabrics as well as from hundreds of different colour options to suit any décor.

Shade Umbrellas vs Shade Sails

While our shade sails and umbrellas are both high-quality products, there are some key differences between these products that make them more suitable for different applications.

Shade umbrellas have the advantage of being collapsible in the majority of times, as well as portable in some cases, whereas a shade sail will be a permanent fixture once it is installed. Shade sails are the more cost-effective option if the area is quite large, while shade umbrellas are considered by many to be a more aesthetically pleasing option for smaller areas.

Still not sure? Supershades have been working in the industry for over 20 years and are more than happy to share their industry knowledge with you and advise you on the best option for your circumstance and application. We can also provide you with a quote for both options so that you can compare the price difference when making your decision.

Check out our gallery to see some examples of past shade sails that we have installed on both residential and commercial properties.

One of the major benefits of shade sails is that the bigger they get, the more cost-effective they become, making them a great option for larger areas. If you have a small area that you want to have covered, you may wish to consider our shade umbrellas or awnings.

Shade Sail Options

We have a huge range of options to choose from for your shade sails, from the material (Shadecloth or Vinyl) through to the colour of the fabric and posts. We can configure the posts in any way you want, with posts at different heights or angles to make the shade sail 3 dimensional or cast shade in particular spots.

Some of the different options you will have include

Shadecloth Fabric: We have a water resistant or a waterproof option available. The water-resistant shadecloth is a high-quality thick material with small gaps and it will protect you from UV rays as well as light rain. The waterproof option is more expensive but will protect you during heavier rain, making it ideal for outdoor patios and entertaining areas.

Post Colour: Our posts are cut to size and then powdercoated (if required) in the colour of your choice. We can usually match it to the colour of your pool fencing or downpipes etc.

Fabric Colour: We have hundreds of different shades to select from, so matching the colour of your sails to other elements of your home will not be an issue. We will bring the range of colours with us when we have our initial consultation.

The Process

If you are interested in having a shade sail installed and want to receive a quote then the process is simple. Start by getting in touch with us to book an initial consultation; we’ll send someone to take measurements and discuss the different colour and fabric options. Following the consultation we’ll provide you with a quote, and if you are happy with the quote we’ll place your order and start assembling the required materials. Once the posts are powdercoated and the fabric is cut to size, we’ll book in an installation date with you. The whole process usually takes 2-6 weeks depending on the size and whether there are any special requirements.
