Sunshine Coast Shade Umbrella Installation

Supershades specialise in Sunshine Coast shade umbrella installation services. 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.

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.
