Project Testimonies

Long Reef Golf Club

We had old storm damaged umbrellas on our outdoor terrace that provided shade but no weather resistance cover. The new weather resistance (Dining Structure) by Alfresco Shade has provided the perfect solution for providing shade and weather protection.

This has helped increase our ability to accommodate guests and helped us reach a record trade in March 2017. Franco, Paul, and the team were amazing to deal with.  Nothing was a problem. 10/10!

Miriam Archetti

Our 20 year old umbrella was looking dilapidated and needed a reskin. After the umbrella skin the landscape has a new lease of life, and so do its owners! (Umbrella reskin and new retractable awning).

Marayong South Public School

Our existing shade sail had torn, with the previous material not lasting and not UV protected. With our new Alfresco shade sail we now have a UV tolerant product. Its good quality and made with excellent workmanship.

The whole process of working with Alfresco was great!

Ravesis Hotel

Our old blinds had worn out and the remote control motors had stopped working from neglectful use from staff members. Happy with the installation. Happy with the end product (10 x zippy blinds). Happy with follow up service with Alfresco Shade.

The Living Room Café

Before our café had an open outdoor area. We now have a fully enclosed outdoor space.

Good service, nice job!

St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox College

From start to finish Alfresco Shade undertook their task diligently to supply our school with a complete refurb of one shade area and to erect a designed waterproof structure that met our needs perfectly!  The preparation phase was professionally undertaken by Alfresco and the coordination of both projects ran smoothly and to agreed to time-frame and costs!  Both structures are superb and totally meet the needs of our students and have indeed enhanced our school environment.

Lakeside The Entrance Shopping Centre

For a job of this magnitude, Alfresco Shade truly delivered.

All aspects, from design, engineering, and construction were conducted in a manner ‘second to none’.The works were delivered on time, within budget and with minimal disruption to our carpark and patrons

The shade sails have been a great asset to our shopping centre, and I would highly recommend Alfresco Shades to anyone looking to use this Company.

Koala Child Care Centre

Thank you for the chance to provide feedback to your current clients. At Koala we have developed an easy relationship with Alfresco Shade.

We recently contacted them about the removal of the shade cloth over winter, Franco told us he could remove, clean, store and put the shade cloth back up when we wanted on an ongoing cycle. This was wonderful as I could book it in for the year. A few weeks out before the shade needed to go back up Franco called me to work out a date to install. They are reliable and efficient with their work which is often hard to find these days. We also recently had some outdoor blinds installed to protect the children from the weather and they look amazing. We will definitely continue using Alfresco Shade and their wonderful service.

IMS Installations International

Alfresco Shade has turned our entertainment area into a unique shaded area that is only second to a fully commercial dining strip. Their umbrellas withstand the harsh Australian conditions that western Sydney dishes out on a daily basis. They have withstood, rain, hail, gusting winds and 48’ heat.

We have had our 3 large fixed umbrellas on our entertaining deck for over 10 years and they look as new as the day they were installed. Believe it or not they are self-cleaning every time it rains. We wouldn’t look ant further than Alfresco Shade for our next “cover up” project. Actually we have just recently purchased the 4m cantilever adjustable umbrella for our new pool area. So, we do put our money where our mouth is.

Thanks Alfresco for proving a sturdy Australian made product for the harsh Australian environment
