How much will it cost for your team to install my canopy?

The price varies dependant upon location, the size of the structure to be installed and any anticipated complications. For a fitting estimate please contact us with details of your location and the area the canopy is to be fitted. It is also very helpful if you could email us photos of the area so we can accurately assess the projects requirements e.g if we need to relay block paving this can increase the time involved and associated costs.

Do you offer a site survey service for canopies?

We can provide site surveys if necessary for Lean To canopies which we are installing in our local area. We only do so once a price has been agreed in principle. There is a £100 survey fee which is refundable against the cost of your canopy installation should you go ahead.
