We’ve just finished installing this lovely Simplicity 6 Garden Veranda Canopy for Mr & Mrs D in Abbots Langley, Hertfordshire, which incorporates a 6mm toughened self-cleaning glass roof panel, with aluminium frame and posts, finished in white, guttering and downpipes and comes complete with integrated Lighting across the back.
Well, we have been enjoying our veranda for nearly three months now and it has fully lived up to our expectations.
Our aim was to enhance the possibilities for sitting and eating outside and to be able to leave our garden furniture outside without having to worry about rain!
From this perspective, it has been a great success.
We can just go outside to enjoy a meal or a coffee – or just relaxation – without having to move furniture and ‘set things up’. The result is that we are enjoying the outside much more – even for a BBQ party for our younger son’s birthday when it was raining (and rather cold) but we had a great time under the canopy anyway!
We are also really glad that we started the search for a veranda in the autumn and that it was possible to have the installation in February – we have fully benefitted from having the veranda right through spring.
We are certainly happy that we chose Alfresco Living Hertfordshire. We had looked at three potential suppliers before making our final choice. We decided that the clean simple lines suited our tastes and we also thought the Alfresco product offered a high-quality specification at what we considered to be a reasonable price.
The brochure was well laid out and accurate.
The sales approach was simple and, we thought, honest; we were shown the product, discussed the options and were given a price.
There was no pressure selling and no ‘order today for extra discount’ which we frankly hate. We had plenty of time to consider the offer and ask questions, make a couple of adjustments to the design and end up with a solution we were completely happy with. The process of design and detailed site survey was very thorough and we knew exactly what was going to happen and when.
The installation day went very well. The components had arrived the day before and the whole team seemed to have a clear plan – and worked hard – so that the installation was finished by mid-afternoon and everything was clean and tidy when they left.
So, all in all, we are very happy with our purchase and it has been admired by all our visitors so far.
Well done Alfresco!
