Feedback Offered By Our Clients



"Six years ago we purchased a 6.8 metre cantilevered umbrella from Weather Wise Shade Systems following a lot of research into solutions to meet our shelter needs in our outdoor living area. The umbrella has exceeded our expectations and is an extremely well engineered and constructed product. I have always found Weather Wise Shade Systems very helpful and easy to deal with and would highly recommend this umbrella."

"I was looking at the seemingly impossible in shade system solutions...something that was practical, robust, made of the highest quality materials, covered all of the areas required, came in a stylish range of colours...and above all, was an artist statement that complimented the lines of my house.  The Weather Wise team have certainly not only met, but also have exceeded, my expectations...and I couldn't be more delighted!"
- Gary Nicol, Christchurch


"Thanks team and crew for the speedy assembly of our shade sail. Jenny is rapt. Of course as the sun comes it'll be so worthwhile.  I have no hesitation in recommending Weather Wise to anyone who interested and that will include your ability in digging holes in rock hard ground."

"I first dealt with Weather Wise Shade Systems in 2009 when we created a new food outlet and adjacent outdoor seating area. We required a solid yet visually appealing umbrella that provided adequate shade for customers while still being able to withstand the elements and didn't need to be taken down every day! Weather Wise was recommended to me by another contact and the product they offered seemed to tick all the boxes. Since our first order of five umbrellas in 2009 we have placed a further three orders. We now have three different styles of Weather Wise umbrellas in four separate locations at Rainbow's End.
I have always found Hamish, Paula and the rest of the team very professional in their approach, understanding of our requirements and helpful with their advice. They have been a pleasure to deal with. Our experiences with Weather Wise in terms of supplying a quality product, meeting our dealines and demonstration excellent service have been nothing but positive.

“Hamish and Lisa at Weather Wise Shade Systems Ltd have been great to deal with. Their service, from initial advice and options, installation and follow-up of our cantilevered sun umbrellas has been very professional and focused. We are very impressed with the product. The design of the umbrellas offers excellent strength and load bearing, functionality in how they can be utilized, as well as versatility in being able to swivel the arc of the umbrella.”

“Thank you for the wonderful shade sails you installed for us. We have been impressed with the quality of the fabric in the sails and in the strong construction of the framework. When winter rolls around we need all the sun we can get, it’s been great to have you store them safely out of our way and ready for next summer.”
- Val Stevens, Manager, Treasure Trove Kindergarten

“The best thing about the umbrellas is that you can put them up and forget about them. They retain their good looks, don’t fade or age, and are very strong.”
- Geoff Cain, Bursar, Cathedral Grammar School
