Technically, our country enjoys a temperate maritime climate, but quite often climate doesn’t get the memo and it’s just a little ‘too’ something to get the most from your outdoor living space: a little too hot, a little too windy or a little too wet.
The team at Stratco can provide you with the full range of outdoor shelter solutions, bespoke to your home, garden and lifestyle. “The right solution can really extend the amount of time you spend outdoors within the warmer seasons, and also get you out there for more months of the year,” says General Manager David Allingham.
Stratco’s large range includes everything from fencing for wind breaks, fixed verandas, sunroofs, fully electronic louvres, carports, pergolas, garden and wood sheds. They’re engineered to withstand the wind conditions of the area, and the streamlined designs complement any style of home and garden. Stratco Louvre or Fixed Veranda systems are custom built to your size and layout to suit your needs – units can be attached to your house or freestanding.
Louvre systems come standard with a remote control and rain sensors to give you complete control over the weather. Fixed verandas include sheeted roofing to provide strength for wind and snow loading, and add polycarbonate sheets to allow protected light to come through. Both systems create comfortable living spaces in our otherwise harsh environment.
Outdoor Product Specialist Steve Cain says, “it works really well when people spend some time over the summer break considering how they would like to make the most of their outdoor spaces”. “In the New Year, we can complete installation within six weeks of the order, so their outdoor time for summer 2018/19 could be extended well into autumn.”
The process is simple and stress free: Steve can talk you through the full range of solutions bespoke to you in size and colours. Once you’ve made some choices, the next step is the free measure and quote. The quote is fully detailed and all-inclusive for plumbing and electrical. “There won’t be any hidden costs,” Steve says.
On accepting the quote you’ll receive a fully dimensioned plan. Peace of mind comes from knowing that the team at Stratco offers project management that includes all of the subtrades and, of course, quality control. There is a great range of images on the website at www.stratco.co.nz, the Hands Road showroom is open 8am to 5pm on weekdays and Steve carries a working model on his truck.
Not just a great looking and fully engineered solution to suit demanding Australasian conditions, all Stratco products come with a full warranty. “We stand by our products. The Stratco brand is focused on quality and service and we are justly proud of what we do,” Dave says.
