Glass Veranda in Salisbury

Mrs C. in Salisbury got in touch wanting to upgrade her patio awning to a glass veranda, like her neighbours across the road, but wishing to keep the use of her existing awning too.

Our lady customer in Salisbury had been happy with her sun awning for several years, it had served her well, but it fell short come less clement weather and it didn’t give the permanent cover Mrs. C. now desired. When one of her neighbours benefited from installing a glass veranda Mrs C. realised the way forward and how a veranda could be a better option – awnings are great but can have their limitations during the four seasons of our weather.

We visited her lovely home, and what a fantastic location, her patio enjoyed a close view of the magnificent Salisbury cathedral spire standing 123 meters tall (404 feet) it dominating the landscape since construction in the 14th century. Mrs C. had a beautiful little garden which she enjoyed very much. Green was to be the theme following on from her awning fabric colour and so our Forest Green framework was chosen for the veranda.

One key factor was that Mrs C. wanted to keep her patio awning too, in order not to be wasteful, and in respect of the several years of fine service it had payed. And so our installers, Paul and Luke, free of charge reinstalled the customer’s awning higher up over the glass veranda, to give shade and sun protection whenever required. You can see the awning just visible in the photo above, above the glass. Paul & Luke then also gave her neighbours veranda a full wash and clean in way of a thank you  – such good guys. Thanks.

Turning Corners, Turning Heads

Making an impact around the country our well equipped fitting vans now vividly promote modern outdoor living – with impressive graphic signage showcasing a full garden veranda across the sides.

Displaying a huge Glass Veranda left and right, and listing our Garden Glass Rooms at the rear, vinyl wrapping now follows every contour of our fitting vehicles – indeed customers could be forgiven for thinking that their veranda has arrived fully built on the driveway! Signwriting can be good for business and shows commitment. According to statistics, a busy vehicle can be seen by as many as 3,000 people per hour, but equally it’s the message of professional dedication that signage puts across. In short, a “business does what it say’s on the van”.

I once had my house gutters and fascia’s replaced and was preoccupied from the start seeing contractors arrive in a garden fencing truck. Pulling up, I thought (or rather I hoped) that they’d found the wrong address. I’m not alone either, in a survey by a well known leasing firm, 59% of respondents said that seeing a professional identity on a vehicle gave them confidence in the quality of work to be done, increasing to 74% with younger customers.

At Elegant we wanted our professional roadside image to reflect dedication to the product and show our high quality installation work. Keep it simple, they say, customers want to see your Brand Name, Telephone and Website and we worked on two versions of a design that respects this simplicity while slipping “Outdoor Living” into the message. Finally, “www.elegant.mx” is simply a shorter url linking to this website here – making eyeballed contact as easy as possible.

We hope audiences enjoy our giant veranda graphic. For the bigger picture, get a quote… [Arrange a Quotation]
