“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Total Shade on more than one occasion and can tell you they go above and beyond for the services they provide to hit strict deadlines and work in very difficult site conditions.

“It has been great working with Jeff and his team. Logan Simpson had an intricate vision of the entry trellis steel shade structure for the Saint Vincent DePaul Urban Farm. Total Shade nailed it with quickly responding to construction document coordination and costing, then completed the structure through installation.  It looks amazing!”

“We worked with Total Shade to design, fabricate, and install a 2,600-sf shade canopy for an outdoor beer garden. Total Shade’s diverse team exhibited professionalism and enthusiasm while executing our vision as the design-builder, delivering the shade canopy on budget and within our expedited schedule to one of the best outdoor patio spaces in Phoenix.”

“Total Shade embraced and delivered on the project vision of  The Cloud at Kiwanis Park. They were able to fabricate a complex structure with integrated water components using a collaborative team approach.”

Total Shade was selected early in the design development phase of the project because of their experience and cost effective approach.  This project incorporated a very complicated design that was nested into an existing, fully operational park.  Total Shade was up to the task and provided a unique, fun shade structure that incorporates key water features, lighting, and sound.  In particular, Total Shade was instrumental in coordinating the routing of piping, lighting mounts, speaker locations, and key water features.  Consequently, the shade structure not only provides shade and shelter, but a fun, interactive environment unlike any other shade structure in the area.  Their expertise, quality, and enthusiasm ensure I will partner with them for future shade structures projects.

“I have worked with Total Shade LLC on a rather large multi-canopy project at one of our Divisional Headquarters.  As a Senior Project Manager, Communication, Safety and Quality are the key components to any successful project and Total Shade delivered on all levels.  Daily communications on arrivals, completion of work and follow up on my questions were all done professionally and responded in a timely manner.  The optics of this large project at our Divisional Headquarters were huge as everyone from the multiple Vice Presidents down to the Site Manufacturing team all watched each and every day the progress of this high profile project.  Communication from the top of their management team down to their field superintendents were quick, honest and total transparent.  As each Canopy was raised, utmost attention to quality and safety was given by all crew members.  Barriers were placed and moved daily as work progressed, ensuring a safe environment for them and our site folks-Our Culture of Safety was respected by Total Shade. Total Shade is a winner: providing good prices, quality work and outstanding attention to Safety.  Great job all around!

We provided Total Shade with conceptual drawings for shade structures the design team envisioned for our project.  Jeff and his team provided detailed drawings that showed what would be needed to achieve the design teams vision.  Total Shade provided final drawings that addressed our aesthetics concerns, safety concerns, quality and budget concerns as well.  Total Shade brought added value by using its vast experience and knowledge to help resolve all our concerns.  Great Job Jeff!

I needed a shade structure designed, permitted and installed for a project in Wickenburg, AZ and Total Shade kept me in the loop throughout the design, permitting and construction stages. Total Shade provided superior service and excellent workmanship throughout the process. They got the design right the first time, translating my needs and verbal description into a solid design and excellent final product.  I would recommend Total Shade to any of my clients, they offer excellent customer service and provide high quality products at a reasonable price.
