8 Wednesday May 16 2018 Latest Christchurch news at SELWYN TIMES You bring the dream, we’ll bring the How To. ADVERTORIAL New pupils •If your child has started school recently, send their picture to emily. With Canterbury experiencing a hot summer after the wettest winter on record, our weather has certainly been extreme. However, brave Cantabrians, with verandas and adjustable louvres from Stratco on our side, we can take back control of our unpredictable elements. Steve Cain, Outdoor Product Specialist at Stratco, is passionate about their verandas and electronic louvre systems “they add great value to a home, families get so much more use from their outdoors, and the real estate market recognises that value as well”. Steve says adding an adjustable louvre system allows you to control exactly how much sunlight and breeze in, and protect from rain as well. Custom made to suit your requirements and powder coated to any colour, the louvre comes standard with an electronic remote control as well as a rain sensor which gives you huge flexibility on how to use the system. The verandas are Stratco’s own unique leading edge design and componentry. Steve is pleased to be able to offer a bespoke veranda at the same price as a standard product, because Stratco has the design tools that enable the veranda to be custom-designed to your size, layout, and attachment requirements. The process is simple: Steve will talk through the possibilities with you and then measure and quote, which is free with no obligation. Stratco then designs, manufactures, and installs the verandas and louvres themselves. It’s a one-stop-shop, with all the project management and heavy lifting taken care of, leaving you hands free to thumb your nose at our climate chaos. For a quote phone Steve Cain on 021 374 420.
