"Able Canopies installed three wet weather shelters/canopies at our Nursery School in Willesden many years ago, and we were very impressed with their workmanship and professionalism at that time, so when the need arose for a canopy at the Main Entrance of our other Nursery School in Stonebridge, they were the first company I approached for a quote. From the first meeting, Able impressed both myself and our Architect with their knowledge of working in Schools, and the need to work around the needs of our children and parents. As a Capital Project, we needed to source at least three quotes from various companies, and choose the most competitive, that also met the specification, and could complete the project within a tight timeframe. Able Canopies were successful in this, largely due to the fact that they visited site at least twice prior to submitting their quote, took very careful measurements of the area, and produced detailed calculations and drawings for the Planning Dept. Once on site, the installers themselves were professional, friendly, and extremely tidy, taking care to ensure that the work area was suitable for Premises Staff to enter and leave the building safely. We are absolutely delighted with our new canopy - it has been done so carefully, that it looks like it is part of the original building - our Nursery in Stonebridge is an iconic building, that has won various awards, including the RlBA award for architecture, so the canopy installed had to add to the overall look of the building, and not 'stick out like a sore thumb'. I would recommend Able Canopies to any school or business, and while they will not necessarily provide the cheapest quote, they will definitely provide an end product that exceeds your expectations. Thank you!"
Fawood Childrens Centre - Stonebridge, London - View Installation "Communication has been good throughout the construction. Work has all been kept to time and all school site and equipment has been respected throughout. Team has been flexible when working around our children and their needs.

Saint Marys Church of England Primary School - Birmingham, West Midlands - View Installation "Everything about Able is so professional but also so personal. From the first contact to them by email to the installation was so easy - absolutely no hassle. Chantelle was always very approachable and helpful. Robin did a wonderful job by not only measuring but also drawing out the dimensions with chalk which made it much more visual. The fitters Steven and Shane made such a good job. Our block paving was removed and replaced with less mess. The site was cleaned thoroughly we are really impressed. Thank you so much."
Wanborough Village Hall - Swindon, Wiltshire - View Installation "We wanted a canopy installed to improve access to the outside for our Reception and Key Stage 1 pupils. They are supposed to be able to play outside often and that area is very exposed, as well as battered by North Cornish rain. Thanks to our new covered outdoor learning area, our children have been enjoying a wealth of activities such as role play, (currently a café), learning activities such as phonics and number work, free play, sand and water and much more.
The canopy has changed the whole view of the building and brought it into the 21st Century (itis on the oldest part of the school). It looks modern and welcoming. The service was excellent - it was installed during school time but with minimal disruption and no mess."

The pre-school staff took the children out to watch some of the work and your staff were very patient with the children and the staff.

"We had 2 x 4m x 4m Codale structures installed in April 2011 and have now had over four years use from them. They are still as good as new. They have been a great success and we are now going to add a further structure to the existing two units and will be turning it into a catering area for society days, barbecues and private parties."

It looks wonderful and very fit for purpose. We would have no hesitation in using your company again in the future. Thank you and well done."
"We started our project of having a new shelter installed at our Guiding Centre back in 2010. Since our initial enquiry Able Canopies have stuck with us all the way. We have had a few ups and downs along the way (with regards to needing planning, raising funds and having a tree nearby which is protected etc.), and Able Canopies have always been there to answer our enquiries. There were moments when we thought we would never be able to have our shelter.
Able Canopies always kept in touch with us to see how we were getting on with the project, and were not once pushy in any way. We really would like to thank Paul Townsend and his team in particular. They were always at the end of the telephone, were really understanding, motivating us to keep going.
We now have our dream shelter which is better looking than we ever thought, is fit for purpose and fits in really well with the surrounding environment. We have had lots of positive comments about it and we are really proud of it.
A Huge Thank-you to Able Canopies for our amazing new shelter for mobility scooters and bicycles, and for being such a wonderful team."
"Since we purchased the two 5m x 5m canopies with walls, heating and lighting, it has made a massive difference to our trade and profit. We are only a small pub so it has doubled the size of the area we can serve food and drinks. We can now cater for private parties, barbecues and for big sporting occasions."
The Victoria Arms, Binfield (product installed Codale Conic)
"Fantastic product, great service. Installers were a credit to your company. The customer service from Able Canopies was excellent. They were very helpful and efficient. We were very happy with how quickly we had the canopies installed.
We are an ever growing school and the new canopy provides us with a space for outdoor learning and play, come rain or shine! The parents are delighted to have a dry area to wait for their children at the end of the day if the weather is unsettled! Overall, the canopies are an excellent addition to the school."
"We are absolutely delighted with our new canopy! The team at Able have worked really hard (in the rain and dark!) to achieve the job in a tight deadline and have entertained our children in the process! Many thanks to Simon, Dale and Kevin."
"In May 2007 we had a 6m x 6m Codale canopy installed. It has been a great asset to the pub for outdoor eating and drinking. In early 2015 we installed glazing with sliding doors and added heating and lighting. It has proved to be very successful. In July this year we are planning to add a further 6m x 6m structure which will give us an outdoor restaurant area for 60-70 diners."
Ring O’ Bells – The Novello, Maidenhead (product installed Codale Conic)
"We are thrilled with our new canopy with the front and side fills. The finished product looks far better than we thought it would. Good Quality! The installers were very professional, thoughtful and cheerful. Pleasure to do business with your company. Thank you. "
