Welcome to Light 'n' Shade
Specialised outdoor roofs
Light`n`Shade is the outdoor roofing brand name for Gilkicker`s range of outdoor/external roofing products and services. We specialise in making, supplying and installing outdoor roofs for external spaces such as terraces, decks, patios, alfresco dining areas, beer gardens, barbecue areas, hot tubs outdoor kitchens or for any other type of activity where the adaptability of flexible, controllable, and adjustable roofs is the ideal solution for you.
To make the right roof and structure we use our experience, knowledge and a wide variety of skills and techniques to meet the needs that you want to obtain from your external covered space.
To help you learn more about outdoor roofing we list a number of tips, hints and advice gleaned from our experience over the years of working in the area of external roofing. These tips and hints are a result of advising customers and overcoming obstacles on some of the hundreds of external roof projects that we have completed. We cover such topics as maximising shading, roof orientation, the type of light (diffuse or direct) coming through an external roof, drainage, roof pitch, ventilation, types of structure, coping with adjoining building features such as chimney breasts or bay windows and many other important aspects of a successful outdoor roofing project.
This system has enhanced our patio area, and looks good too. The cost, including the frame, is less than we were quoted for a glass canopy. We would certainly recommend it to our friends and family. Mr and Mrs D, Charfield Gloucester
