Canopies and Awnings
Kiwis love outdoor living, it’s part of who we are. Your Fresco Canopy will become your favourite room, to be enjoyed anytime of the day regardless of the weather, all year round!
Fresco Shades canopies and awnings are designed to add space, style and value to your home.
Proudly New Zealand owned and operated, our award winning canopies are totally customised to meet your needs.
Curtains and Outdoor Blinds
Turn your outdoor space into an outdoor room! Fresco Shades can supply a range of outdoor screens so you can use your area regardless of the weather – even BBQ all year round.
Our new popular Glidetrak system offers the latest in outdoor blinds. The ease of operation allows the screen to be raised or lowered very quickly and easily, and to whatever height you require. This allows for maximum ventilation on hot summer days, and maximum shelter from wind and rain.
Customise your outdoor space with Fresco Shades louvers, doors, roll up curtains and mesh screens. These can be fitted to your Fresco Canopy or existing structure.

Thank you!"− Helen and Malcolm Page
"Earlier in the year you made shades for me to go over 2 balconies. The reason for purchasing the shades was that my house was leaking with every rain. The shades were not guaranteed to be water tight, but I have not had one drop into my house since they were constructed. I am very grateful for the marvelous workpersonship, and I enjoy my 2 new rooms every day. Thank you!"− Diane Ramsay
"We are thrilled with our fresco shade! Way exceeds our expectations. It looks fabulous and makes our outdoor living area so much more useable! We found all dealings with staff to be effortless. They were all polite, professional helpful and friendly to deal with. You couldn't ask for more! Thanks so much and keep up the good work!"− Tim and Rose Antonio
