* OFPANZ (Outdoor Fabric Products Association of NZ)
We were thrilled to win the 2017 Award for Excellence in the highly competitive under 50m2 category. This technically tricky canopy around an outdoor fire was a challenge, but the results were well worth the extra thought and effort.
2015 OFPANZ Award For Excellence – Awnings And Canopies (0-50sqm)
We are delighted to have won this award for the third year in a row for our Kiers canopy. This was a unique canopy that was installed around a chimney which required a unique design.

2014 OFPANZ Award For Excellence – Awnings And Canopies
Peacock Sky is a vineyard/restaurant on Waiheke Island that has a fast growing reputation and big increases in the numbers of customers visiting. The site (which is on the top of a hill) has a great view, and outside dining areas to make the most of this, but it can be quite exposed to the wind/rain.
Winner – 2013 OFPANZ Excellence Award – Awnings And Canopies & IFAI- Outstanding Achievement Award – Residential Awnings And Canopies
This home is situated on a bush clad section with very little outdoor living space. The owners approached us as they had decided to re-build and extend their upstairs deck, and wanted to cover part of it to maximise its usability.
2013 OFPANZ Award For Excellence – Blinds And Screens
The brief was to create a totally enclosed outdoor room where the family can entertain outside, BBQ and have an area for drying their clothes. They also wanted more space for their small children to use, especially on wet days, hence the need to screen off the sides.

Thanks everyone for our Fresco Shade, we are thrilled with it, it looks fantastic. The whole process was stress free and indeed a pleasure, from the time Russell came out right through to installation by Steve and Julian. I have and will continue to recommend your product and service to all.Chris and Pete Henry
We are glad we went with you in the end. We did some serious research and compared the players in the market. Even though there were cheaper options around, the design, the quality of the fabric, and your professionalism convinced us in the end. Thank you very much.Girard de Soucanton
We have found our whole ' fresco shades experience' to be such a positive one. From the people and their friendliness, professionalism, knowledge and advice, to the beautiful superior finished product. It is by far one of the best and easiest decisions we have made to add value, function and beauty to our home. Thank you again to all the team!Brenda and Vince Nola
We are pleased we chose the fabric roofing as it is cool to sit under and has not affected light filtration to our lounge. We are thrilled with the end result, and are using the deck even now, being May.Lois and Alf Sharp

The canopy and curtains have been the icing on the cake for our deck. Thank you so much for all your wonderful help.Lil and Matt Newbold
I was initially a bit unsure about how the canopy would look, but the end result has blown me away. We hardly used our deck before and now we use it a lot more. It has made entertaining so much easier, no more worrying about whether it will rain, now we can entertain outside in all weather. Thanks so much to the team at Fresco Shades.Sarah and Paul Conner
We are thrilled with the end result. We are already getting good responses from family and friends. Great service all round, from the initial contact to completion.Rob and Cecelia Murray
I would recommend a Fresco Shades canopy to anyone wanting to keep the rain and also the hot sun off their deck. The construction is excellent, in fact it is just perfect. The installers and salesman were great to deal with. Thank you Fresco Shades.Vivian Goh
Steve and Julian have just put up the plastic drop, which now completes our Fresco shade, and I am thrilled with the finished look. We have been very impressed with the quality of the product, the expert advice given by Russell at the outset, and the excellent standard of workmanship by your installation team. 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
