Fresco Shades offer a wide range of canopy and awning styles to suit your home or business perfectly. All our canopies are custom designed and made specifically to your fit your outdoor space.
You decide the size, shape, and color of your canopy to create your dream outdoor room! Our most popular award winning arch design allows for an increased feeling of space, however we also offer various other options such as semi-arched or lean-to styles.
The majority of our canopies are attached to your home or building with strong custom engineered brackets, however our canopies and awnings can also be free standing if required. Whatever the style, all our canopies are made with the same architectural grade PVC and strong powder coated steel frame.

Fresco Shades most popular arch design canopy

Our bread and butter design, we designed this style over 16 years ago and have been installing thousands for happy customers ever since.

 Scallop edge


A popular option for the front edge of our canopies, the scallop edge gives a dynamic ‘shade sail’ look and feel to the canopy. Fabric is tensioned to the arch using extremely strong eyebolts.

Flat style-lean to canopies and awnings

This café style design has become increasingly popular in recently years, especially used in the hospitality industry for restaurants and cafes. Lean to canopies are also sometimes prefered in the residential setting, where it may suit the house better than an arched canopy.

Free standing canopies and awnings 

When there is no existing structure to attach the canopy to, a free standing canopy is a great option which still offers the same robust strength as attaching to a building.  This is a great option in several scenarios such as car storage, playground covers, outdoor seating, and pool covers.

Semi Arched 

A hybrid between our popular arch canopy and lean-to style, this newly developed style allows for the best of both worlds, maintaining a lean-to look, while still allowing an increased sense of space.


This sleek looking design is often used to cover seating areas, popular with bowls clubs, or swimming pool areas.

Multi Arch 

Often used to connect two areas or over large spans. Our canopies are designed in way where an additional canopy can often be attached at a later stage if required.

Hip Roof

Useful in situations where building roof is a triangle shape.

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.

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.

Derek and Sue Ranger

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
