Fresco Shades Canopies are available in a variety of different styles to suit. Our most popular arch awning design creates an increased feeling of space; however we offer other designs such as the semi arched or lean-to styles. Mostly our canopies are attached to your home or building with strong custom made brackets, however they can be made as free standing awnings if required.

It has added a wonderful new outdoor area to our wee cottage and admired by everyone. Would most definitely recommend FRESCO they are absolutely awesome in every way.Response from the ownerThanks so much Adrienne for sharing your comments. The team really appreciate it and we are delighted you are happy! Ako LangimalieAko Langimalie β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… We're very happy with our outdoor blinds. It makes our lives easy now. Before our blinds used zipper and you have to roll it up to clip it. Now it's very easy, you just slide it up and slide it down. Not only that but we did wanted our blinds to be install on a specific time, earlier than their timeframe for installation. Richard and Anel worked together to make it happen. And it did. Thank you Fresco Shades.Sheryl MatherSheryl Mather β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… We are very happy with this product.

Re installation quick and we are happy customersResponse from the ownerThanks Marie-Christine, glad we could help keep your canopy looking great.😁 Eugene MamauagEugene Mamauag β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… My wife & I was very happy with the outcome of the installation.

Judith GiddyJudith Giddy β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… This project was completed within the time frame agreed to and according to quote and plans. We are extremely happy with our dealings with Mathew Barker especially his knowledge of the product, his communication, and his ability to solve any problems. At no time did we have any doubts about proceeding with the project once we decided to proceed. The guys installing the frame, curtains and canopy also knew what they were doing, were efficient, polite and a pleasure to deal with. As a result, this made the installation and finished product an exciting and enjoyable process. We are very impressed and happy with the final product. Would recommend to anyone wanting a high quality product.Response from the ownerThanks so much Judith, we really appreciate the lovely feedback, and hope you have a great summer under your new outdoor room! Pete HarrisPete Harris β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… We live in a rural area and fresco were more than happy to come and give us a quote. We had several other companies come out but they seemed to be less than happy to actually do the job and seemed to find so many obstacles to make it harder and more expensive. Richard from fresco suggested some ideas and then gave us a quote. He discussed this with the designer and came up with a better design to suit our house and it was actually a bit cheaper. They came and installed the roof at the time they said and were easy to communicate with through out the process. Today they installed the curtains and I cannot speak highly enough of the whole process. From quote to installation was seemless and professional. Even cleaning up was awesome. Love our new room and we should have done it years ago. Thank you all so much.Response from the ownerThanks so much Pete, awesome feedback and we're delighted everything went smoothly with your project. We hope you enjoy your new outdoor room for many years. Now roll on summer! Lloyd RiesLloyd Ries β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† Good showroom, staff very helpful with good product knowledgeResponse from the ownerThanks Lloyd, we appreciate the feedback! Lisette YoungLisette Young β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… UPDATE:Fresco Canopy + Christmas lights for the win!We love the effect so much they're now a permanent feature. 3 strings of lights that can be controlled independently, so we can light to match the mood.Nga mihi nui***********Huge thank you to the team who put up our canopy a few weeks ago.What a massive difference it has already made to the way we live! We've spent more time on the deck these past weeks than pretty much the rest of the year. It keeps us sheltered from blazing sun or sudden showers (typical Auckland weather) - all the benefits of being outside without the downside. The dogs thinks it's the best!Props to Gary who did an AMAZING job with the clear curtains!It was a big job under a blazing sun and he worked really hard to get the job done.We really appreciated the great clean up job both crews did too. It's the attention to detail that makes all the difference.We are LOVING IT!!! Wish we had done this sooner.Ka kite ano. We'll be back for the final end piece and curtains early next year (in time for winter!)Response from the ownerThanks so much Lisette, and we are stoked you are getting such good use out of it. Yes dogs and cats love the shade too! Have a wonderful summer in your outdoor room. Keith GermanKeith German β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… I felt I should write this review although I only paid my deposit yesterday and we will wait for our install. We have since found out two of our friends have had it done already with this company and both extremely happy.Richie who came to our home and helped us work out a tricky design, came up with a brilliant way to give us more outdoor area in a small townhouse environment.The company is excellent and have a proven track record over 20 plus years experience. Very professional, looking forward to the finished job now.We had four companies to quote and see our home, it was not a good experience no follow up and confusing pricing, Richie was the third one to visit and the best that's why we confirmed our order with them.Thanks for your professionalism. Regards KeithResponse from the ownerThanks Keith for sharing your experience and I will pass on your feedback to Richie! We hope you will be very happy when your canopy is installed.
