It is becoming a rare thing for a company to do what they say they’ll do in the time frame they state, for the price they quote and with the professionalism you want/expect as a customer.

We had a great experience with Canvas & Shades when they created all new squabs, canvas and clears for our boat, Thunderstruck. They looked at the job, quoted it, gave us a time frame and then actually stuck to it and delivered a fantastic product! Truth be told, they ended up waiting for us to be ready – not the other way around!

We wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again and would recommend them to everyone!

To the Team at Canvas & Shades,

We want to thank you for the great shade you have made for our outdoor BBQ area. It’s been great, extended our undercover area while still allowing the light in.This has been a hot, dry summer and being outdoors is the place to be and that’s been made very pleasant with this addition.

The prompt service, quality product and friendly disposition of your staff means that we would fully recommend you to anyone considering a shade sail.

We are extremely happy with the installed Triax Shade system, which has made a huge difference to the way we use our outdoor area.

We were pleased with all aspects of installation and the final completed job.

It was a very professional approach from start to finish, with good customer service.

We had shade sails put up on rollers over an open deck last summer. It was an area in full sun over summer and too hot to sit there. Following the inclusion of the sails we were inspired to purchase a lovely outdoor furniture set and have totally utilised this deck area over the last summer. The deck is elevated and overlooks the pool so it has been the perfect asset for us. It means, as the sun gets lower over winter, we can wind the sails in on the rollers and make full use of the sun into our lounge over the winter months. We have the best of both. The rollers add lots more flexibility to the
use of the sail. They are modern and match the pool tiles!

An awesome, fast and efficient service from the team.

Kerikeri Canvas & Shades

Canvas & Shades has provided us with a first rate product and service.

Our decks are laid out in uneven spaces with no easy way to position the shades. The team applied their expertise with considerable imagination and skill to provide us with shaded areas throughout the deck areas. The workmanship has proved to be outstanding. We are pleased to highly recommend Canvas and Shades.
