We would definitely recommend them  – fabulous team at kapiti and wonderful product.

Ian & Sue

The Stretch Canvas team installed clear PVC curtains around our spa pool and they really have enhanced the space and our enjoyment of it by sheltering the area form the elements whilst enabling us to continue to enjoy our view to kapiti Island. The team were quick, efficient and did a great job from start to finish.

We recommend them and their product highly.

Firstly THANK YOU for your help, guidance attention to detail and friendly service at all stages of our Inquiry, selection, process of construction and completion

We found your support throughout gave us confidence in your product, assurance of tailormaking all possibilities to suit our situation and great communication with negotiating finer detail to help produce our “Dream Canopy Shelter”

Your Team of experts employed at each level of the construction inspired us with confidence and we appreciated their suggestions for our special spot.

We had explored quite a few possibilities for our Outdoor /Indoor Living /Dining and selected Stretch Canvas because of being local, attention to detail, price, material available for usage, attention to colour, design and aesthetic blending with environment and purpose possibilities along with the friendly, personal service on all levels – nothing was too much trouble.


Love the finished product! Your service has been excellent, communication outstanding.

Would recommend your business without hesitation.


Pergola looks great! We are very happy with the service we have received and it’s been very reassuring to have had the updates throughout the project keeping us informed every step of the way
