Our team has more than 20 years’ experience delivering canvas, awning and shade solutions to improve outdoor spaces. We use top quality guaranteed products and, through New Zealand’s big suppliers, we have access to a large range of products, materials and fittings.

Outdoor Shelters

Stretch Canvas has its own manufacturing operation, so is able to provide awnings and shade solutions specifically designed for your property, along with its range of high quality products.

Stretch Canvas supplies and manufactures outdoor shade and shelter solutions for all types of properties including new builds, and existing deck and courtyard areas. No outdoor space challenge is too big or small and with our personalized service you can trust that your job will be completed to the highest standards and meets building compliance requirements.

“I love to entertain and to have a nice outdoor area at home myself, so I get as excited as my clients when I visit their property and see what they are trying to achieve with their outdoor area,” says Jason. “Most kiwis like outdoor living. If the sun is shining they want to be putting on a barbecue and having a wine or a beer. What we do is help them create a space they can use year-round and where they can open up the sides in summer and close them down in winter.”

What they say…

These wonderful people have added a room to our wee holiday batch. Fantastic from the beginning with their prompt, clear and helpful communication. Nothing was too much trouble. The job was done quickly and we are absolutely thrilled with the result.

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

Bruce - Kenakena School

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.
