Why is shade protection important to Kiwis?
Due to our geographic location, New Zealand has the most harmful UV rays in the world, causing skin and fatal cancer issue. A canopy can be just the solution to provide that extra bit of protection, it also offers cover when the weather turns too wet! 

What are the benefits of having a canopy?
Having a canopy can maximise your outdoor usage, protect your family, furniture, carpet and decking from the harmful UV rays. Not to mention, the canopy can also increase your home's market value. 

Do I need to apply for Council Consent?
Generally no.
A building consent is required only if the awning has a total area of 30 square metres or larger.

How to look after the canopy?
Your canopy should be cleaned every 6-12 months.
Pre-rinse with a low-pressure washer to remove any dust and dirt. Clean the underside of your awning as well as the top with soft haired broom or sponge. Repeat as necessary until the dirt, stains and mould are removed to your satisfaction. Allow the canopy to dry completely. 
*Never use solvents, scourers, abrasives, bleach, acids or aggressive chemical cleaners.
*Do not use a high-pressure washer to clean the canopy.
