"We recently had an awning installed over the front door of 2 properties.
Both look fantastic.
The service right from our initial enquiry to the installation was first rate.
We would definitely recommend the Team at Cool Awnings."
"What a pleasant experience we have just had having 5 relatively large mesh blinds installed on our new deck. Not only do they look good, they have been made very well to. No hitches and ready on time. The staff are all so helpful and friendly. The installation team took great care and pride in making sure everything was lined up and working just fine. So nice to see this in a company. Thank you to all. I highly recommend CoolAwnings and would not hesitate in using them again."
"A seamless project from start to finish. I visited the showroom and was shown the options. Then the installation happened when they said it would and the followup was professional with cleaning suggestions. The person who fitted them was very very good. A friendly and successful experience."
"We are thrilled with our Swingline awning purchased and installed by Cool Awnings in March 2014 and have no hesitation in recommending this company. We were very impressed with the service we received - John did not hesitate to return to re-measure when we were deliberating over the size of the awning we wanted, the installer made a pre-manufacture site check to ensure the awning could be (structurally) installed where we had requested (this gave us great confidence) and the office staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. Our awning was made well within the given time frames and we think price-wise this company offers great value for money. "
"Very professional and great to work with. No problems at all and thoroughly recommended.
Installation team very punctual and professional in every respect. Highly recommended and I would not hesitate to use them again. Many thanks."
"Everyone from sales, install and electrical works who was involved with the installation of our awnings, arrived on time, were friendly and thoroughly professional. 
Would highly reccomend."
"Cool Awnings installed an awning for me. The service and care they showed me was amazing and when the awning was installed it exceeded my expectations. They are undoubtedly a business that cares for customer satisfaction a rarity today. Thank you Kylie and John."
"Fantastic service and communication from first visit to showroom to first site visit for quote then installation and follow up.
If you want friendly, excellent service, don't want to get mucked around, and want a great product and service then get hold of these guys.
We live in Army Bay Whangaparaoa and that distance did not affect the great service we enjoyed.
Used their initiative and consulting skills in personalising our drop down curtain with our existing balustrade. Sparky was efficient and friendly as well.
Ordered - drop down curtain and a canopy."
"We are thrilled with the PVC drop curtains on our back verandah. It makes a wonderful conservatory that can be rolled up when we don't want to use it. Love it!"

"We purchased a lateral arm awning from Cool Awnings. John looked after us very well and coped with our tricky requirements. The team was friendly and helpful, and worked well with my builder as I requested. We are happy with the awning and can recommend this business"
"Cool Awnings recently made a custom canopy for an industrial application for us. They completed the job within a tight time frame in fact they exceeded expectation on delivery. They have also made other challenging industrial covers for us in the past and there work has always met our expectation. They are quick to grasp our ideas on what we are after and offer their own ideas and suggestions. I have found them professional to deal with and would recommend them."

"I thought I'd drop a line to say how pleased we are with our lovely "easy- shade". We have been able to sit outside and enjoy the outdoor life in our "little backyard", finally!!!!
Your blind/shade meets all our requirements a far as protection goes from the afternoon sun.
We were very pleased with the fast response to our enquiries and also to the fitting of the ''easy-shade". Your team was reliable and very professional in all aspects of the transaction.
We are very happy customers and we thank you. Cheers."

"I have put a post onto the No Cowboys website, in the affirmative, which is very accurate  in reflecting the excellent way this project was completed. I can happily report that we now have staff who aren’t so badly affected by the direct heat through the skylights. The project has been a complete success, and I would like to convey my appreciation to Walter and the team for a job very well done."
IceHouse (N.Z.) Ltd
"Just wanted to say what a pleasure it was dealing with you guys. Unfortunately it's not so common to get good service all round, and I was so impressed with how you were always right on time with appointment times, with having the job done in the time frame you quoted, and how simple you made the whole process - and most of all, the product looks great.  Thanks so much again, and we'll be in touch"
Andrew and Riki Ah Kuhi
"I have been meaning to touch base to let you all know what a great experience we have had from Cool Awnings from the very beginning when John came for the initial visit, right up to sitting the alfresco area admiring it all.
The area has always been great, but given we are on top of a hill in rural Waitakere, we couldn’t always use it.  Now we are very happy to say that except for a rare northerly, we use it all the time!
All the staff we came into contact with were excellent – thank you all very much, and credit to you for co-ordinating such a high standard of customer service." 
Kaaren and Allen White
"Excellent customer service and professional job, good communication, attention to detail and followup. Very friendly and obliging team. We are very happy with result and recommend this business"
Tracey St Clair
"Cool Awnings provide a fantastic professional service. The pricing is competitive and the staff are great to deal with and really know their stuff. They did a great job for more and turned it around quickly at a time of year which was particuarly busy. There products are great quality and look good. I would recommend them to anyone."
Anna Buchly
"Thanks for the MagicSeal, the house is noticeably much warmer already, and that's without curtains on the north side of the house."
Kylie Burling
"Just a quick to note to say that we are very thrilled with our beautiful new awning – and for the free calculator which you sent us with your follow up letter.
Many thanks to all the staff at Cool Awnings and especially the lady on the front desk who helped us decide and on arranging everything for us so promptly, and to the 2 men who did all the hard work and such a thorough job! Thanks again!"
Janet and Richard Lambert
“We bought a fixed frame awning off Cool Awnings as we needed a smoking area. Their staff knew what they were talking about and helped me overcome how to mount it on iron and avoid it leaking. We found they provided a great all round job, with fast service, good measure up and they even came back to recheck it after the job was completed. We are very happy – we got exactly what we wanted. “

“I first used Cool Awnings in the mid ’90s when I ordered an adjustable exterior awning to shade for my sun-drenched lounge and provide protection for furnishings. It was the type with a handle and I have used it constantly. However, after nearly 15 years the canvas needed replacing and I again contacted the Glenn’s for help. What a wonderful job they did. Then, while here, I mentioned that my ornamental gazebo had lost its rather fragile fabric roof in high winds. Cool Awnings took no time not only to replace it with a much stronger fabric but to secure the roof in such a way that I doubt it will ever blow off again. Just after the job was completed I went on holiday and returned only a week or so back to find a gift had arrived from the company. They gave me a first rate calculator as a gesture of thanks and I’m just thrilled. If the need arose I would use Cool Awnings over and over again. They’ve been fantastic.”

When we needed an awning for our new home we approached Cool Awnings having been satisfied customers from at least 10 years ago. We were delighted to find the same high level of service, quality of product, competitive prices and extensive range of fabric. Amazingly, there was no extra charge for measurement and installation on Waiheke. We are very pleased with the result.

Waiheke Island


Cool Awnings' work on Waiheke Island has been introduced by Trends Magazine 


When a much-loved historic building receives a new lease of life, it makes sense that the interior designers will match its traditional good looks with the spirit of today.

After 70 years, Moa Hall on Waiheke Island has already enjoyed many lives. Most recently known as Moa Hall Art Gallery, the celebrated blue building has now been completely refreshed, says designer Shelley Brockliss of Yellowfox, the interior design firm that undertook the makeover.

"The hall stands proud again, its historic charm balanced by the warmth and flavour of the ever-eclectic Waiheke lifestyle."

Renamed Moa Business Studios, it now comprises three purpose-built studios that accommodate up to three professionals each. The spaces are designed with flair and offer an enviable work-life balance on the island.

"Each studio features a large modern bathroom to shower or freshen up in after a swim, run or lunchtime walk," says Brockliss. "The studios are fitted with fully equipped kitchenettes and large decks for client entertaining. All enjoy views into the garden – perfect for relaxing on at the end of the day while sipping a crisp Waiheke wine."

Finished in a style that calls to mind rustic Spanish Modernism, and loft-style living, the studios feature products and materials from Yellowfox's trusted network of suppliers.

"As with most projects, first impressions were important. The rough-sawn, stained timber garden box contains delicate white geraniums that cascade over the sides, softening the lower facade of the building on approach.

"Colourful striped awnings from Cool Awnings are a playful touch and protect the doors from southerly weather and the midday sun.

How covering an exposed area kept kids playing even in the wind and rain. 

We have 23 kids and wanted to extend their outdoor play area. The problem we had though was that bad weather really limited the kids play space and we needed an outdoor area that could be used in both rain and sunshine. We contacted Cool Awnings who proposed to custom build a whole new room with a solid awning as the roof and retractable side drop curtains so we could adjust the panels depending on the weather.
The new area has been great and has increased the children’s play area by about 20%. They get more space, it has a solid roof so doesn’t leak and allows the children to still get some fresh air when it’s raining. The kids love the new area. They have tables and chairs in there and love the fact that they get the outdoor feeling even when it’s raining. Having an enclosed area makes our job a lot easier with regards to supervising the kids too. Overall, we were really pleased with the service from Cool Awnings and the kids love being able to go outside all year round.
