"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."
"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."

"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."
(Jan and Steve Mason)
"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."
(Wayne, 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, Auckland)
"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, Auckland)
"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, Auckland)
"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, Auckland)
"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, Auckland)
“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. “(Bill Gulik, Virbac NZ, Auckland)
“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.
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”.
