To show our clients that we’re serious about exceptional customer service and support, we do all our shade installations ourselves. There are plenty of businesses that don’t follow the necessary steps, installing cheap products for clients that won’t last or don’t fit. We do things correctly and don’t cut corners, as we know what works and what doesn’t. Thanks to this, we work with experts who’ve been in the trade for almost 50 years. It’s also why we’re trusted by large, multinational companies to complete large-scale installations and it’s this same expertise that residential customers enjoy when we help them at home. We have often assisted customers who’ve used other manufacturers and installation companies and need someone who knows what they’re doing to fix the mess these companies created!

While our head office and factory is in Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore, we have agents and workshops in Nelson, Blenheim, Whitianga, Pukekohe and Mount Wellington. To arrange an appointment, you can fill in our contact form, call 09 489 1111 or email us at

Many companies in New Zealand offer shade solutions, but how many of them are family businesses that have been in operation as long as the Lidgard Shades team have? As many aspects of our business is local, and we proudly use, and stock high-quality New Zealand made shade products that have been manufactured using local suppliers and workers where posssible. We can afford to pay attention to detail, which is a quality other businesses lack. As we offer a beginning-to-end solution, you’ll enjoy an installation that is as long-lasting and reliable as our products are.
