The great thing about retractable roofing is it provides the ultimate in flexibility. No other system will provide a sense of complete openness with the ability to be totally enclosed only moments later should the need arise.

Lidgard's retractable roofs will allow you to enjoy the sun but with the press of a button can be transformed to protect you from its UV rays, rain and wild weather also.

They are great for extending your living areas without compromising on the benefits of being outdoors.

Highly customizable Lidgard has found a way to make retractable roofs work in all different situations, talk to us today about how a retractable roofing solution may work for you for your home or business.

We're not cowboys! Check out the following resources that should give you some further guidance on what is required in terms of consent when considering a retractable roof.

This is the site for Auckland city council but will provide good guidance for most of NZ.

Please be aware that a retractable roof is currently a grey area and no guidance has yet been issued around if the retractable nature of the roof makes it a permanent structure or not. If you wish to take the cautious approach we recommenced you use the guidance on awnings.
