The Undercover Story:

Kiwi’s love the outdoors and outdoor living, but our harsh UV can get the best of us all. Undercover Industries was born out of the need to create outdoor rooms that enhance your living experience, while allowing you to entertain all year around, protecting your family and assets, with 99.9% UV protection. When husband and wife Gavyn and Shannon opened Undercover Industries in 2015, they wanted to create a unique individually designed outdoor living spaces that complimented individual’s houses, as no two homes are the same. Living in  beautiful Tauranga meant that material selection was key for providing high quality, durable and attractive outdoor covered solutions. Aluminium was critical to ensure these rooms can be exposed to the elements, without the worry of rusting. A change from what was already on the market.

Undercover Industries are a small and passionate team, who love creating unique rooms that add value to your biggest asset. No job is too big or small, our customised approach ensures you get exactly what you want, with a simple and easy, stress free process, giving you the peace of mind that your job will be completed ontime and on budget. Undercover Industries pergola systems are proudly made and manufactured right here in the sunny Bay of Plenty, so you have the peace of mind that the quality of our aluminium based products are simply the best. We guarantee it!
