What we do

Undercover is a custom canvas and awning company based in Barbados. Our mission is to provide bespoke canvas products, sails and awnings of all sizes and of the highest quality. We also offer repairs and servicing throughout the Caribbean region and internationally. We cater to all marine, residential and commercial needs including boat sails and covers, awnings for patios, retractable roofs, carports and walkway canopies.

In operation since 2003, Undercover Canvas has emerged as a leader in the awning industry in the Caribbean, carrying out installations throughout the region and in the United States. We take great pride in our innovative designs and use only the best materials and threads available. We are also devoted to maintaining an exceptional level of customer service and efficiency. Our experienced technicians welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements and advise on how best to suit your needs during a consultation on site at your property, business or boat, where we can take measurements, review our many fabric samples with you and offer professional recommendations and quotes.
