Four generations, left to right: Kurt, Devon, Bram and Eric Breetvelt
Family business, Family values
I’m Kurt, the third generation to sit in the Sunnyside driver’s seat.
At Sunnyside, we provide our customers with great-value, quality polycarbonate roofing supplies backed by excellence in customer service.
We offer a whole range of quality clear roofing products, as well as all the necessary accessories you’ll need. Stores in Auckland and Christchurch, plus, we deliver NZ-wide.
Customer satisfaction guaranteed
When you deal with the owner-operator of this family business (that’s me) you’ll always enjoy personal service, good relationships and customer satisfaction. That’s why we have 100% positive feedback from our Trade Me customers.
And a truly personal approach
We believe we can set a new standard by combining a simple streamlined process with a truly personal approach - where I’m always available for free advice, where you get clear, helpful tips about how to install and care for your roof. And where you deal with a business owner who genuinely wants to know about your project and ensure its success.
In fact, for Auckland deliveries, it may even be me dropping off your order… so I’ll look forward to meeting you. Because that’s the Sunnyside way!
Our first generation, Bram Breetvelt, came out to New Zealand from Holland in the 1950s. In 1963, he established the Sunnyside business, upcycling car cases into simple, yet practical, wooden sheds. Sunnyside then moved into the timber business and the second generation, Eric Breetvelt, took over the operation.
Eventually the rise of big box stores made the timber business unsustainable, so Kurt and his Dad started importing polycarbonate roofing, establishing Sunnyside Limited.
Today, Kurt runs the operation under the watchful eye of his son, Devon and with the occasional hand from his Dad.

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
We also like to give back to our local community.
Back in the day, both my Father and Grandfather worked with the Samoan community and the elderly.
Today, I’m actively involved in What Hope, a charity that engages and inspires the youth of South Auckland through various programs, activities and outings.
