Benefits of a Pergola

Real Shade

Our angled shade system on the pergola’s roof allows for 50%, 75% or 90% shade patterns, while most others only provide 20-30%. Our shade system also helps with air flow. Expensive canopies can act as a barrier to allowing any heat to escape and allowing fresh air to move through. Our team members can assist you with orienting your pergola in the correct direction to maximize your shade coverage. Additionally, the internal aluminum reinforcements allow for easy add-on drop shades or privacy paneling between posts.

High Strength

Our pergolas feature a rust proof, ultra strong aluminum frame that runs throughout the entire pergola. This means the full length of each post and the full length of all structural profiles (beams & rafters) of your pergola have fully extruded lifetime warranty aluminum pieces inside of the vinyl sleeves. Wood pergolas often rot, sag, bow, twist, warp, discolor, rust, or crack over time. Our vinyl pergolas will never need re-stained or repainted.

Our 1/2 inch thick post bases will allow you to securely install your pergola to any deck, patio, pillar, or cement base.
