Aluminum Gazebo and Aluminum Pergola
Pergolas have slatted roofs and can let some sunlight in through, with the added effect of being able to withstand gusts of wind and help regulate the space underneath. They are also constructed to suit the exact dimensions of our clients. Modern gazebos – especially ones from any hardware or homeware retailer – are typically prefabricated and may not necessarily fit the space. While they may also be made from stronger materials, such as metals, it may be unclear what metals these are, or they may not be strong enough to weather the effects of the seasons, especially in North America.
Sunshades can be made from multiple materials. Aluminum is one of the most structurally strong and light metals used for construction, and the main element in our pergolas. With this material, we can create custom-size pergolas for any outdoor seating, entertainment, poolside, deck, porch and a number of outdoor areas. These pergolas typically consist of ‘sections’ of varying lengths and sizes, all depending on our clients’ specifications. They may even be attached to the building itself. The structure of gazebos do not allow for this kind of design and construction flexibility, though you may choose from pre-determined sizes, makes and forms.
Our louvered sunshade roofs are an essential element in the pergolas we create, which can close up entirely to withstand heavy snow loads and completely keep out rain. Typical Canadian gazebos need to be disassembled in the winter in case they collapse under the weight of the snow. While aluminum gazebos may exist, our aluminum pergola roofs give you better security, safety and comfort when it comes to enjoying outdoor living.
Modern Gazebos vs Louvered Aluminum Pergola
Louvered roofs are a quality that make our pergolas stand out from any aluminum gazebo. Whether motorised with a touch of a button or a manual turn of a handle, your louvered roof can open up to different angles, from 0 to 135 degrees. These different angles allow you to completely protect your furnishings and appliances, or control the brightness, ventilation and temperature underneath he pergola. Modern gazebos provide cover and aesthetic value; pergolas give you more than just sun cover.
Additionally, our team at Aluminum Pergola can customise our typical monochromatic aluminum pergolas to match any environment and backdrop. Our classic colour scheme is perfect for accentuating and highlighting the outdoors but can also be changed without having to completely change the pergola itself. Our modern pergolas come with the added option of having vertical sunshade screens for complete protection and privacy, mosquito screens, LED lights for added aesthetic and functional value, outdoor ceiling fans or infrared heaters.
These options, of course, are available to custom aluminum gazebos, which may be comparable to our pergolas in durability. However, the options for gazebos remain limited, and the gazebo roof – its defining quality used for its main function as a sunshade – is not quite as flexible in design. Custom-made gazebos may be suited to a detached outdoor space, but they cannot be attached, nor can multiple gazebos be attached to one another, side by side, to expand the amount of shade they provide. Their design flexibility and functionality are limited, unlike aluminum pergolas.
