Durable Aluminum Pergola

Pergola is a durable sunshade structure, which roots go back ancient Greece and Rome. The main purpose of such framework is to provide shade on outdoor lanes, balconies, terrace and swimming pools. The earlier variations were typically built from rock columns with wood cross-beams that created a latticework roofing. Various climbing up plants, such as grapevines and ivy, were used to wind through the latticework roofing, which created a natural barrier from the sun.

Maintenance-free product

Today, wooden pergolas are typically created from pressure-treated timber or cedar. While providing the appearance of timber, they do not require frequent painting and are offered in a range of shades. The newest and most functional structure is a pergola made of aluminum. Aluminum pergola is a maintenance-free product, which has a maneuverable roof, that can be opened and closed. Such structure not only protects from the sun but also is completely waterproof when louvers are in closed position.
