What is a pergola?

High on many people’s wish-lists for their homes is a luscious, green, outdoor living area. And for a lot of homeowners, pergolas - an outdoor garden feature that forms a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area - are a great way to create an amazing outdoor space. And given that some Pergolas come with features such as roofs and insulations they are incredibly versatile and can be used in many ways.

What makes a great pergola?

We can help you create stylish spaces through the use of our clever designs and high-quality construction techniques. Whether you are after a dome style awning or a gable / pitched roof pergola we build all of our awnings using Australian made colorbond steel. If you are considering a pergola for your home there are a couple of things to consider to ensure you get a great pergola:
A pergola that comes with either a dome style awning or a gable / pitched roof over its top is a great aesthetic addition to any home while providing a spacious feel and practical style.
Insulated roof pergolas keep users comfortable and dry. Insulated roof panels leave a polished look and allow for the installation of downlights and ceiling fans.


Latest Trends in Pergola Designs

Pergolas can be used to create an amazing alfresco extension. However, with more and more people working from home in the wake of the pandemic, many people are now using their outdoor living area as more than just a place for leisure and they are becoming outdoor rooms.

Some of the most loved trends for pergolas in 2021 include:

Creating an outdoor garden office with an insulated pergola which has fully insulated roof panels.
Having a pergola with a roof can make it into a mini playground for children while staying undercover and out of the weather.
