Outdoor entertaining under a pergola provides an inviting respite from the harsh sun with comfortable shade. An outdoor structure also enhances both the architectural style and utility of your yard. Relax and unwind in an inviting space with your guests and family in a pergola. 

Today’s pergolas are innovative sunshade systems that are ideal for use in outdoor spaces. If you are creating a plan for a spectacular outdoor living space, designing a shaded retreat or simply enhancing the beauty of your home, a pergola will be the perfect addition. 

Motorized roof beams provide protection against rain or allow just the right amount of sun. Roofs made of compact clear polycarbonate sheets are available in a wide range of colors with infrared filters. They also help block infrared radiation and reduce heat while still allowing natural light.

The best pergolas professionals will only choose the highest quality materials for your new pergola. Modern outdoor structures are manufactured from aluminium and polycarbonates that create stylish and innovative alternatives to the classic wooden pergolas or sun awnings. These materials are long lasting and virtually maintenance-free. They are highly customizable to allow you to enjoy a starry sky in summer and it doesn’t compromise the light transmission to the inside during winter months. 

A free-standing pergola utilizes traditional post and beam construction and is often used to create the feel of an open-air outdoor room without requiring external supporting walls for securing. Since it is a stand-alone structure, it can be built nearly anywhere on your property. They are perfectly suited to provide coverage over hot tubs, decks and patios and carports.

If free-standing structures don’t properly fit your landscape, one can be easily attached to an existing building such as your home, pool house or a deck. Often serving as an extension of the home, they can provide additional living space and offer a charming transition from the house to your garden or yard.

An elegant and effective solution to protect your car from the rain, snow or strong sunlight with a polycarbonate cover called Drive. They are also customizable in dimensions and color to match your home’s existing style.
