What is a Pergola?
A pergola is an outdoor structure which enhances your home’s value and which consists of two parts: timber and roofs. Pergolas have become famous for residential owners, especially those with gardens in Australia. This is so because they significantly improve the area’s aesthetics and performance. For summers, pergolas serve as a great place to relax.

As dictated by traditional methods, pergolas were only built from either stone or wood. As it now stands, you can build your own pergola using different types of materials such as cellular PVC, steel, aluminium, and fibreglass.
