Why Aluminum?

When you are considering pergola materials for your outdoor structures in your outdoor space. Weather protection is probably one of the first things that come to mind.

Doesn't it make sense to have rust resistant aluminum for your pergola kits? Considering most places get rain in their outdoor spaces it's pretty important to make sure that your pergola project can withstand the weather you get.

Rain isn't the only factor of weather to consider. Obviously depending on where you are changes the type of weather you are concerned about. This was greatly put into consideration when designing our aluminum pergolas.

Whether you are in the hot Arizona sun, the heavy snowy mountains of Colorado, the hurricane force winds of Florida or the never ending rain of Mississippi were confident in our structure to not only withstand all of these weather forecasts, but also outlast other structures that could be an option.

Wood Pergolas Don't Weather...Right?

Not exactly, and by not exactly, I mean not true at all. Even if you were to go with a water sealed, treated lumber option you might get 10 or more years out of it. Now this definitely depends on a lot of factors.

Temperature fluctuations. How hot or cold your area fluctuates in temperature can drastically affect wood. especially if you live in a state like Indiana, where there can be a 40 degree difference from night to day.

Wood can rot, warp, burn, or break much easier than other alternatives out there like steel and aluminum. That being said, Wood is much stronger than some of the vinyl options out there but not as strong as aluminum.

Vinyl Pergolas

When it comes to vinyl pergola options you aren't left with a lot of room for customization. Vinyl pergolas tend to come in molds that are prefabbed and you are left chasing from a template of options.

Assuming you are able to keep a unit for several years in tact, if anything were to break or destroy a part of the unit, replacing the feature may be a challenge if that company changed their style or disconiutnued a variance of design.


This brings us to the durability of vinyl. Vinyl pergola options are on the weaker more lighter side. Being more susceptible to wind overturning which can inevitably lead to your structure breaking or being damaged.

Discoloration or Fading

Discoloring or fading can happen from prolonged direct sunlight giving distinct advantages to aluminum powered coated pergolas

Often times the vinyl material isn't susceptible to heavy chemical painting, keeping the paint layers thin and penetrable. making scratches, breaks and paint chips more possible.

Wood Pergolas

A wood pergola has many varying designs, which is why its such a popular option. Many homeowners who currently have them or have had them share similar complaints. The upkeep to lengthen the life is quite intrusive.

Maintenance Requirements

Owning a wood pergola leaves you with quite the task for maintenance. You should be buying weather protection wood, or treated wood for this project to begin with.

This will definitely help keep the life of it eating longer. That being said, wood is always susceptible to warping, breaking, and not to mention burning.

Depending on the use you're looking to get out, I personally never recommend wooden pergolas to be the source of overhead coverage for fire pit areas, for obvious reasons.
