Powder Coated Steel Pergolas
Powder Coated Steel pergolas have a few advantages in that there is no need to paint the pergola and also the amount of maintenance is a lot less. This makes it a very popular pergola for elderly people and also for very busy people.
Treated Pine Pergolas
Treated Pine pergolas require a little more maintenance as they do need to be painted. These pergolas are treated with a special chemical and need to be painted for external use for the warranty to apply.
Architectural pergolas are also commonly known as free standing pergolas. They generally do not have any roofing and are also designed by architects to suit the home owners house. These are also very popular as the shapes of these are usually quite unusual and artistic.
Arbours are also another form of shade if big enough and also very popular with federation style homes. Plants are generally grown over the top of them and they can look very appealing.
