Have you ever dreamed of having your own shade pergola but realized that a traditional pergola provides neither shade nor rain protection? There is an alternative! Our collection of Custom-Built Motorized Aluminum Pergolas will give you decades of maintenance-free shade and rain protection. Notice in these two photos the beautiful look of the pergola in the open position (above) and the full shade and rain stopping power in the closed position (below). An Aluminum Pergola looks nearly identical to a wood structure except that it does not rot over time or require constant re-painting maintenance. Aluminum is naturally rust-proof and the powder coated finish on our Pergolas will last many times longer than paint on wood. Powder Coat is naturally smooth and tends to repel dirt where regular paint would absorb it. Also, the finish on our Aluminum Pergolas does not absorb moisture which allows the materials below to be truly protected.
