Installation time will vary between projects and is largely dependent on the amount of preparation and groundwork required prior to installation. Prior to installation we will carry out a site survey and be able to provide you with a better time estimate for completion. Get in touch to arrange your site survey at a convenient time and date.

We can cover almost any area thanks to our pergolas’ coupling capabilities. This allows us to cover even L-shaped patio areas using our coupled systems.

No. Our range of metal pergolas are designed not to rust, crack or warp when exposed to the elements. They are also impervious to rot and insect infestation, unlike traditional wooden pergolas.

Yes. We have both louvered roof and sliding roof pergolas available. Both options provide you with the ability to fully close the roof in the case of rain or harsh sunlight. The slats of our louvered roof can be rotated 135 degrees, offering you total control over light and ventilation, whilst our sliding roof pergolas feature a fully retractable fabric roof.

Coupled with optional additions like outdoor heating and integrated LED lighting, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to use your new pergola whenever you wish.

Yes. Our pergolas are fully waterproof and come with an integrated drainage system which funnels rainwater harmlessly away down the leg posts.

It is usually not necessary to acquire planning permission prior to installing a pergola. However, you may require planning permission if you want to attach your pergola to the front of your house or you live within a conservation area. We recommend that you contact your local authority if you are at all unsure whether you will require planning permission.

Yes. Our pergolas come with a range of customisation options, like frame colour, as well as the option of accessories like integrated LED lighting, outdoor heaters, roller screns, wind and sun sensors, and more. Contact our team today to find out more about how you can customise your pergola to create the perfect outdoor space.

Our pergolas are made from high-quality aluminium and are capable of withstanding even the harshest weather conditions.

Our bioclimatic pergolas require very little maintenance to keep them looking and functioning great. However, every now and then you may need to clear out the integrated gutters and downpipes to ensure proper drainage and clean the frame to remove dirt. Our installation team can give you further guidance on how to best maintain your new pergola.

The pergolas we install are custom-built by Brustor. Brustor is a leading European manufacturer of high-quality aluminium pergolas, with a wide range of different models and colours to choose from.

Our pergolas are available in either anthracite grey or textured white as standard, however, you can choose any RAL colour you want for an additional surcharge. Contact our team to discuss your requirements.
