Our Range of Different Pergola Styles & Options

Deciding what type of pergola best suits your needs is the first step in creating your ideal space, and we offer a few different styles that have their own benefits.

Flat Roof Pergolas

With a flat roof pergola, you're offered the opportunity to add modern elegance to your outdoor space, as well as making it possible to create the perfect blend from indoors to outdoors. They're also really practical, providing an excellent level of shade on sunny days and protection from rain when the weather turns.

Skillion Roof Pergolas

Perfect for adding architectural charm and interest, along with a touch of drama, to your outdoor space, skillion roof pergolas have a sloped roof that is ideal for providing shade on hot days while still allowing air to flow freely through the space. The sloped roof is also fantastic for allowing rainwater to run off, minimising the risk of pooling and water damage.

Gable Roof Pergolas

A gable roof pergola offers a classic, timeless look to an outdoor space, with its traditional triangular roof that works well in both modern and traditional homes. This roof design also offers a great deal of practicality, ensuring rainwater is evacuated easily while providing shade all day long as the sun changes position.

Pergola Kits

Our pergola kits are perfect for DIY enthusiasts, making it easier than ever to take the project on by yourself and save on building costs. Everything is simple to follow, the kit contains everything you need, and you still get full customisation options.
