Metal or Aluminum Pergolas: Which One’s Ideal for Your Home?

Metal Pergolas

The commonly utilized metal for building pergolas is COLORBOND steel. Metal pergolas are highly flexible and can be finished with paint or a premium powder coat. They can also be customized to outfit your design requirements! They are clean and chic, perfectly fusing with contemporary homes.

Metal pergolas have a matching appearance to aluminum but are made to bear much sturdier structures. Metal pergolas will be subjected to corrosion or rust if not treated before installation. The proper treatment would be 100% Zinc coating or zinc-aluminum amalgamation paint.

Compared to aluminum pergolas and timber pergolas, metal pergolas are more durable and robust and, thus, will last longer. Additionally, metal pergolas are ideal for individuals who lack time to maintain them. A clean cloth once in a while is all that’s needed to maintain these pergolas.

Aluminum Pergolas

Whether you live near the coast land or in the bay, aluminum pergolas are your go-to choice. Most of them come pre-painted to the color you want or powder-coated, giving you a low-maintenance finish. They are lightweight and corrosion and rust-resistant. They are an optimal choice for terraces or balconies where weight is required to be reduced to a minimum.
