Creating Your Custom-Built Pergola

Alumawood® Pergola

Alumawood® is a new material that has become increasingly popular for outdoor pergolas. It is a unique material that combines the best qualities of wood and aluminum. Alumawood® is resistant to burning, cracking, peeling, rotting, splitting, and warping. Due to its aluminum construction, it also protects outdoor furniture like grills, tables, and chairs. It is stylish and cost-effective and requires low maintenance.
Alumawood pergolas combine the classic beauty of wood with the durability and low maintenance of aluminum. They are also resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage. You can easily customize their design with various colors, stains, and textures. Alumawood is your versatile solution for enhancing your outdoor spaces with elegance and longevity!

Custom pergola attached to house or freestanding

When adding a pergola to your home, you have two setting options: attached or freestanding. If you choose a custom pergola attached to your house, it will blend seamlessly with your home’s architecture, offering easy access to your outdoor living space while providing shelter. On the other hand, a freestanding pergola gives you more flexibility with its placement and design, allowing for greater creativity in landscaping and versatile use of your outdoor area.

Layout and Protection

The lattice and intricate design filter sunlight through your pergola, reducing sun exposure by 40-60%. It also adds sophistication to your home’s exterior without blocking refreshing breezes. Would you prefer a fully shaded spot? You can also opt for a Pergola with Solid Panels and Insulated Panels. Available in various sizes and with customization options like double beams and ceiling fans, you can make your pergola match your needs, fulfilling your design vision!

Additional features


Lighting options for pergolas are essential for extending usability into the evening. You can create ambiance, enhance safety, and allow for continued enjoyment of outdoor spaces after sunset, making the pergola a versatile and inviting setting for gatherings and relaxation. We offer you the choice between string lights, lanterns, or built-in fixtures!

Privacy Screens:

Privacy screens offer a discreet solution for enhancing intimacy and seclusion within custom pergola designs. By integrating these screens, you can create a cozy retreat shielded from prying eyes, allowing for undisturbed relaxation and intimate gatherings in your outdoor space while maintaining an elegant and cohesive aesthetic.

Climbing Plants and Vines:

Incorporating climbing plants and vines adds natural beauty and shade to custom pergolas, enhancing their appeal with lush greenery and fragrant blooms. To avoid high-maintenance plants and vines, you can easily opt for artificial ones and intertwine them with the pergola’s structure. They create a charming canopy of foliage, providing more cooling shade and a tranquil atmosphere for outdoor enjoyment.

Different options are available like the example above Solid Panels vs. Lattice.

Pergola’s Moderate Dirt: Use clear water and a soft-bristle brush to keep your pergola looking its best with occasional washing. A garden hose and a long-handled car-washing brush are also ideal tools for gently removing debris and maintaining your pergola’s pristine appearance.

Environmental Black Streaking: Environmental factors can lead to black streaking on your pergola’s surface. Call us to determine the best method for safely removing these streaks and preserving the structure’s aesthetic appeal.

Caulking Compounds: To clean caulked areas, you can use mineral spirits in moderate amounts and apply them directly to the foreign substance. Rinse thoroughly with water immediately after cleaning to maintain the integrity of the caulk and prevent damage to your pergola.

Heavier Dirt Accumulation: For more stubborn dirt buildup, utilize a cleaning solution consisting of detergent, trisodium phosphate powder (T.S.P.), and water. This potent mixture effectively removes dirt and grime, restoring your pergola’s cleanliness and enhancing its visual appeal.

Mildew Accumulation: Combat mildew growth on your pergola using a cleaning solution comprising detergent, trisodium phosphate powder (T.S.P.), sodium hypochlorite 5% solution (Clorox®), and water. This powerful blend eradicates mildew, ensuring that your pergola remains pristine and inviting for your gatherings with friends and family.
