Let’s start with what is a Pergola. A pergola is an open and grid design that offer in more sunlight than a gazebo. They’re great for creating a nice outdoor space and now are becoming more customizable. Generally, pergolas are made from cedar wood; opposed to Trex which makes there pergola’s out of aluminum or aluminum reinforced PVC. Using these materials makes them lighter and longer lasting. Not to mention Trex offers a variety of options to tailor the pergola to the homeowner.

Trex Pergolas have a variety of standard models that anyone can get that best suit for their outdoor needs. Each model has a unique feature that adds to both the pergola itself as well as the outdoor space. Features range from a fabric canopy system, mounting a wall over a doorway, window, or even a garage door. There are custom pergola kits that homeowners can get match their size and design. Finally, every Trex covers their pergolas with a 25-Year Limited Residential Warranty or a 10-Year Limited Commercial Warranty.
