Vinyl Pergola Kits

We all like maintenance free, and the vinyl pergola offers just that!

There are various names for vinyl, which can be confusing: vinyl itself, plastic, PVC and UPVC (the material that double-glazing is made from). Usually, though, vinyl is most commonly used for this type of pergola design.






Traditionalists tend to go for crafted wood or metal pergolas, although some vinyl pergolas are made to look like wood, and, of course, they will never discolour or rot, which is a real bonus!

Those who have families, work long hours and have little or no time to themselves tend to opt for the maintenance free option because it is durable, easy to clean and requires little or no effort, both in the short and long term.

So there is just the question of whether you like it!

Do you find it as attractive as a wooden or wrought iron structure? If so, it is definitely worth investigating further.



Ideas

Today, there are many more of these products on the market compared to a few years ago, with more colours and styles to choose from, although most are in the US market.

Just recently available are some covered and attached vinyl pergolas. These are 3m deep from the house wall and in varying lengths, from 3m to over 9m.  Side panels can also be fitted in the same, strong polycarbonate material.

This type of pergola can create a very attractive garden feature ideal for relaxing in the sunshine, or entertaining friends and family.

More recently these pergolas are being stocked in larger garden centres around the country, where they have larger sized pergolas in traditional styles. It might be worth ringing around locally to see what is available.

For pergola kits for US nationwide distribution, take a look at some really lovely pergola designs.

Most are very easy to put together with stainless steel screws and pvc cement, and should only take an afternoon to install. If you buy a kit, all the end caps and brackets will come with the kit.

Even though the vinyl gives a more modern feel, the designs are often quite traditional with curved rafter tails and purlins across the top, so these pergolas don't look amiss in any style of garden.

If you like to keep maintenance to a minimum, this type of pergola might prove to be just the job.
