We Specialize in Wood & Aluminum Shade Structures

Choosing wood as the material for your pergolas, patio covers, carports, and awnings offers a multitude of benefits that go beyond aesthetics. At Dallas Pergola Company, we advocate for wood due to its timeless appeal, durability, and environmental sustainability. Here’s why wood stands out as the superior choice for your outdoor structures:

Natural Beauty: Wood’s natural beauty is unmatched, offering a warm and inviting look that complements any outdoor setting. Its unique grains and textures bring a touch of nature to your backyard, creating an ambiance of rustic elegance. Unlike synthetic materials, wood ages gracefully, developing a rich patina that enhances its charm over time.

Versatility: Wood is incredibly versatile, allowing for a wide range of designs, styles, and finishes. Whether you prefer a classic, traditional look or a more modern, sleek design, wood can be crafted to meet your aesthetic preferences. It can be painted, stained, or left in its natural state, giving you the flexibility to match or contrast your existing outdoor decor.

Durability and Strength: When properly treated and maintained, wood is a durable and strong material capable of withstanding the elements. It offers excellent resistance to wind and can bear significant weight, making it ideal for supporting climbing plants or hanging outdoor lights. With Dallas Pergola Company’s expert installation and maintenance tips, your wood structures can last for decades, providing long-lasting enjoyment.

Eco-Friendly: Wood is a renewable resource, making it one of the most environmentally friendly building materials available. It has a lower carbon footprint than steel or concrete and requires less energy to produce. By choosing wood, you’re not only enhancing your outdoor space but also making a responsible choice for the planet. Additionally, wood can be recycled or repurposed at the end of its life, further reducing its environmental impact.

Insulation Properties: Wood naturally provides insulation, helping to regulate the temperature in your outdoor spaces. In summer, a wooden pergola or patio cover can reduce heat, creating a cooler area for relaxation. In cooler months, wood helps to retain warmth, making your outdoor area more comfortable to use year-round.

Cost-Effective: Compared to other materials, wood is cost-effective, offering excellent value for money. It is readily available and less expensive than some alternative materials, making it a budget-friendly option for those looking to enhance their outdoor space without breaking the bank.

Enhances Property Value: Investing in high-quality wood structures not only improves your quality of life but can also increase the value of your property. Beautifully designed pergolas, patio covers, carports, and awnings are attractive features that appeal to potential buyers, should you ever decide to sell your home.

While wood offers natural beauty and warmth, aluminum is a powerful contender in the realm of outdoor structures such as pergolas, patio covers, carports, and awnings. At Dallas Pergola Company, we also recognize the distinct advantages of aluminum for those seeking a modern, low-maintenance, and durable solution. Here’s why aluminum might be the right choice for your project:

Durability and Longevity: Aluminum is renowned for its resistance to rust, decay, and insect damage, making it an ideal material for outdoor use. Unlike wood, it doesn’t require regular staining or sealing to maintain its appearance and structural integrity. This resilience translates to a longer lifespan with minimal maintenance, ensuring your outdoor structures remain in excellent condition for years.

Low Maintenance: One of the most significant advantages of aluminum is its ease of care. It withstands harsh weather conditions, including extreme heat, heavy rain, and snow, without warping, cracking, or fading. A simple cleaning with soap and water is usually all that’s needed to keep your aluminum structures looking like new.

Lightweight Yet Strong: Despite being lightweight, aluminum is incredibly strong and can support considerable weight. This strength-to-weight ratio makes it easier to work with during installation and allows for the creation of larger spans without the need for extensive support structures. It’s an excellent choice for wide patio covers and carports where minimal posts and beams are desired for an unobstructed view.

Versatility in Design: Aluminum offers great flexibility in design, with a wide range of finishes and colors available. It can be powder-coated to any color to match or complement your home’s exterior, providing a sleek, modern look. Additionally, aluminum can be textured to mimic the appearance of wood, offering the best of both worlds — the look of wood with the benefits of aluminum.

Eco-Friendly Option: Aluminum is a sustainable choice for environmentally conscious homeowners. It is 100% recyclable, with the majority of aluminum structures being made from recycled materials. This reduces the environmental impact and ensures that, should you ever need to replace or dispose of your aluminum structures, they can be recycled without ending up in a landfill.

Energy Efficiency: Aluminum reflects sunlight and heat, helping to keep your covered areas cooler during the hot summer months. This reflective property can contribute to lower energy costs by reducing the need for air conditioning in spaces adjacent to your outdoor structures.

Enhances Property Value: Just like wood, investing in high-quality aluminum structures can significantly enhance the curb appeal and value of your property. Their modern appearance, durability, and low maintenance requirements make them attractive to potential buyers, potentially increasing your home’s market value.

Why Aluminum?

The Dallas region is hot and sunny for most of the year. Aluminum has a strong resistance against heat in addition to being lightweight, which makes installation much quicker than when dealing with heavier materials. With its excellent UV-resistance, aluminum can last years without any problems such as corrosion or wear-and-tear that would eventually necessitate replacement if you were using another material like wood.

Aluminum Pergolas

People think of wood when talking about pergolas. It’s understandable since it was the primary material used to build them for centuries, but that time has passed! Wood can rot and catch fire or get infested with termites just like any other building material would so we use aluminum instead because it will never do those things.

Our aim is for our pergolas to be almost indistinguishable from the real thing (wood) while still being able to withstand pressure without rotting out as easily as lumber does in an outdoor setting over a long period of time and looking better than traditional metal styles too!

People often visualize wooden structures such as patios called “pergolas” when they mention this word – there’s no denying its history.

Aluminum Patio Covers

Aluminum patio covers are always a good idea and tick all the boxes. With our special coating procedure, it’ll never need repainting making them an excellent investment for years to come! Aluminum is resistant against winter, humidity or water so they can be enjoyed year-round. A great way to keep friends and family company on those rainy days when you still have time off from work because aluminum doesn’t let any of that moisture in!

Aluminum Awnings

Awnings are a great, quick and affordable solution to shading. Traditionally they were made from textile material with metal frame; however, the modern trend is for retractable or roll-up models that can be easily taken down in high wind areas.

These awnings provide ample shade not only for windows but also doors and whole patios too! Areas covered by these screens can get as much as 20% cooler because of them so you don’t need air conditioning half the time when it’s really hot outside – this will save on your power bills over time!

And aluminum frames last incredibly long due to their durability: no more worrying about rips or getting blown off in extreme winds like other materials (like canvas).
