Pergolas: Adding a Touch of Sophistication to Your Outdoor Space

Pergolas are a great way to add style and function to your outdoor space, and they’re perfect for New Zealand’s climate. Whether you’re looking for a place to relax and enjoy the sunshine, or you need a covered area to entertain guests, a pergola is the perfect solution.


At Shades Direct, we take pride in our Clearspan Awnings, Canopies, and Pergolas, which are unrivalled in quality. We utilise premium materials, including 80 x 50 3mm construction grade Aluminium, 316 marine grade stainless steel fixings, and a choice of 6mm flat sheet or Greca profile roofing. In this particular project, we’ve installed a 5.3m x 4m Clearspan, enhancing this coastal property by not only adding valuable space but also elevating the overall worth of the home.

In addition to their durability, our pergolas are also incredibly stylish. We offer a variety of designs to choose from, so you can find the perfect one to complement your home and outdoor décor. Whether you’re looking for a modern or traditional look, we have you covered.

Endless choices for your pergola

Pergolas are a great way to add value to your home and improve your outdoor living space. They are also a sustainable option, as they can help to reduce your energy costs by providing shade and blocking the sun’s heat from entering your home. Here are some of the different types of materials used for pergolas:


  • Aluminium pergolas: Aluminium pergolas are the most popular option because they are durable, low-maintenance, and come in a variety of colours and styles.
  • Covered pergolas: Covered pergolas provide protection from the sun, rain, and wind. They are perfect for creating an outdoor living space that you can enjoy year-round.
  • Deck pergolas: Deck pergolas are a great way to add shade and privacy to your deck. They can also be used to create a separate dining or seating area on your deck.
  • Garden pergolas: Garden pergolas are a beautiful and functional addition to any garden. They can be used to create a shaded area to relax and enjoy the garden, or to support climbing plants.
  • Outdoor pergolas: Outdoor pergolas are designed to withstand the elements. They are perfect for creating an outdoor living space that you can enjoy year-round.
