We use aluminum material for all our pergolas and patio covers in Arizona due to the extreme heat.

Please note that wood or vinyl materials are highly discouraged and can be problematic in our hot climate.

We have done our research – when it comes to giving our customers the very best aluminum pergola materials available, Duralum Home Improvement Products can not be beat!
