Why Fiberglass?

why-fiberglass-01

Stability

Our stock pergola kits are wind load rated. Fiberglass beams can span longer distances than wood or vinyl. Unlike wood, their high strength-to-weight ratio keeps them from sagging under their own weight. Unlike vinyl, they are unaffected by variations in temperature and will not sag in hot climates.

High Strength-to-Weight Ratio

Pound for pound, our light weight fiberglass-reinforced components are stronger than steel. This allows for quick and easy installation without the need for cranes or large crews.

Corrosion Resistance

Fiberglass-reinforced composites are naturally corrosion resistant. They will not rust, corrode, or pit in external applications.

Consistency in Appearance and Performance

Compared to traditional materials, fiberglass components offer a uniform appearance that lasts for years. They do not twist, warp, or bow after installation and they maintain their full strength over the life of the product.

Ease of Installation

Our pergolas are fabricated to specific dimensions, making installation easy and fast. Parts are clearly marked and all hardware is included so that your pergola can be completed in hours. Optional wind load/deck plates do not include deck screws.
