    How to Choose the Right Material for Your Pergola

    Pergolas can be made from any number of materials, ranging from timber to steel. Whichever material you choose should be determined by the style of pergola design you’re after, as well as your budget and personal taste.
    The first step is choosing whether you would like a free-standing or attached pergola. Many people often select an alfresco area to span their pool area, patio, or entertainment space when it comes to attached designs. This can be created using steel posts that are set into concrete footings driven deep into the ground to ensure they don’t move under any load (such as sitting on them).
    To prevent rusting, the majority of these posts are made from powder-coated aluminium, which will last for many years in all types of weather. The decking that spans the area, providing a surface for you to relax and enjoy your pool or general outdoor living space, is generally made from either Timbertech (a combination of PVC and recycled timber) or ipe (an extremely dense and durable hardwood).
    When creating a free-standing pergola, heavy-duty aluminium posts are often built into concrete footings on each side. The internal steel reinforcing rods are then set into place using epoxy resin to ensure they don’t move under any load.
    After being pre-polished, these rods are protected with anodizing, giving them the same silver appearance but protecting them from rusting.

    Why Get A Pergola?

    The simple answer is because they look great. A shade structure can spruce up any outdoor space in your home or business. We design and manufacture many different styles of custom-made pergolas that will enhance your living area and increase its value. People find them practical, functional, and versatile and improve comfort levels by providing cooling shade in the summer months without losing too much heat during the winter months when the sun is lower in the sky.

    Our Products and Services

    At Pergolas Sunshine Coast, we’re 100% committed to providing our customers with the highest quality pergola construction service available. All of our services are performed with the utmost care and attention, ensuring that your new outdoor structure looks fantastic and lasts you for many years to come. These are just some of the areas in which we can help you.


    Carports are outdoor structures that provide shelter for vehicles. They’re built to the same exacting standards as our pergolas and can be designed with roof vents, ceiling fans and wiring for lighting and appliances.


    A deck adds value to your home while providing you with a place to relax, entertain guests or even grow plants and vegetables! We’ve been building decks of all shapes and sizes for many years; we know how to make them look good while also ensuring that they’ll stand up well to regular use.

    Eavestroughs & Downpipes

    We offer complete gutter services, from installing brand new aluminium gutters on your home to removing existing eavestroughs before replacing them with high-quality materials such as copper or PVC.


    Patios are an essential part of any summertime celebration, and we can help you to create a functional patio that will match the style of your home.


    Jumping into a chilly pool when all you want is to relax isn’t exactly the definition of enjoyable. That’s why many Newcastle homeowners install pool heaters. And anyone who has an electric pool heater installed knows that it consumes a whole lot of power. Thankfully, there’s a more cost-effective alternative available – solar pool heaters!


    Verandahs are a great way to expand your living space in an aesthetically pleasing way. Verandahs provide shade and can also be used as space for entertainment.

    Benefits of having a pergola on your property

    Pergolas are important to the design and aesthetic of any type of structure. They can be used inside or outside to provide additional living space, an open-air entranceway, shade for your lawn, pool deck or patio, flowering vines growing over them etc.
    The big advantage of having a pergola is that you can extend your entertaining outdoor area all year round. If you live in warmer climates like Queensland, where there are no four seasons, it offers the opportunity to stay outside even during the winter months when it’s cooler. If you already have an existing aluminium pergola, then adding hardwood decking will change its appearance without losing any functionality. You can also add decorative LED lighting into your pergola posts, making nighttime entertaining very special.

    Cleaning and maintenance of your pergola

    Cleaning a pergola can be a difficult task. Depending on how high it is, you may need a ladder to scrub the top areas, which can be dangerous. For smaller maintenance jobs, it’s best to use a pressure cleaner with a trigger handle. This way, you can spray from all angles without climbing anything. If your pergola has been built correctly with marine-grade materials like aluminium and hardwood, then cleaning shouldn’t damage it as long as you don’t power wash any lower than half height of the post.
    If your pergola hasn’t been cleaned for some time or if there’s moss growing in those hard to reach places, you might want to consider using bleach. A diluted mixture of 20:1 (water: bleach) should do the job nicely.

    FAQs About Pergolas in the Sunshine Coast Area

    Does a pergola need a building permit?

    In short, no. However, there are certain restrictions in most localities with regards to a height above fence level, so you should check these before starting your project.

    Can my pergola have a roof?

    It is recommended that you do so immediately after construction if you are adding a roof to your pergola. This will prevent moss and other nasty stuff from growing in the gaps between the rafters of the open pergola. It also makes cleaning up much easier. You can either use wooden slats or roll out pre-cut corrugated iron sheets.

    How much does a pergola cost?

    The cost of building a pergola will vary depending on the materials you plan to use. Generally, cedar is considered to be more expensive than pine, but it is also more durable and looks better with age.

    Can I build my own pergola?

    Yes. If you are confident in your building abilities, this is a very cost-effective way to do things. However, if you are new to DIY projects, it might be wise to get some professional advice first or hire an experienced builder.

    Do I need to build posts under my deck if there's no floor to connect it to?

    No. Decks should not touch the ground. They should rest on a foundation, such as gravel or a concrete pad.

    How many posts do I need under a deck?

    There are no hard and fast rules for this question, but having at least four posts along each side of your deck is recommended to provide adequate support. You may need additional posts in the middle if your deck is very long or extra high off the ground.

    What can Pergolas Sunshine Coast offer me?

    We specialize in designing and building pergolas, carports, verandahs, awnings, eaves, patios etc. Our company strives to build quality decks that will last a lifetime while keeping our prices affordable for all budgets!

    What factors affect the price of a pergola?

    The size and height of your pergola will affect the price, but these are minor details when it comes to pricing. The major determinants of the cost will be material, posts, beams, brackets and labour.
