Pergola & Canopies
Pergola & Canopies
Pergola is part of Ultraframe's breathtaking new outdoor living range. It can be used to create a stunning, contemporary patio area, allowing you to enjoy the outdoor whilst protecting you from the elements.
This fusion of engineering excellence with contemporary design is reinforced by the aluminium posts being part of the immensely robust structure, whilst also fulfilling the function of a rainwater downpipe to drain water away from the building.
The Ultraframe Pergola is glazed with 6mm glass which delivers the outdoor feel of the classic pergola style, whilst protecting from the rain.
Contemporary in design and functional in use, helping you to enjoy the outdoors. The Pergola is available in 9 sizes and two distinctive colours: White or Textured Grey.
Can I use a Pergola as a Carport?
A carport is a valuable addition to any home. It protects your car from the elements but at a fraction of the cost of building a garage. A carport gives your car extra protection from harsh weather as well as from bird lime, which can be damaging to the paintwork of your car. In addition to providing shelter for your car, a large car port can be used for storing outdoor items such as garden furniture or bicycles.
One of the simplest ways of creating a carport is to use a pergola. One of the advantages of a ready made pergola is that all the parts you need are provided ready to put together, whereas building a carport from scratch requires a good standard of carpentry or metalwork skills and tools which many people don’t have.
Everything you need for your pergola is provided, from the wall plate to the end stops for the curved beams. Ultraframe pergolas are simple to erect, but if you prefer not to install the pergola yourself we have an approved installer network covering the whole of the UK and we will be very happy to provide details of the recommended installers in your area.
You will not usually require planning permission for a carport unless your home is a listed building. However, you are advised to check with your local planning department before any work on the carport commences.
Pergolas are high quality structures, built to last. Creating a stylish carport from an Pergola will both prolong the life of your car’s exterior and add value to your property.
