Pergolas are all about enjoying the sunshine while remaining protected from harsh UV rays.

We’ve got you covered whether you’re relaxing around the pool watching the kids enjoy the water, or wanting to create a functional feature for your amazing garden.


How much does a pergola cost?

The cost of your new pergola will vary greatly, depending on things like the chosen materials, the size, and the complexity of the installation. Your Stramit Outdoor distributor can talk you through all costs involved specific to your design.

Do I need planning permission to build a pergola?

It's likely that your new pergola will need council approval – however what this looks like exactly can vary depending on the size, height, decking or flooring type used and location on your site. Your Stramit Outdoor distributor can help get this sorted.

Will a pergola increase the value of my home?

Yes, in many cases a pergola may increase the value of your home. It’s a great way of adding a functional and beautiful garden feature, and can make your home more attractive to potential future buyers.

Is it cheaper to build your own pergola?

It can be cheaper to purchase a pergola kit and build it yourself, however we recommend this should only be done by experienced installers. If you’ve got the DIY skills needed and want to do your own installation, talk to your Stramit Outdoor distributor about a pergola kit option.

What size should a pergola be?

Your pergola should ideally complement your home and fit your garden or outdoor space, and will need to be big enough to accommodate any furniture, or items such as BBQs. Beyond that, it’s up to you and what size you need to create your happy place.

Are your pergola made with genuine Australian steel?

Yes, we use COLORBOND® steel, and materials roll-formed in Australia by Stramit. Customisations or accessories may vary in origin – talk to your local Stramit Outdoor distributor if you’ve got any questions about your exact design.

Can I build my own pergola?

You can choose to install your own pergola, but we strongly recommend only doing this if you’re suitably qualified. Otherwise, Stramit Outdoor distributors work with experienced installers ready to build your happy place for you.

How do I design my pergola?

Getting started on your design for a pergola is easy – even if you’ve only got a vague idea, you can simply chat to your local Stramit Outdoor distributor and they’ll help you out. Things to keep in mind include the size, style, colours and materials you’re after – and most importantly, what your happy place looks like, whether that’s a family BBQ space, relaxing getaway spot or a stunning new feature for your garden.

You can also use our Stramit Outdoor Designer App to play with design options, and visualise what you’re getting before you put your money down. Available on Apple and Google Play, or on the web here.

How do I maintain my pergola?

Maintaining your new pergola is straightforward and low effort. We use quality Australian products that are built to last. However, there are some simple steps you should take in order to care for some materials, such as COLORBOND® steel. You can read more about care and maintenance tips here.
