Are patios and pergolas different?

Patios and pergolas are technically different, however people generally use the two interchangeably when describing either a patio or pergolas.

Here at Trueline, we define these two as separate products, both of which we can construct depending on your requirements for your outdoor area.

What are patios?

We define Patios as a non-pervious roofing structure that has an attached gutter that takes water away.
This engineered structure usually consists of posts, beams, gutters, downpipes and roofing that is made from steel or aluminium.

Patios are our most popular product for keeping out the elements and bringing the indoors, outside.

What are pergolas?

Pergolas are primarily non-roofed outdoor structures and are used as an architectural type structure to enhance your outdoor area where complete sun and rain protection is not required.

Pergolas are usually constructed from aluminium posts and beams with a few options for shade cover including laser cut screening, aluminium battens or shade cloth.

These are a great option for beside a garden bed, so plants and vines can be grown to cover the pergola or constructed close to or adjacent to a property boundary where a roofed structure is not permitted.
