Choose Your Shade level

Our angled shade system on the pergola’s open roof allows for 50%, 75% or 90% shade patterns, while most others only provide 20-30%. Our team members can help you orient your pergola in the correct direction to maximize your shade coverage. The internal aluminum reinforcements allow for easy add-on drop shades or privacy paneling between posts. Don’t need shade? Contact one of our team members and get those pieces removed for a reduced price.

A Pergola with Actual Shade

Many pergolas serve as decoration only, providing nothing but rafters or flat slats or a lattice top that really don’t provide you with shade. The roof structure of a Heartland Pergola creates shade. It is designed with angled purlins that are designed to actually block the sun, providing you with relief from the heat and direct sunlight.

High-Strength Aluminum Reinforcement

Every Heartland Pergola features a rust-proof, ultra-strong, weather resistant aluminum frame that runs throughout the entire pergola. This means the full length of each post and the full length of all structural profiles (beams & rafters) of your pergola have fully extruded lifetime warranty aluminum pieces inside of the vinyl sleeves. Our pergola kits will not rot, sag or crack over time unlike wooden pergolas or wood inserts.

Many people think they’re getting a deal by purchasing a really affordable wood pergola (or vinyl pergola with wood inside) only to find out in a few years their pergola is now cracking and sagging in various places.

Low Maintenance

The durable vinyl exterior of your Heartland Pergola will maintain its beauty for years to come. No painting is required, just simply hose it down with soap and water as needed. Check out tips for care and cleaning here.

Light Weight

Because our pergolas are made with aluminum and vinyl they are relatively light weight, with no single piece over 50lbs, making it easy to move all parts into place for construction. The overall structure weight is also a fraction of that of a solid wood pergola allowing you to secure your pergola to your deck without additional support beams or structural reinforcement!

Easy Installation

We have designed our vinyl pergola kits to be a one-and-done installation. Whether you’re a novice DIYer or choose to hire a professional contractor, your pergola will likely be ready to enjoy at the end of day one. We have a great written installation guide and an even better YouTube video installation series that mimics each step of the install guide with short, to-the-point videos showing you how to complete your install. See this example below of how our rafters attach to the beams!
