Because all our Weatherguard Pergolas are made from durable, aircraft grade aluminum and electrostatically powder-coated they will not rot, mold, mildew or be susceptible to insect damage, unlike typical wood pergolas on the market. And the best part is Cardinal Architectural extrudes, powder-coats and fabricates all our components and finishes right here at home in the USA. We would love to work with you to design your new dream space.
