    Pergolas and Translucent Roofing Guide & Inspiration

    Create more space with pergolas and translucent roofing

    Quick links: Projects Our Range Popular Products

    Kiwis love outdoor living, and a pergola can extend your deck to enhance your home. A pergola frames your space, makes a statement, and can provide year-round protection - as well as lots of entertaining possibilities. Wooden pergolas can also be used in landscaping to form a shaded pathway or to support vines or roses. To protect your outdoor space in all weather, your pergola can be turned into a veranda with translucent roofing to allow the light in and the rain out. Flat or corrugated, these lightweight roofing systems bring years of outdoor enjoyment while protecting your family from New Zealand’s harmful UV rays.

    Whatever pergola design you’re going for; classic, rustic, recycled or industrial, PlaceMakers have a range of wooden and aluminium pergolas and translucent roofing to complete the project and bring resort-like comfort to your outdoor space.

    Looking to create your ultimate outdoor living area? We can help with that.

    Explore now:


    Pergolas can be made from solid treated timber posts and beams, or laminated pine timber for extra strength and straightness. Or, for that quintessential rural look, choose Macrocarpa with all its knots and character. Hardwoods, whether recycled railway sleepers or sustainably harvested Kwila, are another way to add rugged beauty to your project. Or, for an ultra-modern sleek look, choose an aluminium pergola, powder-coated to colour-match your home.

    Translucent Roofing

    Let the light in but keep the UV and the rain out. Our translucent roofing range extends from SunTuf corrugated polycarbonate roofing to fluted or flat Suntuf Twinwall, right through to the glass-like profiles of SunGlaze and ClearVue that give you that glass look without the cost. If you prefer your outdoor space to be more open, choose a louvre system with automatic rain-sensing technology.
