The pergola process

Aligola. Transforming outdoor areas into living spaces.

  • So you want some shelter over your outdoor area?
  • Have a deck you need covered?
  • Want to be able to use the BBQ even if there's a chance of rain?
  • Need a carport built?

Aligola has some of the best value awnings, pergolas and outdoor covers in NZ.

Whether it's a conservatory, patio cover, canopy, carport, free standing pergola, or gazebo. Whatever you call it, we can do it!

We have done installations in Auckland, Waihi and everywhere in-between.

Want something wooden? No problem. Prefer a more modern and sleek look? Sure. We're happy working with aluminium or timber. We can supply and install aluminium structures similar to Archgola, at a lot lower cost.

It's amazing the difference a well-built pergola or awning will make. By far the most common comment we get is: "it makes that outdoor area so much more useable!"

People feel like they're living in a bigger house after getting one of these installed.

So get in touch with us today and let's transform that outdoor space.

What types of installation or structures do you do?

We can custom build your outdoor cover, after consultation with you. Whether it's a pitched or gabled roof, a flat or profiled sheet, free-standing, or attached to your home or building.

Have a chat with Bruce and see what he can do for you. He has a wealth of experience and will be able to provide advice on what may work best in your outdoor space.

Providing outdoor shade and protection from the sun, UV rays, hail, wind, snow, and anything else!

Do I need a consent?

This depends on a number of things. We recommend checking with your local council before starting work. As a general rule, you can build a covered structure of up to 20m2 without needing a consent or permit, but there are restrictions on this!

Here is some great info from Auckland council regarding general building projects:

What else can you add to the structure?

We have a whole range of accessories, whether you want to enclose it some more, or just make it look prettier.

Outdoor blinds are a great way to close off some, or all, sides. Stopping wind and rain from coming in and making it a cosy place despite the weather.

Soft rubber flooring to go over concrete (or anything hard really) can help transform it into a comfy outdoor area.

Adjustable louvres or slats are a good way to let in a cool breeze when necessary, but close off when it starts to get wild.

What should I do now?
