Hey There,

Trying to decide between a wood or aluminum pergola in Austin. Hot sun and bugs are a concern. I like the look of wood, but also concerned about maintenance. I’m leaning towards a black color (slightly more modern look).

Any feedback or experience with choosing the best pergola material is appreciated!

Take Care,

D
