What is outdoor living?

Outdoor living has been a "hot topic" in the past few years. The warmer temperatures and hot summer months have made us all long for more shade, but also more comfort in our own garden. Outdoor living can be described as wanting to live more outside. It's about creating a space outside where you can relax and invest time in your favorite hobby. Whether this is wellness, swimming or simply enjoying some me-time. Everyone fills this out with their own personal preferences.

Maximize your outdoor living experience with a patio cover

What do patio covers or pergolas have to do with outdoor living? The answer is simple: patio covers provide you with all the comfort you need to spend time outdoors. Pergolas protect you from the sun, but also offer protection against wind and a drop of rain.

What exactly is a patio cover or pergola?

A patio cover is a construction that literally covers your patio. Depending on the purpose of your roof, you choose where you want to place it. This can be directly attached to the house, or stand-alone in the garden. Terrace roofing exists in different materials, the two most popular ones being wood and aluminum.

What are the advantages of an aluminum patio cover?

Aluminum is a light, yet robust material and is known for its long lifespan. A nice advantage is that aluminum resists dirt well, making it very low maintenance. An aluminum pergola has a sleek and luxurious look with extensive opportunities for personalization: choose the color, dimensions, and options of your pergola.ย

Which patio cover should I choose?

At Brustor, we distinguish three types of patio covers:

  • Pergola with tiltable louvers
  • Pergola with tiltable louvers that can slide open
  • Pergola with a sliding fabric roof

Each type of canopy has its advantages and disadvantages. With a louvered roof, you tilt the louvers into the right position to enjoy the perfect amount of sun or shade. With a fabric roof, you can choose full incidence of light by sliding the roof open, or full shade by closing the roof. Pergolas with tiltable louvers that can slide openย offer the best of both worlds.

What types of canopies does Brustor offer?

Brustor is a manufacturer of durable, aluminum pergolas with a sleek and modern design. All screws, cables, and other disturbing elements are hidden as much as possible for a sleek and contemporary look. The structure of the canopies is also designed to be as slim and elegant as possible. Brustor offers the perfect solution for the outdoor lover: terrace roofs produced to measure for your home and wishes.

To help you find your way around our range of covers, we have drawn up the following diagram.
