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, for more comfort in our own garden. Outdoor Living can be described as wanting to live more outside. It's about creating an outdoor space, where you can relax and invest time in your favorite hobby. Whether that is wellness, swimming, or simply enjoying some me-time. Everyone fills this out with their own personal preferences, and it's healthy too! Keep that vitamin D coming.

Maximize your Outdoor Living experience with a patio cover

What do patio covers have to do with Outdoor Living? Well, the answer is simple: patio covers provide you with all the comfort you need to spend time in the outdoors. Patio covers protect you not only from the sun, but also from the wind and the rain.

What exactly is a patio cover?

A patio cover is a construction that covers your patio. Depending on the purpose of your patio roof, you choose where you want to place it: attached to the house or freestanding in the garden. Patio covers exist in different materials; the two most popular ones being wood and aluminum. Brustor is a manufacturer of aluminium patio covers.

What are the advantages of aluminium pergolas?

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

Which patio cover should I choose?

At Brustor, we distinguish four types of patio covers:

Each type of canopy has its advantages and disadvantages. With an aluminium louvered pergola, you tilt the louvers into the right position to enjoy the perfect amount of sun or shade. With a retractable fabric roof, you can choose between full incidence of light (by sliding the roof open) or full shade (by closing the roof). And louvered retractable pergolas offer the best of both worlds: the louvers can both tilt and slide open.

Glass roof pergolas are new in the Brustor range and increase the possibilities of use enormously. A fully fixed roof can be used as a carport, for example, and with a combined glass and louvered roof, you could create a shed. At the same time, you enjoy all the advantages that a louvered roof offers.

What types of patio covers 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 patio covers is also designed to be as slim and elegant as possible. Brustor offers the perfect solution for the outdoor lover: patio covers produced to measure up to your home and wishes.
