Outdoor living is an important part of life in NZ, but our strong sun and unpredictable weather can often send us running indoors. Pergolas, awnings and sunshades are some of the best tools we have to battle the elements and follow our Kiwi instincts to enjoy the great outdoors to the fullest.
At Undercover Industries in Mount Maunganui, our attractive and sturdy pergolas make it easy to get outside every chance you get – here are five of the top reasons that locals are falling in love with our pergolas.
1. Enhance Your Outdoor Entertainment Area
If you love hosting dinner parties and BBQs, a pergola is for you. By building one of our aluminium awnings, you will have an effortless entertainment area to use come sun, wind or rain. Our pergolas allow for shaded seating that acts like an extension of your dining room, letting you enjoy more space – and fresh air – while gathered around with family and friends.
2. Stay Safe and Comfortable in Summer
One of the hardest parts of Kiwi summers is the sun’s harsh rays – if we weren’t worried about sunburns and heat exhaustion we’d be outside far more often. Adding an awning to your house allows you and your family to enjoy the warmth of summer without roasting. You can relax under the shade of a pergola with 99.9% UV Protection enjoying the sea breeze and a cool drink, without feeling like you have to escape indoors to the A/C, or the harsh UV rays.
3. Beautiful Backyards
Our pergolas in and of themselves are striking features that play a big role in creating attractive backyards that complement well landscaped sections. Enhance your backyard’s beauty further and insert your very own personality into the shaded space by filling it with hanging lights, potted plants and vines and furniture that will remain protected at the same time.
4. Additional Privacy
Let’s face it, even houses in Tauranga designed by architects have many great traits, but privacy is not always one of them. Real estate across the region is valuable, which means that our houses are often close together and you can feel like you’re eating dinner with your neighbours. Pergolas offer privacy, and you can enhance this feeling of personal space by dressing up your awnings with Ziptrak outdoor blinds, hedging, potted plants or privacy screens.
5. Increase Your Home’s Value
Beautiful landscaping most certainly adds value to homes in NZ, and pergolas are an easy and affordable way to enhance your outdoor area. For all the reasons listed above, our sturdy and well-built awnings will not only increase your indoor-outdoor flow right now, but they’ll also be an asset when the time comes to sell your house. Let’s face it, Kiwis love the outdoors – so why not create a space that allows the outdoor area usable all year round.
