WINCHESTER, Va., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The backyard just got a bit more colorful. Based on popular demand, Trex® Pergola™ kits will now be offered in a variety of rich, luxurious colors to complement any outdoor living space.
"Pergolas continue to increase in popularity as design options for decks, patios and gardens, and consumers and professionals alike will now be provided with a broad range of colors, styles and sizes to create completely customized outdoor living spaces," said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. "Trex Pergola kits offer the same combination of superior durability and aesthetics as our core product line and are yet another opportunity to enhance one's backyard."
New Colors and Styles
Trex Pergola kits are manufactured by Fredericksburg, Va.-based Backyard America through a trademark licensing agreement with Trex Company, and are available in nine rich finishes that coordinate seamlessly with high-performance Trex decking and railing – including White, Charcoal Black, Gravel Path (a pristine grey), Tree House (a warm earth tone), Fire Pit (a spicy red), Vintage Lantern (a deep burnished bronze), Rope Swing (a light taupe), Beach Dune (a warm honey brown) and Clam Shell (a deep charcoal).
For even more design options, homeowners may select a combination of finishes or choose custom paint tinting to match any desired color. Backyard America offers a ColorLast™ finishing process that ensures superior performance under extreme temperatures and is highly resistant to scratching and chipping. For additional peace-of-mind, the ColorLast finish is protected by a 20-year warranty that covers cracking, peeling and blistering.
Trex Pergola kits also feature an expanded selection of fiberglass columns to complement a wide variety of architectural styles. Columns are available in round tapered, square and square with decorative base designs in two different heights. Each Trex Pergola may be installed freestanding or attached to a structure, and each may be finished with a retractable or fixed canopy for customized levels of shade and privacy.
Superior Durability Meets Easy Installation
Selected as a 2012 "Best New Product" by Professional Builder magazine, Trex Pergolas are constructed of an aluminum core wrapped in genuine TrexTrim® for superior strength and long-lasting durability.
Designed to meet the demands of any residential or commercial environment, Trex Pergolas require minimal maintenance and will never rot, split or fade. In fact, they are in compliance with the stringent 2010 Florida Building Code 160 MPH Exposure "C" requirements – meaning they will hold up under the force of 160 mile per hour winds in an open environment.
Installation of a Trex Pergola is easy, and each kit includes all the pre-cut components and hardware necessary. Trex Pergolas also feature an exclusive TensionRod™ mounting system designed to provide a secure foundation for each column while being simple to install.
"The beauty and durability of TrexTrim provides a superior finish for our high quality line of residential and commercial Trex Pergola kits," said Ernie Sears, president and CEO of Backyard America. "By expanding the various colors, styles and components available, we're able to help each homeowner create a personal outdoor oasis that is both low-maintenance and high-performance."
