Create your own private beach club, an exclusive sanctuary. The Malibu pergola will give you privacy and shade from the sun’s harsh rays. With a full canvas shade cover, you’ll love your yard again. The Malibu pergola is created from premium vinyl and is maintenance free. All of New England Arbors' products are manufactured by molding premium, hi-grade polymers around traditional structural elements to create the classic look of wood without the traditional maintenance. In other words, you get the classic look of wood without the headaches. Just the occasional rinse with a garden hose is all you’ll need to do to keep your pergola looking great year after year. We back this up with a 20 year warranty on your Malibu pergola itself and 2 years on the canvas shade. The Malibu Pergola requires a drill, level, ladder, measuring tape, and two people to assemble. For installation on a wood deck or concrete patio, use our hassle-free Bolt Down Bracket System (purchase separately). For an in-ground installation, you can extend the posts with pressure treated lumber wood inserts purchased from your local hardware store. Our detailed instructions give you all the information you need to install and mount your pergola. This pergola ships in 5 boxes. Please note, pressure treated wood, concrete and additional hardware is required for proper installation.
