Contractors Create Perfect Pergolas using AZEK Trim and Mouldings that Blur the Lines between Indoor and Outdoor Rooms

SCRANTON, Pa., March 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Outdoor living is not what it used to be as patios, decks and outdoor living areas have undergone a transformation known today as the "outdoor room." This trend is bringing the design, beauty and comforts of the indoors to the outdoors while adding extra elements such as outdoor kitchens and even unique pergolas.

AZEK Trim and Mouldings are an excellent choice for this popular movement with low-maintenance and long lasting durability that enhances these custom amenities. However, a pergola isn't always just a decorative element. It can act as an invisible wall and ceiling for these outdoor rooms by filtering out too much sun and providing a subliminal division between functional areas.

"We find that our clients are bringing much more of the interior of the home to the exterior now, and why not?" said Steve Gray, owner of Steve Gray Renovations in Indianapolis. "With products such as AZEK Trim and Mouldings, we are able to build structures that will far outlast the home in some cases." Gray also has clients in high-wind areas and he is not only able to fabricate pergolas, but he also makes versatile, easy open and close wind shutters out of AZEK Trim to provide functional beauty so the homeowners can grill outside with ease.

Zarrilli Homes in Bricktownship, NJ, often creates AZEK-trimmed gazebos and pergolas as the backdrop for an outdoor kitchen. One recent project included a large island, stove, refrigerator and a partially enclosed area with large flat screen TV. According to Anthony Zarrilli, President, Zarrilli Homes, LLC, "My customers are always interested in having a beautiful outdoor living area, but they also want it to be a space that will keep its beauty with minimal maintenance. They don't want to worry about the work to maintain wood. With AZEK Trim, I can craft unique pergolas that my customers won't have to worry about rotting or decaying."

As more homeowners opt for the great outdoors for daily living and entertaining, low maintenance AZEK Trim and Moulding provides solutions that replace traditional wood so homeowners can dream about, and contractors can build, the perfect pergolas, pavilions, outdoor kitchens and more.
