Also known as an arbor, a pergola is an increasingly popular feature for decks, backyards, and patios due to its appealing design and the shade produced by the crossbeams and added foliage. Pergola and patio covers can serve as an extension of a building, as protection or coverage for an open terrace, or as a link between your home and unattached garage.
As a pergola contractor, we can install pergolas of all kinds, including attached pergolas, freestanding pergolas, and garden arbors. We also have the latest in pergola technology called operable pergolas. With this innovative design, roof panels of the motorized pergola open and close with just the touch of a button. Is rain putting a damper on your BBQ? Close the roofing panels to form the solid roof. Touch the button again when the sunshine returns.
Reasons to Install a Patio or Pergola Cover
It provides shade.
Do you want to enjoy a nice, sunny day outside without getting a sunburn? A patio cover can help you create a great place to hang out in the outdoors while being protected from direct sunlight. You can stay in its shade and relax in your yard.
It extends your living space.
Is your home feeling a bit cramped? Why don’t you extend your living area by adding a pergola or patio cover? These features help create new spaces where you can do your daily activities. Think of it as an additional room in the outdoors. You can put a couch and a few chairs to create a lounge area or a dining table set to make a new lunch or dinner hangout.
It’s a great space for entertaining guests
Homeowners often use their yard or patio as a place to entertain guests. However, outdoor gatherings may be disrupted by a change in the weather. But if the area has a patio cover, the event can go on even if the atmospheric conditions are not especially remarkable.
