Types of Pergolas

Our pergolas are beautifully crafted, for an elegant addition to any home. Each of our three available column styles is inspired by the history born in some of Italy’s greatest centers of architectural achievements: Rome, Florence and Venice. Combining the classic style of Italian architecture with state-of-the-art building materials, an attached pergola will add both beauty and value to your home.

Our pergolas require no annual upkeep and will stay beautiful for years to come. As a professional pergola contractor in Eastern Iowa, we stand by the quality of our work by providing a transferable lifetime warranty.

Types of Pergolas

Attached Pergola

Attaching a Pergola to your home is a great way to extend the living space of your home with a shaded patio area. Whether you want to create an outdoor living space that complements your family’s swimming pool or you’re looking for a partial shade product to create the perfect setting for outdoor cookouts, our attached pergolas are sure to be a welcome addition to your home.

Detached Pergola
If you’re looking to add some shaded space elsewhere in your yard or some architectural interest to your garden, a free-standing metal pergola is a unique idea for. Crafted from heavy-duty, fully extruded aluminum, our free standing pergolas feature superior strength and are able to retain a like-new appearance throughout the years. The curved lattice fits into the beam construction with a snap-fit design, which requires no unsightly screws.

Operable Pergola
Operable pergolas function as a traditional pergola when you want sunshine, and also as a solid roof when you want more protection from the elements.

While traditional pergolas come equipped with fixed slatted roofs, our louvered pergolas offer the benefit of automated movable roofs, allowing you to control the amount of sunlight or shade your patio or deck receives. When the weather is nice and you want to enjoy sunshine and views of the sky, the structure functions a true pergola. Then, when the sunshine becomes too intense or it starts to rain, you’ll be able to turn on a simple motor to close the roof completely, forming a solid roof cover.

Our adjustable pergolas include slow-motion actuator motors that effortlessly open and close the roofing panels with the push of a button. The power cable for the motor is hidden inside an electrical raceway to ensure your structure has a clean, streamlined appearance.

Our motorized pergolas are constructed from heavy-gauge extruded aluminum, with extruded louvers that have been designed with a return lip to better channel the flow of rainwater so there’s no need to worry about post-rain dripping issues.
