Our pergolas are designed for beautiful and functional outdoor living spaces. We can build customized pergolas for both residential and business purposes alike.
You can use pergolas in many ways. From common office space gathering areas to informal outdoor dinners or a fun backyard BBQ party with family and friends, a pergola makes a great addition to your outdoor space.
Our pergolas are constructed with a steel frame inside the wood to ensure a solid structure that will last for years to come. Other contractors may build their pergolas using wood alone, but this can erode and rot over time. Our team will ensure that your pergola is both sturdy and beautiful.
We’ll let you decide on the color of your pergola. We can use a natural wood tone, paint it white, or stain it. You dream it, we build it!
Benefits of a Pergola
A pergola is an archway commonly found in gardens, parks, and yards. It is made up of a framework of vertical posts that typically support cross beams and an open lattice ceiling. Sometimes, the posts and lattice of the pergola can support climbing plants.
If you are considering adding a pergola to your deck, here are some of the benefits you will enjoy.
Pergolas are beautiful.
Pergolas offer a unique beauty that surpasses that of most standard awnings. They have a very architectural design which reminds you of the Mediterranean. They help create visual interest in a plain, basic backyard.
There are several styles of pergolas, ranging from simple, modern designs to ornate, elaborate, and elegant structures. Furthermore, pergolas are well-loved by gardeners, because they provide a medium for displaying the beauty of plants.
Pergolas help plants.
Pergolas are not only beautiful on their own. They also lend support to other landscaping elements like climbing flowers, vines, and ivy. When you plant these flowers and vines in the right place, they’ll weave their way up the pergola’s supports and through the roof-like beams.
Consider plants such as wisteria, clematis, or even grape vines! You can even hang planters from the beams. Imagine a vast pergola teeming with vines and colorful flowers. Aside from adding vertical interest to your landscaping, it can provide a valuable visual link between you and your garden.
Pergolas define spaces.
A pergola can define your outdoor space. Since pergolas are open and airy, you can accomplish this without making the space feel smaller or more confined. The ground under the pergola is usually topped with some flooring, whether that’s brick flooring, concrete pavers, or even a deck. When you combine the flooring with the pergola’s pillars and beams, you can further define your outdoor living space.
Pergolas provide shade.
While pergolas look somewhat unfinished to the untrained eye, they do provide shade. The size of the beams and their spacing will determine exactly how much shade is provided, though a pergola on its own can never create a fully-shaded space. There are pros and cons to this.
Even if you aren’t receiving full shade, you can still see the sky and view the stars at night. If you want the space to be fully shaded, just add a fabric cover to the beams. You can also add shade to your pergola by installing a climbing plant with thick, lush leaves and blossoms.
Pergolas are affordable.
If you want to improve your outdoor space without spending a lot of money, a pergola might be the best solution. Pergolas are inexpensive and easy to build. Yet, they still have a big impact on your yard, especially if you add climbing flowers or other plants. While some options cost more than others, you can find an economical, beautiful, and durable pergola that can fit your budget.
Pergolas are durable and low maintenance.
For example, vinyl pergolas are durable and easy to maintain. You won’t have to worry about maintenance or deterioration. Vinyl pergolas don’t chip, peel, splinter, warp, rot, fade or become discolored. Unlike wood pergolas, they aren’t prone to termites and other wood-boring insects. They also don’t require annual staining or frequent maintenance.
