A pergola is an extension of your living space. It makes outdoor living much interesting. While under a pergola, you are protected from direct sunlight, but you still get enough sunlight and enough air circulation to enjoy the outdoors. Do you need a pergola in your home? Allow us to design and build one for you to match the design of your home.
Why Does Your Home Need a Pergola?
Pergolas and porches are two structures that outdoor enthusiasts will love. Your pergola doesn’t have to be open if you need more protection from the sun and rain. Screened-in porches and pergolas and sunrooms with a protective screen are more protective, and they make your outdoor space more fun.
Extend Your Living Space
If you have a deck extending from your home, you may have added it because you needed more space to relax and engage in some outdoor activities such as outdoor grilling. If the sun is so hot on your deck, a pergola can help you escape the sun. With a pergola with a screen or screen porches, you can spend more time outside.
During installation, we ensure that the design of the pergola or porch is well-oriented so that it casts enough shade to make the afternoon more enjoyable. If you need more protection, you can have a retractable shade cover that gives you shade. There are shade covers strong enough to protect you from light rain showers. If you live in an area where you experience sudden summer storms, we recommend that you get retractable shower storms.
Several Designs to Choose From
Pergolas and extension porches are available as kits, but you can still customize one to the needs of your home. If you opt for a kit pergola, we can help install it for you. However, if you need a structure that fits the needs of your home, you can go for a custom design.
We can design your porch and pergola to look like the perfect extension of your home. If you go for a ready kit, you will not have the flexibility you need in terms of design. The dimensions are fixed, and you also have limited options in size.
Instead, let us design a pergola that meets your budget and your design preferences. If you have seen a pergola you like, we can help design one like it to meet and even exceed your expectations.
Choose the Right Materials
There are so many materials to consider when building porches and pergolas. Each of these materials has advantages and disadvantages, and it is up to you to pick one that meets your needs. Some of the options include:
• Pressure-Treated Wood is an affordable option. The wood, which in most cases is pine, will last for 15 or more years. Although it might warp or crack, it still meets your needs.
• Hardwood is more expensive than treated wood, but it lasts for many decades. The wood is natural resistant to insects, rot, and fire. You can stain it or paint it.
• Composite is another alternative when you need durability and low maintenance. Unlike hardwood, however, composites are more sustainable.
