All You Need to Know About Pergolas

Pergolas are quickly gaining popularity again, and many people aren’t sure what they are or why they’re popular. If you’re curious and want to understand these awesome structures, here are the top things to know about pergolas!

What Are Pergolas?

Pergolas are structures made of columns that support a roof that’s often made of rafters and beams. They’re most often used in back yards to help fight away the sun and heat while adding aesthetic beauty to the yard. Although they can be more complex, the basic ones are made of wood beams and are outfitted to work with whatever structure they’re paired with.

What Can They Be Made of?

Although the most basic ones are made of wood, there are plenty of options now!  Besides wood, you can try aluminum, steel, fiberglass, PVC, and even vinyl. This large selection of materials allows you to create a structure that suits your home the best while also allowing them to be affordable for most budgets.

Can I Be Sure It Will Suit My Home?

Luckily, because of how varied pergolas are, ranging from freestanding to garage door pergolas: you can create one to suit any home. So regardless of your design tastes, the size of your home or yard, or what your HOA has in place: there’s a way to make one of these structures work for you.

The important thing is to try and either find a pergola kit that you can put together or work with a professional who can create a custom design for you.

Every Home Is Different, and Pergolas Help Show That

The right pergola can make your home stand out as yours, even if you’re in a neighborhood where most homes look similar. If you’re curious about more information about these awesome structures, check out the infographic on pergolas below!
