Perfect for Bringing the Indoors Out

Outdoor pergolas can be fully or partially covered and help expand your outdoor living space, making it more functional and allowing for year-round use. They can also add character to your backyard and make the space feel more like a cozy living room. Fully covered backyard pergolas add comfort to your outdoor living space by providing shade on even the hottest days and keeping rain and snow off of the area it covers. This way, you’re able to enjoy spending time outdoors even during less-than-ideal weather conditions. Because outdoor spaces are generally open, it can be difficult to section off different areas for different purposes. Custom pergolas can be designed to cover a certain area and define a space, such as a seating area or an outdoor dining room.

Pergola FAQs
What is the difference between a pergola and a gazebo?

Backyard pergolas are open-air structures that can either be free-standing or attached to the side of a home. Most outdoor pergolas feature a flat or peaked roof. Gazebos, on the other hand, are enclosed structures with open sides and a cone-shaped roof.

What are pergolas used for?

Pergolas are used to create a shaded outdoor living space. They are often attached to the side of a home and extend out over a patio. Outdoor pergolas can also be free-standing and installed in gardens and other outdoor spaces as a decorative yet functional element.

Do I need a permit to build a pergola?

Often a pergola does not require a building permit, but code requirements, zoning laws and HOA ordinances vary by location. Please check regulatory requirements in your area before beginning any project.
