Backyard Pergolas

Professional Builds For Your Perfect Outdoor Space

Pergolas Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space

A pergola is an outdoor structure consisting of columns or posts that support a series of crossbeams and an open roof framework. It provides an inviting and functional addition to a backyard space. Homeowners use pergolas for various reasons. Firstly, they offer shade and protection from the sun, creating a comfortable outdoor living area. The open-roof design allows for the gentle play of sunlight and creates a sense of openness while still providing relief from direct sunlight.

Secondly, pergolas serve as an architectural element that enhances the aesthetics of the outdoor space. They can be adorned with climbing vines, such as wisteria or jasmine, adding natural beauty and fragrance. Additionally, pergolas provide a framework for hanging plants, lights, or outdoor curtains, allowing homeowners to personalize the space and create a cozy, intimate ambiance.

Pergola vs. Veranda vs. Gazebo vs. Ramada

Homeowners often ask us "What are the different types of outdoor roofing structures we can use for our backyard?" The answer to that is "many different kinds". A few of them include pergolas (like we've mentioned), but other less-known options are Verandas, Ramadas, Gazebos, and Pavillions.

Pergolas are comprised of posts with a slotted roof, that can stand independent of other structures around it.

Gazebos stand on their own also. Usually these are smaller structures that sit in a garden or other open area, housing swings, chairs, small tables, and such.

Verandas are more commonly used as typical awnings - attaching to the side of your home and are usually 100% covered (no openings).

Ramadas and Pavillions are very similiar in their structure and application. They usually have 4 posts, made of brick, stone, or concrete, and a full roof sitting on top. These structures are mostly seen as a separate "building" in a backyard, where they can have electricity, water, AC, full furniture sets, and more.
