A pergola is a patio structure with either an open or covered roof. It is supported by posts or columns, and the sides are usually open, allowing the breeze to pass through. Wooden pergolas are an attractive solution for patios or walkway, creating a welcoming shaded oasis in your garden.
If you are looking for a trellis covered patio, a pergola may be the answer. Patio shade structures allow you to relax outdoors comfortably, even in the summer heat. On the hottest days, an outdoor patio structure is a welcome relief from the sun. Having access to pergola shade allows your family to enjoy outdoor living in comfort, safe from harmful UV rays. Convertible trellis construction gives you the flexibility to leave the patio open or covered, depending on your preference.
The functionality of outdoor covered pergolas is limitless. Wood patio shade structures not only protect your family from the sun, but they provide privacy as well. A pergola creates the perfect atmosphere for reading and relaxing or entertaining friends. Outdoor garden structures increase property value, too. Pergolas are also a great way to lead guests from your pool, hot tub or tennis court to your barbecue pit or outdoor dining area. Our trellis experts will make the transition seamless.
Whether you desire a shaded patio or seating area, our custom pergolas are built to last. Pergola construction is best left to professional builders to ensure your family’s safety.

We have wood patio shade structures of all kinds, but you may also choose metal or a combination of the two. Canvas tops may also be added to shield from the elements. Cloth shades vary in thickness, allowing you to control how much sunlight passes through. Keep in mind an open roof allows air to pass through, and thus may be cooler than some covered pergolas.
Small pergolas can act as garden accents or add visual appeal to empty spaces on the property. Large pergolas are great for seating areas and entertaining.
Pergolas and patio covers are terms that may be used interchangeably, but a patio cover isn’t freestanding like most pergolas. While pergolas can be attached to the home’s exterior, they are usually freestanding structures. Unlike patio covers, a freestanding pergola is a versatile solution for homeowners who do not want to make permanent additions to their home in order to enjoy a covered patio.
