Custom Pergola Builders

What is a Pergola?

Pergolas first gained popularity in Italy during the Renaissance to add shade and filtered sunlight to outdoor spaces. Today, they remain a popular outdoor space feature, and their simple yet elegant design can enhance the aesthetic of any landscaping. Pergolas are usually made from wood or metal and consist of vertical posts supporting horizontal beams. The beams are then covered with lattice work or cross rafters, which may be left open or fitted with fabric to provide additional shade. While pergolas can be freestanding structures, they are often attached to the side of a building or house. Whether used as a garden backdrop or to create an outdoor living space, pergolas are a versatile addition to any home.
