pergolas and patio covers

Your outdoor living space forms an extension of your home, aesthetically and physically. Patio or deck cover options allow you to entertain your guests all year round, despite the weather conditions.

They can provide enjoyment to you, as the homeowner, and give you an extension of your living space where you can entertain, read a book, or do just about anything you want to do.

Furthermore, by adding a pergola or patio cover, you enhance the aesthetic of your house and add value to your home.

The Difference Between A Pergola And Patio Covering

Patio covers provide roofs for your outdoor patio or deck to provide shade and protection from the elements. They can either be attached to the house or garage or be freestanding. Often, they are put in place to create a sense of an extension of the living space.

A patio cover will shelter your outdoor living area from the elements so that you can enjoy your days lounging comfortably on your patio or deck outside in the fresh air.

On the other hand, pergolas can be seen more as an aesthetically enhancing feature. They are large, open structures, with vertical posts supporting cross beams. They can be used to give an earthy and airy feel to your outdoor living space. The purpose of a pergola is to create space and definition.

Installing a pergola or patio cover can increase the value of your home and greatly enhance the your outdoor living space.

Benefits Of A Patio Cover

Pergolas can be decorated with fairy lights and plants. This helps bring a sense of beauty and freshness to your garden. These structures combine practicality with beauty so as to enhance your home.

A pergola is a great feature to help add a little extra something to your garden and give you a nice spot to relax in.
