With all of the sun that San Diego and Orange County get daily, having shade in your backyard is a must. One of the best ways to achieve that is with a custom built pergola. Pergolas are stand-alone features made to accent your patio or deck.
What is the difference between a pergola vs a gazebo? A pergola is square or rectangular in shape and is open in structure. A gazebo, on the other hand, is usually round or octagonal and may have a floor, walls, or seating built in.
Pergolas are also a great opportunity to incorporate plants into your patio or deck. Plants and vines can climb onto your pergola to give a unique look and additional shade to your outdoor living area.
We provide a number of different pergola options, ranging from alumawood pergolas, to gabled pergolas. If you are looking to improve the comfort and convenience of your backyard with a stylish pergola, contact us today.
Open Top Pergolas
Keep things traditional with an open top pergola. Typically made with wood, open top pergolas offer plenty of natural light and can be incorporated with plants and vines.
For a pergola that is resistant to cracking, warping, and rotting, consider an alumawood pergola. Alumawood pergolas have a textured wood grain finish and are termite-proof as well.
A sail pergola is another alternative to the traditional wood rafters. If desired, sail pergolas can be removed during the winter for more light and decreased wear and tear.
Improve the amount of shade in your backyard with a gabled pergola. The pitched roof on a gabled pergola allows for water runoff and sufficient shade for your patio or deck.
