When customers ask us for ideas about adding the most elegant finishing touch to their backyard patios or entertainment space, we tell them to consider these 5 reasons for a Houston Pergola:

Five Perfectly Good Reasons to add a Pergola in Houston

  1. Increased home value: Installing a Houston Pergola adds the finishing touch to any backyard patio or outdoor area used for entertainment. It enhances your property with a classic architectural feature that has provided homeowners with cool, comfortable shade since ancient times.
  2. Extended living space: A Houston Pergola creates an outdoor living room that is protected from the elements by a cover of interconnecting beams that allow fresh air, sunlight as well as shade to offer protection throughout the day as well as a comfortable covering at night.
  3. Enhanced garden appeal for your backyard: It is very easy to grow vines and other greenery on a Houston Pergola to create a living canopy of plants and blooming flowers under which you, your family members and friends can dine, relax or simply enjoy some peace and quiet in the great outdoors. We can also install smaller Pergolas over walkways and entrances.
  4. Create a shaded retreat: How often has full sunlight and temperature made it impossible for you to sit outdoors at your home for more than a few minutes? A Houston Pergola creates just the right amount of shaded protection so that you can enjoy being outdoors without fear of sunburn. Pergolas also help to lower the temperature when seated under their protection.
  5. Create shelter for outdoor furniture: It's a hassle to pull your outdoor furnishings indoors every night and every time it rains. A Pergola adds years of use to your favorite outdoor chairs, tables and chaise lounges by protecting them from the damaging effects of UV rays.
