Pergolas are large, open outdoor structures often featured in gardens, large commercial patios or decks, or even park areas. These outdoor living structures can be either freestanding or attached to a building and have elements such as columns, beams, and rafters to support and shelter an area outside. Pergolas are used for shading, creating an outdoor living space, enhancing any outdoor structure with an impressive aesthetic appeal, and even create an extension to an indoor room.
A patio covering can be specifically designed to serve both practical functionality and stylish decorative enhancements. Essentially, our patio shades are a rigid waterproof hanging exterior attached to a commercial building, attached to a commercial deck, or freestanding awning frame, anchored by posts that can be engineered to withstand over 175 mph winds depending on the model and size. Most are also able to withstand heavy rain, even hail, which means if a storm rumbles ashore, you can rely on your pergola cover. Since we realize the significance of versatile, durable products, we offer a wide range of styles to select, colors, and fabrics to select. A patio pergola can serve a variety of functions that will not only protect the area from harsh weather elements but will beautify the outdoor space as a whole.
A regular or traditional pergola is usually made from wood and does not have any type of cover to protect from sun, rain or snow. A retractable roof or what some term a retractable awning cover or retractable pergola cover is a structure made of either aluminum or wood and has a retractable or rotating louver roof that provides protection from the elements including sun/rain/hail or sun/rain/hail/snow.
Yes, most of our pergola covers are waterproof (different than water resistant), allowing for maximum use of the commercial outdoor space, regardless of unfavorable weather elements.
Since a regular or traditional pergola does not have any type of cover to protect from sun, rain or snow it is difficult to compare it to a retractable roof pergola. To be fair, one needs to add the cost of the regular pergola to the cost of a waterproof cover itself (our Firenze model) and then compare that to an "all in one" retractable roof pergola like out Ankara or Istanbul model for example. Our experience is that the cost of the regular/traditional pergola and a waterproof cover such as our Firenze model is higher than that of an "all in one" unit such as our Ankara or Istanbul model plus the customer needs to work with 2 different vendors as Retractableawnings.com does not provide traditional wood pergolas. For a range of pricing, see each specific models web page.
