Top 9 Advantages of a Patio Pergola

Backto All Posts

The term “pergola” is often confused with other common outdoor structure terms, but a pergola is actually a very specific outdoor living space component. Typically featured in areas like large patios or large decks, and even gardens and park areas, pergolas are large, open outdoor structures. A patio pergola can be either attached to a building or freestanding. If attached, a pergola typically utilizes elements like beams, rafters, and columns/posts to offer support and to shelter the outdoor area.

People cite a wide variety of reasons to build a beautiful patio pergola. However, some of the most common uses of patio pergolas are as follows:

  • Shade and weather protection

  • Extending an indoor room to the outside

  • Building an outdoor living space

  • Upgrading an outdoor structure to add both function and aesthetic appeal

No matter what the reason may be that a homeowner or business owner chooses to install a patio pergola, the advantages to this outdoor structure are abundant. With no walls, patio pergolas create the feeling of an outdoor room all while achieving an inviting, open atmosphere. Plus, with a vast array of design options, matching the look and feel or even enhancing the look and feel of a building or outside area is easily attainable.
