You can click on any of the models above to get more information, or, scroll down to below to read more about our retractable patio and retractable pergola cover systems.

 

What Are Pergolas?

Pergolas are large, open outdoor structures often featured in gardens, large 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.

 

What Are Pergola Covers for Decks, Patios, and Porches?

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 house, attached to a 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 rains, even hail, which means if a storm rumbles ashore, you can rely on your patio awning. 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.

 

What Is the Difference Between a Regular Pergola Cover and a Retractable Roof?

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 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 or sun/rain/snow.

 

Are Pergola Covers Waterproof?

Yes, most of our pergola covers are waterproof (different than water resistant and water repellent), allowing for maximum use of outdoor space, regardless of unfavorable weather elements.

 

What Is The Difference Between Water Resistant, Water Repellent and Waterproof?

Water resistant - This offers the lowest level of water protection. If a retractable awning fabric resists water, it’s usually because the fabric itself is acting as a barrier between you and a very light shower. Tightly woven fabrics will offer a very small degree of water resistance, as it takes some time for the water to seep through the material. It is not impervious to water penetration but can stand a very limited exposure to precipitation. However, with the addition of a coating or impregnation, you can make a retractable awning fabric water repellent.

Water repellent - a step up from water resistance and offers a medium level of water protection. This means that water can’t easily penetrate the material (the technical term is that it’s hydrophobic). It beads on the outside instead. However, as soon as you apply pressure – like the skies suddenly opening and releasing a whole load of heavy rain, rainwater starts to seep in through the coating, the fabric and onto your patio or deck.

Waterproof - A waterproof material or product is one that is completely impervious to water penetration and offers the highest level of water protection including heavy rain. No water can get in or out of the product or material or around the edges. A waterproof material or product is able to provide sustained protection from water.

RetractableAwnings.com does not offer water-resistant fabric. We only offer water repellent fabrics on our folding lateral arm awnings and waterproof fabrics on all* of our retractable roof pergolas.

*Perugia model excluded as this product type is only for sun protection and not for rain protection.

 

How Much Do Deck Roofs and Pergola Covers Cost?

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 Salerno 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 Salerno 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 model's web page.
