Pergolas are popular structures dating back from the Italian Renaissance. Originally designed for shade from midday sunshine, pergolas currently have a variety of uses as well as appeal. Today, pergolas are popularly used to cover walkways, outdoor kitchens, gardens, and more. If you are looking to build a beautiful structure that adds outdoor appeal to your home and landscaping, a pergola is a perfect structure to choose.
Pergolas are a rectangular shape that has several boards to create rafters on top of a four-legged base. Pergola roofs can be left open with a lattice roof or covered to create protection from weather elements. Roof rafters provide only mild shade from the sun, so installing a canopy system to a pergola is recommended for full coverage on hot sunny days.
