Reasons Why You Should Consider a Pergola

lattice-patio-cover-el-cajon-ca-300x225Your backyard should be like your own personal oasis, and there are many ways that you can ensure it becomes exactly that. One of the foremost things you can do is add a backyard shade structure, and perhaps the most popular option is a pergola. Pergolas are typically built with latticed roofs and vertical beams without walls. There are a bevy of reasons why you should consider adding one of these beautiful structures to your backyard, including that:

They Protect You From the Elements

A pergola will provide you with a beautiful shaded area where you can enjoy a sunny day without worrying about harsh UV rays creating an unpleasant glare or making you terribly uncomfortable. Traditional pergolas have partially open lattice roofs, onto which you can add climbing flowers or a canopy to create even more shade. There are even operable pergolas, which can close completely for total shade at the touch of a button.

They Add Value

According to experts, you can add as much as 20% value to your home by having a pergola installed, as they provide a lot of beauty and interest to your outdoor area that’s immensely appealing to potential homebuyers. Plus, these structures can be far more affordable than other home additions, so you may get a nice return on your investment.

They Create More Space for Entertaining

Outdoor parties and other gatherings are far more enjoyable without the intense heat of the sun on your face. A pergola creates a defined, beautiful, and versatile entertainment area for you to host a dinner, or just sip on some coffee or wine with the ones you love.

They’re Attractive

Pergolas add definition and a charming, sophisticated look that makes them a beautiful addition to any backyard. They come in many styles (often Italian-inspired ones) and can be accessorized with things like string lights, hanging curtains, climbing vines, hanging pots, and much more.
