A pergola is a great way to add architectural beauty and charm to your backyard and is a cost-effective way to add a structure for your outdoor living space. We have several standard choices to consider for your free-standing or attached structure, including various beam and joist sizes and lattice spacing to allow the exact amount of sunlight through to fit your needs. We can customize the columns and the shape of the pergola to give it a personalized feel. Pergolas function as a way to create a space that you can lounge under, offering the best of both worlds: shade and sunlight. We can vary the amount of shade it produces by using different spacings for the lattice and also by the orientation and size of the joists and beams. Every pergola we build is anchored in the ground in a concrete footing and bolted together to ensure maximum strength. They can be painted or stained to match the style you are looking for, and can be constructed out of cedar or pressure-treated pine. These types of wood are insect and rot-resistant so that you can get the maximum lifespan out of your structure to give you many years of enjoyment out of your outdoor structure. We use Sherwin-Williams Woodscapes Exterior Stain products that will protect your investment for several years. See the many different color options here! Pergolas are a great alternative to building a covered patio and can be a more cost-effective solution. Let the Magnolia Patio Covers design team work with you to create the perfect outdoor structure that will fit your budget and your architectural style!
