Many of the projects we are contracted to build here at Archadeck of Northeast Dallas encompass a large footprint and multiple structures. However, that is not always the case, and often the best design is one that fits the scale of the home and the needs of the client. Our goal is to provide a custom design to extend your outdoor enjoyment, no matter the size.
Our recent pergola addition in Keller, TX is the perfect example of a smaller scale project that delivers a BIG result!
When we met with the homeowners for their complimentary design consultation, their existing outdoor space was an existing concrete patio off the back of the home. Their ultimate goal, as they conveyed to our designer, was to have a space that offered protection from inclement weather, better aesthetics and above all shade!
Instead of choosing a traditional covered porch or patio for the space, the homeowners decided to go with a custom cedar pergola addition. They liked the look and feel of a pergola as it offered many of the same benefits of a patio cover at a fraction of the cost of doing a full-on roofed addition.
Our talented designers got to work perfecting their ideal space taking cues from their list of needs and desires
We agreed that a modern-chic design was the best fit for their home and landscape. The finished project is built using cedar as the medium for the pergola addition. The clients chose dark walnut stain to increase the warmth of the already warm hues of the cedar. Archadeck attached the pergola addition to the house wall and installed matching gutters. The homeowner also had the area wired for electricity so they could easily add a ceiling fan and party lights overhead. To increase the protection and shade capabilities of the pergola, Archadeck also installed a Polygal polycarbonate cover in bronze.
Polygal is often used to enhance the protective benefits of our custom pergolas. Polygal is the brand name for transparent or translucent multi-wall polycarbonate sheets. It’s plastic, and a sheet of this special plastic overhead can make the difference between enjoying your outdoor living space or having to retreat indoors. When excess heat, burning UV rays, or rain put a damper on your ability to relax outdoors, Archadeck of Northeast Dallas can provide the solution.
The customers are elated with the final outcome of the addition – they are looking forward to spending many days, and evenings, under the pergola. And, we hope you’ll agree that a pergola can take outdoor living to another level in a number of ways. This versatile structure can add dimension, rustic charm or elegance to any outdoor space.
At Archadeck, we welcome any project, large or small. Whether you’re creating a deluxe outdoor living design from scratch or you simply want to add a pergola to your existing space, we would love to design a pergola that fulfills your purpose. Contact Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake today!
