Pergola Perfection For Outdoor Living!

Our Pergolas Are More Than Just A Pretty Face…

Many builders only use pergolas in their designs for solely cosmetic reasons. It is true that pergolas add dimension, vertical interest, and aesthetics to an outdoor living space. However, there is more to an Archadeck of Southwest Houston pergola than just a pretty face. Our pergolas are designed to not only add beauty but to add privacy, shade, protection from the elements and even help anchor your outdoor living area. The versatility and benefits of a Houston pergola are truly endless….

Houston Wooden Pergolas

Wooden pergolas, especially cedar, remain our most popular pergola material of choice among Houston-area homeowners. Their rustic charm can add character and dimension to almost any outdoor structure. In many cases, our wooden pergolas are used in conjunction with a Houston paver, stone or stain & stamp concrete patio, giving you the ultimate appeal of stone and wood in much the same way they mingle in nature.

Archadeck of Southwest Houston can design and build your pergola with increased sun protection in mind while keeping the original design of your pergola intact. This may include integration of a sun protection cover into the design, curtains or blinds as we have many options available which can be customized to bring the most shade and comfort to your pergola addition.

It all begins with a complimentary design consultation, so give us a call today at (281) 214-8299 to get started.

Adding A Vertical Element

As a leader in the industry, Archadeck of Southwest Houston is the place Houston-area homeowners turn to for custom- designed and built outdoor structures and combination outdoor living spaces. Too often in the preliminary design stage, pergolas are overlooked because most people are simply unaware of the many benefits they offer. For instance, a pergola is the ideal structural addition to increase the character of your deck, patio and landscape because it introduces a vertical element that is often lacking.

Additional Benefits Of Adding A Pergola Include…

The feeling of a defined space

Four columns and cross rafters with no walls and a deck or concrete floor create an open-air outdoor room that’s great for eating, entertaining or lounging around with a magazine, offering more privacy than a deck or patio. Add drapes, screens or other materials to the pergola and you’ll have even more privacy.

Block unsightly views

Pergolas are also useful for added privacy or for blocking unsightly views, like a neighbor’s hideous outbuilding or dead tree. Placing a pergola strategically will focus guests’ attention on elements of your property that contribute a sense of elegance to your backyard.

Your own “green” initiative

Vines like clematis, ivy, wisteria or grapes all do well when planted around a pergola. Not only will climbing plants be an attractive addition to the structure, but they’ll also provide you with even more shade and privacy…not to mention the option of vertical gardening if space is at a premium in your yard.

Protection from the weather

The fact that the pergola is not completely closed off like a regular roof means it’ll still have that outdoorsy feel without succumbing to the elements. If the plants are dense enough, or the design includes a cover such as Polygal, a pergola can even protect you from the rain!
