If you’re looking for a way to add a beautiful, yet functional, accent to your home, there’s no better way than with a pergola or louvered roof system. A pergola is an outdoor structure that is built onto your home. It has columns and a roof that can be open or completely closed. The possibilities for pergolas are endless. If you’re interested in adding one to your home, it is important to fully understand the type of construction you’re getting. The definition given by The Spruce is pergolas are “often attached to houses, such that they form an outdoor living space that essentially serves as an extension of a home’s indoor rooms”. These are the typical elements that you will find on a pergola/louvered roof:

  1. Weather-resistant: Even though the weather can often get through on some of the slatted roofs, these structures are still able to withstand exposure to the elements.
  2. Rafters: These are the beams that run parallel and are common on most pergola roofs. They are usually 12-24 inches apart and follow the horizontal pattern that is well-known with these additions.
  3. Columns: One of the most attractive parts of a louvered roof is the statement that the columns make. They date back to the 1600s and continue to bring beauty to modern-day homes.
  4. Footings: Pergola footings are typically poured concrete and rounded. These are the supports for the entire structure.
  5. Made from common materials: One thing we really love about louvered roofs/pergolas is that they aren’t just for the high-end budgets. You can have your pergola constructed from wood, metal, fiberglass, and even plastic. The roof of the structure can even be fabric. Your imagination is truly the limit and we can work with you to determine what materials best suit your aesthetic and budget.
