Why Invest In A Pergola Canopy?

A pergola’s roof is typically made up of beams or slats and is designed to optimize airflow while providing partial coverage from the sun, however it won’t provide protection from rain and the elements. Many property owners add retractable canopies to pergolas so they can still enjoy the sunshine when weather permits but quickly cover their outdoor space when needed.

How We Build Pergolas with Canopies

Pergolas are typically made of aluminum or fiberglass to ensure they’re strong, stable, and capable of withstanding the elements. Aluminum and fiberglass are both rust and water-resistant, ensuring your pergola remains in great shape for decades.

Our pergola canopies can be made from hard materials like aluminum or fiberglass or weather-resistant fabrics like canvas. No matter which option you choose, we can design a modern, attractive canopy for your pergola.

Why Invest In A Pergola Canopy?

South Floridians know that the weather down here can be unforgiving.  But when the weather is nice, the last thing you want is to miss out on the sunshine with a shade product with a fixed roof. A pergola with a canopy gives you the best of both worlds. You can close the canopy during those hot summer days to create a shaded oasis or open it up on cool fall days to enjoy the sunshine and cool air.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pergola Canopies

If you have any questions about our pergola products, we’re here to help. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we hear.

Can You Put a Retractable Awning on a Pergola?

Yes, a retractable awning can add shade to an existing pergola. Retractable awnings are a popular way to add increased shade and rain protection for your pergola, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space even more.

How Much Do Covered Pergolas Cost?

The cost varies, but depending on several factors, you can expect to pay between $30-100 per square foot on average. The final cost will be affected by the size, design, and location of your pergola. Our team has four decades of experience building shade structures and can help you transform your backyard space with a covered pergola that fits within your budget.

Which is Better, a Pergola or an Awning?

A pergola and an awning have different purposes. An awning is typically attached to the house and is geared towards covering windows and entryways, while a pergola is a free-standing structure.

That being said, pergolas tend to be more expensive than awnings but will last longer and require less maintenance. While both structures can provide style and functionality to your outdoor space, it really depends on preference. Our design team can help you determine which shade product best suits your needs and taste.

How Much is a Retractable Pergola Awning?

Cost can vary with several factors, but you can expect to pay around $60 per square foot on average. The design, materials, and size will influence the final costs. Our team has decades of experience designing and building pergolas and will work with you and your budget.

Is it Cheaper to Build or Buy a Pergola?

As we like to say, time is money, and experience matters. While purchasing a kit may be a little less expensive than hiring a professional pergola builder, you’re likely to spend more on your build once you factor in the costs for your time, replacement materials, tool rental costs, and additional laborers. 

When it comes to building pergolas, there’s no replacement for experience. If you’re looking for a fun DIY project to try at home, you might consider building a pergola on your own. But if you want to make the process quick and easy so you can start enjoying your backyard, it’s best to hire the pros.
