The outdoor spaces of your home add to the functionality, aesthetics, and value of your property. They give you plenty of opportunities to entertain guests and relax in the company of family and friends. But that can happen only with proper design and planning.

If you want to make better use of the open areas on your property (especially on sunny days which are a given here in Florida), it’s a good idea to get a pergola installed on your deck or patio area. In fact, this standalone feature can be added to any spot in your backyard.

It is a stylish way to create a very well-defined space for leisure and outdoor entertainment. Whether you’d like to incorporate a simple yet functional sitting area for your backyard barbecues, a focal point for your garden, or a relaxing area adjacent to the pool, a well-built pergola adds stylish appeal to your property.

Factors to keep in mind

Choosing the perfect pergola for your requirements and budget can be a little challenging, especially because there are so many options available today. Here are some aspects to keep in mind:

  1. Material, design, and styling

Whether you’ve just begun building your backyard haven, or are still considering various options, your yard can give you a good idea about your style and design preferences. You can choose between materials such as wood, vinyl or aluminum; and can decide whether you want a more casual and rustic-looking pergola made of reclaimed wood with a rough finish, or prefer a formal-looking feature with neat lines and a finished appearance. Some styles you can choose from are:

  • Arched pergolas built with natural curves and lines
  • Traditional pergolas with clean, straight, clean lines
  • Custom-designed pergolas based on the architectural styling of your home
  1. How the pergola will be used

One of the best ways to choose the right pergola for your requirements is to consider how you and your family will use it on special occasions as well as for everyday use. Some of our clients want a simple, quiet oasis while others want a more elaborate and decorative feature where they can entertain friends and have elegant dinners and backyard BBQs. We can design and build a pergola that meets your specific ideas and needs.

  1. Size

The pergola should be proportionate to the space it is to be installed in. Aside from this, the size of the feature will depend on the kind of use it will see. We can design compact, less-intrusive features as well as open-styled larger pergolas if you like.

Regardless of the type of pergola you want on your property, we at Hardie Boys Inc. can provide high-quality, stylish yet competitively-priced pergolas to suit your needs.
