Our Pergola Installers Come Highly Recommended
Pergola installation is becoming a standard backyard feature because it creates a beautiful place to rest during the hot Houston summers. If you’re making plans for a pool and an outdoor kitchen, then you should also think about creating a shelter where folks can enjoy a moment of quiet and calm.
Our team of pergola installers at Pavertime will install a pergola that matches your vision and integrates seamlessly with your patio, pool, and backyard landscape.
Pavertime was easy to work with, reasonably priced, and did great work! When I had an issue they came out and fixed it right away. I would happily use them again.
What is a Pergola?
At its most basic, a pergola is a separate space that provides shade and some seating. It’s generally free-standing and away from the house, though attached pergolas with a gable roof feature can also be a nice addition.
Your pergola installer at Pavertime can help you choose the best site for your structure. During your conversation with our team, make sure to consider:
- Any seating you need to incorporate
- The flooring you want to use to support the pergola
- The amount of space required for the types of plants you’d like to add
- Lighting and security to create a care-free environment
For example, a pergola is a great addition to the pool area of your home. A pergola on the other side of the pool can be a lovely spot to get away from the bustle and noise, read a book, or take phone calls. To draw guests out to your pergola, you may want to put in bug control tools, a small water feature, some seating, and a table for beverages and food.
Properly designed, your pergola can also serve as a walkway to a flower or vegetable garden. You can buy a kit and try a do-it-yourself approach, or you can let our experienced team of professionals install a custom pergola that will last and add value to your home.
Pergolas as Shelter
If your yard is brand-new and you’re not quite sure where everything will go yet, talk to your pergola installer about setting up a pergola to serve as a shelter while your outside living area comes into focus.
You can set up a temporary outdoor kitchen until you know exactly how you want it to go and build that structure closer to the house. Your pergola can then serve as a temporary pool shelter until you know exactly where that needs to go. Get the pool and surrounding structures built and use your pergola as a tiki bar or reading room. It’s an open space with a lot of options!
Custom Pergola Materials
Pergolas can be made of many different materials. In the Houston area, sunlight and moisture need to be carefully considered when deciding on the type of material. Your pergola installation team can help you make the best choice for your project.
No matter the ultimate purpose, you can enjoy a pergola built of the following materials:
- Naturally rot-resistant lumber such as Western Red Cedar.
- Stone pillars.
- The roof of your choice, such as polycarbonate, wood cross pieces, or asphalt shingles.
Attached or Free-Standing?
While traditional pergolas are free-standing, the addition of an attached pergola can turn your patio from an oven in the middle of the day into a highly useful space to enjoy some fresh air while you linger in the shade.
Pergolas offer homeowners a lot of options. Rather than having a sunroom or a screened porch on the property that will allow heat to build up and move into your living space, you will have a shaded, open-air spot to grill, dine, or just linger as the sun goes down.
Your pergola designer and installation team at Pavertime can help you to orient your pergola roof construction for both maximum shade and maximum airflow.
Pergolas are a Gardener's Delight
If you love plants that need a little shade and are struggling to make them a home in your bright Houston yard, a pergola could greatly change up your gardening options.
For example, our pergola installation team could help you create a free-standing pergola with a stone floor for a seating area and add a raised garden bed inside the structural supports. Here you can grow your favorite plants that need a bit of shade, and enjoy a cool beverage yourself!
We needed a lot of help with everything. The house came with a pergola and small concrete slab and nothing but dirt. This team was able to handle everything from raising the pergola and fitting it with electricity, adding a roof and ceiling fan, gutters and dirt removal. They even expanded the walkway with leftover stones to look more pleasing to the eye. They finished with sod all around and it’s simply beautiful!
We’ve had neighbors stop and make a point to tell us they love our sidewalk in front. We had AT&T workers out for maintenance and wanted to know who did the work. We had our tree removers back out and they got lost finding us; they couldn’t believe it was the same house. We love our patio. Thanks Pavertime!
