One of the best things that we can do to make our days feel productive is to renovate our homes. It may seem superficial, but a simple addition can change the entire feel of our households. It can also affect the people who live in it. Renovations become even better when the home addition is both aesthetic and functional.
It’s no surprise that more people are beginning to inquire about pergola installation. Aside from adding a nice accent to a home, pergolas are a great way to improve ventilation and reduce the heat during warm days. Fortunately, Sacramento pergola company can provide you with numerous pergola-related services. Ready to discover how we can help you?

If you want to install a pergola or if you need to have your pergola serviced ASAP, our pergola and patio cover company can provide you with the following services:
This could take just one meeting if you’ve already decided on a specific design. All you have to do is to bring some samples of pergolas that you like. We can discuss the details such as materials, cost, and the process of installation as we go along. We may also provide suggestions to make the entire process smoother for both parties.
When designing the pergola, we have to consider these factors:
- Weight and durability of materials: If you’re planning to have plants crawling on the pergola, we have to go for heavier materials that do not easily deteriorate due to moisture.
- Symmetry: If it’s a standalone pergola, there is no major issue at hand. If you’re going for an attached one, we have to consider if the structure where it will be attached can hold it well.
- Rain and shade: The slats can be directed to ensure that a minimal amount of water can get to the surrounding structures. We may also design the pattern of the slats if you prefer to have a specific amount of shadow coverage in mind. This is especially important during the earlier parts of the afternoon.
This may be considered as the most tedious among the services that our Sacramento Pergola Company can offer. This requires the highest manpower as well. Depending on the type of pergola in question, we can have it completely installed within the day or up to three days. We can also source the materials for you if you’re having trouble with the logistics.
In case unwanted events take place (like typhoons or fire), we can assist you in restoring your pergola to its former glory. Depending on the extent of damage, we can divide the repairs into multiple sessions. This is to ensure that we can focus on the important aspects of the entire process every step of the way.
We recommend you do maintenance at least once a year. Aside from the usual cleaning and polishing, we perform a thorough assessment of the entire structure. This is to ensure that there is no damage or signs of deterioration present.
Aside from the usual cleaning solutions and water pressure rinsing, we also resort to deep cleaning. This is to ensure that there is no new growth or development of mold and mildew.
If you want to add some interesting elements to your pergola, our awning company can discuss this with you. Like with the designing services, we suggest that you bring along at least two pictures. This will help us easily visualize what you want to do for your upgraded pergola. We will also discuss the costs and other pertinent processes once we agree on the days and times that the upgrade will take place.
What Are Pergolas?
Pergolas are roof-like structures that typically project outward from the wall that they lean against. The resulting visual feedback is a protruding overhang that runs adjacent to the wall. Most homeowners prefer to place their pergolas near the patio, along the deck, or near the main entrance. They can also be placed near the seating area of the backyard.
These home additions are mainly used as “sun breakers.” In other words, they are used to reduce the heat by producing “mini shadows” out of their panels. In some home settings, people hang feeders to encourage the birds to come by and pay a short visit. They’re also commonly used to accommodate hanging plants.
Pergolas are similar to many other home additions and are often confused with them. Here are some of the most common:
These are similar in the sense that they both have pillars for support. However, patios usually have four pillars while pergolas can have either two or four, depending on the main design.
Pergolas often have posts. On the other hand, awnings serve as canopies that may be attached to an adjacent wall of the house. This often makes it look like an additional roof, as opposed to pergolas that are usually detached from the house. Our awning company can consider this if you want one added to your home.
Imagine a terrace as the opposite of an awning. While an awning is a roof-like structure, a terrace is a protruding floor of the house that is usually attached to a wall. While it’s a completely different structure, we can install a pergola on your terrace if you’d like.

Importance of Caring for Pergolas
Your pergola is considered a useful part of your household, so you have to make sure that you don’t let it deteriorate over time. Here are some reasons to take care of it:
- It provides an adequate amount of shade during hot and humid days.
- Birds and insects can visit it from time to time and can add to a nice view while you’re relaxing.
- Plants can readily crawl on the posts and the slats, which eventually adds to an organic overall feel.
- Caring for pergolas ensures that no safety issues will come due to structural damage and neglect.
You can choose from various dimensions. As a general rule of thumb, the smaller the house, the smaller the pergola should be. This is the same case for larger houses.
If you’re planning to have regular barbecue parties in your backyard, you may consider having a larger pergola built. However, if you mostly have the backyard to yourself for lounging, a smaller one usually gets the job done.
Pergolas are typically made with numerous slats. However, you can also opt to have a solid-covered one if you prefer. While some go for structures such as wood or metal, some want to have something as simple as a cloth over the slats. If you’re planning to grow plants on and around the roofing and the pillars, it’s best to leave the top part as it is. This will help the plants crawl on the structure more freely and can even give a nature-like feel.
Attached vs. Detached
While most pergolas are detached by default, we can also design an attached one if you want to somewhat stand out from the rest. If you want to add a porch-like feel to your home, an attached pergola may be your best bet.
Unfortunately, not all households can readily accommodate an attached pergola. There are various factors at play here, including but not limited to the following:
- General structure of where the pergola will be attached
- Materials that will be used for the pergola
- Prevailing weather and climate of the given area
- Policies covering the house where the pergola will be attached
