If you have already started to plan your upgraded backyard oasis for your Ottawa home next year, then you may be looking at a variety of options, including pergolas.
Pergolas can be a great way to add a bit of character to your backyard while providing you with an area to sit and relax with a great book or to entertain friends in. But if you haven’t looked at pergolas lately, you might be surprised to find they’ve got some modern improvements that you might be interested in.
Traditionally, pergolas usually have wood slats that offer some protection from the sun, but you will still get wet if it rains. Newer louvered styles of pergolas and can be open and closed, giving you the opportunity to allow in more or less sun and give you complete protection from light summer rains.
Here are a few of the benefits of adding a louvered pergola to your outdoor space in Ottawa
Enjoy more time outdoors
While any style of pergola can help you to enjoy your outdoors more, louvered pergolas take that extra step by allowing you to customize how much shade you want or to completely protect you from rain. If you are looking to spend more time outdoors next summer, this could be a great option for you.
Do you have a yard that is on the small size? Or do you have a larger space suitable for entertaining larger outdoor parties? Maybe you only have room for a small, cozy pergola in which to enjoy that Friday glass of wine or a conversation with a close friend. Either way, because these pergolas are custom designed, they can be made to suit your space requirements.
This is not your grandmother’s pergola! Louvered pergolas have a modern appearance, and they can add a Mediterranean flair to any outdoor space. They are built with aesthetics in mind and have a sleek and elegant appearance.
Pergolas and privacy
With a louvered pergola, shades that come down to the sides can act as privacy walls. Traditional pergolas do not always come with this option. So for a bit of extra privacy or wind protection, choosing a louvered pergola is a great option.
Durable and low maintenance Aluminum Pergolas
Unlike traditional pergolas, which are made from wood and must be treated yearly to prevent deterioration, these louvered pergolas are made from durable aluminum. The result is that you end up with an incredibly strong and durable structure that is practically maintenance-free.
