Enhance Your Outdoor Space With A Pergola

A sure-fire way to enhance your yard, increase your property value, and create your dream space is to invest in a pergola. A pergola can transform simple patio furniture into a place to relax or entertain. It’s not a stuffy room, and it’s not a pavilion that will block out the stars. You can even enjoy the beauty of the outdoors from beneath a well-constructed pergola during all seasons.

Pergola or Pavilion

Often confused with a pavilion, a pergola is a structure that consists of parallel columns supporting an open, flat roof of girders and cross rafters. A pavilion is similar, but has a full roof. Some homeowners actually prefer to have both, as pergolas are growing in popularity. They are ideal for gardens and flowered patio areas, as they allow sunlight and weather to pass through the roof. This is not an option for pavilions.

IBD Outdoor Rooms Builds the Best Pergolas

At IBD Outdoor Rooms we are proud to build the best pergolas because we take care to choose the best materials, designs, manufacturers, and assembly. We don’t want your experience to be a negative one. One thing that can ruin your dream space quicker than anything is a bad assembly experience or incorrect assembly that results in damaged property or injured persons. That’s why we take every opportunity to perfect and streamline our system.

The Best Wood

At IBD Outdoor Rooms, customer satisfaction is our main goal, so we can build from any wood species you prefer. However, for the best combination of price, color, longevity, and finish quality, we know that Douglas Fir is the best, and it’s our standard material. Other manufacturers may charge more for the type of clear fir we use, but we partner with the best manufacturers to offer the best “free of heart” heavy timbers that offer the most beautiful finished product.

Our Superior Designs

The design staff at IBD Outdoor Rooms offers several standard designs and sizes that allow for easy assembly yet have subtle touches that enhance the elegance of the structure. We work with customers to find the design that best suits your need and your space. We also have several talented and experienced designers on staff who can help you custom design a pergola.

Advantages of Having a Pergola

One of our specialties at IBD Outdoor Rooms, designing and building pergolas and pavilions provide an open outdoor living space away from the house. The main difference between these two structures is pavilions are roofed, and pergolas are partially roofed. To those who have never seen a pergola, it may look unfinished because of its simple structure of vertical beams and roof beams. As pergolas have become a popular outdoor decorating trend, we would like to talk about them and tell you more about the benefits of having a pergola in your yard.

Pergolas for Your Backyard - IBDODR.com

A pergola gives you defined space outdoors.

Giving you more privacy than a deck or patio, a pergola provides an area for outdoor dining, entertaining, and relaxation. Pergolas are often paired with a deck or concrete flooring, and you can add drapes or screens for even more privacy.

A pergola gives you a place to grow vines and other plants.

Depending on the soil and climate conditions of where you live, clematis, wisteria, ivy, hops or grapes are ideal climbing plants to grow to provide shade, beauty, and privacy to your pergola. IBD Outdoor Rooms can suggest which plants are the best for the area and make recommendations about which types would look best with your pergola. In the spring, a pergola wall covered with flowers can brighten your day. You can also use your pergola for vertical gardening if your yard has limited space for growing plants.

A pergola can give you a bit of shade on a hot day.

While the typical pergola does not provide total shade, the beams or latticework at the top of the pergola still give you some relief from the blazing sun. You can also use fabric as a shield from the sun. Keeping the roof open on a pergola allows you to fully enjoy the stars in the sky at night.

A pergola will add real estate value to your home.

According to ModernMom, the home renovation expert Bob Vila claims attractive landscaping can add up to 20% real estate value to your home. Think of the money you are spending on a beautiful pergola as an investment in your home that you will enjoy for years to come.

A pergola can be customized with any amenities you would like.

If you wish to use your pergola as a dining room, IBD Outdoor Rooms can design built-in seating that will stay true to the clean architectural lines of a pagoda. We can also add an outdoor fireplace to the pergola to create the perfect outdoor spot for relaxation and conversation.
