Common Misconceptions about Pergolas

When you’re looking for new ways to enhance your outdoor living space by adding a patio or a pergola, it is essential to avoid buying into the myths.

They don’t add functionality to the space. 

Pergola InstallationSome may think that a pergola isn’t useful to the outdoor space to protect against the sun or rain. In reality, pergola and louvered roof systems are equipped with louvered slats that can be opened to let the sun shine through, or they can be closed to block out the rain or provide a shady place to relax.

Our Arcadia system can be closed to provide solid shelter; angled in to provide shade; opened to allow maximum light and minimize resistance in high winds, and angled out to provide cooling shade with an open view of the sky.

They require a lot of maintenance. 

The amount of maintenance needed relies heavily on the type of material your pergola is made out of. Our louvered roof systems are made of extruded aluminum, which is easy to maintain and can accept a variety of finishes for a customized look and added protection.

They can’t withstand the elements.

A louvered roof system is designed to withstand the weather effectively. These systems are built using aluminum. Aluminum does not rust and combine strength and flexibility to flex under loads and spring back from the shock of impact, making them durable enough to withstand the elements.

They aren’t worth the money.

A pergola is a significant investment and can transform your patio in an oasis of relaxation where you can enjoy the shade or bask in the sunshine, providing you a return on your investment for years to come. At Treesdale Landscape Company, we strive to get the job right the first time to ensure you get the most out of your louvered roofing system.
