It’s possible to extend the joy of living and playing outdoors – even as the seasons change – by turning your patio into useful outdoor living space. Adding a modern, beautiful patio cover, awning or pergola to your home can provide a number of benefits to using your outdoor space, not only for your family and friends but also for your pets. Consider these benefits to covering your patio with a quality-built pergola or awning.
Made of durable, wood-look aluminum posts, crossbeams, purlins and joists, a pergola creates shade for people and pets alike to spend time outdoors while staying cool. Constructed by professional builders, a pergola system may be attached to your home or may be built as a free-standing structure just about anywhere in your yard. Unlike wood pergolas, aluminum construction won’t suffer the negative effects of nature from exposure to sun, rain, ice and wood-boring insects like ants, bees and wasps. Our unique designs – longer-lasting than traditionally built wooden pergolas – are available in a wide range of colors to match the style of your home.
One of the primary advantages of having a pergola over your patio is that it helps to define the space as a cool, comfortable place to relax. Additionally, covering your patio also can turn it into useful indoor/outdoor space for your dog or cat that provides shelter from the sun, rain and wind, and at the same time allows a full view of your yard.

Additionally, a covered patio area can serve as a mudroom in the winter and spring months when snow and mud could be tracked into your home. In this way, your pets can use this defined space to dry off before crossing the threshold, even as family and friends can remove their shoes, boots and wet coats and hats in the covered area prior to entering.
Enjoy these plus many other benefits by turning your current patio into useful indoor/outdoor space for the fall, winter, and spring months.
