One of the questions we always hear is whether or not a pergola provides sun protection. Some homeowners want a pergola for the beautiful aesthetic it provides. There’s no doubt that the back of this Lake Jeanette home was completely transformed with this pergola including majestic columns with stone-wrapped bases. Our designers can tailor the design of your pergola to receive more of less light by adjusting the distance between the lathes but sun will certainly still come through. For these homeowners, we installed a retractable curtain allowing the homeowners to pull it closed on super hot days but to leave it open on other days. They were delighted with the versatility of their new pergola.
