Pergola Flexibility Serves Many Purposes

A louvered pergola is the most versatile structure for outdoor spaces for your home. Pergolas can be stand-alone structures covering and featuring a seating area or a walkway. It can also be installed over your deck or patio. If yours is The Smart Pergola system with motorized louvered roofing panels, the options are limited only by your imagination.

The origin of the word, pergola, is Latin, referring to a projecting eave. Today it is an outdoor structure with columns that support a roofing grid and rafters. The roof may or may not be left open.

Benefits of roofing on a pergola 

While open roofed pergolas may be whimsical and ethereal with vines growing up the columns and showy flower clusters of wisteria hanging loose, they don’t offer much protection from the weather. They also generally require difficult upkeep.
