A pergola is an outdoor structure usually consisting of columns or posts and an open roof with cross beams that are often used for “outdoor living room.” Pergolas provide light and inviting space to relax, dine or just admire. At Texas Custom Exteriors, we have provided reasons why pergolas can be an excellent addition to your outdoor living space.
Free-standing design element.
For visual interest and romantic appeal to your landscape, a pergola can be “dressed up” with flowering or fragrant vines growing up and over the rafters and down the vertical posts. It is a great way to protect pavement or walkway.
