Add Shade to Your Outdoor Space in the Oklahoma City Metro Area
If you’ve lived in the Oklahoma City metro area, for any length of time, you know how intense the sun can get. The team at Southwest Builders is here to help you find shade from the Oklahoma sun by adding a patio cover or pergola to your home’s outdoor space. Pergolas and patio covers can allow you to make the most of your outdoor area: Entertain during the heat of the summer, relax in the shade under your private patio cover, or host outdoor events without worrying about the heat and sunlight causing issues. Patio covers and pergolas allow you to have fun and enjoy the fresh air without being directly under the scorching sun and its direct heat and high temperatures.
Our shade solutions also allow you to enjoy your outdoor space year-round. Patio covers can easily be transformed into sunrooms and screen rooms when you add insulated glass walls or screens, allowing your space to be heated or cooled. Learn more about pergolas and patio covers below and get in touch with our team today.
Add Pergolas to Your Outdoor Space
A pergola can help you bring that classic, romantic Victorian garden look home with a custom patio cover for your Oklahoma City home. You can opt to add climbing vines with fragrant flowers or leave the natural beauty untouched. Made with Alumawood, this durable, lightweight, aluminum material has the look and feel of natural painted wood. However, unlike wood, it won’t burn, attract termites, crack, peel, warp, or rot. Your pergola will look brand new for years and add value to your home as well.
What Are Pergolas Used for?
If you’re trying to determine whether or not a pergola is suitable for your outdoor space, we can help. A pergola is a vertical structure in a garden or landscaping area that provides shade, shelter, or privacy and can serve as an accent piece. Pergolas can blend in with your existing landscaping, or they can be used to separate multiple garden areas while directing foot traffic. Your pergola can be freestanding, or it can be attached to a wall, fence, or other structure.
Pergolas are larger and more structural than trellises, and have open framework walls and roofs to support fragrant and colorful vines. They consist of two or four posts and a simple slatted roof. Pergola sides can be open, or they can be covered with trellis or lattice work.
