If you daydream about creating the perfect space for entertaining, sunbathing, gardening, or just relaxing in your New Jersey yard, why not make it a reality with a pergola? If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a “pergola” is an outdoor structure with columns that support a slatted or gridded roof. Pergolas are sometimes used in gardening to allow sunlight to reach plants while still providing shade.

Benefits of Installing a Pergola

There are numerous reasons to consider adding a pergola to your home’s outdoor space. Here are just a few:

Added Outdoor Living Space

Pergolas significantly expand your outdoor living space, creating an ideal area for entertaining guests, dining, or just relaxing with a book. They provide a unique charm and character that can transform an ordinary patio or deck into a stylish retreat.

Increased Home Value

A well-constructed pergola can significantly boost your home’s value. Potential buyers appreciate a well-designed and functional outdoor space, making pergolas a worthwhile investment if you ever plan on selling your home.

Customizable Designs

Pergolas can be custom designed to suit your specific needs and preferences. You can choose from a variety of materials, sizes, and styles to ensure that your pergola seamlessly blends with your home’s architecture and existing outdoor decor.

Shade and Privacy

Pergolas provide an excellent source of shade during those hot summer days. By adding drapes or screens, you can also increase your privacy.

Pergola Materials and Design

At Progressive Fence & Railing, we understand that each homeowner has unique preferences and requirements. Therefore, we offer a variety of pergola designs and materials to cater to different needs.

Wood Pergolas

Wooden pergolas offer a classic, rustic charm. They can be painted or stained to match your outdoor decor.

Vinyl Pergolas

Vinyl pergolas, on the other hand, require less maintenance and are more resistant to the elements. They come in a variety of styles and colors to complement your home’s exterior.

Adding Accessories to Your Pergola

Accessories can be added to your pergola to enhance its utility and charm. These include hanging plants, lights, curtains, and even outdoor fans. We can advise you on the best accessories that complement your pergola’s design and your outdoor space.

Pairing Pergolas With Decks and Patios

Pairing a pergola with your existing deck or patio can completely transform your outdoor space. It provides a defined area, giving your deck or patio a more structured and stylish look. You can also install a pergola over an outdoor kitchen or a hot tub to enhance the functionality and aesthetic appeal of these areas.

Integrating a Pergola With Fences and Railings

Pergolas can be integrated seamlessly with existing fences and railings. For instance, a pergola entrance can be a striking addition to your fence. Railings, on the other hand, can be added around your pergola to enhance its safety and style.

Choosing the Right Pergola Size

When choosing a pergola, it’s important to take into account the size of your outdoor space. You don’t want a pergola that’s too small to be functional or too large for your space. We offer a range of sizes to suit any garden, patio, or deck.

Professional Pergola Installation

Installing a pergola requires skill and precision, and our team at Progressive Fence & Railing is well-equipped for the task. We have years of experience in pergola installations, and our commitment to quality ensures that you receive a pergola that not only meets but exceeds your expectations.

Pergola Maintenance

Maintaining your pergola is crucial to ensure its longevity. The nature of the maintenance will depend on the type of material used. For instance, wooden pergolas may need to be repainted or re-stained periodically. We provide expert advice on how to maintain your pergola based on its type and your local weather conditions.

How Does a Pergola Compare to a Gazebo?

Gazebos are another outdoor structure we love here at Progressive Fence & Railing, but there are a few differences between gazebos and pergolas. In fact, if you’ve seen a few pictures of both types of structures, you’ll quickly realize they’re much more different than they are alike!

Gazebos have full roofs rather than slats. Because of this, pergolas have a “breezy” feel, which is not always the case with gazebos. Due to their more straightforward construction, pergolas are also usually larger than gazebos.
