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. If you enjoy all things green and verdant, these elegant additions will allow your plant life to flourish. However, you don’t have to be a gardener or even have a green thumb to benefit from our pergola installation services at Progressive Fence & Railing!

When you trust us to craft the perfect pergola for your property, we take the job seriously. We’ll work closely with you during each step, from brainstorming ideas to pergola design and construction, all the way through to adding finishing touches that make your pergola truly unique to your style and taste. That’s why our handcrafted pergolas make a great addition to any backyard landscape or garden, no matter how large or small.

Whatever you want, rest assured we’ll create it with our pergola installation services!

Benefits of Pergolas

A new pergola can do all this and more for you, your family, and your NJ property:

  • Add shade to sunny patios, decks, and lawns.
  • Serve as a place to garden, entertain, grill, relax, and more.
  • Protect pools and playsets from dead insects, tree branches, and other debris.
  • Instantly establish an elegant mood in your backyard, especially when paired with the right lighting (we recommend string lighting hung between slats!)
  • Reinforce a design theme for your home, tying together shutters, siding, and other potentially mismatched elements.
  • Help you enjoy the outdoors — you can view sunsets, stars, and more with ease.
  • Create a romantic, private space you can visit by simply stepping into your backyard.

Will a Pergola Add Value to My Home?

To answer the question simply: YES! Your pergola will add value to your home. This is one of the best reasons to consider pergola installation services if you plan on selling now or in the near future. This relatively simple and quick home improvement project can significantly boost your property’s selling price, and you might see a huge return on your investment.

What’s the Lifespan of a Pergola?

If you choose the right team for pergola installation services and practice good upkeep and maintenance, a wooden pergola can last 10-15 years on average. Factors such as weather conditions, materials used, and daily wear and tear can impact your specific pergola’s lifespan, so to get an answer more specific to you, speak with our installation team.

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.
