Build a Pergola for Your Custom Deck

 

If you are looking for some shade on your deck but don’t really want a full cover, a pergola would be a good option for you to consider. Pergolas will add some shade to your deck and provide an attractive design element.

Below are some pictures of pergolas that we have built for customers. There are quite a few different design styles that show how the addition can enhance a deck. There are countless possibilities to choose from depending on the type of wood, composite, vinyl, aluminum, shape, design of support posts, etc.
