Why you need a Pergola
A Pergola is a simple and convenient way to add value and beauty to your home. The weather in Sydney can be temperamental, so our hottest months can also be our wettest. We love our summertime BBQs, but we also know showers can begin at any time, often with very little notice. A pergola lets you continue with the sunshine and festivities, even when the sky clouds over for a few hours. It offers protection during those sudden showers and the scorching sun.
Extend Your Living Space
A patio or deck may seem like it is just an aesthetic addition to your house. But, by adding a pergola you turn the open space into a ‘new room’. You can use it for entertaining, as an indoor-outdoor crafting space, or even a home office. With a few additional accessories it can be a exceptional entertainment area or chill out zone. Here at Pergola Land, we offer optional add-ons like LED lights, heat strips, handrail, outdoor blinds and screening.
Our pergolas aren’t just basic canopies. We have alfresco pergola options that include insulation, with steel roofing on the upper surface and a ceiling on the underside. Our polycarbonate roofing materials include infra-red filters, so they let in more light while keeping out excess heat. This keeps your shaded area cooler and brighter, filling your space with natural light.
Nobody likes a nosy neighbour and a pergola is a good way to increase your privacy. You can choose between our 8mm polycarbonate ArcoPlus®IR, triple-layered insulated alfresco roofing, colourbond roofing or Louvred Opening Roof System, then complete the area with blinds or screening. This encloses your space into a partially secluded room, offering much needed privacy without limiting ventilation. Air still flows freely.
You could make this even more effective by opting for a pergola constructed on roof brackets. They leave uncovered sections between the pergola beams and your house roof, creating a ‘floating effect’ that is can also be described as a flyover pergola.
Increase Your Home Security
Security and safety of our homes and family is always a concern. Sometimes we worry about our furniture, tools and toys in your yard. Whether it’s your gardening equipment, the children playing in the backyard or you’re worried about someone straying into your yard and seeing (or taking) things they shouldn’t. Our pergolas come with optional custom built gates and roller mechanisms for your outdoor blinds. They could potentially increase the safety of your belongings.
Aesthetically, our outdoor designs are flattering and appealing. For your pergola roof, you can choose a flat roof with a slight slope or a gabled option for added height and increased air circulation.
