With UK summers reaching record temperatures from one year to the next, it makes sense for you and your loved ones to have a shaded retreat to rest, dine and unwind.
Where some homeowners opt for a conservatory or single-story extension, savvier space-seeking enthusiasts realise the same benefits are at play with a pergola – costing a fraction of the price.
With that said, let’s run through the key reasons to invest in a pergola, and why it might be the missing piece to your summer lifestyle.
With the children taking up living areas with mountains of toys and trucks, a quick escape to an outside refuge not only restores a sense of space, but also sanity.
As a solid timber structure complete with either a felted, louvered or green plant roof, a pergola makes the most of your outdoor space with protection from the sun and light showers.
Of course, other alternatives are available to extend your living areas – such as a glass conservatory or extension – but neither rival a pergola for price or speed of construction.
Much like any upgrades made to your home, a pergola is a poignant asset that adds value to any property. Aside from its aesthetic and functional appeal, it adds interest to an outside area where potential buyers can visualise a slow summer evening with the family.
It goes without saying an extension is a wise investment for any home. But with months of mess, noise and general disruption to day-to-day living, pergolas are often preferred as a quicker and cheaper alternative.
From consultation to construction, a bespoke timber pergola can often be installed in as little as 72 hours, depending on the availability of materials. What’s more, you’ll also have a few quid left in your pocket to add some outdoor furniture.
Attractive and versatile, a bespoke pergola can be designed and installed to complement other assets of your home or garden. With the addition of stretching vines and a green roof, they submerge into surroundings as if they were always part of your home.
Available in a range of sizes and styles, they’re an affordable solution for transforming dead space into a shaded spot to build memories with friends and family.
