The Ultimate Guide to Designing a Pergola

The Ultimate Guide to Designing a Pergola

A pergola is a fantastic component of any outdoor space, as it adds both beauty and functionality to any area, making it a perfect addition to a backyard or garden. Whether you want to extend your living space outdoors or provide shade to block the summer rays from your deck, a pergola is a great way to accomplish both. Are you worried about design options? Have no fear! As certified StruXure installers, the PBS team of professionals is dotted as the top installers in the country, allowing us to provide you with various design options, ensuring you receive a pergola to match your home aesthetic and unmatched quality perfectly.


The Guide To A Perfect Pergola:


Choose A Location

Choosing its proper location is one of the first steps in designing a pergola. During this process, consider the goals you want to achieve with the pergola. Do you want to extend your living space? Provide shade for your deck? Keep your garden out of the sun? These are all things you should consider when choosing a location. Other items to look out for include the sun’s path as well as the wind in your backyard. No matter what area of your yard you want to add a pergola to, with StruXure’s PergolaX and PBS, we ensure you will get a precise measurement that will give you a perfect fit!


Pick Your Pergola X Model

Not every house is alike; that is why StruXure has designed several customizable models that allow PBS to help you create a pergola that will integrate beautifully with the look of your home. The StruXure Pergola X models offered for homeowners include the Pivot 6, Pivot 6 Slide, and Pan 6.

  • Pivot 6: The Pivot 6 is the most popular pergola model for homeowners! This is because the Pivot 6 has pivoting louvers, allowing the homeowner to control the amount of light entering the space, whether full coverage, partial, or none; it does it all!
  • Pivot 6 Slide: The Pivot 6 Slide is for the homeowner who wants a full sky system. The Pivot 6 Slide, like the Pivot 6, allows you to have complete control of the louvers but also lets you completely open and close the system giving you a clear shot with no louvers to look at!
  • Pan 6: Looking for an option that isn’t completely automated? Then the Pan 6 is for you. The Pan 6 allows portions of your Pergola X to be automated without the entire thing being controllable. This model is great for larger projects with multiple zones where you want to alternate between louvers and pans.

Whether you are looking to add a fan to create a nice breeze, lighting to entertain at night, heaters for those chilly winter months, or screens to keep bugs out, StruXure provides many accessory options for its Pergola X, allowing you to customize your new space exactly how you want it perfectly.
