A pergola extends your living space and increases the amount of time you can comfortably spend outside in the hot Florida sun. In the right spot, a pergola can cast enough shade to make even a warm Summer afternoon enjoyable. A retractable shade cover can be added if more shade is needed.
Pergolas can also be used to divide large patios into separate spaces, like a dining area or lounging zone.
Other benefits of pergolas include their durability, affordability, and easy to maintain.
