One type of shading structure that is very popular in the Denver outdoor living industry are pergolas. A hybrid between a patio and gazebo, a pergola is a wall-less feature present in many Denver gardens and yards that create an open-air sort of patio space. While these are typically built to create outdoor oases, they can run into the same shading issues as patios do if they do not have a pergola cover over them. American Awning Company has almost 50 years in the Denver awning industry and can design and install covers for pergolas of any dimension.
The point of a pergola is to cover an area outside and create a stand-alone patio with protection from the sun. Denver gets 300 days of sunshine a year, and direct sunlight can make sitting outside uncomfortably hot, which is what pergola covers are for. By adding pergola covers, Denver residents can actually utilize their outdoor areas for relaxation and recreation without getting a sunburn or being sweaty. Pergola covers provide great coverage for grilling and eating areas and can act as a cabana for pool and jacuzzi areas. Being able to better enjoy these areas makes a Denver yard more attractive for current residents as well as future buyers, since incorporating pergola covers can increase a property’s value.
Many pergolas are custom structures that people have constructed specifically for their Denver property’s yard. In order to cover something that is unique, pergola covers should be custom made to fit the dimensions and design of the structure. American Awning Company has a Denver fabrication facility with many models and materials to pick from when styling a pergola cover for a property.
