But which one should you choose that best fits your outdoor lifestyle?
In this article, learn the pros and cons of ShadeSelect and a traditional pergola so you can create the perfect backyard oasis.
A pergola is an outdoor structure typically made of wood or metal and consisting of a framework with cross beams and posts designed to form an open, airy roof. Pergolas can be used to provide shade over patios, decks, walkways, or other areas where you need some protection from the sun's rays. They also provide a great place to grow vines and other plants, which can add beauty and character to your outdoor space.
ShadeSelect adjustable patio covers allow you to adjust the amount of shade your pergola provides. Constructed with durable aluminum, these motorized or manual systems prove ideal for any harsh weather condition. Open the louvered roof system when you want some fresh air, and close it up during rainstorms.
