The Top 3 Dreamiest Pergolas to Inspire You


Summer will begin in 129 days, but who’s counting? While the ground is covered in snow and ice and the only thing on our mind is keeping warm, we have our sights on summer and while warmth is months away, you should be thinking about your outdoor living space well before then. Typically, the dedicated independently owned Four Seasons Sunrooms & Windows dealers nationwide become busy as soon as the beginning of March and the outdoor living building season is in full gear by April. To get first on the list and have your outdoor living space ready just in time for summer and before your neighbors, be sure you contact your local dealer today. Below are some of our favorite Pergola designs to inspire the outdoor living space of your dreams.
Hanging Hammocks


This wheat-toned pergola with miter end caps gives this tropical backyard space a very modern feel. With stoned stairs leading up to an inviting hammock, this pergola is the perfect space to kick back and relax with your favorite book. The tremendous flexibility of our Elitewood Ultra Series pergolas lets you select the amount of shade your pergola will provide, from total 40% to 60% total shade. You can even combine styles to give you a pergola that will provide full protection from rain or sun! With a traditional style open-lattice cover, you can give the space a cooling ventilation effect within the living area, while keeping the blaring sun out.

Fire Pits and Places

One of the hottest colors of 2019 for outdoor living solutions will be the dark-toned aluminum ones. Our favorite is this brown patio cover with corbel end caps. This pergola, providing 60% shade, allows just enough light in. What makes our Ultra Series pergolas different from other aluminum patio products is our multi-step coating system that chemically cleans the aluminum sheet and is then followed by a baked-on primer and a finishing coat of an ultra-tough carbon/fluoride bond. This brings our Ultra Series pergola performance ratings to “EXCELLENT” wen it comes to stain and chemical resistance, exterior durability, salt spray resistant, fade and color resistant, and gloss retention. But what makes this particular pergola special is the add on of a custom-made outdoor fireplace. During those, dare we say it, COLD summer nights, this fireplace will bring in just enough warmth to allow the party to continue well into the night.


CURTAINS AND COMBINATION COVERS

Use your imagination to design a combination pergola/patio cover featuring both open style and solid style sections. This feature will allow you to enjoy your outdoor living space on the hottest days of the summer as well as the coolest (and every day in between). With a combination pergola/patio cover, you can virtually custom design your structure to meet your every need for a total outdoor living experience. What makes this space stand out to us is the use of curtains. Utilizing curtains to both close out sunshine and wind, as well as create an immediate sense of privacy will bring a totally different scene to your outdoor space when YOU want.

Protecting Your Outdoor Spaces During The Winter

Winter is here, which means that you should officially be checking off the outdoor winterizing that’s been on your to do list for months. Outdoor spaces can be a cherished secondary living space to us, especially given the level of time and money that we dedicate to the design and upkeep. When the spring comes, we often jump at the chance to set all of our outdoor items up, start planting, and restart lawn maintenance. But, when the leaves start falling and a chill hits the air, we long to hold on to those endless summer nights. For this reason, many people put off important maintenance required to preserve external assets. Striving to minimize damage to patios, decks, sunrooms and other outdoor objects should be at the top of your to do list during the fall each year. Preventative tasks will help prevent costly repairs or replacement. With a little bit of sweat equity or help from third parties that specialize in this process, you can assure that you are taking the appropria
