What is an Operable Pergola and Why Do I Need One?

Outdoor living is one of the best parts of the warmer Indiana months. From neighborhood cookouts to family birthday parties, having a beautiful backyard space is becoming more desirable.

Upgrade your deck or patio with an operable pergola to create the perfect outdoor entertaining (or relaxing) space.

If you’re considering updating your outdoor space for your family or creating an outdoor dining area for entertaining guests, read on to learn about the benefits of an operable pergola.

Traditional Pergola vs. Operable Pergola

Pergolas are outdoor structures built with columns that support a lattice roof or crossbeams. A pergola can stand on its own or be attached to a house. It extends the indoor living space to the outside.

A traditional pergola has a semi-open roof and can provide some shade but does not fully protect you, your patio, or your furniture from the natural elements.

For more coverage, you can consider an operable pergola. An operable pergola has a motorized roof, making it a flexible option for multiple seasons and weather.

Benefits of an Operable Pergola

There are several benefits to upgrading your outdoor living space with an operable pergola. Whether you want to extend time with your family and friends outdoors or you want to enjoy time outside to rest, here are just a few of the benefits.

Relaxing Outdoor Living

With the motorized louvers, you can comfortably enjoy your outdoor space from sunrise to sunset. Sun too bright? With the push of a button, you can go from partial shade to complete shade without ever leaving your lounge chair. You choose the amount of shade needed to create a relaxed outdoor living space.

Strong and Durable

Operable pergolas are built with heavy-grade aluminum strong enough to withstand extreme weather. With greater strength than vinyl or wood materials used in traditional pergolas, your operable pergola will stand tall without warping or cracking.

Motorized Design

You can transition from partial shade to full shade at the press of a button. With the motorized design of your pergola, you barely have to lift a finger to close or open the roof.

Made for All Seasons

These pergolas are built to last and can benefit you at all times of the year.

Open the roof of your pergola and use your fire pit as you sit in your comfortable rattan furniture and enjoy the warmth of the fire and the company of friends and family.

Custom Design

If a traditional operable pergola isn’t the best size or shape for your space, consider custom designing a pergola based on your wants and needs. Custom designing your pergola allows you to choose the style, location, size, and features of your pergola to match your outdoor setup.

Once your design is ready, our pergola installation team will provide you with a smooth transition to better outdoor living without any of the hassles of building it yourself to ensure a high-quality living space.
