Can Pergolas Have Roofs?

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect outdoor living upgrades for your yard, you’ve probably seen pergolas mentioned a few times. But since pergolas have been a popular accessory for hundreds of years it might seem like their definition fluctuates depending on who you ask. If you’ve ever had big questions about pergolas, like if they can have roofs or if they can be freestanding, TEMO is here to help. We can walk you the basics so you can make the right choice for your yard.

What Is a Pergola?

A pergola is an outdoor living accessory with crossbeams atop posts, that create a shaded pathway or seating area. Often, those crossbeams are decorative lattices, like our very own TEMO pergolas. One of the most common uses for a pergola is as a trellis for vines and other plants, creating a practical and beautiful canopy.

If that seems confusing, don’t worry. A pergola is basically one of the simplest designs for creating shade on a patio or in a garden, which is why they’ve remained popular for so many years. But, don’t let their simple design fool you; they’re still plenty useful for homeowners.

Pergola Designs

At TEMO, our pergola designs take classic styles and features and are updated for homeowners. Our options include:

  • Freestanding, perfect for anywhere on your patio
  • Attached, using your home to provide further stability
  • Garden arbors, freestanding almost anywhere in your yard

Operable Pergolas

If you’re still not quite sold on a lattice roof, our innovative operable pergolas are the answer. Operable pergola lattices can be opened or closed, transforming from a lattice-roof pergola to a solid roof patio cover at the push of a button.
