How to Separate Subpar Pergolas from Outstanding Ones – Advice from the Experts at TEMO

More and more homeowners throughout the country are choosing to install pergolas at their properties. These beautiful outdoor living structures provide partial shade from the sun, as well as incredible beauty thanks to their Mediterranean-inspired design. With a pergola installed, you’ll completely transform your backyard in an affordable and easy way.

But, before you start this home improvement project, it’s important to recognize what separates subpar pergolas from outstanding ones. These factors include:

  • Material – A pergola can be made from many different materials, like vinyl, fiberglass, extruded aluminum, wood, PVC, and more. You want to choose a material that is sturdy, weather resistant, and low maintenance. Extruded aluminum fits the bill in every category.
  • Finish – Just like materials, there are multiple options for finishes, like liquid paint or electrostatic. Electrostatic stands apart because it is virtually maintenance free and will not crack, peel, or warp.
  • Lattice – Some pergolas have a straight lattice that provides decent protection from the sun’s rays, but a curved lattice allows you to receive more shade coverage in a functional way.

Since 1970, TEMO has been manufacturing pergolas and other outdoor living products for homeowners throughout the United States. Crafted from extruded aluminum and featuring an electrostatic finish and curved lattice, a TEMO pergola is exactly what you are looking for. Our pergolas are durable and built to last for decades. They even come with Italian-inspired columns in Roma, Florentine, and Venetian styles to further boost the appeal of your backyard.
