Pergola Tulsa | Using a Pergola as Protection Against Weather

You may think that a Pergola Tulsa is only good for keeping you dry when it rains, but there are so many other ways that a Pergola Tulsa will protect you from the weather all year long, not just during rainstorms. During the winter months, which are typically November-February in most states, having a pergola Tulsa will keep you protected from the snowfall. You may not spend a lot of time outside during the winter months because it is so cold outside, but your outdoor kitchen and your patio furniture and your grill and other things will. You can’t move that inside, and you do not want to fill up your garage, so having a pergola Tulsa will protect all of those things from getting covered in snow and sleet and ice, which could increase the wear and tear and lifespan and could possibly do some short term or long term damage.

During the springtime, which is usually March-May, you will experience a lot of rain, and possibly a lot of hail, so a pergola Tulsa will be very convenient to have because you will begin to spend a lot of time outside on your patio during this time of the year. You will be able to sit outside, host gatherings, cookout on your grill, spend time with your kids, and your dogs, and you will stay completely dry the entire time. If you live somewhere that is windy, and you have the type of rain that blows sideways, you might want to consider adding privacy walls to your pergola. These walls come in a variety of styles from solid to lattice designs, and can have shutters installed to allow a breeze when you want it, or to let light in.

The summer months are when you will likely spend the most time outside in your backyard’s outdoor living space enjoying your pergola Tulsa, and you will be glad that you have it. It will provide you with shade, which you will want during the months of June-August when it can become unbearably hot. You would be surprised what a difference it makes in the heat index. It may be ninety degrees outside, and when you walk out into your yard, it could feel like it is over one hundred degrees, and when you step underneath your pergola, it will feel like it is about seventy-eighty degrees depending on the size of your pergola and where it is located. It could provide minimal to maximum shade.

In the fall, the weather is usually ideal for being outside, and you can enjoy the outdoors at any time of the day from morning to evening. The only issue you may run across in the autumn, and into the early winter, is leaves falling from trees. That is, if your pergola happens to be underneath a tree, and in that case, it will catch the leaves as they fall to keep them from ending up all over your patio. All of this is dependent on the roof of your pergola. If you have a solid top pergola, you will be fine, or if you have shingles, like people put on the roofs of pavilions. Otherwise, you will need a polycarbonate roof on your pergola.

If you hire PMH Perfect My Home to design, build, and install your pergola, they will automatically place a polycarbonate roof on top. They also give their customers two different options. Clear plastic or an ultraviolet coated plastic that will keep you even more shaded and will block harmful rays. A pergola also allows you to place a ceiling fan on the roof of your pergola that will keep you cool during the hot summer months. The pergola itself will provide shade while the ceiling fan will create a breeze.

A pergola will also give you a place to mount heaters to keep you warm in the winter, so if you do want to spend time outside when the temperatures are low, you can stay nice and warm with heat radiating down onto you. PMH Perfect My Home not only provides complimentary polycarbonate, but they also have a one year warranty on their craftsmanship and they offer free estimates and for a small refundable fee upon purchase of a project, but they will also create a three-dimensional design allowing customers to see what their project will look like in their own backyard before they commit. Also giving them a chance to make any changes.

They have been in business for over fifteen years and have perfected their process when working on projects.
