If you have ever been indoors and wanted to feel like you were outdoors, a Pavilion would be a great option to add to your Oklahoma City outdoor living space. Pavilions are one of the best covered patio options. Pavilions have a pitched roof with a big cathedral ceiling that makes your space feel about three times more than what it actually is. You can have all of the feelings of an indoor space outside. Ceiling fans, screens, TVs, and much more. These amazing structures are the perfect spot to entertain big parties and will turn anyone’s head when looking at it.

Types of Pavilions
There are basically two types of pavilions. Freestanding pavilions and pavilions that tie into your house. Freestanding pavilions can be put anywhere and are great around swimming pools or for creating an intimate spot in your backyard. The other type of pavilion would be a tied in pavilion in which it is tied into the back of your house. Our goal is always to make this tie-in look like it was never an afterthought and to look as natural as possible. There are a few things that would prevent this style pavilion from being built but most of the time your roof can be altered to have this option.
Key features about a pavilion
All of our designs are built out of 100% Cedar. They are custom built, so any size is up for grabs. Our Pavilions come with shingles that match your existing house so that we can match the look and flow of your house exactly. You can pick your color of stain for your cedar which will usually complement your Oklahoma City outdoor living space. The underneath of our pavilions can be a flat bottom, or a cathedral ceiling based on what your goals are and what you were trying to accomplish. We have many options to choose from and many examples to show you.

Pavilion vs Pergola
Choosing a pavilion over a pergola is one of the most commonly asked questions we get when trying to decide what is the best covered patio option. Ultimately it is up to what you like the best but there are many factors to consider when you’re building your perfect Oklahoma City outdoor living space. Seeing your area in person is why we always like to schedule an appointment.
Pergolas are flat and allow sunlight to come through but a pavilion has a solid roof and will make you feel more like you were underneath an existing part of your house. The main difference between a pavilion and a pergola would be price. Pavilions typically cost about 30 to 40% more than a pergola. Another difference between a pavilion and a pergola would be the openness of how a pavilion is built and how you feel underneath it. Our cathedral ceilings really make you feel like you are under a much bigger area rather than a pergola that feels a little closed off. You will get more light and wind flow under a pavilion. Ultimately, choosing the right option for you depends on your specific goals and how your backyard space is set up.
We offer a three-year warranty on all of our Pavilions that tie into your existing house.
