A pergola is an overhead structure that extends from your home to add more sheltered space to your outdoor living area. It can function as a beautiful shaded retreat and serve as a centerpiece for your landscape.

Pergolas have been around for centuries and were seen in ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian civilizations. Installing a custom outdoor pergola or shade structure for your home can make your outdoor living area much more functional, as you’ll be able to enjoy it in any weather, sunny, rainy or clear.

Add a pleasant relaxation space to your outdoors

Installing a pergola will add a pleasant relaxation area to your yard where you can sit and relax with a book or your friends and family. It will provide you with shade whenever you want to take a break from your pool or yardwork.

You can hang plants on your pergola to add to its visual appeal or even train flowering vines to grow on it. You can install built in seating or simply put furniture your pergola. We can create pergolas using a wide range of different materials, including painted or stained woods.

At Carnahan, we build custom pergolas for outdoor living areas like pools, spas, kitchens and gardens.  They can be made to attach directly to your home, or be free standing with hurricane rated anchors. We serve residents in The Woodlands, TX, Spring, TX, Tomball, TX, and more.

Cedar is the material of choice for most of our pergolas.  Other materials can be used installed on top of the structure to shield from weather and sun, while still allowing some light to pass through. Carnahan can also build shade structure to match your house such as arbors, canopies, and patio extensions.

Your pergola will be weather resistant

Your custom outdoor pergola will be designed to last and function in all types of Texas weather. There are important weather proofing steps that have to be performed in order to ensure this. There are also specific types of wood or other materials that should be used for your pergola.

By hiring us to install your pergola, you will ensure that it will be an effective shade structure for your home for years without having to worry about maintaining it other than some basic steps that we can recommend.
