2021 Top Retractable Pergola’s For Small Yards

2021 Top Retractable Pergola’s

The pergola has been around for thousands of years. It originated in ancient Egypt as a simple, functional way to keep one’s head out of the sun while working on the land.

Since then, it has become a permanent, beautiful structure that can be added to both new and existing homes. Besides being simply beautiful, they offer an array of several benefits for homeowners today:

Shade and Privacy All Year Long

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of retractable verandas is that they provide you with shade and privacy year-round, regardless of what time of day or condition Mother Nature throws at you. When closed, they offer complete protection from the sun’s rays as well as unwelcome peering eyes. Because this type of pergola can be rolled away if not needed, homeowners will find themselves needing fewer umbrellas and outdoor furniture pieces than those who have fixed roof structures installed on their property.

Cost-Effective And Easy To Install

Retractable pergolas are cost-effective because homeowners don’t need to do any major home renovations in order to install one. Moreover, you don’t need to choose between a retractable pergola and a fixed structure or maintain both; you can simply roll up your retractable canopy when it’s not needed and either close the windows on the veranda or leave them open for protection from harsh weather like rain and snow.

Increase Your Property Value

If you’re looking to put your home on the market in the near future, adding a retractable pergola will increase its value since most people prefer shaded outdoor living space – especially during those hot summer days. This is especially true if you live in an area with high temperatures year-round, but it isn’t unheard of for buyers who live in cooler climates to expect this feature as well.

A Versatile Addition To The Exterior Of Your Home

Another benefit of retractable pergolas is that they can be installed in all kinds of different locations in your home. For instance, you could install the structure off of your master bedroom or other favorite room to provide shade while you relax indoors. Another option would be to add it off the entryway so you can take advantage of its cooling effect before stepping foot inside. You also have options for installing one at any opening on the exterior of your home, including over decks, patios, and walkways.

Review:

Like: I can tell this product is well engineered from the way the product is packaged, individually labelled and how the parts fit together nicely. The product looked very elegant and the retractable shade is a nice feature. I will put over a sail-shade on top though to prolong the life of the retractable shade material.
Dislike: The posts are made of aluminum, very lightweight and may not be as study as wood or steel, however this is somewhat of an advantage in terms of the weight load on my composite floating deck. Also, when it is hot, the post would tend to be hot-to the touch so be careful, thinking of putting some kind of insulating material or vinyl cover over the posts.

Great value for what you are paying. Easy to assemble with 2 people. I anchored it down to a concrete slab and it withstood gust of up to 60mph. Only issue is that the retractable tarp tends to get stuck when trying to pull it back to place.

Review:

Item as described. Easy for one person to assemble. I anchored each post to a chair with clamps and stretch chords. Then assembled the outside “rafters” so that it was free standing. I am 75 years old with bad knees, so it took 2 days. Instructions were great.

Review:

This is so nice on our big deck. We created an attractive sitting area with rugs, sectional seating as well as free standing furniture. We anchored it with zip ties to the deck rail on two sides. It does collect water and seeps through a little in a heavy rain. I wouldn’t worry about it unless you have furniture with cushions that aren’t 100% waterproof. We’re happy with the purchase; good price. 2 people to Install is a good idea. We didn’t get the end caps put on yet when these pictures were taken. They’re a nice finishing touch.
