A pergola is an outdoor structure – without an enclosed roof. A verandah is essentially a pergola structure with a fully enclosed roof. Both pergolas and verandahs can easily add to the value of your home and also to it’s beauty.
Pergolas are an excellent way to bring a “nothing” part of your home alive. They add class and beauty. They can also add functionality by providing a way to regulate the amount of light and rain. Family and friends love gathering under verandahs for shade on a hot summer day for a BBQ, or for shelter from the rain in winter (Pets love verandahs for shelter and shade as well).
