When you come home from work, you’re usually ready to relax. Reading a good book in the shade, sinking into the hot tub, or having a drink on the patio with your significant other all probably sound attractive when you’ve finished a long day at the office.
No matter what type of backyard you currently have, installing a functional and visually stunning shelter from the hot sun is crucial to ensure you can comfortably enjoy your outdoor space no matter what the weather. Our New Orleans pergolas and gazebos can provide shade, comfort, and utility while stylistically enhancing your home and landscape.
Big Easy’s contractors have installed countless outdoor gazebos in the city – from elegant garden structures to practical deck shelters. If you’d like to enjoy your yard without the harsh heat from the summer sun, give us a call today!
New Orleans architecture has always been distinctive. Cast-iron balconies, bright colors, ornate accents, double galleries, and more distinguish our unique blend of Creole and European influences. Pergolas and gazebos fit this aesthetic perfectly while providing a practical enhancement to your landscape.
When you work with us, we’ll help you find pergolas and gazebos in the same style as your home. Matching your exterior design and your pergola style will add a level of sophistication to your property.
In addition, we’ll work with you to discover your goals and desired uses for your outdoor gazebo and design functionality into aesthetic beauty. For example, do you plan to host, install a hot tub, lounge, or workout in your gazebo?
Thinking of moving in the near future? New Orleans homes can increase in value significantly after the installation of pergolas and gazebos. For some, this increase is as much as 5-10% – that’s $30,000 extra for a $300,000 home. If you’re thinking of selling your house, contact us to find out the best-selling pergolas and gazebos in the city to add value to your home.
Various styles exist for New Orleans homeowners’ pergolas and gazebos. Some of these include:
If you’d like to add a landscaping highlight to your yard, try a freestanding gazebo or pergola surrounded by bright flora. Choose whichever style appeals to you more: pergolas are generally square with cross beams but no roof, while gazebos are round or octagonal with a roof.
If you’re interested in patio shelter, a pergola is a popular choice. Pergolas don’t completely cover you or your guests from the sun – instead, they lightly shade an area, while offering an open and airy aesthetic.
Many of our New Orleans customers choose to install a pergola or gazebo as a shelter for their hot tub. When deciding which to build, ask yourself: when do I prefer to use my hot tub? Do I ever want to use it when the weather is cold and rainy, or am I more interested when it’s sunny and clear outside?
A bit larger than the hot tub shelter, a pool-shelter pergola can provide relief from the hot sun while allowing plenty of light for pool activities.
Some of the best memories can be made around the fire, roasting marshmallows, playing games, and telling old stories. For those who enjoy using their fire pit in the rain, a gazebo provides helpful shelter from the elements.
If you enjoy coming home and reading a good book outdoors, a gazebo or pergola can make your favorite reading spot more weather-friendly. Some people furnish their gazebo with fluffy couches for rainy-day reading, while others prefer to lounge under a pergola on sunny days.
There are a variety of functions your pergola or gazebo can serve. In addition, we can build your pergola or gazebo out of a variety of materials. These include:
Waterproof fabric roof: This provides increased shade and rain shelter while allowing some sunlight to filter through.
Glass roof: A glass roof will keep the rain off your porch while providing full sunlight on sunny days. These roofs can be treated to prevent heat buildup inside your pergola.
Metal roof: Many homeowners appreciate metal roofing because it’s long-lasting and affordable, and comes in a variety of colors and styles.
Wood floor: For a traditional, natural look, we’ll install the floor of your pergola or gazebo with stained wood.
Concrete floor: If you’d prefer a longer-lasting floor, we can pour a concrete floor instead of installing a wood floor. Concrete comes in a variety of colors and styles; call us for more information.
