Are Pergolas Good for Shade?

Are Pergolas Good for Shade Springfield PAIf you’re searching for a way to provide shade over a patio or another area of your yard, a pergola might not be the first solution that springs to mind. Because pergola roofs are made up of spaced-apart louvers, many people assume that they don’t provide much shade, if any. That’s actually not the case. While pergolas don’t completely block out the sun’s rays, they do cast a decent amount of shade, making the area beneath much more comfortable on a warm summer afternoon. TEMO pergolas, in particular, provide considerable shade thanks to their curved louvers, which offer greater sun protection than standard flat louvers.

For additional sun protection, consider TEMO’s operable pergolas. These state-of-the-art pergolas allow you to transition between open louvers and a solid roof, similar to that of a patio cover, just by pressing a button. So, if you’re hesitant to have a patio cover installed because you like the look and feel of a pergola, but you also require more shade than a traditional pergola could provide, operable pergolas offer the perfect combination of the two.
