Similarities and Difference in Patio Covers and Pergolas

Similarities between patio covers and pergolas:

  • Provide shade (partial or full)
  • Attached or detached to the residence
  • Can include electrical packaging with recessed LED lights, scones, floodlights, fans, and additional outlets.
  • Posts or columns are typically 6×6 or 8×8
  • Most need concrete piers before construction of the structure
  • Allow for variations of roof designs, layouts, and pitches

Differences between patio covers and pergolas:

  • A patio cover can be waterproofed with roofing and shingles to match the design of your home.
  • A pergola is commonly open to the elements, but we can provide you with a polycarbonate top or tin-top depending on your objectives and design.
  • Patio cover roofs are installed with asphalt, tile, metal, or cement shingles to match your residence.
  • Patio Cover ceilings have options.
  • Patio covers allow dedicated circuit/attic runs for electrical wiring to be hidden. Where it is commonly seen in pergolas to see exposed conduit running to electrical components (fans, switches, etc.), because of lack of ceiling enclosure to hide those electrical lines.
  • If you’ve opted to stain or seal your pergola, the frequency of re-staining and re-sealing your pergola depends on your climate and the type of stain or sealant you choose. Timeframes range from every year to every 2-3 years.
