When you look at photos of this gorgeous pergola-deck-patio in Greensboro, can you tell where the customer spent a little extra and where they made the budget-friendly decisions? Probably not, because this fabulous combination space was created with an artistic eye, but is imminently practical at the same time.
By choosing an open air porch with a pergola and poly carbonate roof instead of building a screened porch or sunroom, the client saved thousands and still gets lots of fresh air and protection from the elements. The two ceiling fans also provide a refreshing breeze when things get a little warm in July and August. The bump out creates architectural and visual interest and echoes the style of the existing home, creating a sense of harmony.
They saved on material costs by choosing pressure treated pine and stamped concrete over a more expensive alternatives. This Greensboro patio could have been done as a paver or stone hardscape, but by using as stamped concrete, they were able to choose the color and design to customize the patio exactly to their taste and decorating plans. The boards are oriented on an angle moving away from the home’s French doors toward the stairs, inviting everyone into the yard. The wide transition spaces perform a similar service.
The Greensboro pergola and roof combination lets in light while providing some shade and sun protection. At the same time, it’s a huge savings over building a traditional roof structure with shingles. They didn’t skimp on space on this job. There is ample room for seating, eating, standing or moving around. This whole project is a wonderful example of investing in the areas of your outdoor living space where you will see the greatest return for your money.
