No one understands the need for creating some shade with a wood patio cover Phoenix style more than Phoenix residents. The sun is shining on Chandler, Phoenix, Glendale, Scottsdale, and Tempe during 85% of its daylight hours – more than any other U.S. metro area. Homeowners in Phoenix have a unique challenge with that many days of rays.
An attractive addition to any Phoenix patio that can offset the amount of sun that reaches your pool deck or outdoor patio is a wood pergola. Pergolas offer a way to extend your indoor space to the outdoors that naturally blend the two areas while also adding some shade and a new dimension to an outdoor living room or a backyard kitchen.
Whether you’re an Arizona sports enthusiast, a museum fanatic, an entrepreneur, a gardener, or an adventurer, after you’ve enjoyed your day of work or play it’d be nice to have a place to retreat to in your own backyard. Outdoor structures such as gazebos, awnings, pergolas, and other types of patio covers can be added to an existing patio, or incorporated in to a new design. If you’d like a structure that seamlessly combines the natural elements of your landscape, a wood pergola kit can accomplish your goal. How do you begin to create your vision? First, you’ll need to determine if you want it attached to your house, or stand-alone, and then take measurements based on how much coverage you’d like.

Standard sizes range from 8×8 up to 20×20 that you can order freestanding or attached.
If you’d like a little more coverage, you can add a retractable canopy for extra shade. Canopies can be added to pergola kits size 12×12-20×20 and come in several colors in Sunbrella or Phifertex fabrics. The Sombrero is one of our top selling wood patio covers in Phoenix that we offer and ship free to the Phoenix area, the state of Arizona, or anywhere in the contiguous U.S. and it pairs nicely with a retractable canopy.
