Pergolas have just become a lot smarter

Imagine if your deck could provide a shaded area and privacy all on its own - no need for an awning, umbrella, or patio furniture. With an automatic pergola, that's now a reality. These systems can be added to any deck, and they open and close at the touch of a button. Plus, they come in a variety of styles to match any décor.

Why an automatic pergola?

Here are three of the top reasons that homeowners invest in an automatic pergola.

1. Protect furniture

An automatic pergola is not just any pergola - it's a smart one. With automatic sensors that close the pergola when rain arrives, you'll have your outdoor deck furniture protected against the elements. When the sun comes out again and the water has drained, your fancy pergola will open up again. Now that's smart!

2. You can control it remotely

If you are not home and unfavorable weather blows in, you can simply close your pergola to protect your deck and whatever is on it with one simple touch of the button. All you have to do is open up the app, and voila! There is no need to rush home or worry about how the weather will damage your prized possessions.

3. Command by voice

Yes, you read that right. You can now tell your pergola to open or close using only your voice. You can create the perfect ambiance when you are hosting guests on your deck with one simple command. While this is incredibly convenient, it's also quite the way to impress your friends and family!

An automatic pergola designed to last the ages

Not only are they beautiful, but our automatic pergolas are also built to last. The aluminum structure is powder-coated to resist corrosion, and the roof panels are made of durable polycarbonate that won't fade in the sun.

So, you can rest assured that your pergola will provide years of enjoyment.

7 good reasons to install a 3 Brothers Decking automatic pergola on your deck

If you are wondering why you should install an automatic pergola from 3 Brothers Decking, here are 7 things to consider.

1. Versatility

You'll have the option to partially open your pergola to let just the right amount of light in, or close it completely to block out the harsh heat of summer. You can also draw it completely back if you'd like to sit back and enjoy a starry evening with friends and family.

2. Waterproof

Our automatic pergolas are made with a waterproof material that will keep you dry even in the heaviest of downpours. You can enjoy your outdoor covered space whether it is raining or if the sun is shining. Snowing outside? No problem. Put on something warm and enjoy your outdoor deck area knowing you are safely covered up above.

3. Insulation

When closed, your retractable roof will provide an insulating barrier against heat and cold. This can help to lower your energy bills as you won't have to rely on air conditioning or heating as much. This is especially important if you have walls around your pergola, whether they be permanent or those that are retractable. Enjoy a cold winter's night in the warmth of a well-insulated automatic pergola on your deck.

4. Durability

Our automatic pergolas are designed to withstand all kinds of weather conditions - from high winds to snow and hail. A 3 Brothers Decking pergola is designed to last the ages, using only the highest quality materials and workmanship.

5. Protection

As we mentioned above, not only will an automatic pergola protect you from the elements, but it will also extend the life of your outdoor furniture by keeping it out of the sun and rain. With the simple press of a button or a voice command, you can close your 3 Brothers Decking pergola and enjoy your deck area as you should.

6. Expansive

With a retractable roof, you can effectively double the size of your outdoor living space. Imagine being able to entertain guests in your garden no matter what the weather is like! This is a huge benefit to having an automatic pergola in your outdoor areas, especially on a deck.

7. Add value

A well-designed retractable roof will add value to your home as it will be seen as a desirable feature by potential buyers. It's a great way to make your home stand out from the crowd and it will certainly add a lot of curb appeal. So, why not invest in an automatic pergola today and add significant value to your property?

Choosing the right automatic pergola for your home

When choosing an automatic pergola for your home, there are a few things you need to consider.

1. The size of your deck or patio area

You need to make sure that the pergola you choose is the right size for your outdoor living space. It's no good having a massive pergola if it's going to dominate your entire deck area. A quality decking company like 3 Brother's Decking will help guide you on what is best suited for your home.

2. The type of roofing

There are two main types of roofing available for automatic pergolas - polycarbonate and metal. Polycarbonate is a clear plastic that is lightweight and shatter-resistant. Metal roofs are usually made from aluminum or steel and they are very strong and durable. Both types of roofing have their own benefits and it really comes down to personal preference as to which one you choose.

3. The style of the pergola

There are many different styles of automatic pergolas available on the market, so it's important to choose one that fits in with the overall style of your home. Make sure you take your time browsing to find the perfect one for your home.

4. The price

Of course, price is always going to be a factor when choosing any type of home improvement product. Automatic pergolas can vary significantly in price, depending on the size, style, and features. It's important to set a budget before you start shopping so that you don't overspend. We will work with you to choose the perfect pergola to suit your budget.
