An open top patio cover - often referred to as a pergola - can offer shade and high-design at a lower price point than a traditional patio cover. A louvered structure can offer the best of both worlds as it can allow a pergola to close with the push of a button. Choosing an open-top patio cover in Texas allows for an ideal blend of outdoor and indoor living, providing shade while still allowing plenty of natural light and airflow.

Benefits of Open Top & Louvered Patio Covers

When compared with a traditional patio cover, an open top pergola is a much smaller investment.
Because it can open and close mechanically, a louvered patio cover has utility in any weather.
With partial shade or complete shading available, you can get outside during the summer in Texas.
Whether cedar, aluminum or steel, it will add stunning appeal to your backyard space.

Open Top & Louvered Patio Cover Design Options

Louvered Cover

One of the coolest technological advancements over the last few years, a louvered patio cover allows the beauty of a pergola and the functionality of a patio cover. Having the versatility for either allows you to enjoy your space no matter the weather.

Aluminum Pergola

Lightweight and durable, an aluminum pergola creates a low-maintenance, long-lasting, and eye-catching structure for your patio. It’s also manufactured in a large variety of colors meaning that you’re sure to find the right option to complement your space.

Cedar Pergola

The strong, natural look of a raw cedar pergola just feels like Texas. The wood can be treated and stained so that it can create almost any vibe necessary. Whether a heavy beam, 2-tier or 3-tier selection is made, the right pergola exists for your unique backyard design.
