Business owners are often surprised to discover new options in patio cover, breaking the traditional wood mold to incorporate the latest in metal pergola technology. The market continues to expand in the metal arena, with everyone from homeowners to corporate chains leaving wood by the wayside in favor of far more functional and durable aluminum options. What’s the best choice for your business?
Static or Dynamic?
Traditional wood patio cover options often cause commercial conundrums: Go with a solid style roof and block out inclement weather, but also sunshine? Opt for lattice-style design, and gain ambiance at the expense of losing clientele to rainy or snowy weather? Luckily, louvered aluminum options deliver the ultimate in flexibility, providing both ambiance and shelter. Simply crank or program by remote or smartphone, and dial-in comfort from sun to shade and rain to shelter, with a variety of options in-between. Louvers quickly and easily adjust from zero to 160 degrees, forming complete rain protection as well as providing snow support and wind resistance. Withstanding Denver’s harshest weather, from the glaring sun to hurricane-force winds, such metal options are unmatched in durability.
Low-Tech, High-Maintenance – Or High-Tech, Low Maintenance?
Whether wood is left natural or painted and color-matched, static wood pergola structures require regular staining, painting, and pest treatment protection. Lighter, faster, and easier to install, aluminum structures require little to no annual maintenance, and with the latest in iLouver smartphone technology for your Apple or Android compatible device, can be programmed without the need for you or your employees to leave your station. Quickly and easily adjust setting between 4 pre-programmed positions, program your pergola roof to different positions based on the time or day, or set it and forget it, allowing tech to automatically react to weather conditions, such as rain and wind.
Common or Customized?
Beyond paint/stain selections, roofing choices, and in lattice-style designs, there is little to find in the way of pergola customization with traditional models. Adjustable aluminum pergolas, however, offer a host of choices to tailor to your business needs, ranging from custom colors, decorative finishes such as faux columns, and even retractable curtains, solar shades, and privacy walls, with the option for built-in accent lighting, heaters, and ceiling fans for comfort. Step it up a notch, and you could even draw customers in with the addition of an automobile-like sunroof-style sliding roof, giving guests access to both shelter and unobstructed sky views at your restaurant, recreational facility, or other place of business.
