Ice Ice Baby – The Weather is Never Too Cold with Denver Pergolas

Pergolas / March 10, 2016

Blog-DP, KW Denver Pergolas 3-16From one-room updates to full-home makeovers, renovation – and TV shows inspired by renovation projects – are at the height of popularity. Many shows focus on the renovation of living space within the home, and increasingly are venturing outside, taking advantage of available opportunities to ramp up outdoor living space. Think your climate is too cold to take advantage of outdoor living? Think again.

Unleashing opportunity
Rapper-turned-home renovator Vanilla Ice (AKA: Robert Van Winkle) excels at seeing the promise in outdoor renovations. In his renovation TV series’, including Ice My House and The Vanilla Ice Project, the energetic investor doesn’t shy away from pulling all the stops to tame outdoor obstacles.

Making it more (or Advantageous additions)
In a recent episode of Ice My House, Vanilla Ice, better known to friends and crew as Rob, blew away homeowners with his outdoor update of their South Florida home. The star of the makeover? An adjustable pergola. The production’s pergola plans featured an adjustable pergola at the heart of the design, providing not just patio cover, but unbelievable ambiance and year-round climate control far surpassing the average awning.

Conquering climate
One and the same as Denver Pergolas’ Arcadia pergola, the pergola featured in Ice My House was chosen for its unique ability to adapt to any climate, offering varying degrees of sun to shade and total protection from wind, rain, and snow when fully closed. The execution of the outdoor living space renovation in the show with the aluminum pergola demonstrated the pergola’s capacity to not only serve as shade and shelter, but to beautifully define the space as well, gifting the homeowners with the opportunity to finally sit back and enjoy their yard, no matter the weather.

Offering options
Push-button operation and ease-of-installation offered by the motorized pergola’s design made it a snap to install, and the privacy offered by the optional curtains and motorized screens allowed the custom pergola design to go above and beyond anything the homeowner’s dreamed possible for their backyard makeover.

What options would you choose for your fully customizable pergola?

  • Freestanding or attached
  • Custom colors and styles
  • Wood wrapped beams
  • Exterior accents such as decorative columns and trim
  • Outdoor curtains and motorized screens
  • Electric or solar remote control operation
  • Recessed LED accent lighting

Unlike a retractable awning or wooden structure with fixed slats that give partial shade, but no rain protection, this aluminum pergola system can offer full sun, partial to full shade, or shelter thanks to its ingeniously designed adjustable louvered roof system.
