Home Pergola Design Considerations:
Should I choose an attached or detached home pergola design? Selecting between an attached or freestanding pergola style is one of many choices that will get you to your goal of designing your dream outdoor space. Though the final cost is similar between like-sized attached and detached residential pergolas, there are many facets to these two distinctive options to consider. Our residential pergola professionals will break down the pros and cons of these different aluminum pergola designs in this segment.
Attached Residential Pergola Pros & Cons
- Daily use
Attached aluminum pergolas function as an extension of your living space, facilitating a seamless transition between indoors and out.
- Weather protection
With an attached louvered pergola, you can move from the interior of your home to the porch or patio without worrying about rain or snow exposure. Because attached pergolas share at least one side with your home, you can also take advantage of added shelter, as the side of your home will block sun and precipitation. For west or south facing patios, the protection of an attached pergola can also extend inside your home, providing a shield from harsh sunlight and reducing AC use and energy bills.
Pergolas attached to a home (or other outdoor building) are more structurally secure than freestanding ones. They share the stability of the structure, which also provides added protection against the elements. For this reason, permitting is typically required for attached designs. However, because fewer posts are needed (compared to freestanding pergolas), this offsets the cost.
- Design considerations
Attached pergolas become a part of your home, fitting its design seamlessly. Because fewer posts are required, less space is lost to structural components, and a less intrusive setup that does not block windows, doors or monopolize available space is possible.
- Accessories and options
You can ensure added weather protection and comfort with an attached design, particularly when paired with adjustable pergola accessories like retractable motorized screens and curtains. Only a maximum of three sides need screen or curtain coverage for complete weather protection. Other pergolas accessories, such as heaters and outdoor TVs, are also easier to add to attached pergolas due to their proximity to utilities in your home.

Hi Kenny. I just wanted to write and let you know I absolutely love my fence. I was hesitant to go with your company because you were the highest price, but I’m so glad I did. It looks incredible and Tyler did an awesome job. He built it exactly as you planned it to be built. Thank you!
