Garage Pergola Kits: Add Flair to Your Home's Design
As a homeowner, you take pride in your homeís appearance and strive to make it beautiful. You could change up the siding, install new windows, create beautiful landscaping and so much more. There is one way to update and add curb appeal to the exterior of your home without a full outdoor renovation - a garage pergola kit may just be the solution you are looking for.
An easy way to update the look of your garage is to add an eyebrow pergola over the garage doors. A high-quality eyebrow pergola is easy to install as over-the-window pergolas or a wall mounted garage pergola. It is a simple way to enhance the look of your home without spending a fortune.
What Is a Garage Pergola Kit?
A garage pergola and an eyebrow pergola refer to the same thing. They may also be called a wall pergola, visor pergola or garage door pergola kit as well. They are short, cantilevered pergolas that are attached directly to your homeís exterior structure, without any vertical columns. An eyebrow pergola extends a short distance away from the structure ó typically about two to three feet ó so there is no need for additional support posts.
Garage pergolas donít need to be installed above garage doors only. Garage door pergolas or eyebrow pergolas actually make great accents above a window, door or garage. You can even use multiple eyebrow pergola systems to create a longer pergola that runs along your homeís front exterior. This adds some depth, dimension and texture to the area on your home wherever you choose to install it.
Garage Pergolas are traditionally made of wood. While you can still choose to add a wood accent pergola to your home, those in favor of a longer lasting and lower maintenance option may look to vinyl eyebrow pergolas as a better choice for their exterior project.
One solution for Vinyl Garage Pergola Kits comes from Heartland Pergolas.
5 Key Benefits of Heartland Pergolas brand of Eyebrow Pergolas
While traditional pergolas use wood or wood inserts, that can weaken over time, Heartland Pergolasí garage pergola kits are with high-quality, premium extruded vinyl sleeves around a heavy-duty aluminum core.
This creates a pergola that can withstand strong winds, rain and snow, and will never rust, rot, crack, warp or peel. Additionally, the vinyl will never fade, chalk or weather. You wonít have to worry about sanding or painting like you would with a garage pergola made from wood.
2. Modern Alternative to a Window Awning
Even though a garage pergola is small, one benefit is that it can provide a little shade from harsh overhead sun. While you may not necessarily need shade for the garage, this can be particularly helpful when placed over windows that receive strong sunlight. If certain spaces in your home are prone to heating up or are overly bright during the day, the filtered light of he pergola can help.
The louvered purlins, (fancy for diagonal slats) are angled at 45 degrees and spaced at intervals to provide 75 percent shade for the space below.
