The Difference Between Pergolas and Pavilions

Pavilion, Indianapolis, INPergolas and pavilions are entirely different structures. You can enhance your outdoor living space's usability by installing a pergola or a pavilion. Both are standalone outdoor structures that can enhance a landscape's detail and functionality.

There are some critical distinctions between the two which can make one a better match for your specific needs than the other. Here we take a detailed look at what these are. The information will help you make a better-informed decision about the structure you want.

What Is a Pergola?

Pergolas feature an open roof that reveals the joists, slats, and beams above. These structures are usually made of wood (though they may also be made of other materials including aluminum or composite).

They provide shade, while adding charming architectural detail to your backyard. However, they will not shield you from the weather if you do not opt for a retractable roof. Wooden pergolas are an excellent addition to a backyard, and we can design and install these for you. 

What Is a Pavilion?

A pavilion has a roof and sometimes even a well-finished ceiling. It is often referred to as a "home without walls" because it can protect you from the elements, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor area even in inclement weather. If you also have a patio kitchen, it makes sense to install it in a pavilion that provides protection from the elements.

Pavilions are normally larger and more costly than pergolas. We at Quality Built Pergolas work hard to adapt the appearance of your custom pavilion to the architectural styling of your home. If you own a larger property, we can design and install a proportionally larger pavilion where you can have backyard parties or entertain guests. 

Pergola or Pavilion - Which Is a Better Solutions for You?

Choosing between a pergola and a pavilion would primarily depend on your ideas, preferences, and your budget. While these two features are quite different, we can handle design and installation of either. 

We go beyond to ensure that the outdoor structure we design, and build suits your property perfectly. After all, they are one component of a larger landscape design concept, and it is essential that everything complement one another.

Additionally, we believe that it is critical for the structure to appear as if it was intended to be there, not as though it was placed in your backyard as an afterthought. All these considerations go into your decision to add a pergola or pavilion to your backyard.
