The Pros and Cons of a Pergola in Wilmington, Delaware

The great con of a patio cover is that you can't take it with you if you move. The cost of a pergola installation increases the value of a home and elevates your lifestyle while you live there. You might also have invested in walkways and outdoor kitchens in addition to your pergola.

However, if you move, the cost of your pergola installation is now a sunk cost. The ultimate pro of a patio cover is that you can now experience the height of outdoor living in Delaware. Your backyard will evolve from just another green space to a curated corner of the world designed for your comfort.

What's the Difference Between a Pergola and a Patio Cover?

We're often asked what a patio cover is called, and it's just a pergola! The difference between a pergola and a patio cover is that a pergola is the official name, and a patio cover is the casual name. We often refer to pergolas as patio covers but are happy to switch to using pergolas. It's your prerogative! 

What Types of Patio Covers Are Available in Wilmington, Delaware?

Patio covers, with their breezy, slotted tops, are all about adding a touch of style to your outdoor space, letting just the right amount of sunlight dance through. Patio covers come in all sorts of designs to match exactly your desired style. The various styles include automated patio covers that retract at the push of a button and non-retractable covers that also protect against the elements.  If you want it, First Class Lawn Care can build it. 


How Much Value Does a Patio Add to a House?
Adding a patio cover to your home can significantly enhance its appeal and usability, potentially increasing your home's value. While the exact impact on property value varies by market and the patio's quality, a well-designed outdoor space is always an investment. This addition not only improves your home's aesthetic and functional aspects but also appeals to potential buyers looking for outdoor living spaces in Delaware. 
Is It Better to Attach a Pergola to a House?

Attaching a patio cover (pergola) to your house can offer several benefits, including enhanced architectural cohesion and convenience. This method allows for a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, improving the overall aesthetic appeal of your home. Additionally, an attached pergola might require fewer supports, which can reduce costs and complexity in construction. It is important to remember that patio covers will have natural weather over time, and the patio cover attached to the house will share any snow load on the roof.
