Yay! It's that time of year again. Dropping temps, foggy breath, football, snow (if we're lucky) and lighting the firepit! With a little preparation, not only can you enjoy your backyard oasis during the spring and summer months, but all year long! This year it is more important than ever that our outdoor space is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Let's face it, if we're travelling at all, it is far less than in years previous (Thanks covid-19). A well designed and properly built outdoor space can extend the useable all-season square footage of your home significantly.
A covered pergola is a great addition to your outdoor living space. While a fraction of the cost of building an addition onto your home, a properly designed pergola can add just as much useable space! Think of the possibilities...bundled up with your sweetie enjoying the beautiful winter evening while sipping your hot chocolate (or a nice glass of wine, we won't judge), while covered from the elements by the best pergolas OKC has to offer built by your very own Backyard Builder OKC!
When having your backyard pergola, deck or other outdoor feature built, it is important to take Oklahoma's harsh and unique winters into account. Proper anchoring of pergola is extremely important, as we all know Oklahoma is known to have days so windy if you accidentally spread your arms in Edmond you might land on Briarwood elementary schools playground in south OKC! Backyard Builder always takes great care in using the highest rated fastening systems when building your pergola or deck, as well as carefully engineering piers and columns to resist the devastating effects of frost heave.
A correctly pitched pergola roof, combined with a quality polycarbonate roofing system will not only protect you from precipitation as you stay warm and dry beneath, but will also be able to withstand the immense weight put upon it when we get one of those freak ice or snow storms. Make sure your pergola builder is using the best materials and construction techniques so your investment will last for years to come!

Yeah, I know the name is ridiculous, but it's a nickname my family gave me, for real. It's a tragediegh, but what can I say? Guess I'm nostalgic... I'm a full time business owner, entrepreneur, husband, father, part time author and big time deck lover.
