    Do Pergolas Add Value to a Home?

    28th April 2022

    Without knowing the type of pergola, the quality of the final product, the character of your home and the impact it makes on your overall property and lifestyle, it's a difficult question to answer. In most cases, pergolas add both aesthetic and functional value to a home so that it could be a wise investment for now and the future.

    Aesthetically, a pergola can be a beautiful addition to any garden. They are often made from wood or metal and can be customised to match the style of your home. Pergolas can also be decorated with plants or lights, making them even more visually appealing. In addition, pergolas can provide much-needed shading on hot summer days, yet you can add a cover capable of working well in wind and heavy rain.


    Expands your outdoor living area

    The addition of a pergola to your lawn, deck, or patio will increase its value and make it more comfortable for you and potential buyers alike. You'll be able to enjoy spending time in this outdoor space and invite friends over without worrying about the size constraints that were previously placed on how much space there was for relaxing and entertaining.


    Increases Market Price of the Home

    This humble structure makes the whole building more spacious and comfortable, but when scaled up correctly, you also boost the aesthetic value. This is a valuable selling point that can add to the market price of your home.


    Improves the character of your home and garden

    With a pergola in your garden, your entire property will appear more luxurious. The common aesthetical problem of the house and garden appearing separate from each other will be solved. You'll have the perfect transition from your home to your garden with some much-needed space to relax in the sunshine (or shade) whilst enjoying the outdoors.



    Pergolas are highly customisable, with options to add sliding glass panels, lighting, plants, awnings, covers and heating. Therefore, you can always use pergolas as a garden hideaway and enjoy your garden views regardless of the weather. Thus, by installing one, you become capable of spending some quality time with your loved ones in your garden and enjoying nature.
