Decks with Shade Pergolas by Archadeck

Shade Pergola for a Deck by Archadeck

When it comes to our weather, St. Louis is often called ‘the land of the four seasons’.

And it’s not uncommon for St. Louisians to experience ‘all four seasons’ in the span of one week!

One day folks might be wearing snow boots and the next day, backyard BBQ’s are happening.

Really… it’s true.

Of course, we have some dreary and cold days; however, by and large, St. Louis is filled with sunshine during all four-seasons.

But by now you’re probably thinking, “What does all this weather-talk have to do with pergolas?”

Well, anyone who lives in our area can attest our weather can be downright crazy at times; subsequently, homeowners living ‘in this neck of the woods’ definitely take weather into account when considering outdoor home improvements including shade options.

So it’s not surprising that as contractors, we’re often asked, ‘What’s the best way to add shade for my deck or patio?”

In response, we’ve posted a few ‘picture perfect’ pergola designs from Archadeck that are attractive, practical and affordable.
