Our custom deck Omaha team not only designs and builds beautiful outdoor entertaining space, but also enhances that space with accessories and functional shade coverings. The summer sun is hot, and a custom pergola can provide the small bit of shade your family and guests need to enjoy a summer’s day on your custom deck.

A pergola is a shade covering with cross rafters and no walls. Pergolas provide protection from the sun, while offering air flow. Adding a pergola maximizes your usable outdoor space by adding an area for outdoor furniture that is somewhat protected from the elements. A pergola creates visual interest, and you can add flowering vines to grow up and over the rafters and down the vertical posts. A pergola can also be decorated by hanging planters or other design elements from the rafters.

A clear advantage to a pergola is that you can determine how much sun and shade the pergola provides. Our Omaha deck builders can survey the area taking into account the season, time of day and the angle at which the sun shines to determine how to angle the rafters. By varying the size, spacing and orientation of the rafters, shade is truly customizable.

A beautiful outdoor entertaining space for your Omaha home doesn’t have to be JUST a custom deck. At Decks, Decks & More Decks our custom deck experts enjoy taking a custom deck and adding accessories and functional shade to ensure customers get the most out of their custom deck.
