Why You Should Add a Pergola to Your Business
  • Opening Intro -

    The world is full of different commercial buildings.

    Many of these buildings have some kind of outdoor space, whether they’re in retail, the food industry, or another industry.


While some businesses have made use of their outdoor space by providing outdoor dining for customers or a work area for employees, there are additional ways to improve this exterior space with a shelter.

Adding shelter, specifically a pergola, allows your business to make complete use of outside spaces regardless of weather, and both your customers and employees will thank you for it. Keep reading to learn why you should add a pergola to your business.

Create a Kid-Friendly Space

Families with young children like to go out shopping, dining, and exploring, but young children are sometimes still learning the patience required for these experiences. Give parents a hand by creating a kid-friendly space outside with a pergola.

A pergola will provide the shade and weather protection parents want, and being outdoors gives children the opportunity to safely run around without distracting other clients. Parents will thank you, and kids will want to come back.

Increase Your Useable Space

Unless you want to spend money moving buildings or expanding your current location, you’re stuck with the square footage that you have. If you already have an outdoor area you’re using, then you’re ahead of the game.

The problem is that it isn’t useable all the time. When spring rain, summer sun, and autumn leaves hit, your outdoor space isn’t comfortable and doesn’t expand your square footage. Protect your exterior with a pergola or other type of freestanding outdoor structure to keep the area useable regardless of weather conditions.

Even if your business is in a predominately cold area, a pergola can help your business. With coverage overhead and the ability to add privacy shades to the side of your freestanding outdoor structure, you can create an outdoor space that’s protected from harsh winter weather.

Offer Versatility

Installing a pergola at your business offers versatility no matter what work you do. If you’re an office building, then you can offer a protected outdoor workspace for employees. This will be enjoyable for them in good weather and will benefit you as well since working outside can help promote productivity and focus.

If you’re a restaurant, you can offer your customers the choice between indoor and outdoor seating. Giving your customers freedom of choice beyond just your menu will leave them feeling extra satisfied with their experience. If you’re in retail, a pergola can protect wares outside, giving shoppers the opportunity to enjoy nice weather while browsing your wares. Providing them with this unique outdoor shopping experience is a great way to stay ahead of your competitors.

You should add a pergola to your business because it creates a kid-friendly area, increases your useable space, and offers versatility to your employees and customers. While pergolas won’t make your exterior perfect, the protection they provide will make the area more comfortable, which will please whoever uses it.
