Pergolas are more than just an architectural element in your garden or patio; they are an extension of your outdoor living space that combines beauty, comfort and functionality. At Letto Design we understand the need for high quality pergolas that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also meet your specific requirements. In this post we answer some frequently asked questions about pergolas and explain why buying from Letto Design is the best decision for your home in Switzerland.

What is a pergola and what purpose does it serve?

A pergola is a free-standing or lean-to garden structure consisting of vertical posts or columns that support a roof made of transoms and battens. The main purpose of a pergola is to create a shaded outdoor seating area that provides protection from direct sunlight while also being open enough to enjoy the fresh air and natural surroundings. Not only do pergolas serve as a stylish addition to any outdoor space, but they can also expand living space by providing a comfortable place to relax and entertain.

What is a pergola roof?

The roof of a pergola, often referred to as a "louvered roof pergola" or "louvered pergola," typically consists of longitudinal beams that provide partial shade without completely covering the space. The innovation of the slatted pergola allows the slats to be tilted as desired to provide more or less protection from sun and rain, allowing flexible use of the outdoor space at any time of the year.

Why are pergolas often expensive?

The cost of a pergola reflects the quality of the materials, design and functionality. High-quality pergolas, especially those with louvered roofs or motorized functionality, require precise engineering and durable materials to withstand the elements. Additionally, the pergola height and complexity of installation can affect the price. At Letto Design you are not just investing in a pergola, but in a long-term improvement of your outdoor area.

Is it cheaper to buy a pergola or build it yourself?

Although building a pergola yourself may seem more cost-effective at first, it requires time, expertise and the right tools. Buying a pergola from Letto Design gives you the peace of mind that your pergola will be designed and installed by experts, with a guarantee and without the hassle associated with building it yourself.

Does a pergola block the sun?

A pergola can provide sun protection without blocking all light. With a Letto Design slat pergola , you can adjust the level of sun protection by tilting the slats as needed to create the perfect shade for your space.

Can a pergola also be used in winter?
