Do pergolas really block the sun?

Pergolas don’t completely block the sun. It depends on the time of the day- sometimes you may be under direct sunlight if you are under a pergola. However if you want to relax under your Arizona Pergola, you better use a pergola cover. Get a pergola canopy! It fits the dimensions of your pergola structure, giving no room for the sun to sneak in. You can always roll it back, so to let the sun in or not is your choice!

The beamed roof blocks rays from the sun, but not completely. There are no walls too, thus you can sit in the shade, at the same time enjoy lunch with your family in the open space. As mentioned earlier, climbing plants can bring in more shade with natural fragrance and beauty. Arizona Pergola can also enhance the curb appeal of your home.
