Houston Pergolas For Backyard Shade – Lone Star Patio Builders

Pergolas are simply backyard shade structures which are also known as shade arbors or lattice.  Cedar and aluminum pergolas are only intended to offer partial shade and typically feature a latticed roof.  Also known as Alumawood, lattices or arbors, a pergola can have a wide variety of functions in our Houston climate.  We build shade arbors and pergolas Houston clients find both attractive & affordable in both aluminum & cedar materials.

Cedar or Aluminum Pergolas and Shade Arbors can:

    • Be built into virtually any residential setting.
    • Be built into virtually any shape and design.
    • Pergolas are available in cedar, aluminum or treated pine.

Pergolas & backyard shade arbors for Houston backyards

Key design characteristics of most backyard pergola construction projects include:

    • Rafter spacing can be customized for your preferred amount of shade.
    • Cedar can be painted or stained to any color.
    • Custom shade arbor design options are available to make your pergola watertight just like a patio cover.
    • Patio lighting, electrical modification and ceiling fan options are always available.


Your choice of construction material will depend on whether or not you prefer a more rustic cedar appearance or a more contemporary painted look.  When selecting pergola materials you should also keep maintenance in mind.  A cedar pergola does require a coat of sealer every few years to protect against wood rot and the effects of weathering.  Alumawood requires no maintenance and comes with a lifetime warranty.  Most of all, the Alumawood with Kynar 500 warranty protects your project against peeling and color fading.  We created a list of frequently asked questions to help you further explore your options.
