At Van Nuys Awning Co.®, the team provides top-quality outdoor canvas covers tailored to your needs and design preferences. Here, we delve deeper into a garage makeover with pergola options to give you a better idea of whether it’s a viable option for your property. 

What is an Overhead Garage Door Pergola All About?

A pergola over garage door areas, affectionately known to many as a garage door trellis or eyebrow pergola, is simply a canopy installed above your garage door. It’s a short, cantilevered pergola. You attach it directly to the exterior structure without any vertical columns.

This pergola extends roughly two to three feet away from the structure to give you additional space and shade. It creates a type of carport that makes storing extra stuff possible. It’s also a stylish feature that could really elevate the property’s curb appeal.

Type of Pergolas To Consider For Your Garage

Why install a pergola above garage entrances only? Pergolas make outstanding accents above any windows or doors. 

You may prefer the traditional aesthetic of wood. However, you can also opt for low-maintenance vinyl garage door pergolas for something more durable. Check-in with professionals like Van Nuys Awning Co.® to chat about the options.

Four Reasons to Install a Pergola Over Garage Doors

Putting up a pergola over your garage door area has countless benefits for your home’s exterior, including the following:

#1 Pergolas Enhance Your Property’s Curb Appeal

Is your garage door uninspiring? Add a pergola over this area for an eye-catching architectural addition. Whether you’re doing a complete garage makeover or boosting your backyard’s appearance, you can’t go wrong with an eyebrow pergola.

#2 A Garage Door Pergola Provides Great Weather Protection

Could a pergola over your garage door protect your property against harsh elements? Yes! Standing or storing things under it is also safer than being out in the open.

#3 Pergolas Can Protect Your Garage’s Windows

Regardless of how well you care for windows, things happen. Why not consider a garage pergola to protect the structure’s windows with extra cover? They might last longer. 

#4 Pergolas Allow You To Leave Your Garage Door Open More

Suppose you enjoy hanging out in your garage, but you also love the outdoors. In that case, you can have the best of both worlds by installing a garage door pergola and leaving the door open!
