Our custom-made Pergola Screens are made from a marine grade quality mosquito netting and bound with a sturdy perimeter webbing, Black Curtains are solution dyed for most robust fade resistance. We also offer white and cream colored curtains. Our netting is far stronger that cheap quality netting found on home improvement aluminum pergolas and made to LAST. We offer mosquito, no-see-um, and shade mesh types.
If you already have a pergola, we'll try to work with what you have though some pergolas are much easier than others and some are just plain impossible. Pergolas and arbors have tops open to the sky, while pavilions have hard top roofs. If you are planning a pergola, give us a call so we can help make sure whatever you make is compatible with our curtains.
This design is simple to configure as there are no protruding rafters and the perimeter for the roof panel is more or less the same perimeter frame used to hang the wall panels. Notice we aren't even concerned that the shape of the roof panel will be non-rectangular. We can cut that! All our eyes look for are nice clear paths and no gaps. The roof panel secures on top and the wall panels hang from the outside of the perimeter fascia board. If you are haven't yet built your pergola, this type is very compatible with Mosquito Netting Curtains.
While this is a very traditional style for pergolas, it is harder to do. Notice that the rafters are on top of the header. A roof panel on top of the rafters and wall panels hanging beneath the beams create what we call little rafter gaps. While we have ideas for rafter gaps involving little panel-ettes, it is less than optimal.
Mosquitoes are D-U-M-B. We emit a combination of chemicals that attract mosquitoes that vector directly towards the scent we emit. When they reach a barrier, they tend to bounce and bounce but not move laterally in search of gaps. The taller your structure, the less likely mosquitoes are to wander up and over the net. However, you never know. There are many species with different behaviors and you may live where there are unusual air currents that blow them up and over. Quite often we'll tell clients to hold off on a roof panel which they can always purchase later, however, before buying a curtain, you DEFINITELY want to have a back up plan for a roof panel BEFORE you discover you are in the "unlucky club" or will not attach to your liking.
When planning a pergola the most important factor is creating a stable and safe structure. You'll want to plan for an overhead box to mount curtains and ensure you have a perfectly flat roof surface for the ceiling panel without "rafter gaps". Some other things to keep in mind are:
All we really need is an overhead box that is stable so that no one gets hurt. For the project on the right, the client only wanted an overhead shade to block the West Texas sun using our shade mesh. They didn't have a bug problem, although this would be enough structure to mount wall panels if they did.
Our most important concern is always quality. Here is an example. The cheap gazebo screens you may have seen on aluminum gazebos at home improvement stores are garbage. You can put your thumb right through it. Our netting is strong enough to lift this 240lb man. Even more, it is "solution dyed" such that the thread is colored and UV protected to its core. It means that your curtains won't fade or rot prematurely. All fasteners are stainless steel and our tracking hardware is powder-coated aluminum.
We like to say "we make people happy and then make enclosure solutions that they will brag about". If you receive your product and it's not right, we will fix it immediately. If you open the box and simply don't like what you see, we will refund your purchase (less shipping) and donate it to a worthy cause. No dollar is worth the price of honor. We are a small American family business and teaching our children that "work is good".
We believe we can produce a quality product that will make people happy and leave work each day knowing that we fulfilled that promise. Call us and you will hear unflinching passion. You'll want to join over 43,000 others that are now part of our family of satisfied clients.
