U.S. Patio Systems and Home Remodeling is an authorized dealer of TEMO pergolas serving the city of St. Paul, Minnesota. In fact, we are the only TEMO pergola dealer in the Twin Cities region. Our decision to install pergolas from TEMO was an easy one to make, as every TEMO pergola is a high-quality shade structure with an abundance of innovative features, including an electrostatic finish and snap-fit construction that eliminates having to use unsightly nails or screws. TEMO pergolas come in three designs:
- Attached – connects to the home on one side
- Freestanding – a welcome addition to a backyard sitting area
- Garden Arbor – perfect for garden entranceways
- Operable – features motorized extruded louvers that can open and close
Just what is a pergola, anyway? Pergolas are outdoor features that have been used for centuries to provide shade from the sun and, often, grip for climbing vines. The origin of the word “pergola” is the Latin word pergula, which translates approximately to “projecting eave.” Today, pergolas are also frequently referred to as arbors, gazebos, trellises, and lattice structures. Though it’s common to use treated lumber in building a pergola, we greatly prefer TEMO pergolas because they are made of heavy-duty extruded aluminum that doesn’t crack, warp, rot, or fall prey to termite infestation.
