If you are wanting a Pergola to be right out your back door to cover your patio, then having a skylift Pergola might be the best option for you. The skylift system is a patented product that will allow Modern Woodscapes to attach a Pergola to the roof of your house. How this works is that we will cut a small hole in the roof of your house, this will allow us access to place the system. The skylift product rest directly on the exterior stud wall of your house, so when the weights of the Pergola is placed on the skylift bracket been that weight will be directly transferred to the strongest part of your home, the exterior stud wall.

This will allow Modern Woodscapes to build you a Oklahoma pergolas directly up against your house without having to add an additional post to support the weight of the Pergola. This will illuminate a post being in a walkway or if you don’t like it for aesthetic reasons then having a skylift is a great option for you. There are many home layout designs where the back patio is in a you or L-shaped right up against the house, so the sky lift would make the most sense for you. That way you don’t have to have a pole installed directly up against your home.

Once the skylift system is installed we use flashing to prevent any water from getting down inside your roof. It is just like any other plumbing pipe that sticks out of your roof, it will be sealed and water won’t be getting down into your roof. So you don’t have to worry about any future water damage with the skylift system

Also when Modern Woodscapes is building your Oklahoma pergolas, if you are wanting the pergola up against your home and you have a large eve that sticks out past the exterior wall of your home, then traditionally the posts would be several feet from the wall of your house. This would place it directly in the way of walking in would just be a nuisance to have to walk around. So the skylift system would be perfect for the situation as well.

Freestanding pergolas are what you would generally think of when you think of a traditional Pergola. They typically have four posts in the corners of the Pergola, to support the structure. We can build pergolas in all shapes and sizes and can even make them curved if that’s what you are wanting. Most of the time a customer will want this if there concrete patio is also curved, or if they want to match the shape of a feature on their patio. Both freestanding and skylift pergolas offer the same amount of shade and protection from the elements. Both will come with a polycarbonate roof to block out the rain and add extra shade from the sun. This is a feature that we highly recommend that you add on to your Pergola, whether it is a traditional or sky lift Pergola, you will definitely be happy that you added a polycarbonate roof.

Some customers might be worried or concerned that we have to make a small hole in your roof, but rest assured we will take great care to seal off your roof from any water damage. But the benefit of adding a sky lift Pergola as opposed to directly attaching the Pergola beam to your roof, far outweighs the risk of this small amount of water damage. If one of those nasty Oklahoman thunderstorms rolled through and dumps a lot of large hail on your roof and you have to get it replaced, then having a sky lift Pergola makes the job of replacing your roof super easy. There is no need to tear down the Pergola just to replace the roof. But some companies place the pergola directly on the roof of your home, and if you have to replace your homes roof for some reason then the pergola will have to be torn down in order to replace the roof. That is such a hassle and will cost you so much more money in the long run. We highly recommend that you do not go with companies that suggest putting a wooden structure directly onto your homes roof.
