Palm Beach is a mecca for luxury living. When your neighbors are stunning architectural gems like the Flagler Museum or The Breakers, it’s imperative to bring home styling to the next level. For homeowners overlooking the picturesque cobalt blue waters of Jupiter, Boynton Beach, and Delray Beach, maximizing sweeping coastal views is a major priority for outdoor designers.

For homeowners here in Palm Beach County, making the most of your outdoor living space is one way to ensure you will live your best Gold Coast life. No single addition to your home gets you closer to your best outdoor life like a modern patio cover. Here we offer a brief primer on what you should expect as you look to turn your yard, deck, or patio into the most luxurious outdoor living space imaginable with a new pergola.

1. Luxury Design to Match Your Neighborhood

When considering Palm Beach pergola ideas, remember that luxury at its core is what makes this area such a desirable destination for visitors and homeowners alike. To seamlessly accent the stunning local architecture, it’s important for a pergola to carry the same elevated design elements as the homes here, and the pergolas we design are definitely up to the task. With no visible assembly hardware, our pergolas create clean exterior lines that can accent any architectural style from Gilded Age mansions to minimalist modern looks of the sunny coast. With customized exterior coatings for the pergola structure, we can match any color including wood grain. To truly elevate a luxe pergola, we can integrate fully-autonomous controls with a built-in sensor array that automatically closes the louvered roof at the first sign of rain.

2. Be Prepared for South Florida’s Weather

The notoriously fickle weather here in South Florida can turn from a shimmering sunny day to torrential downpour in a matter of minutes. The pergolas we create with our manufacturing partner Azenco are purpose-built for the high winds and frequent rain we see here. Each pergola is crafted to meet our individual project specifications. Each pergola features Azenco’s unique gapless, dual-walled louvers, capable of blocking out the rain when closed, so you can enjoy your covered patio even when it is raining. Beyond the routine rain showers, pergolas in South Florida also need to be able to stand up to hurricane season. Each of our pergolas is engineered to be hurricane resistant, from high caliber site engineering to expert installation. For areas prone to excessive high winds, we can also incorporate an integrated wind sensor that automatically opens the louvered roof to prevent damage from dangerous updrafts.

3. Pergola Permit in Palm Beach

Erecting a pergola is considered a major home improvement project, and, as such, is subject to state, county, and municipal building codes. This complex maze of codes varies from community to community, so the applicable codes in Palm Beach may be different that those next door in Wellington. We are experts in helping clients navigate this complex regulatory environment from planning your pergola permit to building permits. Another element of the pergola approval process that many homeowners often forget is the covenants of a Homeowners Association (HOA). If you live in an HOA community, your local board might have restrictions on pergola color, materials, and allowable building locations on the property. When undertaking a pergola project in the Palm Beach area, make sure to choose a contractor that has the local expertise needed to make your project as seamless as possible.

4. Louvered Pergola Cost

One of the most-asked questions regarding pergola projects in the Palm Beach area is the cost of building a modern, aluminum, louvered pergola. The short answer is, it is hard to provide a range until our design team has a chance to explore your pergola needs. Each louvered pergola we design is totally custom to clients’ individual needs. As such, customer design choices tend to make pergola cost a bit fluid. Usually, the overall footprint of the pergola will account for about 80% of the total project cost. The remaining 20% varies greatly depending on the requested customizations, such as autonomous controls, custom color matching for louver exterior, or other integrated features like LED lighting, patio fans, infrared heaters, etc. The best way to learn more about the cost for the pergola project you envision is to contact our design team for an initial consultation.


A modern pergola is the ultimate in outdoor luxury living that will elevate your backyard, patio, or deck into a stylish Palm Beach relaxation destination. If you would like to explore adding a louver roof pergola to your home, contact our design team today.
