Pergolas & Pavilions

Our custom Pergolas and Pavilions are built from solid oak, making for a beautiful finish. Our attention to detail goes even further with the use of solid wooden pegs to connect the braces. Pricing for these units vary. Customers can choose a simple kit package to install themselves. They may also upgrade to a comprehensive on-site installation by our skilled team.

Roof Styles
Our Pergolas come in two different beam styles. Customers may choose a "Traditional Beam" or a "Heavy Beam". While our pergolas have an open concept, the pavilions feature a solid roof, complete with Architectural Shingles.

Our gazebos offer you and your family a perfect place to entertain and unwind, while ensuring stability and quality. Our gazebos bring beauty to your backyard and are the perfect complement to any outdoor space. Just imagine yourself relaxing in your wonderful gazebo through the heat of the summer, with a cool lemonade in your hand. A gazebo may be just what your yard is missing. Our gazebos are built with two different products – poly-vinyl over wood and pressure-treated wood. You can screen in your gazebo, and even add electricity for a fan and lights. Our wooden gazebos can also be stained for an added element of style.

Helmuth Builders Greenhouses are one of a kind. We use a polycarbonate material that lets in 80% of the light that hits it. It has a 1.65 r value. The polycarbonate is an excellent insulator. As long as the sun is hitting the bare polycarbonate the inside should be warm enough to avoid any other heat source. However, you may need a small heater for those cold winter nights. To ensure strength we use metal T braces that run diagonal across the studs and trusses. We use washer head screws on the polycarbonate to avoid any leaks. In addition, the entire interior of the greenhouse will be covered with Haley paint. We know that you will be happy with a Helmuth Builders Greenhouse.
