Driffield Conservatory

When Charlie visited an elderly couple in Driffield who’d seen one of our stunning Vista pergolas that Yorkshire Pergolas had installed for a neighbour of theirs he couldn’t have guessed that this would be one of Yorkshire Pergolas most challenging but also one of their most heart warming projects to date.

They already had an existing lean-to canopy that had seen better days and they didn’t want to start from scratch but wanted to know if glass panels could be fitted to make it more like the Vista their neighbour had.

As the work was quite substantial and the structure not really suitable or indeed stable enough for glass panels Charlie wasn’t sure if the project was one he wanted to take on even if it could be done.

But one look at the disappointment on their faces was enough to convince Charlie that the challenge would be worth taking on – and Yorkshire Pergolas are never ones to turn down a challenge! They were such lovely people and all they wanted was somewhere to relax and watch the birds in comfort. So, Charlie got his thinking cap on and started figuring out a way it could be done.

The existing structure needed strengthening and neatening to make sure it would take the weight of the glass panels, then tracks for the glass were laid so the sliding glass panels could be fitted. The result is a lovely sunroom where they can watch the birds with a cup of tea and entertain visitors – their granddaughter has already claimed it as her Wendy house!

So, now they have their own special place and they are the happiest customers Yorkshire Pergolas could have! Charlie says “It’s not just about doing what’s easiest but about doing what your heart tells you is right”. The satisfaction of doing an amazing job with the challenges presented is one of the best feelings about the Pergolas business.

Christmas Pergola

Case Study: Christmas Pergola

The Project:

A recommendation from a previous customer who had bought one of our pergolas and liked it so much he recommended David and Sharon to Yorkshire Pergolas.

With the installation date in the days leading up to Christmas and the weather in Staffordshire being somewhat ‘arctic’ it was a challenge but Yorkshire Pergolas think nothing of going the extra mile when getting things right for a customer.

And David and Sharon were fantastic customers and really looked after us whilst we installed their 7 metre by 3.5 metre free standing Vista Pergola with sliding glass doors and some infrared heaters to keep it nice and snug on those cold days.

So, we worked right up to Christmas Eve to install this beautiful Pergola in Anthracite Grey with stunning Cream roof louvres with the end result being one of our most impressive installations to date.

And our motto at Yorkshire Pergolas is now – You can’t do enough for a good customer!

Client Testimonial: Yorkshire Pergolas Exceed Expectations

“Aluminium Construction in Anthracite with cream adjustable roof and fully glazed with sliding doors. If you are considering a Pergola we fully recommend Yorkshire Pergolas who have been fantastic to deal with since day one. His team of people worked in some dreadful weather and have given us an end product that has exceeded our expectations. It’s not just what they did which has impressed but the manner in which they did it. Professional and courteous at all times we felt they went above and beyond and fully recommend the company. Product appears to be excellent and fitted with attention to detail.
Well done everyone and Thank you!!”

Haxby ~ North Yorkshire

Case Study: Haxby ~ North Yorkshire

The Project:

A welcome change and a job right on our doorstep in Haxby, North Yorkshire. The Jaggers had a contemporary bungalow with a clean modern look and wanted to make the most of their outdoor space to relax in.

Their terrace was the perfect outdoor space but a pergola would add the ability to enjoy it during different weather conditions and times of year. Their main concern was that any pergola would be in keeping with the overall architecture of their property. I proposed a solution of a wall mounted Vista pergola with an Anthracite frame to match the window and door surrounds of the bungalow and a lovely cream for the roof louvres to match the colour of the bungalow walls.

The end result was a pergola that blended perfectly with the existing architecture and provided a stunning area to relax this summer. Result – a customer blown away by just how much a pergola can transform outdoor spaces!

Client Testimonial: A Stunning Outdoor Extension to our Home

“What a stunning out door extension to our contemporary bungalow. It sits perfectly attached and gives us an extra room providing shade from the sun and shelter from the rain. Our outdoor dining room is perfect, and now we have a fabulous pergola! Charlie and his team have created a beautiful space for us and we love it! Best wishes for the year ahead.”

Exeter ~ Devon

Case Study: Exeter ~ Devon

The Project:

Being down in Exeter, Devon is not usually an area that Yorkshire Pergolas cover but Tim and Caroline really loved what we do and when they compared other suppliers closer to them they didn’t feel they offered the service and choice we did.

They decided on one of our amazing Vista pergolas with an automated aluminium louvred roof for the ultimate amount of shade control. I suggested mixing an anthracite frame with light grey louvres for a simple yet modern look that went perfectly with the architecture of their home.

The result is a private retreat which turns a terrace into a place that can be enjoyed whatever the weather and a spectacular addition to their home. LED lighting added the option of enjoying the pergola once darkness falls and an electric zip blind on one side means they can enjoy privacy and shade at the touch of a button too.

With Tim and Caroline on hand with a lunch of pizza and tea, coffee and biscuits the job was a real pleasure! They were amazing people to work for!

Client Testimonial: Delighted with our New Pergola

“Charlie was helpful and easy to deal with and gave good advice on pre-order inspection of the site. The team who came from Yorkshire to us in Devon were friendly, efficient and work hard. We are delighted with the result and the pergola will be a great addition to our home. Thank you Charlie and team”.

David Darby

Case Study: David Darby

The Project:

By far one of our most ambitious and demanding projects yet.

The customer was a successful property developer and builder of high quality properties. There were challenges due to the mix of materials used in this high-end property which meant extra care was needed but David was able to lend a hand with his outstanding knowledge and technical expertise.

He chose one of our Vista aluminium louvred pergolas with the frame in anthracite and the louvres in cream for his property. With the addition of all the extras he added such as fully automated zip blinds, LED remote controlled spotlights and infrared heaters along with a top of the line BOSE surround sound system David and his family will be truly set to make the most of the coming spring and summer.

Although challenging to fit this project was one of our most impressive yet to see once built and one I’m truly proud of!

Cuckoo Bar ~ Manchester

Case Study: Cuckoo Bar ~ Manchester

The Project:

When Mike the owner of the Cuckoo Bar in Manchester was affected by the government measures regarding social distancing in the last half of 2020 he decided to look for a solution to use the outside space he had to expand the space he could use to serve customers safely.

He chose Yorkshire Pergolas primarily because our products can be fitted in restricted spaces which was the case with the outside space he had. After a consultation with Charlie he settled on our ‘Flat’ pergola model which boasts a sturdy aluminium frame and a water-resistant fabric roof which can be adjusted to suit the weather conditions – perfect for an outside bar!

The job itself presented a number of challenges as it was a small space to fit a pergola and had a number of fixed obstacles to work around meaning some adjustments needed to be made to fit the pergola perfectly.

Our unique surveying service found creative solutions and after some very long days installing the pergola the result was a beautiful and elegant 8.5m by 4m pergola that will give  a delighted Mike more space to serve his customers in style this spring and summer – roll on those long summer nights!

Client Testimonial: Great Communication and Friendly Service

“Charlie and his team are the best. Super professional, hard working and reliable. The whole process from start to finish was supported with great communication and a friendly service. The product is first class, with over and above service, plus solutions. We can’t recommend highly enough'”
