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.
