Where to install a bioclimatic pergola?

Are you looking to invest in a bioclimatic pergola and wondering where to install it? Don't know where the best spot is for your pergola? What configuration should you choose to make the most of your pergola and enhance your outside space? There are a number of possibilities. For example, you can install your pergola in your garden, against your house or on a roof terrace. Discover all our tips for finding the best place to install your bioclimatic pergola.
Installing your pergola against your house
A pergola that backs onto your house has two posts. Its upper section is fixed directly against the wall of your house. This type of installation is very aesthetic, with your pergola forming an extension of your house and adding character to it. You can move easily between inside and outside, without being exposed to the elements. Your pergola protects you from the rain and the sun. This type of structure protects you from the wind, rainwater and all the elements.

It provides shade not only on your terrace, but also in your home, which is a considerable asset. The motorised slats of your pergola let natural light into your home, but protect the room adjoining your structure from excessive heat. It's also a solution that prevents water from splashing on the windows... and means less time spent on cleaning. As you can see, the lean-to pergola has many advantages. You can also fit it with practical options, such as LED lighting or power sockets. Side awnings are also useful for protecting you from prying eyes and the sun. When they are lowered, your space is partitioned and your bioclimatic pergola almost forms a room in its own right.
Installing your pergola in your garden
You can reinvent your space and add character to your garden by installing your pergola in your garden. Freestanding models are installed in an island, completely separate from your house. Freestanding pergolas do not rest on a wall or facade: they have 4 legs, so you can install them wherever you like. So you can choose to create a dining or sitting area right in the middle of your garden. This solution is often chosen by pool or spa owners who want to create a cocooning area sheltered from the sun around their water feature. In all cases, the self-supporting pergola is the ideal solution.

How do you install an aluminium pergola on a roof terrace?

The best way to install an aluminium pergola on your roof terrace is to lean it against the wall of your home. Supported by a fixing beam, it is an extension of your living room or kitchen. Two posts aimed at the ground complete the aluminium structure of the pergola.
Biossun also has a solution for those who can't drill a hole in their roof. Attached to the posts of your pergola, we offer a fixed planter. Decorated with your most beautiful plants and weighted down with a mixture of sand and gravel, it stabilises your pergola.
Benefit from a full technical study of your future pergola. Our approved Biossun partners offer their expertise to help you realise your project. An experienced professional will come to your home to assess the technical constraints of your roof. He or she will then send you an estimate of the cost of the work. Take advantage of a top-of-the-range service to install a made-to-measure pergola on your roof terrace.

Which pergola model for a roof terrace?

Often sheltered from the wind, or even facing south, the terrace is thought of as a space in its own right where life is good. However, the sun and bad weather can limit the enjoyment of your terrace.

- The sliding glass panels, made from top-of-the-range glass, fit perfectly into the frame of the pergola. Totally transparent, they provide a 360° panoramic view of the outside.
- The rain sensor, like the anemometer, has an automatic activation system that closes the slats.
