About Austin Pergola Company

There’s a reason that the Austin Chronicle added our company to their “Best of Austin – Critic’s Pick” list, describing us as “patient, punctual, efficient, meticulous” and labeling us “The best way to transform your backyard!” We’re proud to have earned the title of #1 rated pergola company in Texas, by making sure every single customer gets the best product available, and an awesome experience working with us.

Back in 2014, The founders of Austin Pergola Company wanted to start a construction business that operated differently from the typical contractor. Most potential customers don’t know this, but in Texas ‘contractors’ are not required to have a general contracting license, which means that anyone with a truck, a toolbox, and a website can start a construction company. And even if you find a contractor that knows a trade, it’s still likely that they do not know how to run a business. Many well-meaning and talented carpenters end up in financial trouble because they don’t know how to manage their customers and their business, and unfortunately when this happens it’s the customer who loses.

The founders of Austin Pergola Company are customer service experts first, and construction experts second. That means you will be treated with professionalism from the first conversation all the way through the completion of the project and beyond. At Austin Pergola Company we use the latest high-tech scheduling and project management software to make sure that your project starts on time and is completed without delays. We have 100% 5 star reviews on Yelp, Google, and Facebook. We only have happy customers! And we intend to keep it that way.
