Thompson Construction is a Diamond Certified contractor with more than 40 years serving residential clients in Sonoma, Marin, and Lake Counties. Whether you’re bringing your own custom design to the table or are looking for guidance on your options, we can help you realize your vision of a beautiful and long-lasting pergola or awning for your home.
These structures may be freestanding or attached to the existing home and can be built over or installed with single- and multi-level decks to truly take advantage of your outdoor space. If you’re interested in building an awning, you can opt to attach it to the roofline of your home or raise it using a Sky Lift 一 a newer building option for awnings that are becoming increasingly popular because it provides more vertical space and can enhance the overall visual appearance of your home.
At Thompson Construction, we encourage you to choose the materials that suit your needs, aesthetic, and budget — and we are happy to make recommendations if you need an expert opinion. We often construct our pergolas and awnings using pressure-treated redwood or cedar; however, if you’re seeking a more economical option, Douglas fir can stand the test of time when a roof is affixed to protect it from the elements. You can also customize the look of your pergola or awning with your choice of stain or paint color, both of which further protect the wood from the elements.
Considering a roof for your project? Roofing can be added to any structure to offer additional shade, or you may leave the roof uncovered to enjoy the sunshine or provide a space to grow vining plants. We offer composition roofing 一 commonly known as standard shingle roofing 一 as well as corrugated, metal, and polycarbonate roofing materials. (Polycarbonate roofing, a popular choice, allows some filtered natural light to shine through while also offering UV protection.)
Interested in more personalizations or upgrades? Gutters can be added to the structure’s roof to direct rainwater runoff, and you can also enjoy popular creature comforts by opting for electric installation for lighting and fans.
