I'm currently in the process of exploring the possibility of adding external blinds to my existing structure, and I have a few questions. I'm hoping to receive expert advice on the following:
- Will installing blinds onto the current structure result in a significant additional load? I'm concerned because the pergola is connected to the house frame via metal L brackets, and I want to ensure that this won't compromise the integrity of my home's structure. It's important to note that I'm not looking to create an enclosure but rather to provide shade and protection from the sun and light rain.
- What would be the most cost-effective option for adding outdoor blinds, taking into consideration that the pergola structure may not be entirely sequre, and some minor adjustments in terms of height and other factors may be necessary?
I've included some pictures with this post to help with your considerations.
Thank you in advance, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you need any additional information.
