For over 45 years, W.A. Zimmer Company has been providing home improvement solutions to individuals and families in the area. When Owners Bill and Marcia Zimmer started the company in 1976, they knew they wanted to do things a little differently. Their vision was to provide maintenance-free products to their clients with quality craftsmanship and customer service at the core.W.A. Zimmer Company

W.A. Zimmer is dedicated to helping their customers find a way to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Some of their most popular products include pergolas, retractable awnings, patio covers, sunrooms, retractable shade screens, and rattan sunroom furniture.

The pergolas from W.A. Zimmer not only provide a beautiful outdoor space to your home, but also style and shade. You can choose either a free-standing aluminum pergola or an attached pergola. By adding seating, or perhaps some flowers to enhance the look of your pergola, you will have a magnificent outdoor space. Whether you are reading a book by yourself or entertaining friends and family, you will have a calm space to enjoy.

For those who do not know much about pergolas, they can be described as an outdoor structure with columns that support an open roof of beams and rafters. Most people may think of pergolas as vinyl or wooden. W.A. Zimmer sets the bar higher by offering extruded aluminum pergolas. These are a great option if you are not looking to maintain other types of materials. Besides the convenience of not having to keep up with other pergola materials, the aluminum option is pleasant to the eye.

Pergolas serve many purposes. One of the main reasons individuals choose to install a pergola is to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about harmful ultraviolet rays. In addition, pergolas are extremely versatile. You can choose to have a pergola in your backyard, on a patio or near your pool. No matter the choice you make, you and your guests will be able to enjoy the warm weather while not having to worry about overheating in the sun. Pergolas are also a great investment for your home. Of course, you will want to enjoy your new pergola with your family, but if you ever decide to move, a pergola will add a great deal of value to your home.

W.A. Zimmer offers patio covers, which are different than pergolas. They can be described as a patio roof, with carport and solid-roof options. The solid roof provides protection from rain, snow, ultraviolet rays and other outdoor elements. They can be used for areas like your pool, deck, barbecue area or virtually any other outdoor space. The carport style is great to keep your vehicle protected and out of the elements. Instead of installing a brand-new garage, W.A. Zimmer can provide you a less expensive option while still providing you with the same benefits.

W.A. Zimmer CompanyPatio covers come in various sizes and styles. W.A. Zimmer offers Florentine, Venetian and Roma, which you can view and learn more about on their website. They also offer a Santa Fe style, which has a solid-panel thermal roof and also has the attractive look of a pergola. If you’re interested in a patio cover but do not know where to start, no problem. The team at W.A. Zimmer has a dedicated group of knowledgeable individuals who can take a look at your space and help you design the perfect outdoor patio cover.

If you live in Indiana, you already know how the weather can change from day to day, and season to season. For this reason, many people choose to go with a sunroom. This allows you to enjoy the sights of nature at every time of the year without having to compensate for not being able to spend time outdoors. For example, you can view the beauty of flowers blooming in the spring, the greenery and sunshine of summer, the leaves falling in autumn and the snowflakes in winter. Whether you are sipping a cup of sweet tea or drinking your morning coffee, a sunroom is sure to enhance your appreciation for nature.

W.A. Zimmer offers three different types of sunrooms including the Zimmer Room Plus, the Extended Season Sunroom and the Three Season Sunroom. No matter the style you are looking for, their team will be able to assess your living space and recommend the best option.

Perhaps you are looking to add additional shade to your pergola, garage door or outdoor patio cover. The team at W.A. Zimmer has you covered, quite literally. Their outdoor shades are a great option if you are looking to have more privacy, control room brightness, keep insects away and stay safe from harmful ultraviolet rays. When you invest in an outdoor shade, you are making a solid investment into your home. They install only the highest-quality shades from brands like Sunesta, which is a solar screen. You can have peace of mind without giving up a sophisticated look to your home.

Of course, there are always other businesses to choose from. What sets W.A. Zimmer apart is their highly dedicated team of craftsman, and customer service department. They are well-known in the area and have a high reputation for quality and care. They have built strong relationships with suppliers for over 45 years and are able to provide you with the best pricing. With supply issues being a problem lately, W.A. Zimmer is proud to keep most materials in stock, which results in getting the job done faster than competitors.W.A. Zimmer Company
