Pergola / August 26, 2018 / JulietteHughes
This type of wood is easy to use easy to maintain looks beautiful is extremely durable and even gives off a pleasant aroma. Youll find that todays most top rated pergola kits will feature western red cedar. My personal preference is to build a cedar pergola but you may choose to construct an aluminum pergola vinyl pergola or an iron or metal pergola. Again this will be determined by how you want to incorporate the structure into your own garden focusing on each particular garden and pergola style. The Importance of High Quality Pergola Plans The last thing I would like to focus on is the importance of following high quality and detailed pergola plans.
Furthermore wood is the most organic material that you will find for building pergolas. Other materials that people have been known to use include vinyl and aluminum. 4. Have the pergola plans been made to scale? Depending upon your garden the size of the pergola would also vary. It would be entirely pointless if you end up with a pergola too big or too small because it would fail to serve its primary purpose. Hence make sure that the size of the pergola corresponds to the size of your garden before giving the go ahead for its construction. 5. Which shape do the pergola plans give your pergola? Finally you will also have to make a choice between different shapes of the pergola.
The reason is pergolas are always sized based on their roof size. And in most cases pergolas are recessed back from the roof edge anywhere from 8 inches to a couple of feet depending on the design (commonly 12"). Custom design or sizing can be a good idea to get a suitable pergola for your place. Look for manufacturers that insist on shop drawings prior to building and take the time to check everything repeatedly and make sure that all measurement and details are agreed to in writing ahead of delivery time. Assembly required/Assembly Instructions: Make sure you have collected assembly instructions from the manufacturers.
