Pergola / August 26, 2018 / JulietteHughes
Anyone who experiments with woodworking projects knows how difficult and time consuming DIY projects can be without good blueprints or plans to follow. This is why I highly suggest taking the time to do some research and obtain a good set of plans for your project. Plans with clear step by step instructions accompanied by photos will make a do it yourself pergola project much easier in the long run. Pergolas create that outdoor living area youve always wanted without spending a fortune. They provide a great spot to entertain or just relax in the sun with a book.
Choose the right material ii) Go for thicker structures iii) Notching and Hardware iv) Do not ignore your local weather v) Get details of manufacturers warranty vi) Reduce sizing errors to zero vii) Amount of Assembly Required Right Material: Ensure that you have chosen a pergola that will continue to look beautiful for ten years or more. The right choice of material is a key point. Most arched pergolas are built from Wood Steel/Aluminum Concrete or PVC/Vinyl. Among them wood is the most reliable and popular material. However given a vast array of wood types which include California Redwood Teak Cedar and Imported Hardwoods among others buyers easily can get confused as to which of them would be best for their situation.
Before commencing on the project finalize first where you would like your pergola to be placed and what kind of design and style you would like it to be. Assess the prospective locations for your pergola and determine which is best by considering the piping system of your home or garden; you must avoid putting up your pergola in places where it could possibly do damage to the pipes underneath the ground. Another very important thing to consider is the purpose for your pergola. Do you want it to be an extension of your home? Do you want it to be a place for welcoming guests? Or do you want it to be your little shady haven in the middle of your garden? This should help you determine your location. Decide also on the kind of design and style of your pergola.
