How to Build Your Own Pergola

If you are looking to update the aesthetic appeal of your home by providing shaded seating areas outdoors, building a pergola is the perfect fit for you.

Design Yours

Building Your Own Pergola

A pergola is a popular design from the Italian Renaissance. Originally designed for shade from midday sunshine, pergolas currently have a variety of uses as well as appeal. Today, pergolas are perfect for covering walkways, outdoor kitchens, gardens, and more. If you are looking to build a quick and also easy structure that adds outdoor appeal to your home and its visitors, a pergola is a feature you need.

Things you Should Know About Pergolas

Pergolas are a rectangular shape that has several boards to create rafters securing on top of a four-legged base. The rafter roof design only provides mild shade from the sun, so installing a canopy system to your pergola is recommended for full coverage on hot sunny days. You can build pergolas in a variety of sizes that are 8+ feet tall and wide. The simplistic design, installation, as well as variety of uses make pergolas a great structure when it comes to landscaping your property.
