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 option for you.

Design Yours

Building Your Own Pergola

Pergolas are popular structures dating back 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 popularly used to cover walkways, outdoor kitchens, gardens, and more. If you are looking to build a beautiful structure that adds outdoor appeal to your home and landscaping, a pergola is a perfect structure to choose.

What You Should Know About a Pergola

Pergolas are a rectangular shape that has several boards to create rafters on top of a four-legged base. Pergola roofs can be left open with a lattice roof or covered to create protection from weather elements. Roof rafters provide only mild shade from the sun, so installing a canopy system to a pergola is recommended for full coverage on hot sunny days.
