Pergolas add beauty to your home and surrounding property. These structures consist of set columns and an open, lattice-style roof. This allows for good air circulation while at the same time providing sufficient shade. Lattice roofs also allow for grapevines, vegetation, or rattan, making the structure look quite natural.
Patio pergolas are becoming more and more popular among homeowners. A patio pergola can be thought of as an extension of the house itself. Many homeowners prefer to build a pergola as a free-standing structure near a swimming pool or outdoor barbecue pit.
Pergolas are lightweight, which means they do not require the pouring of a full foundation. If the structure is going to be built around an existing patio, small foundation footings can be poured to support the columns.
The most commonly used materials in pergola construction are wood and vinyl. Wood pergolas are naturally beautiful, and vinyl pergolas are minimal maintenance and offer a variety of colors to choose from. Whichever material you choose, you can rest assured that patio pergolas from Amish Country Gazebos are strong and will last for a lifetime.
