What is a pergola and why do I want one?

A pergola is an outdoor structure consisting of columns supporting a roofing grid of beams and rafters. This roofing grid can be left open or covered with a variety of materials, such as wood, fabric, or climbing plants, to create a shaded area. Pergolas are often used to define a specific area in an outdoor living space, such as a dining area, a seating nook, or a walkway.

Reasons to add a pergola to your outdoor living space:

  • Aesthetic appeal: Pergolas add architectural interest and beauty to your backyard, enhancing the overall look and feel of your outdoor area.
  • Shade: While pergolas do not provide complete protection from the sun like a solid roof, they do offer filtered shade, making your outdoor space more comfortable and usable during hot summer days.
  • Outdoor living space: A pergola can help define an outdoor living area, creating a comfortable and inviting space for dining, entertaining, or relaxing.
  • Versatility: Pergolas can be freestanding or attached to your home, and they come in various sizes and styles to suit your specific needs and preferences.
  • Natural element: When covered with climbing plants or vines, pergolas can add a natural, organic element to your outdoor space, providing a comfortable and visually appealing area to enjoy.
  • Increased home value: A well-designed and constructed pergola can increase the value of your home

What type of wood is recommended for pergolas?

Since pergolas are outdoor structures they require exterior timbers. For this we typically recommend using Baldcypress. This durable, rot-resistant wood is an excellent choice for outdoor structures that need to withstand the elements. Baldcypress is a beautiful, light-colored wood with a straight grain and a natural resistance to decay, making it a popular choice for pergolas, decks, and other exterior projects.
