A new pergola is a great way to add shade and style to your backyard deck or patio. Pergolas can be constructed from pressure treated wood, cedar, composite, vinyl or even aluminum.
A new backyard pergola can be outfitted with an outdoor ceiling fan or even rope lighting. Some clients also add outdoor shades for more protection from the sun.
Because of the weight of a pergola, it must have a substantial base to sit on. Most pergolas cannot be constructed on an existing deck or patio without having concrete footing under the posts. If a pergola is to be constructed on a new deck, the frame must be engineered accordingly.
