The pergola is an architectural structure which is designed to produce visual interest, especially when you have flowers and vines growing along the rafters or vertically down the posts. Pergolas are suitable to a variety of different designs, which means that you can design something that is completely unique. All weather fabrics can be draped between the vertical posts to produce a romantic effect while simultaneously protecting the pergola from harsh weather conditions.
What is a Pergola Design/Installation?
The pergola is a room outside which uses cross rafters and has no walls, so that the interior space has lots of light and air and is ideal for dining or relaxation. They are bigger than arbors and are free standing structures, but in some instances may be physical attached to another building. Many property owners will install a lattice on them to provide additional shade as well as to showcase vines. Pergolas are free of the complex connections which are needed for other construction projects, which make them affordable to install.
Why Should You Get Pergolas Design/Installation?
Installing a pergola will maximize the space which is available to you outdoors. It does this through providing an area where exterior furniture can be used, which will have some protection from weather, especially if one of its walls is physically attached to the house. Pergolas can also be manufactured or pre-made, which means that they are relatively straightforward to install when the proper tools and materials are used. A good contractor will sit down with you and come up with a design that is appealing before the actual work begins.
While pergolas are sometimes compared to patios, they have a key advantage over them, which is that with a pergola you can figure out the amount of shade and sunlight that it will provide. You do this by evaluating the area where you intend to install it, and then factoring in the time, angle and season when the sun shines. From this knowledge you will know how the rafters should be positioned. Pergolas can also increase the market value of your property when done correctly. Renovation experts have stated that a properly installed pergola can boost the appraised value of your property by at least 20 percent, which is considerable. A lot of homes don’t have them, so those that do tend to stand out.
