Pergola. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 19:14:07 PM
Painting your Pergola: Anything that is exposed to the harsh elements of nature will eventually need protection. Painting is one of the best ways to provide this protection. It gives colour to the wood and also conceals some of the natural defects and characteristics that may stand out obscuring the real beauty of the wood. Paint is also beneficial because they prevent moisture damage and rust. Acrylic paints are the best choice for painting pergolas as they provide the best protection. The durability of pergola depends on the materials chosen for its construction. As the roofs are permanently exposed to the elements of nature, the paint chose may fade easily. Also, materials such as fabric may fray or fade and plastic or fibreglass roofs may get warped or change colour.
Metal Roof: The advantage of a metal roof is that it can be adjusted to the exact size and shape of the structure. A choice of metals such as copper, aluminium or tin also helps to make an easy decision. Metals not only easy to cut and shape, they also provide excellent protection from the weather conditions. However, they also have some disadvantages such as disallowing light to enter the area or enabling the temperature to get too hot inside the area.
Arbors and pergolas can be designed in many ways, depending on your preferences and needs of your garden or home. Suppose you want to cover the top of a large pergola, the best way is to grow wisteria or grape vines, since they have a tendency to grow horizontally and spread in large areas. Although, it is important to keep in mind that fruit vines may also attract bees and other insects. So, if you want to avoid pests you shouldn’t choose pergola deck design incorporating flowers of fruits.
