Pergola. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 19:15:08 PM
Growing vines adds additional shade because they cover the top of the structure; this makes your pergola more useful and comfortable to sit under. If you will be growing vines, it is important for you to make sure that your pergola is sturdy enough to hold the additional weight and stress of the vines. Vines, especially wisteria, are strong and can damage the structures that are not constructed properly.
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.
Smaller pergolas and arbors are commonly used for making an entry or exit from one place to another and they also add to the beauty of a home. Suppose you want to mark the entry into a backyard or side yard, the best way is to use an arbor with a gate along the fence. Such structures are usually designed with latticed sides that make it easy for climbing vines and other plants to grow up the structure.
