Pergola. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 19:13:55 PM
You can either buy your pergola pre-made; have one custom made or purchase a kit and make it yourself. This is where the budget factor may influence your choice. While they are simple, a good craftsman takes pride in his work and you may find that a well-made custom pergola can be pricier than anticipated. But, you should also keep in mind that a custom made unit will almost always be made with quality and from wood that will stand the test of time, giving you lasting beauty for countless seasons of enjoyment.
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.
Shop Around: When you are ready to make your purchase, be sure to identify whether or not the style you are interested in is specific to a single company, or if it a universal style that is made by many different manufacturers. If the style of pergola you are most interested in is common, you may be able to get a better deal by shopping around and comparing prices. Be sure you double check the specification though to confirm they are identical products. Shopping around could save you a substantial amount, and allow you to purchase your kit for much less.
