Types of pergolas for your Calgary yard:

There are several different types of pergolas, cedar being the most popular among Calgary consumers. Cedar is naturally insect resistant and looks beautiful in the end result. You can leave untreated or stain and seal to hold its natural state. Coming in a little more expensive then pressure treated wood it typically gets a longer life span.

Pressure treated wood is the least expensive option for your pergola. Using pressure treat gives you a reasonable life span and you have the option for staining or painting. More maintenance comes with the use of pressure treated wood as well as the lumber can warp or crack over time.

Choosing Vinyl can also be an option for your pergola. Priced higher than cedar or pressure treated wood, it comes with the benefit of virtually maintenance free and a good choice of color options.

How do Pergolas add value to your landscape?

As outdoor living is becoming more and more popular, adding a Pergola increases the enjoyment and comfort of your outdoor living space, whether it  is situated over your deck, patio or porch.

Pergolas, like other shade structures in your outdoor living space add value, both to the homeowner and to the overall value of your property. The key to maintaining that value is maintaining the overall condition of your pergola, which is closely tied to the material used to build the Pergola.

A pergola is the perfect way to add character to an exterior space while serving a functional purpose.

Common Mistakes

Though pergola’s add value, shade and a unique look only pergola’s can bring, they can also make your yard feel out of proportion. A pergola should always be constructed with an aesthetic appeal in mind. In smaller yards, it is important to scale the size of your pergola accordingly so it acts as an accent for the rest of your yard, not an oversized eye soar.

Larger pergola’s compliment features such as a deck, pool, water feature or large seating areas. Always remember, the size of your pergola should compliment your backyard, it should never act as a focal point in your yard. Keep these little tips in mind and your pergola will continue to act as an asset in your landscape.
