A pergola is a practical and elegant structure that spans millennia. It knows many shapes and forms throughout the centuries and in modern day. With its slatted roof, it provides some shade without totally shutting out the sun. Should you want more shade or shelter, covers and climbing plants are both possible solutions. Where do you begin to build one? With our decades of experience in the Baltimore area, Freedom Fence & Deck can be your pergola builder in Catonsville, Maryland.

Designing Your Pergola
Freedom Fence & Deck offers different pergola materials, namely wood and vinyl. Wood pergolas are more rustic, warm, and natural-looking. With proper care, they can last for decades. Wood is an especially appropriate pergola material if you are building it on a wood fence or deck.
The same goes for vinyl (a.k.a. polyvinyl chloride or PVC), which, with its strong constitution, is able to withstand the elements and look practically new after decades have passed. Vinyl pergolas can also come in different colors, although white is the most common.
Pergolas primarily provide shade, and they can do so in the following forms:
- Outdoor living zone: Square, rectangular, or triangular roofs are popular for pergolas meant to establish an outdoor living zone, like a dining or sitting area, or poolside lounge.
- Walkway cover: A pergola can be a covering over a walkway, short or long. It can be attached to a house or garage or stand alone and meander over a walkway.
- Arch over a gate: A fence gate can become a lot more prominent when you install a pergola arch over it and add some charm.
- Arch over deck benches: If you have built-in benches along your deck’s perimeter, you can add some shade with a narrow pergola overhead.
Pergola Installation Costs
Pergolas cost between a couple thousand and as much as $10k. It depends on the material, the pergola size, and the difficulty of the installation work.
