Pergolas for Fences, Decks, & More
Pergolas have many home exterior applications.
- Fences: A narrow pergola can arch over a fence gate to give visual interest, make it abundantly clear where the entrance is, and to provide a little shade upon entry.
- Decks: Pergolas can take many forms on backyard decks. They can create an outdoor living zone or simply add visual interest. An outdoor living space using a pergola could either be on one side, corner, or section of the deck.
- Pool decks and patios: Pergolas can also be perfect covers for poolside retreats. You might want to sunbathe, but you also might want to relax without getting burned! The pergola is a classic poolside shelter.
- Standalone outdoor living spaces: Floating decks and patios can also benefit from pergolas. Your standalone outdoor living space will not be merely a platform on the lawn anymore, and you’ll have some shade and sun throughout the day.
- Walkways: Some pergolas cover walkways in a backyard or along the side of a house. They shelter people in high-traffic passageways.
Pergola Materials: Wood and Vinyl
Classic pergolas are made of wood or vinyl. Wood pergolas have a warm and natural look to them and can take on intricate designs. They do not require much maintenance and may be cheaper than vinyl pergolas. Plus, if you are building one on a wood deck or fence, the materials will match.
Vinyl pergolas are famous for their minimal maintenance needs and white, bright color. They will last a long time and can also take on custom designs. If you aren’t sure which material to use, Freedom Fence & Deck can give you advice.
