Create some visual interest in your backyard with a pergola. It’s an open airy structure that provides partial shade to your outdoor space. At Sunscape Outdoor Living we build attached or detached pergolas with or without hardscape flooring. They are the perfect structure for a well landscaped area where you can go to relax and grill or enjoy a day poolside to catch some sun rays and dry off without direct sunlight.
WHAT TYPE OF MATERIALS ARE USED TO BUILD A PERGOLA?
We build pergolas out of treated wood, cedar or aluminium.
CAN WE ADD FINISHES TO A PERGOLA?
Wood and cedar pergolas can be painted or stained and covered with a treated clear coat. Posts can be wrapped with a stone or brick of your choice.
WHAT SIZE BEAMS AND POSTS ARE USED?
Our standard pergolas are hardy and built with 2'x12" beams, 6"x6" posts, 2'x6" footings, 2'x2' slates. The ends of the beams and slates are scalloped giving our pergolas a classic Mediterranean look.
WHAT IS THE BEST LOCATION IN MY BACKYARD FOR A PERGOLA?
Pergolas can be constructed anywhere but we generally build them along the sides pools, over Jacuzzi, near fire places or over a dining area both attached and detached from the house.
DO PERGOLAS PROVIDE SHADE?
The rooftop of a pergola is an open-lattice made of scallop ended beams and slates. Partial shade will come thru the rooftop but there is certainly some shade, yes!
WILL MY PATIO BE PROTECTED BY THE RAIN WITH A PERGOLA?
Unfortunately, not very well with the open-lattice rooftop. However, we can add a polycarbonated cover. Problem solved! Ask your Project Designer for details.
