What is a Pergola?
A pergola is a structure with a roof supported by columns. The roof is typically a lattice roof that allows indirect sunlight to pass through.
Pergola vs Pavilion
Pergolas are different than pavilions because the roof is often open and allows indirect sunlight to pass through whereas a pavilion will have a more traditional style roof that blocks all sunlight.
What is a Pergola Used For?
A pergola is used for a variety of reasons. They can extend your home, creating a beautiful outdoor space for lounging or dining. They can be used in your garden and look beautiful with vines wrapped around them. They can be used in the back yard or even the front yard. If you have some space that you want to spruce up, consider a pergola. For more reasons on why to choose a pergola, check out our blog on 5 Reasons to Pick a Pergola.

Vinyl vs Wood Pergolas
Perhaps you are wondering whether to go with a vinyl pergola or a wood pergola. Which is better? We often recommend vinyl pergolas as they require less maintenance and will last longer. Our vinyl pergolas are also made from recycled plastic so they are ecofriendly! A wooden pergola is also a good choice. They provide a traditional feel along with that real wood look. They are typically made from pressure treated yellow pine or cedar wood. They are rot resistant but do require annual refinishing to keep them fresh and last longer. Overall, whichever style you like better is going to be your best option.

Is it Difficult to Build a Pergola?
It's not overly difficult to build a pergola if you are handy with tools and like to build things. Keep in mind, they may take several hours to build. We do however highly recommend you hire a contractor to help build your pergola if you are not interested in spending a few hours trying to build it.
