Why build a pergola or deck?
The addition of Pergolas can change the way you enjoy your home. The simple element of bringing the outside in is one of the most popular home enhancements across Canberra and in fact Australia. They are a simple and elegant solution to maximising your outdoor space, and give you the chance to take a break without ever leaving your home. With a brand new pergola, you can embrace luxury at a minimal expense compared to other home improvement options.
What is the definition of a Pergola?
A pergola is usually described as an outdoor structure without a solid roof. They are often covered with vines or climbing roses, but may be covered with shade-cloth or other variety of building materials. Often verandas or patios are described as pergolas when they have polycarbonate roofing rather than a solid roof. Polycarb sheets have come a long way in recent years. It is now possible to use solar control sheets which allow plenty of light in, whilst allowing the space below to remain cool.
When planning your pergola, take into account the weight of the plants (when they are fully grown) which the pergola will have to support. Sometime in the future you may also wish to support a hammock or a swinging chair under the pergola, so ensure that your design will be able to incorporate such things.
What materials are used in pergolas and decks?
Quality Building Services use the best quality materials for Canberra conditions. Pergolas and Decks can be built with timber, steel or aluminium. Timber frames are the most popular. The timber frame also blends well with the garden and surrounding trees.
Aluminium framed pergolas are experiencing a dramatic increase in popularity. In the past an aluminium structure would have been an expensive option, but the price of aluminium has remained quite stable in recent years, making it an extremely attractive option. An aluminium framed pergola or carport looks very similar to a timber framed structure, except the beams are powder-coated for a very long life. There is no maintenance required for aluminium structures as they will not rust.
Steel offers similar advantages to aluminium and enables you to have long spans between posts. It can look great with a Colorbond® paint finish. When you choose Colorbond® steel you will have a choice of 20 designer colours for Roofing, Walling, Guttering, Downpipes and Fascia as part of the standard range. Colorbond® steel is not just powder coated steel, it is one of the most advanced steel products in the world, combining the outstanding anti corrosion performance of a Zincalume® steel base with a superior paint system.
Quality Building Services can advise on the right roofing to keep your pergola cooler in summer and warmer in winter, to ensure you get maximum light, beauty and use from your new living area.
