As a permanent architectural piece to a garden. pergola designs have evolved throughout the centuries making it more appropriate for gardens and environmental designs. During medieval and renaissance period. pergola designs were used by people making curve segments incorporated with green vines. It was usually seen in gardens of Lords living in fortresses. The pergola has evolved from its famous brick and stone posts of 19th and 20th century to modern wood designs of the 21st century. The idea of modern wood design of pergolas is its affordability. and increasing popularity in modern garden designs. But because brick and stone are weather resistant. hardwoods such as Western Redcedar and Coast Redwood are used instead to match with the pergolas made of brick and stone.
The roof design on a pergola depends on the availability of direct sunlight as well as the geography and natural features of the region. Although. in earlier times. pergolas were constructed using brick and stone pillars. modern designs employ weather resistant woods such as western red cedar or coast redwood. Pergola roofs may range from simple. flat. traditional roof. elaborately curved roof. pitched roof. gabled roof or a gazebo style roof.
Manufacturer`s Warranty: Before buying an arched pergola. make sure that you can get replacement parts in future years even though your pergola is custom-designed. Look for pergola manufacturers that have been in the business for at least five years. The advantage of choosing such a manufacturer is that they can be more reliable in terms of fulfilling their product warranty or helping you with replacement parts at any time.
Complete-transparent covers are used if you want to keep the traditional style of your pergola but still provide the protection you need from rain. On the other hand. the glass panels can be used if your pergola is located in an open area without worrying about falling tree branches or fruits. Glass panels. although strong enough to serve as pergola covering. don`t work for all kinds of environments. making them vulnerable to hailstorms. So. it is always advisable to check your location before transforming your pergola with transparent insulations.
