Other than deciding on the pergola type. you must consider a few other factors while drafting pergola plans. Read through the pointers below to know about those factors, Size: You will first need to find out how much area of the yard you can dedicate to a pergola. The price of a pergola is directly proportional to its size. This means. your budget is one of the primary factors to consider while deciding on the size of the pergola.
Assembly required/Assembly Instructions: Make sure you have collected assembly instructions from the manufacturers. Usually you can ask for and receive them via email prior to purchasing to see how much work you are in for. Most pergola kits are single day installs. If they are fully erected in the shop prior to shipping out. you should be confident to install them properly. Insist on assembly instructions prior to buying and ask if there is any carpentry work you must do on your end or not. The best kits are just like giant Lego sets that you just have to re-erect: no sanding. sealing. cutting. or drilling needed.
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.
Moisture Issue: Less expensive materials often last longer in dry climates. while they may weaken gradually in the moist and harsh climates. Consider the amount of moisture in your local weather and long-term decay issue. Drier gentle climate areas are easy on pergolas. but the quality of wood becomes an issue whenever there is significant moisture or weather extremes.
