Avoid Sizing Errors: Since most Pergola buyers are one time buyers. many sizing errors are common. For example. a common mistake is to assume the positioning of the 4 corner posts is the size of the pergola being offered. For instance. if the four corner posts of a pergola are expected to sit on the corner of your brand new concrete pad that is 10` x 12`. and purchase a 10` x 12` pergola. you will discover on receiving your pergola kit that the posts are set at 8` x 10` to the outside corners. The reason is pergolas are always sized based on their roof size. And. in most cases. pergolas are recessed back from the roof edge anywhere from 8 inches to a couple of feet depending on the design (commonly 12"). Custom design or sizing can be a good idea to get a suitable pergola for your place. Look for manufacturers that insist on shop drawings prior to building and take the time to check everything repeatedly and make sure that all measurement and details are agreed to in writing ahead of delivery time.
While searching for the right piece for your backyard. you will come across varied pergola types. Some are more popular than the others. At times. people look for pergolas that will simply act as a beautiful destination in their yard. A standalone garden pergola can help you in creating a patio like region in the yard. It can also act as a partition between the patio and the remaining part of the yard. If you want. you can also improvise its appearance by furnishing it.
