These Columbus, OH homeowners recently hired Archadeck of Columbus to install a pergola at their home. The homeowners could not decide upon one pergola design that would work for all their needs, therefore they decided upon two pergolas in order to achieve what they were looking for.

Pergolas, also know as arbors or trellises are limitless in their design. Materials such as traditional wood and cedar are options to consider when deciding upon your pergola. Treated wood moves by expanding and contracting, whereas cedar doesn’t move because of the oils within the wood itself. Cedar is more costly than treated wood, so this is a consideration you may want to think about.

The components of the pergola itself  come with choices as well.  Component options all depend upon the design and look you wish to achieve with your pergola. Usually rafters are set 16″ on center, and the lathing is 2×2 or 1×4 which are typically spaced 6″ apart. In order to accommodate or gain more shade, we may add in more components to bring in further sun protection, for example we can make rafters 12″ on center and the lathing 4″ on center. Archadeck of Columbus can construct your pergola to fit your individual needs.
