Building a pergola is not difficult, but as with any home-improvement project, planning is essential. If you wish to construct a pergola but need some help coming up with pergola ideas there are places online that can help you. Usually the tools and skill required are no more than those needed for a weekend fence.
There are a number of things you have to consider prior to choosing your pergola design. For starters, what’s the maximum amount you can afford to invest? If you’re on a limited budget, you might be unable to afford to get it built for you, but have the carpenter expertise to construct it yourself? You also have to decide on a location. Your underground utility pipes and wires may make a difference concerning where you can place your construction, therefore take a look before you begin constructing in the wrong location. You must also verify with local building codes to make sure you’re in compliance.
But, don’t be mistaken. There is no need to cover ourselves completely. The key is in using slats or lattice for a roof that will diffuse the sun’s rays when they are at their peak. Two by two inch slats that are spaced a few inches apart are ideal for reducing the glare and the direct sunlight your patio will receive. The first essential before starting any pergola project is to carefully consider the location. You want to construct your structure in a way that takes into account the direction it is facing and how it will be affected by the daily sun and shade patterns of your yard.
Often pergolas are used as a shady retreat, especially for ’al fresco’ dining. Think about whether you would need sun or shade. It might be that you would use it to sit in the warm evening sunshine, or for sunbathing. The position of the sun would need to be considered carefully to make sure the pergola caught the sun at a good time of day, for you. If you would like the best of both worlds, there are pergola shades on the market that can shield you from the sun when needed.
