Wood Pergola and Deck by Archadeck

The images of relaxing at home, on your deck, inside a screened porch or gazebo or under a pergola is… well, relaxing and peaceful.

Outdoor living spaces are often the best escapes for reading, napping, dining, or congregating with family and friends.  And pergolas, in particular, are an excellent way to economically turn an outdoor area into an outdoor room.

In St. Louis, pergolas have gained popularity for backyard building by adding shade, charm, design definition, and dollar value to your property.  New generation, low maintenance building products and design creativity have also added to the appeal of a pergola.

Considerations for designing a pergola:

  • Determine the purpose of the pergola… as a shade structure for a pool, hot tub, spa, or swing; as a shade structure for a garden area; or as an addition to a deck or patio, creating an outdoor room and the ‘covered porch effect’.
  • Determine the size of a pergola in order to accommodate your home and landscaping, people and furniture.
  • Choose building materials and colors to complement and blend with other outdoor structures and your home’s architecture.  Pergolas can be designed and built with wood, vinyls, synthetics or a combination of materials.
  • And finally, choose accessories for your pergola such as lighting, electrical connections, speakers, even fans.
