There is something so special about the timeless beauty of an expertly crafted pergola. It forms the epicenter of outdoor family unions, and creates a welcoming aura of homeliness. Do you need a shade providing pergola for your patio? With translucent or tinted roof sheeting perhaps? Perhaps you'd like a retractable shade awning to go with your pergola? Painted a color of your choice? No problem! Our professional team would be happy to transform your vision into a reality.
Pergolas can be classed into 5 groups:
- Basic grid type
- Basic without purlins (rafters only over beams)
- Basic with roof sheeting
- Shade providing
- Shade providing with sheeting
A basic pergola consists of posts supporting a beam or beams, over which rafters are placed at ~800mm centers, and finally purlins are placed over the rafters at ~800mm centers. This type of pergola gives a pleasant 800mm x 800mm grid effect.
The basic with sheeting is self explanatory
A shade providing pergola is the same as the basic except for one crucial element: the purlins are spaced much closer together to create shade. 50% shade and 25% shade are common options. This pergola gives a pleasant slatted appearance.
Once again, the shade providing pergola with sheeting is fairly self explanatory.
This will depend on your preference. We can seal your staircase with:
- An oil-based sealer (clear, medium brown or dark brown)
- A water based sealer (clear, medium brown or dark brown)
- A traditional 'shiny' varnish
- An enamel color of your choice (white is a favorite!)
You may also leave your staircase natural should you choose to do so. (unsealed)
