Garden pergola and its purpose
Before taking a pergola, we must clarify the purpose of its use. From this purpose, then the size depends mainly pergolas. If we consider that in the pergola will relax a family with 2 children, expect at least one table and four chairs, and once we know that a large pergola must be at least 8 square meters. However, if we want gazebo
and barbecue, we need space not only for the barbecue but for a side table and pot and suddenly need a pergola at least 12 square meters.
When you have an idea for what purpose we use it, it is good to think about where you will establish a pergola. If it occasionally want to relax with a book in the quiet of the garden, we choose the cabin, which is remote and tourism. If you want her to spend time with his family. We want to include in it and it is better to place near the house. Who wants to go with food across the garden?
If we build a pergola in the immediate vicinity of the house, we can consider anchoring directly to the house. Otherwise, we choose the appropriate type of fitting with which foot to anchor them to the ground
. Other shoes are designed for soft surfaces (grass) and the other for hard surfaces (concrete, pavement). In all cases we bead galvanized to resist corrosion and do not destroy the structure pergolas.
Protecting wooden structures pergolas
Treatment and impregnation glaze for exterior coatings will increase the life of the whole garden buildings. The aim is not only to paint his protection, but also aesthetics. Paints are usually colorless and cover or increasing the pigment in the ink reduces the effect of UV radiation on the surface of the structure.
To extend the life pergolas, but also for the wider possibilities of its use, we can consider appropriate roofing construction. Style roofing is chosen such that the least disturb the appearance of the building. Suitable as a light trapeze polycarbonate that avoids the vagaries of weather and direct sunlight.
