Metal is another material choice that offers a completely different look and style. While metal pergolas are rather expensive, they do offer a whole new level of sturdiness and durability, even more so than plastic. Cast iron is a common metal choice, though it is very heavy and will rust when exposed to the elements. Aluminum is better alternative, because it's lightweight, yet still extremely strong. When shopping for aluminum pergolas, be sure to inquire about the hardness rating of the metal. Hardness ratings of aluminum should be T-4, T-5, or T-6, with T-6 being the hardest, or strongest, and thus the most preferable. The other major advantage of aluminum is that it will not rust.
When we talk about pergola design, we're partly referring to the materials used to construct it. The most common material choices are wood, plastic, or metal. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. We'll begin with wood, which is arguably the most popular material choice. When purchasing or building a wooden pergola, the most important consideration is the type of wood used. Redwoods, such as cedar, are preferable because they are naturally resistant to rot, decay, and insect infestations. If building your own pergola, you may want to shy away from treated woods, particularly if the structure will be used to support climbing plants. The chemicals in treated wood can poison and kill some types of plants. When constructing the pergola, be sure to use stainless steel fasteners that won't rust.
Traditionally, the gazebos are octagon, providing a Victorian or Colonial feel the design. The size youre looking for will be dependent on how you plan to use the gazebo. Smaller structures work well for small ceremonies in which the wedding party uses the shelter as a focal point. But, larger gazebos can cover whole receptions.
