When we talk about the design of a garden arbor or pergola, we're talking about the material as much as anything. The type of material used in making the structure will have a big impact on the look and use of the end product. There are three primary materials used for garden arbors and pergolas: wood, metal, and plastic. All three materials have their pros and cons, as we will explain.
If you are yet to choose the type of fence that is most suitable for your property, a good fencing contractor should make this simpler for you. They should explain the material options they have and help you choose one that is suitable for your budget and needs. You may also have the option of purchasing your own materials and have the professional carry on with the installation process. This can save you some money so try and find a contractor who is flexible.
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.
Despite the fact that no-one knows the exact word origin of gazebo this just sums it up in Macaronic Latin the word gazebo means "I shall gaze. An iron gazebo is a peaceful place to lounge, and absorb the sights, sounds and smells of nature. Popular in warm climates, they have been used throughout the ages; similar structures were described in ancient Chinese and Persian literature.
