Things to Keep in Mind When Adding Perth Pergolas in your Home

What to Know About Adding a Pergola

Perth Pergolas are a beautiful addition to any home. Not only do they provide a great place to relax, they can be used as an extra room in your house as well. If you want to add one in your backyard or property, here are some things that you should keep in mind when adding Perth Pergolas in your home.

Do your research

Before you even start thinking about buying any materials or equipment for your project, it is important that you do some research on what kinds of materials are needed and what kind of equipment is required for the job. Also, make sure that you have done some research on how much time it will take for someone else who has done this project before as well as how long it should take them as well since this will determine how long it will actually take before your project actually gets finished.


First and foremost, it is important that you choose the right location for your pergola. The best way to do this is by first looking at the sun’s position during different times of the day. In order to determine the best time to build your pergola, use a program like Google Earth or Microsoft Virtual Earth. Once you have found out where the sun will be located at different times of the day, look for areas with plenty of space around it which would allow for easy access for people who want to sit underneath it during hot summer days as well as those who would like to use it during winter months when there is less sun exposure required.

Consider the climate

The first thing that you need to consider is whether or not your area has a climate that is suitable for pergolas. If not, then it would be best to avoid installing one at all. You will want to make sure that the structure is well-designed for the type of weather conditions within your area so that it can withstand all types of weather conditions.

Consider your budget

Pergolas come in all shapes and sizes and costs vary accordingly. The most cost-effective pergolas are those made from wood or aluminum. However, steel will give you more flexibility in design and durability, so consider this if this is important to you.

Take measurements

When measuring for your pergola, take into account the height of the canopy, as well as any posts that may be added later on. Plan ahead so that there aren’t any gaps when it comes time to assemble! Make sure that each post is securely fastened too — this is especially important if there are lots of holes in your posts (like on some roofs).
