Where do you need Pergola Builders?
Pergolas, whether attached or freestanding, are great for outdoor living, and especially for entertaining. Attached pergolas are fixed to a building and provide the convenience of having your outdoor entertaining area right outside the door. A freestanding pergola, however, gives you the freedom to make the most of your backyard, and can take the form of a gazebo or a hut. You can even build a pergola over your spa or pool.
Pergolas are often built over decking or paving to provide shade and shelter from the elements. Pergolas are also commonly used in patio areas. If you are erecting your pergola over a deck, think about matching the timber to gain a more cohesive look.
Steel framing is increasingly popular, due to its strength and versatility in design. Steel can be moulded to many shapes from ultra-modern to Victorian, ensuring that a pergola meets the “feel” of the house.

To maintain your privacy, screens can be used. There are a wide variety of screens, including lattice, nature reeding, plants and so on. It really is a matter of personal choice, however a garden designer will be able to advise you on what will look best with your existing house and landscape.
Finally, before building any pergola, check with your local councils to see what regulations and restrictions they have. Your professional will be able to help you negotiate any red tape. Depending on where you live and the scale of your project your pergola builder may need to be licensed. There is more information about the licensing requirements by state on Licensedtrades.com.au.
