Pergolas, Defined

What are Pergolas?

A pergola is an outdoor structure consisting of vertical pillars or posts that support a series of crossbeams or rafters on top. The beams create a grid-like pattern that provides partial shade and defines a designated space within the outdoor space. Pergolas are often made of wood or metal and can be freestanding or attached to a building. They serve as an architectural element that adds height, visual interest, and a sense of enclosure. Pergolas are commonly used to create outdoor seating areas, dining spaces, or to define pathways. They also offer support for climbing plants, such as vines or roses, which can be trained to grow and cover the pergola, providing additional shade and a lush, green aesthetic.

Preferred Woods for Outdoor Construction and Their Sustainability



At FineHouse we have become increasingly fond of Accoya wood; which is a branded name for Radiata Pine that has been modified by pressure treating it with acetic acid, can you say Vinegar! This process makes it way more durable, stable, and resistant to decay.

 In the picture below, we chose Accoya when the customer asked for a black finish. Any other species painted black will seriously distort under the duress of solar radiation. 

Accoya is sourced from certified sustainable forests and is fully biodegradable at the end of its life cycle. Its durability means it has a longer lifespan than many other wood products, reducing waste and minimizing the need for frequent replacements. This unique combination of sustainability, durability, and environmentally friendly properties makes it an attractive option for a range of applications, both residential and commercial.
