Pergolas can be described as an outdoor room that has cross rafters and no walls. It provides an airy space to relax or dine. A pergola is generally a freestanding structure and some homeowners choose to add lattice to accommodate vines or for more shade. With its freestanding structure, the pergola does not need any complex connections with the house and this plays to its advantage as a home improvement project. West Coast Paving Stones can help you create those breezy, airy, and beautiful pergolas that will instantly up the aesthetic appeal of your property.

A pergola gives an option to define your outdoor living space in a very affordable manner. As pergolas have an open structure, they do not make the space feel confined or small. The flooring under the pergola can be done in a way to complements the beams of the pergola.

Building a pergola is quite inexpensive and an easy project. Although there are more ornate and elaborate options available, if you are not looking at spending a lot of money you can find an economical yet beautiful option.

There are many types of pergola styles and designs to choose from. You can also get a customized one created per your preferences and specifications. Some common types of pergola are:

  • Pitched pergola: This design has an angled or pitched roof. The roof allows for easy rainwater runoff.
  • Gabled pergola: They have a triangular shape and hence add height.
