Pergolas Winnipeg

Pergolas

In addition to decks, we also supply and install pergolas! A pergola can add a beautiful touch to any backyard, in addition to the great features, like shade, that it also provides. They come in lots of different sizes, as well as with different options, like end cuts, lumber type, or height. You can have a freestanding pergola, or one that’s attached to a wall. The choice is yours!

Types of Lumber

  • Brown Pressure Treated Wood
  • Rough Sawn Western Red Tight Knot Cedar

Wood Pergolas

Wood pergolas are the most popular type of pergola; they’re the pergolas we offer here at MaenDecks. Our wood pergolas are built with brown pressure-treated lumber or rough-sawn western red tight knot cedar—the choice is yours! Both of these options lead to gorgeous, natural-looking pergolas that are resistant to rot, pests, fungus, moisture, and more. We can stain your pergola to be almost any colour you like, so it’s easy to integrate into any landscape.

Vinyl Pergolas

Vinyl pergolas are built with PVC vinyl. More often than not, vinyl pergolas are prefabricated, as it’s difficult to custom-build with vinyl; it’s not as forgiving of a material as wood.

Aluminum Pergolas

Aluminum pergolas are a lot like vinyl pergolas in that they usually come prefabricated. Though aluminum pergolas cannot typically be custom-built with the speed and ease of wooden pergolas, it is possible to incorporate adjustable shading into an aluminum pergola.

Mixed Material Pergolas

Mixed material pergolas can be built out of any combination of wood, vinyl, aluminum, and other materials. In some ways, you might consider a wood pergola with an added retractable canopy covering a type of mixed material pergola. These are often custom-built with wood as the base and aluminum, vinyl, or other materials used for aesthetic appeal.

Benefits of Adding a Pergola

Shade and Shelter

Despite their open rafters, pergolas can add quite a bit of shade to your backyard. You can place patio furniture, barbecues, hot tubs, and more under a pergola; you’ll benefit from the shade blocking most of the sun’s rays while the open rafters still allow some sun to warm your skin.

When needed, it’s also possible to purchase a retractable canopy cover for your pergola so that it can be used as a shelter that offers even more shade than usual.

Architectural Interest

Pergolas are among the most unique structures you can use in your landscaping—they’re the perfect solution for anyone looking to add a shaded area to their outdoor oasis without building a full gazebo. Our pergolas are an elegant and versatile way of dramatically altering your yard and creating an inviting space for your friends and loved ones—all while adding a stylish and functional new feature.

Flexible Outdoor Living Space

A new pergola can add an incredible amount of flexibility to your outdoor space. The open rafters on a pergola mean that you can hang lights, plants, and other ornaments with ease—you can change up your pergola for different seasons or events. Looking for a bit more shade? You can cover your pergola with a retractable canopy cover. Place your pergola above a garden path to add interest, or put it by your home to add a place to relax and unwind. The possibilities are endless.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Most Popular Pergola Sizes?

Pergolas vary dramatically in size—the pergola that’s right for you will depend on the size of your yard and where you want to place it. Some of the most popular pergola sizes include 10’ x 10’ (for small yards), 10’ x 14’ (for outdoor dining areas), and 16’ x 12’ (for a large pergola). We can customize your pergola to fit within your yard.

How Much Maintenance Does a Pergola Require?

Pergolas require very little maintenance. We recommend cleaning foliage around the pergola and trimming branches where necessary. You’ll also want to inspect and clean the pergola at least once each summer; you may need to reapply a wood stain once every few years.

Can I Add a Fireplace or Outdoor Kitchen to My Pergola?

You can! With a large enough pergola, you can even have a kitchen and living room area warmed by a double-sided fireplace. Our pergolas are built to last, and the heat from a kitchen or fireplace won’t damage them as long as the fire isn’t too close to the wood.

What Factors Affect the Cost of a Custom Pergola?

Several different factors affect the cost of a custom pergola, including:

  • The size of the pergola
  • The materials used
  • The shape, the ends, and other customizations

How Long Does Pergola Installation Take?

Typically, a pergola can be installed in 1-2 days, even if the pergola is quite large. Our team installs pergolas quickly and efficiently; when you buy a custom pergola from us, we’ll give you full details on the estimated timeline.

Will a Pergola Increase My Home Value?

Yes, a pergola has the potential to increase your home’s value. To the right buyer—someone who likes to spend time outside with friends and family—a well-built pergola can be a huge incentive to purchase a home.
