The Benefits of Having a Pergola Integrated into Your Custom Deck Design

Custom backyard deck with pergola

At Archadeck of Columbus, we build many custom decks with pergolas. A pergola is an easy commitment when it comes to deciding to add a bit of shade protection on part of your deck. This gives homeowners a choice to still feel completely outdoors, even while under their pergola. For many, the idea of being outdoors means no walls, no solid roofed structure. The beauty and function of our custom pergolas make them a common thread that runs through many of our custom deck designs. If you ask us, it’s hard not to love a pergola!

Looking for a custom deck and pergola builder?

If you are considering building a deck, we submit to you the many uses of a pergola addition to your deck design. Why our pergola designs are so popular lies partly within the fact that we can custom-tailor them to specifically suit your needs for style and function. We don’t simply put the same pergola on every deck.

Our custom deck and pergola designs are anything but cookie-cutter – each is as unique as our clients and their homes. We custom design and build pergolas in natural wood choices, from pressure-treated pine, to lovely cedar, and on to low-maintenance materials, like aluminum and vinyl.

While wood is a more traditional choice for your custom deck and pergola design, we ask you to consider the benefits of a low-maintenance material, especially if you build a composite deck. If you don’t have to sand, paint, or stain your deck periodically, you probably won’t want to do it to your pergola. However, you must ask yourself if you prefer the aesthetic of a wood pergola much more than you detest periodic pergola maintenance. If expending a little elbow grease for maintenance now and then doesn’t bother you, a wood pergola is perfect for you!

A beautiful pergola design can heighten your outdoor living by giving your new custom deck a fabulous focal point. Many of our pergola designs are utilized to define a particular space on the deck, such as an eat-in space or conversation area. Pergolas also become the perfect vehicle for added personal design touches by our homeowners. They are great for strings of lights, decorative sun catchers or wind chimes, or to grow fragrant vines.

The design features of your pergola that will set it apart begins with your material choice and continues on to your choice of post type and shape, roof design, and louver type. Our pergola designs can take on an Asian inspired aesthetic, a craftsman air, or an ornate Victorian look – and that’s just to name a few. We can create any design aesthetic you desire. Many of our vinyl pergolas are anchored by stately, robust classic Greek, Roman, and Tuscan columns.
