Here is a sneak peak of the seven email topics that will be sent out to help you get started on your own DIY pergola project:
Tools and Hardware Needed to Build
Most of the tools and some of the hardware you need are probably already in your garage or tool shed. Even if you do need to buy then, you will find they will come in handy for more than just this pergola project. We will give you a handy list to take with you tool shopping.
We know this is one of the more intimidating steps in the building process. Don't worry - we will walk you through it. No matter which method you use, will give you the latest & greatest tips on how to secure your posts and never worry about rotting or warping or a strong wind blowing anything over!
Another yucky, scary topic that seems like a hassle more than anything, but you've got to handle it. Always keep in mind that you can have two possible sources of regulations in your area, Homeowner’s Associations and City Building Codes. Information on the possible impacts of both & how to work with them will be provided.
We will give you a quick summary of the most used material types including the various woods and synthetic materials. Yes, some are better (and cheaper!) than others. Where you live & how you want to use your pergola could be the biggest influences.
The possibilities for pergola designs are endless. We cover some of the most commonly used and provide some ideas that could spark your imagination beyond the typical uses.
This is the bottom to it all. Should you buy a kit to save building time and labor? How much would that be? What about if you do choose to build it yourself using a plan? How inexpensive can that really be in comparison? We’ve got that covered for you.
Even the most basic pergola can have a few little details added on for increased style and personality or to enhance its use. These additions can still keep within a budget very easily. We will cover a few of these ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
