Adding a pergola to your backyard is a great way to enhance the landscape and the overall enjoyment of your outdoor living space. As you become familiar with the various types of pergolas, you’re probably wondering whether to choose wood or vinyl. Our Traditional, Artisan, and Arched pergolas are available in wood or vinyl, and our Kingston Pergolas come exclusively in all natural cedar. Here are a few items to consider when making your decision.
Benefits of Wood Pergolas:
Character of the Wood
A wood pergola, with its fine grain patterns and subtle textures, offers an authentic, natural feel that simply cannot be matched by synthetic materials.
Country Land wood pergolas a made from responsibly forested trees, a renewable resource that makes them an environmentally friendly choice.
Choice of Stain Colors
Whether you’re drawn to the light, subtle hues of natural wood, or prefer a dark rich stain for a dramatic look, your wood pergola can be stained or clear coated to perfectly complement your backyard decor.
Benefits of Vinyl Pergolas:
Looks Great in Any Backyard
A bright white or rich ivory pergola is an eye-catching addition to your outdoor living space that blends in beautifully with any backyard.
Sleek, Modern Style
With their crisp lines and smooth texture, our vinyl pergolas offer a modern twist to a traditional structure. Vinyl pergolas are often preferred by those looking to create a more contemporary atmosphere.
Due to the nature of the material, vinyl pergolas do not require re-staining like wood pergolas do as they age, which is why many busy homeowners opt for vinyl.
As you can see, both wood and vinyl pergolas come with a unique set of benefits. Whichever you choose, you can rest assured that you’re getting a beautiful, high quality structure that you and your loved ones will enjoy for years to come. We can also customize any pergola to fit your backyard perfectly. Check out our virtual custom pergola builder to see of the countless possibilities.
