What is a Pergola? I mean technically?

Although roofed structures may be referred to as a pergola, a pergola is technically an unroofed structure, with or without a permeable covering such as shade cloth. The technical term for a roofed pergola or patio is identified as a verandah in the BCA.

Treated Pine

Treated pine is the classic material choice for your pergola. Timber is generally larger in section that steel frames, and has a softer, warmer, more natural feel. Once painted with an external grade quality paint, you shouldn’t need to worry about repainting for 10 years. Climbing plants will love to grow on the timber posts and beams. Treated pine can also be stained where a more natural look and feel is sought.

Cypress Pine

Cypress Pine is a cost-effective soft wood alternative to treated pine. It is orange to light brown in colour making it aesthetically pleasing. It is durable and termite resistant and can be finished in a range of stain colours.

Cypress pine commonly presents surface cracking. This just adds to the natural feel of the timber and does not affect its durability or strength, especially when it is regularly stained.

A beautiful hardwood option readily available in the market is Merbau with its high durability and strength. It is a course-textured timber with a reddish-brown colour. Merbau is also available in larger sections for the more high-end pergola designs.

Hardwoods are a premium timber with natural durability and beautiful natural wood grain. As such the cost of using hardwoods for your pergola will need to be considering before making a decision.

Steel frame pergolas

Powder-coated steel posts and beams can be considered for a more modern, maintenance free alternative. Modern home designs generally work better with steel frame pergolas, the primary purpose being to provide a contemporary add-on design to an already existing contemporary designed home. Steel pergolas can therefore more commonly be seen in the inner-city suburbs in Melbourne, where the focus is on aesthetics as opposed to practicality. Black and white finishes can create a striking addition to your contemporary home.

A Cost-Effective Solution

A pergola can be designed and built for approximately half or one third of the cost of a roofed structure such as a patio or verandah due to not requiring a roof, stormwater connection, less wind loads to consider for the stability, and in many cases will not require a building permit.

An open-roofed pergola cannot easily be covered with a roof, here’s why…

Although it may seem straight-forward and tempting to close the roof of a pergola, it is far from being straight-forward. A building permit will be required for the conversion which will require Engineering calculations due to additional wind loads and drawings. Given the complications, it would be advisable to demolish the existing structure and start fresh.

Please note that it is illegal to cover the roof of an existing pergola without obtaining a building permit, so we urge our customers to discuss such plans with us before making any decisions.
