So what's the difference in an arbor and a pergola? Like an arbor a pergola is an overhead structure used to make the outdoors more inviting, to extend livable space, to create a shady retreat, and serve as a major landscaping element. They were known in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Pergolas were also a common feature of early Renaissance gardens in Italy and subsequently throughout Europe. Usually a bit more detailed, pergolas add grace, style and character to your home. Our designers at Action Fence & Deck help you create an environment that reflects your own personality and style.
Generally, arbors and pergolas are either made from a weather-resistant wood, such as western red cedar or, are painted or stained. We have also integrated other materials such as pressure treated wood, decorative iron and stone to create structures that matched or complimented the style of the home design. Whatever your preferences, it all starts with a call to Action Fence & Deck.
