Attached or freestanding? Vinyl or wooden pergola? Things to think of before getting your pergola

First you should decided between attached pergola or freestanding, Attached pergolas considered more stable, but freestanding are great as well and should last for years to come. Another decision regarding your new pergolas is whether it would be made of wood natural timber or vinyl. The pergola should match the style and décor of your house – natural timber pergolas are more appropriate if your house is of traditional style, whereas wooden composite pergolas would fit better for modern houses, not to forget they cost less and need much less maintenance than timber pergolas. I also must admit that it's quite hard to distinguish between these two types. Vinyl pergolas are easier to maintain and are cheaper than wood – they lack the traditional look of timber or wood, but since you'll probably cover your pergola with plants, it doesn't really have to bother you. Remember – vinyl pergolas won't rust, and they last for life!
