Pergola And Gazebo Contractor

Commercial properties with pergolas and gazebos are like walking through heaven. There’s almost nothing so relaxing than taking in these landscaping accents. On some properties, gazebos are preferred over pergolas, or vice versa, or both designs are used in a larger landscaped outdoor living area.

What is a Gazebo?

A gazebo is a large, octagonal structure usually set in a garden or similarly landscaped space. Gazebos are used often as a community congregation location. Though most are built from wood, you can build gazebos from other materials as well.

Though gazebos have roofs, they are also open on all sides. Some gazebo designs are customized with screens to protect against insects or alternatively, are built so large that they are more commonly referred to ‘bandstands’.

What is a Pergola?

A pergola differs from a gazebo, usually used to shade a walkway, passageway, or sitting area. The structure of a pergola is built from a combination of posts or pillars with supporting beams and an open lattice. Most popular in desert climates, pergolas still find their fair share of use in commercial and residential settings. They provide an excellent place for vines to grow, enjoy shade, and add a whole new dynamic to one’s landscaping. There are three main differences between gazebos and pergolas, and they’re as follows.

  • Gazebos are round and octagonal – usually – compared to pergolas which come rectangular or square.
  • Gazebos have a roof while pergolas have cross beams but no enclosed roof.
  • Gazebos exist as separate structures from all other structures. Pergolas can link multiple structures together or be used as standalone structures.

The Benefits to Hiring a Contractor to Build a Pergola or Gazebo

Both, pergolas and gazebos, are very simple structures that don’t take a lot of materials to create. They can subsequently add a ton in value, especially in cultivating the right appearance, combined with landscaping and other outdoor living elements. Here are some of the amazing benefits to installing structures like these on your property.

  • Use your imagination to create unique, unexpected structures that highlight key features of your landscaping. Be as artistic and dynamic as you want.
  • Change the entire look of your outdoor space on a minimal budget. Both pergolas and gazebos make for great accents in a garden.
  • Create a community-gathering area that fosters connection between anyone using the space. A gazebo is a great place to sit and have a conversation, while a pergola is a wonderful setting to have a stroll around.
  • Encourage exploration of your outdoor living space. If someone sees a gazebo in the distance or an inviting pergola, it becomes difficult not to want to walk over and check it out. In terms of commercial spaces that are accustomed to party-hosting and/or networking, you intelligently design small areas where people can cluster and converse.
  • Architecturally speaking, pergolas in particular can add a lot of dynamics and interest inside a setting that could be lacking.
  • Inside a gazebo or under a pergola, there’s an added sense of privacy. Once you start adding things like drapes, plant life, latticework, and screens, you get even more comfort and privacy.

Best Quality Deck Material Choices

Customer Reviews

My husband and I live in a typical east end semi and this past summer we interviewed with different contractors to build a new back deck, we knew we... wanted to go with composite material as we wanted something that would last a long time and that was low maintenance. After meeting with 5 different companies, we decided to hire GTA decks. When Serge came to see the site, he was professional, informative and efficient. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns with ease and confidence.He did warn us that the permit process may take a few weeks which it did but once the permit was approved, Jason from Serge's team was quick to start the project and got it done within 2 weeks. He was friendly, professional and very skilled! Serge also let us know the aluminum railings would take a while to come in but once it did, his team was ready to install them immediately.Overall, Serge was very helpful and he definitely knows what he's talking about when it comes to decks. We did have to follow up a few times regarding scheduling and timing, however Serge was on top of it and made sure everything was transparent. We would highly recommend GTA decks, we enjoyed working with them and most importantly we love our new deck!read more

With so many deck builders out there, we finally settled with GTA Decks, as Serge provided professional service throughout and the deck was completed... with care. We have a walkout basement so the deck is 9ft off the ground, Serge took care of applying for a permit etc. With the pandemic, the city took a while to process the papers, however, drawings had to be revised and re-submitted to include a staircase to the garden for obvious reasons as this was not in our initial plan. But once it was all approved, Serge and his team completed the project. We are looking forward to enjoying our deck this summer. GTA Decks is top quality and you will not be more
