Whether you hire a professional builder to custom-design a pergola or arbour that ideally suits your unique space, or whether you decide to build one yourself from a DIY kit, an arbour or pergola can add a wonderful aesthetic dimension to your property as well as extend its usability.
We’ve been custom-designing and building arbours and pergolas for over twenty years. Unfortunately, getting this done does not fall within everyone’s budget.
To put high quality arbours and pergolas within the reach of more of our customers we searched the market to find what we think is the best source for arbour and pergola kits—RyteScape Premium Pergolas & Arbors from EcoVantage. The advantage of a kit is that it can save both time and money whether you build it yourself, with some help, or have someone else build it for you.
RyteScape Pergolas & Arbors “are made of Thermally Modified Wood…which means they have had the moisture, sugars and resins of real wood baked out using only heat and steam. [This makes them:]
- Environmentally Safe
- Free of Toxic Chemicals
- Light Weight and Easy to Assemble
- Won’t warp, rot or twist
- 30 Year Materials Guarantee
- Dimensionally Stable…”*
And, if you don’t like the kit exactly as it is, “RyteScape Arbors and Pergolas can be modified to fit your needs.”
But, when it comes to DIYers, the amount of time, the appropriate tools, and the amount of past building experience can all be a factor. Some of you will be able to buy the kit and you’ll be good to go. Many others, still wanting to save money, might find building from the kit a little daunting.
That is why we’ve put together a number of options. (See options chart above.)
So, whatever your building skill level, you can still save by buying an Arbour or Pergola kit.
Here is an example of one that has been built. Add a ShadeFX Retractable Canopy and you’ll have a great outdoor space, rain or shine.
That’s all for now. Until next time, we’ll keep Building It Right.™
