We all want to improve the quality of our living situation.  We strive to get a better job to give ourselves the financial security to live a peaceful and comfortable life. As we gain stability in our futures, we make the decision to buy property which will make it more enjoyable as we struggle through our daily routines. We do extensive research on locations, weighing factors such as proximity to our job, accessibility to good services, and closeness to our loved ones.  There are many available properties on the market, and it is difficult to narrow down our choices to find the one which will meet our strict standards and guidelines.  It must have the required living space to accommodate your family, now and in the future.  The design and layout of the interior must be desirable and pleasant, meeting your particular wants, making you excited as you come home every day.  In addition to the interior, the exterior presents different challenges that should be addressed when you buy a new piece of property.  The landscape must be visually pleasing to the eye, as well as functional to support whatever activities you may engage in on your property.  There are so many options when designing your landscape.  Building a pergola is an ideal addition to any exterior plan.  Jim’s Building Maintenance can provide you with the appropriate pergola that makes your property alluring and enjoyable for all those who visit.

Why Build a Pergola?

A pergola is a feature utilized in garden designs to form a shaded passageway, walkway or sitting area.  It is composed of posts and pillars that support cross beams with open latticework.  The lattice can have vines winding throughout, or other plant life spaced sporadically throughout the woodwork.  It can be used as a standalone structure, or as an extension to your home, providing covering for a terrace, porch, or a connecting path between two sitting areas or locales on your property.  It is a visual enhancement to your landscaped grounds improving the look of the gardens.  Building a pergola will give climbing plants the proper locale to grow, offering a beautiful component for your garden.  It can provide a shaded, comfortable area which allows some breezes and sunlight, while offering protection from the harsh glare of direct sun rays.   This architectural feature is a unique way to add context and culture to your backyard, giving you a centerpiece for social gatherings outdoors.

Types of Pergolas

There are many different variations of pergolas.  You can extend the structure for a carport, offering shade and covering for all your vehicles.  You can build a pergola, such as a gazebo or arbor, on the back portion of your property, adding a pleasant sitting area away from your home.  You can design an awning or verandah, giving you a pleasant look for your landscaped grounds. Jim’s Building Maintenance can design and build any type of pergola, or make a customized version of your plans to satisfy whatever needs you have for your grounds.  Anytime you entertain, you want to impress your visitors with your luscious gardens and landscaped property.  A pergola will aid you in achieving this goal.
