Pergolas and patios
Opinions vary on the definitions of pergolas and patios. A pergola in the traditional sense is an open-roofed structure for growing climbing plants or grapes. In Australia, pergolas are commonly roofed using corrugated polycarbonate or metal to provide a versatile space all year round to extend your outdoor living naturally into the garden.
They are the perfect companion for established gardens, and can be positioned to provide shade for your yard or entry. They provide an excellent place to entertain and relax outside especially when screened with sun filtering blinds.
A patio is a covered outdoor area usually with direct access from the house and are sometimes referred to as covered decks. No matter what type of outdoor living area you want, Blue Mountains Building Company can advise on design, aspect and suitable construction materials and methods.
