A Fresh and Long-Lasting Look Outdoors…
( pronounced ” per·go·la “ )
An arbor or a passageway of columns supporting a roof of trelliswork on which climbing plants are trained to grow.
Pergolas aren’t just a deck on steroids, they serve as functional outdoor spaces that provide shade and plenty of places to hang plants, baskets, lights or wind chimes. Some are even used to train grape wines. A pergola can be attached to the house as shown here, or can be built separately.
Features to consider: Even without plants, placing overhead boards closer together or using wider boards increases the amount of shade a pergola provides. You can also angle the boards to maximize light in the late morning, high noon, or early afternoon.
Prellwitz Construction uses maintenance-free wood products by Trex in pergola and deck projects.

Trex decking and railing products are made from a unique combination of reclaimed wood and plastic, giving you the best qualities of both materials. The plastic shields the wood from moisture and insect damage, so there’s no rotting or splintering. The wood protects the plastic from UV damage and gives your deck a solid, natural feel. It looks great year after year.
