Delta Decks has a lot of experience in pergola construction.  Pergolas are a common element in deck construction as they provide shelter from the sun and the rain.  There are many types of materials that are used in pergola construction.

If you are looking for a basic pergola construction, you can go with pressure treated wood, 6x6 posts, 2x10 beams and 2x6 rafters.  If you want a more “chunky” look - we suggest going with Douglas Fir or Hemlock 10x10 posts, 4x10 beams and 2x8 rafters.  If you want a long lasting beautiful pergola you can go for Ipe hardwood material.

The pergola construction cost is typically between $20-80 per sq. ft.  The price varies depending on the design and the material chosen for the pergola.  

Some of the pergola construction tips include making sure that your pergola posts are able to withstand horizontal loading forces.   To achieve this resistance you either need to cement your footings into the ground (which we do not recommend because this does not satisfy code requirements as the wood in the ground will eventually rot) or install metal footings that are custom designed for your pergola project.

If you need pergola design drawings or construction details, we provide the design only and design and build service to our clients in the Greater Toronto Area.

The builders were talented and patient enough to accomplish the intricate design that we had planned for our deck. They used only the best materials, but they did stay within our budget.

Burlington. Needed my front and rear decks replaced. Nicky Crone of Delta Decks West was my sole contact and builder. She was very professional and responsive. She clearly knew her stuff and added some great ideas rather than pushing expensive alternatives like some other companies i engaged. Very responsive to both email and phone, delivered on dates and quality. Certainly took pride in providing solutions to a few issues discovered while demo'ing. Workmanship was top notch, happily fixed one item that was not ideal in the build. Slightly higher quote than others but you can buy with confidence. Very happy.
