What is the difference between pergolas and gazebos?

Although very similar, a pergola and a gazebo’s main difference is how the roof functions. While a gazebo provides complete shade from the sun and other elements, a pergola has a slatted roof that allows a reduced percentage of sunlight to shine through. Pergolas are usually used to provide partial shelter in certain areas such as gardens, leisure areas, patios, or decks.

How much does a new pergola or a gazebo cost to install?

The cost of a new gazebo or pergola can vary dramatically based on the size of the feature, the materials used, and the corresponding installation required. If you seek more information or would like a quote on a project idea, contact Red Isle Contracting in Edmonton today!

Where is the best spot for a pergola in my yard?

Although a pergola can be installed almost anywhere in your yard, many of our clients choose locations such as over their outdoor BBQ or dining area, next to a pool, over a hot tub, or adjacent to a backyard firepit. However, with the help of Red Isle’s expert pergola installers, the best spot for your new pergolas is up to you!

What is the average height for a Pergola?

The height of a pergola is, of course, dependent on the size of the pergola you’d like constructed. On average, a normal height for a pergola would be in the range of two metres to 3.5 meters depending on the location and installation.

Are pergolas effective at blocking rain?

Although pergolas can offer some natural protection from light rain, generally they are not designed to be rainproof. For a solid rainproof roof, you may prefer a gazebo, also offered by Red Isle’s expert gazebo team.
