Custom Gazebos and Garden Structures - Sault Ste. Marie, ON
SSM Fencing partners with trusted professionals in Sault Ste. Marie for all your hardscaping and contracting needs. We even build gazebos and pergolas to enhance the appeal of your yard. If you’re the type of person who spends a lot of time in your yard, hanging out with friends and family, you definitely want to consider one of these!
While the two are very similar, the principal difference is the structure of the roof. A pergola typically uses slats for the roof which means it allows sunlight to pass through. A great place to relax during the summer! A slatted roof means it doesn’t offer protection from rain though. A pergola can be constructed as a freestanding structure or mounted to the wall of your house on one side. Selecting the right location is very important which is why we recommend giving us a call for a free consultation beforehand.
On the other hand, a gazebo is much more enclosed in its nature which allows you to use it during harsh weather conditions like heavy rains or strong winds. It is usually built on top of a concrete or paved surface. Excavation might be necessary depending on the land (yes, we do that too!) The roof is completely covered protecting you from the elements of nature. You can build a wall or fence around the structure for privacy and even install a door and curtains, giving you your very own backyard oasis! There are local regulations as well as landscape requirements for a perfect build which is why you need an expert to assist you. Our team has many years of experience and has serviced a large number of happy customers.
There are pros and cons with each option, which is why it is so important to first define your needs and intended uses. Summers in Canada are short so why not make the most of your time outdoors while you can.
Are you looking to entertain your guests in your very own backyard paradise? A gazebo might be a better option in case the weather turns bad unexpectedly. Nothing ruins a perfect evening in the outdoors like having to run for shelter. However, if you’re looking for a more affordable option, then a pergola is your best bet.
