Choosing to Buy or a Pergola or Building It Yourself

Adding a pergola to your patio or deck is a great way of creating an outdoor room with style. You have a number of options – you can either have one custom designed and constructed by a landscape contractor, you can purchase a package model to assemble in your yard, you can build one from scratch, or you can order one and have a landscape company install it.  How do you choose? This article from  the professionals at Outdoor GreatRoom Company goes through the many options that a homeowner has when it came to choosing to go with a DIY pergola or one installed by a landscape professional. Whatever the needs you have are, one or the other might be better for you. Each has pros and cons that go with them, but when you hire a professional for the job, the job is usually guaranteed.
