Pergola FAQs

What is a pergola?
A pergola is a style of open beam shaded area that is ideal for decks, patios, or as freestanding semi-covered areas in a yard. Traditionally made of wood, the pergolas we offer at UglyDeck are made of vinyl, resulting in a long-lasting, beautiful, and fully customizable addition to your outdoor living space.
What is the purpose of a pergola?
A pergola offers a semi-shady place for entertaining, sitting and relaxing, or even setting up outdoor cooking areas. They can be small or large and offer the option to attach to the home to provide an exceptional area for a patio, deck, or porch.

Do I need a permit for a pergola?
Determining if you need a permit for a pergola depends on your location, the local bylaws, and the size of the pergola. It also may be dependent on the position of the pergola and if it is attached to the house.
