As the premiere decking contractor in Northern Colorado, JJ Fencing & Decks serves Fort Collins, Greeley, Loveland, Windsor, and the surrounding areas with decking build and pergola construction services. In this article, we’re going to share how to choose the perfect pergola for your deck, whether you’re building a new deck or not.

3 Steps to Choosing the Perfect Pergola

Choosing a pergola can be a super easy process that involves discussing what you want, what your budget allows, and how soon you would like your pergola installed with a local contractor. Want to add a pergola to your decking build? It’s as easy as letting your decking contractor know!

Step #1: Decide Where You Want Your Pergola

It can be easy to jump straight in to size and function, but you need to let the location of the future pergola inform how big it may be. You don’t want to spend hours deciding on all the aesthetics of the structure only to discover that it won’t fit where you want it.

Step #2: Determine Your Budget

It can be a tough question, but do you know how much you can afford to spend on a deck and/or pergola? While you may not know the market price for either of these building services, it’s best to consult your budget and determine what you believe it may cost, what you can afford, and what kind of wiggle room you have. Then, take these numbers to a decking contractor.

Step #3: Contact a Local Contractor

Ready to start the conversation about installing a deck and/or pergola? It’s time you start calling local decking and construction contractors. Discuss with them what you have in mind. They will most likely want to send someone out to give you an accurate quote. Then, you will choose who you want to work with.

Enjoy Your New Deck and Pergola

Whether you get just a pergola or you install a deck too, it’s time you enjoy the new investment in your home. Invite friends and family over for a barbecue. You could even spend time with your spouse out on the deck beneath the brand new pergola. No matter how you decide to enjoy it, just make sure you do.
