Pergola or a Wood Deck?
- Created: Aug 19, 2009 by Ron
We could not decide to add a wood deck or build a Pergola in our backyard. After researching the two we went with the Pergola, we cannot be happier with our decision. After deciding on using rough cedar our next decision was if a preservative should be used, if you want to maintain the new cedar color a preservative must be applied then reapplied every year or two. We went with the preservative figuring that if it was too much work we could always stop using it. Should we decide to stop using the preservative we will plant some type of vine to grow on top. The jury is still out but I can tell you that the applying of the preservative is a real task.
