Pergola Materials

Tropical Hardwood Choices Square-min

The first step in choosing a great pergola is to decide on the material. There are many great options to choose from, and each have their pros and cons. Charleston Pergolas exclusively uses wood to build our pergolas, because we believe luxury pergola structures best enhance a property when a natural material is used.

The four most common types of wood we use to build our pergolas are pressure treated wood, Red Cedar and Redwood and Tropical Hardwood. Each type of wood will affect the total budget of the project, the look of the final product and the resilience of the product over the years.

Whatever material you choose, your custom pergola is guaranteed to look beautiful and be a great addition to your space. We design pergolas that are both highly functional and beautiful.

These shade structures can feature intricate or simple design elements but will always produce a more comfortable environment that adds privacy to your backyard and creates a great space for relaxation. Pergolas can be used in almost any setting, including patios, pools, gardens or backyards.

Outdoor Pergolas

The best place to be in Charleston is outdoors, especially in the spring and summer. That's why Charleston's become so popular it doesn't get much better than being outside in your own yard under a pergola.

Outdoor pergolas are a great way to protect you from the heat from a Charleston summer but still allow the sun to come through for light. That's what makes an outdoor pergola such a unique option for covering your patio.

They give you the benefits of both access to the sky and relief from the heat. We only use the best materials and our builders are dedicated to creating the perfect pergola for your space. We will work directly with you to design a pergola that's going to enhance your property and make you love spending more time outdoors.

If you prefer to have a roof over your pergola, we can create a great design that includes protection from the sun, access to the outdoors and lets you enjoy the backyard on those rainy days.
