Cedar Pergolas are considered to be the most popular wood type when it comes to choosing your pergola wood.  The main reason for this is that cedar has a natural resistance to certain types of pests and due to the resin in the wood itself it is also excellent against rot and decay.

In addition to being able to build your pergola from this sought after wood type, you can also find a wide range of great looking garden furniture that is manufactured from the same wood, which will compliment any garden structure.  While cedar is popular, the most popular type of cedar has to be Western Red Cedar which is used extensively for wooden deckings as well as wooden outdoor furniture.

Cedar wood is also been used for a range of new pergola kits and can be found in use for rooftop as well as garage pergolas which turn unusual spaces into attractive features.  Garages tend to be rather drab as compared to our home designs and being able to put something as simple as a garage pergola onto your garage will dramatically improve its overall look.

Taking the time to find the right combination for your home of outdoor furniture styles and pergola or garden structures will not only make your garden far more functional but will also increase the value of your home.  In this day and age, when selling properties requires a little out of the box thinking, a small investment such as a garage pergola or rooftop pergola could mean the difference between getting the price you want or having to walk away with much less.
