Time Frame: 2 Installers, 3 Days.
The homeowners wanted to create a cozy setting for their new patio and hot tub they had just installed, and had us build a cedar pergola to frame it in. Even though cedar is naturally resistant to rot, over time it can still succumb to weathering, insects and rot. To prevent this, we stained it with an oil-base protective coat to prevent the wood from turning grey or rotting out over time. The staining also allows for a custom color that reflects the owner's taste.
