Korinna Kriemhild. Patio & Pergola. February 17th , 2017.
Patio gazebos are installed by either bolting them to the surface of your patio, or by cutting post holes in your patio and cementing the posts into the ground below. Consult the manufacturer to decide which method to use, and how to go about doing it. Depending on the design and weight of your gazebo, methods will vary.
Pergolas. What are they? Are there diverse types of pergola? What are they used for? What materials are used for pergolas? Are they available as customised kits? How much will they cost?
An alternative to a complete awning is a shade sail. Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.
Before digging, make sure that you know where all underground utilities are identified. To find out, you can order a "utility locate," by calling 811.
