Pergola Kits Offer Easy Installation and Maintenance When Made of Faux Wood or Stone

Today’s technology gives homeowners the look and feel of natural wood pergolas or arbors without the extra work.

It’s natural to want to enhance your gardens or outdoor areas with an extension of a pergola or arbor in those same elements of wood or stone. But the task of building one in those materials has been a barrier for many homeowners. Not with today’s technology, which creates wood beams that are so real you have to pick one up to know the difference.

“With the weight of real wood or stone, it could easily take you a weekend to build a pergola,” says Bob Hazan, President of Regency Designs. “With FauxWoodBeam’s pergola kits using fake wood beams, two people can have it done in a couple of hours. And no one will be able to tell that it’s not real wood or stone.”

The pergolas are constructed out of polyurethane beams molded from an original wood model. The result, with its raised grain surface, is visually indistinguishable from real lumber, down to the smallest textural details. Polyurethane-based faux wood, however, is lightweight, cost-effective, easy to install, highly durable and not prone to real-wood drawbacks such as rot, insect infestation or eventual discoloration.

“People just don’t have that much free time to spend maintaining their gardens and buildings,” says Steve Barron, President of FauxWoodBeams. “They want to spend the time actually relaxing and enjoying their homes, rather than painting, sealing or cleaning.”

With most of the beams weighing in at 10 pounds each and with clear, streamlined instructions, pergola kits from FauxWoodBeams offer a no-fuss installation. No need for builders—two average homeowners can have a pergola safely and securely set up in approximately two hours.

Once installed, the pergola creates an instant outdoor room that can be enhanced with furniture and other decorative elements to create an elegant, intimate, open-air haven for relaxing and entertaining. Its balanced structure and choice of design—Corinthian, Roman, Spanish and the double-columned, Roman-style variation with balustrade—afford unlimited possibilities for adding style, enjoyment and increased privacy to gardens, patios, decks or any outdoor space.
