As one of the foremost timber suppliers in Brisbane, we have become experts on home building projects. While our hardwoods are used for a lot of decking and flooring, they are also perfect for pergolas, carports and patios. Hardwood structures can add a beautiful touch to any home.
Timber is aesthetically and thematically perfect for integrating a home into its natural surroundings. There is nothing like the appearance of wood grain to help a home surrounded by trees “fit into” its surroundings. Carports, pergolas and patio roofs make perfect DIY projects, especially for beginners. They aren’t quite as demanding as a deck or a floor, but they still add value and aesthetics to your home.
Pergolas were originally created to give structure to climbing vines, but the present-day pergola is used to provide shade and shelter in the garden or on a patio. A pergola is perfect for creating a place for you to enjoy being in your garden. It can become a verandah or turn your patio into an alfresco living and entertainment area.
There are plenty of shapes for pergolas. A four-sided pergola attached to the home is the most common, but plenty of people are building free-standing, six-sided or octagonal pergolas, too.
If you don’t have a garage, a carport is a great way to protect your car from rain. A carport is also great for a home that has a one-car garage and two cars. They make great places to park a motorcycle, too. A carport can often double as a sheltered entertainment area.
Any of our hardwoods will work well for a pergola, carport or patio. You can choose from Blackbutt, Spotted Gum, Merbau, New Guinea Teak, Ironbark and more. Your choice of wood will depend upon what look you want and the workability factor. We understand that price can also be a consideration.
