A Pergola is a construction that's usually built to support climbing plants. These are made from wood and were created to permit other plants and flowers to drape on it. This also functions as a decoration to the outside space to add value and beauty to a property. This construction may be used for special occasions such as weddings.
A Verandah, on the other hand, is also called a terrace. It's constructed outside the house, but still linked to it. It's covered (roof) and decked and occasionally is partly enclosed for privacy reasons.
A Verandah can be an excellent place to have breakfast or a barbecue (BBQ). Often, a Verandah will be used as an extension of the living room to entertain a large number of guests. Verandah's are low maintenance, easy to design and once permits are in place, can be constructed quickly.
Verandahs are a great place to relax, with protection for you and your family from the sun and rain. Verandahs also can be used to store/cover items to ensure that they don’t get damaged by the weather.
The type of materials used by your Pergola or Verandah Builder will vary depending on your desired aesthetic, be it to act as an extension to the look and feel of the current house, or to provide contrast. Both of these structures can boost the classical or modern theme that you wish to achieve.
