Pergola Advice

Hello all,

 

im looking to replace my pergola which will be covered with colourbond and blue board, making it resistant to weather.

 

just wondering if, for extra security, I should use treated pine or just normal structural pine will do?

 

look forward to thoughts.

Sorry for the slow reply. I'll ask our builder and get back to you.

 

In the meantime, have you seen this video series?

Our builder says treated pine would be your best choice, H4 or above (treatment level).

Hi @Dave,

 

Hope all is well.

 

Just wondering how your pegola plans are going? Is this something you are going to tackle over the Easter break?
