More common than pergola removal is pergola installation. Not in this instance. The back pergola wasn’t really being enjoyed by the homeowners. Since the pergola was made of natural wood, it required continual maintenance to keep it from rotting. The homeowners were tired of this expense and effort and asked us to remove the structure.
Scope of Work: Exterior Carpentry and Painting

Pergola Removal and Exterior Painting
The pergola removal was a fast process, as is most demolition. We did need to be careful removing the portions that were attached to the home. Otherwise, it was a fast process of disassembly and disposal.
The homeowners also brought us in the provide some constructive expertise as well. A number of trim pieces on the home and detached garage were coming off the home or were rotted. We replaced any damaged trim areas with composite material which is very long-lasting because of its weather-resistance.
Once the carpentry was complete, we scraped and spot sanded the home, as well as the detached garage. Once completed, we powerwashed the home and outbuildings. This is done to remove dust so we have a clean surface to apply the primer and paint. The house was spot-primed and then given two coats of paint. The homeowners changed the color scheme from white house with black shutters to a creamy light yellow with earthy green shutters.
This entire project took a week to complete.
