Types of Timber

Timber is a building material used through the ages. It is strong, hard wearing and visually appealing and there’s no other building material that’s better for the environment. With steel prices continuing to rise, choosing to build your pergola with timber is not just the right choice environmentally, it’s also economic. The timber for your pergola kit is available in many different species offering variable strength, size, colour, grain and density.

DIY Pergola Kits Melbourne

A pergola creates a focal point that can complement your home’s existing features, making it both more interesting and functional. Adding a pergola can also provide opportunities to enhance your property’s aesthetic appeal. Pergolas vary in shape and size, from tiny structures that cover a doorstep to large structures that could cover a walkway many metres in length. By experimenting with paint colour, roofing, plants and other decorative objects, all pergolas can contribute to overall visual appeal. At Softwoods, we know that building at home is often a major undertaking, and we want to help you make it happen with as little stress and effort as possible.

We’ve found that using a pre-cut kit makes building a pergola far easier. It’s the ideal solution for people who otherwise wouldn’t have the confidence to cut and build the entire structure themselves. Our design system feeds data from our computer to a saw that precisely cuts the angles for each piece of timber in our pergola, making DIY pergola building nowhere near as time-consuming or daunting as it would otherwise be. By taking the guesswork out of the DIY building process, you’ll save significant time and money. In addition, when you deal with us, you’re paying for the peace of mind that comes with 30-years of experience in the field.
