At Family Fence in Utah, we have been supplying high quality, durable timber pergolas for our customers to enhance their home and property for years now. Pergolas are a wonderful way to expand and enhance your outdoor living space while adding shade, privacy and comfort.

One of the reasons homeowners enjoy our timber pergolas is the ease of maintaining the beautiful finish. They take a bit more effort than our vinyl pergolas but are absolutely worth keeping your initial investment going strong for years to come.

Easy Maintenance 

Step 1 – Rinse: hose it down with a high-pressure water hose in a downward direction.

Step 2 – Clean: use a detergent that works with wood and use a brush with bristles. If you see any splinters (wood or paint) go ahead and remove it.

Step 3 – Remove Stains: wash off mildew and stains (you can use 1 cup of oxygen bleach to 1 gallon of water). After the stain lightens, wash again with soapy water and rinse well.

Step 4 – Rinse Again: rinse the pergola thoroughly with water to remove any detergent residue.

Step 5 – Repair: touch up any damage to the wood using wood putty if there are cuts or dings and then refinish those spots.

Our experienced team at Family Fence in Utah is proud to provide our customers with top-quality construction and materials along with excellent customer service so you get the results you need from the beginning of the project to the end.
