 Pergola Maintenance

There are many benefits to painting or staining your wooden Pergola, Trellis or Arbor.

 

Depending on your landscape, these stand alone pieces can either be a staple in your front yard, or it can serve as a roof for a walkway or for your back porch.

 

When you maintain an outdoor pergola (featured above), what you really do is not only take care of its appearance but increase its lifespan. Knowing how to care for your pergola is important, especially since pergolas can be made from many different materials such as wood, plastic, vinyl and metal. 

 

Here are a few tips on maintaining your wooden Arbor, Trellis and Pergola's.

 

Hose it down!

  • It is best to use a high pressure water hose to eliminate any dirt that may be clinging on the surface, especially before you paint or stain. As always, remove all other furniture and other items laying around during the process to avoid any damage.

Clean It!

  • Purchasing the proper cleanser for your outdoor pergola that can be applied with the help of a brush. For smaller more stubborn areas a tooth brush will work just fine! If you find any splinters, you may carefully remove them.

For metal pergolas, a bristle brush is beset and a good way to clear away all the rust clinging to the surface. For a Vinyl pergola, you will want to follow the manufacturer's instructions, a simple detergent works just fine as well.

 

Check for Mildew and Stains

  • Mildew is something you cannot afford to ignore unless you want to risk spoiling the appearance of your pergola. Removing mildew can be as easy as mixing a cup of oxygen bleach with a gallon of water and apply it after thoroughly washing your pergola.

Rinse the Pergola!

  • Once the cleanser has been properly applied, and clear of all dirt and debris, then you can rinse with a hose. Repeat the exercise if necessary.

Touch Up Damages!

  • A touch up kit or repair kit makes it easy to work on areas that are damaged.  Most vinyl pergolas come with a touch up kit.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

Consummate professionals! We hired Brooks to repaint the exterior of our house, and they did a fantastic job. The paint looks wonderful, everyone was also on time, friendly, and respectful of our property. Exceptional communication through the entire process. I was worried about damage to the landscaping near the house (bad previous experience with another outfit), but they were all very understanding and the crew was super careful. Did what they said they would do with no weirdness, no smoking, no radio, and they cleaned up after themselves nicely. This picky customer is very happy!

Brooks Painting has be in business a long time in our area. As a native resident we have seen and heard of their professional & quality painting. In looking for bids on painting our house Brooks was referred numerous times. When Jeremy came out to meet us we were sold on using their services and looked no further. Every aspect of this company was very upfront, professional and made us feel safe, valued and comfortable hiring them. The office staff kept good communication with us. The color matching was perfect. The crew showed up on time, were respectful and did a great job from prep to the final end of the project. The warranty offered was a plus and the liability coverage gave us peace of mind also. The price was well worth all that was included in the project so we had little to do but move our stuff away from the house. Thank you Brooks painting, crew and staff for making our home new again :)

I wanted to have my kitchen cabinets painted but knew that that was a job that required skill and expertise. I called Brooks Painting and the experience from start to finish was perfect! Everyone I dealt with was personable and good at their jobs. They spent time answering questions, explaining the exact process, and did the work precisely as promised. They even did a few other small jobs (repairing and painting 2 water damaged ceilings) to perfection. And everything was neat and clean when they left! And the cabinets – better than I could have hoped for. Esteban is a master craftsman who was meticulous in every aspect of his work. The finish is smooth as glass with no imperfections. I couldn’t be happier!
