Pergola Disposal in North Port

2020-11-25 By Admin

pergola disposalA pergola disposal job is no easy task. Mostly because of its sheer size and weight. But also, due to the fact that there are a lot of materials to wrangle as you go along. Then, there’s the matter of disposal, which can also present a big problem. This is due to the fact that most local trash collections won’t pick up such large materials. So, you’ll have to plan accordingly for it not to be a huge pile in your yard which becomes home to pests — rodents and insects alike. So, read on to learn more about pergola disposal and what you need to know.

Safety Precautions

First, let’s begin with some key facts. Pergolas generally stand about 8 to 10 feet high and can be as big as 8×10-feet or even larger. Of course, this means dealing with hundreds of pounds of weight. And, an unwieldy one at that.

An outdoor pergola provides a framework for climbing vines. Replacing a pergola should not be an overly exhausting chore, especially if you have the right tools, some time, the correct know-how and possibly a friend or two to help. If you do not need to keep the materials undamaged, the task comes down to a demolition job. If you want to keep the parts, pay attention when you remove the old garden pergola. --Do It Yourself

What’s more, you have to plan ahead so it doesn’t unintentionally collapse and cause damage to other property. In other words, if the structure becomes unstable during the take down, it could easily crash onto a car, RV, shed, into a pool, or even on your house. The point being, proceed with caution because it does present a real danger.

Pergola Disposal in North Port

First, begin with any electrical components. You’ll need to turn off the power (if applicable) and remove any lighting, along with power outlets. Next, you’ll need to cut any vines free that are connected to any other thing, like a fence. Then, do the following:

  • Take off the roof. If there are panels along the top, unfasten each and then stack them together, well away from the pergola to have ample room to move around.
  • Prop-up the vertical support beams. Next, you’ll need to prop-up the supports. Use long 2×4-foot beams to prop-up the vertical support posts. This is necessary, because as you remove the cross beams at the top, the vertical posts might substantially sag or collapse.
  • Remove the cross beams that run the width of the pergola. After the vertical supports are propped-up, remove the cross beams one at a time and stack them away.
  • Take down the vertical support posts. To finish the take down, you’ll need to take the support posts out of the ground. You can first cut them down, leaving just a couple or more feet above the ground. Then, dig around and up. Lastly, dispose of the materials responsibly.
