Looking to probably build an arbor above our garage doors but cannot figure how to attach it to the actual house. Should I expect to cut out part of the vinyl? Or hang on the vinyl? What is protocol?

It would be much easier to just set posts to hold the arbor instead of attaching it to the house. In addition, if you do this, it would give you the option of removing the arbor at a future time if your tastes changed.

I thought an arbor was a stand alone trellised arched entry into a garden area? What would something like this be doing above a garage door?
