Different from the rest!
As a Red Seal carpenter on Vancouver Island, I have in the past been hired to build typical pergolas which use heavy, expensive materials and concrete - resulting in a very high cost.
I decided to create an Affordable Pergola, designed with features and add ons that truly set it apart!
These beautiful cedar pergolas are built with 4x4 posts, 4x6 laminated front and back beams, 2x6 joists and 1x4 purlins. Pyramid blocks eliminate the need for digging holes and pouring concrete, while galvanized and epoxy coated fasteners ensure maximum longevity!
The Affordable Pergola is custom built almost anywhere on your property.
On a slab, deck, lawn, or even lumpy sloping ground - the area is no problem because the post heights are set with a laser.
Plus, the pieces are pre-cut so installation is fast and quiet!
Rainy days? No problem!
The Affordable Pergola can be built level, or with a 3/8" per foot slope from front to back - giving it a beautifully unique but subtle lean-to style effect. The first and last purlin run along the end of the joists, so that a tarp or canvas style cover could go from front to back.
These features make the Affordable Pergola more cover-friendly to help shed rain, should you choose to apply a cover.
Note: Only a non-permanent tarp or canvas style covering is recommended. Use caution in heavy wind/rain. Do not let snow or heavy rain accumulate.
