Big Kahuna Pergola Kit

Pine or Cedar Wooden Pergola Kit?

Our standard style pergola kits are built using a choice of two classic wood types, Pressure Treated #1 Southern Yellow Pine or Western Red Rough Sawn Tight Knot Cedar. Either one is an excellent choice for a sturdy pergola that will last for many years. Both are highly resistant to decay and can withstand severe elements. If your timeline requires adding stain or paint right away to your pergola, choose cedar. Pressure treated pine needs 3-4 months to dry before applying any paint, stain, or sealant.

Freestanding or Attached Pergola?

Whether you choose freestanding or attached, a pergola creates another space for you to spend time outdoors. Free standing pergolas stand-alone and can be used to create a modern outdoor room. Standard sizes have 4 posts supporting the roof part of the pergola. Our attached pergola kits attach to a wall and extend out away from a building, giving you more covered space for your outdoor gatherings. All of our attached pergola kits include a 2×8 ledger board. Standard sizes have 2 posts supporting the cover part of the pergola.

Choose Pergola Kit Post Height

When choosing the pergola post length, consider these questions to help you decide: What is the desired height above the ground? How much space do you want between the bottom of the beam (the low point of the roof structure) and the ground? How will you be installing the posts (buried in a concrete footer, or installed on top of a concrete footer or existing concrete slab)? If installing buried in a concrete footer, make sure to add the length of the post below the ground to the desired height of the posts.

Our team is standing by to help answer any questions about your next pergola. We're available to guide you through the process, provide additional information, or create a custom order.

After you choose the location for your pergola, decide if your pergola will be attached or stand-alone. Then decide how much usable space you’d like between the posts (freestanding), or between the wall and posts (attached).

  • Determine desired rafter length (depth)
  • Determine desired beam length (width)
  • Calculate overall tip to tip dimensions. This is the size pergola you’ll choose. Overall tip to tip = Rafter (depth or projection) x Beam (width)
  • Determine post height.

We do not offer installation services on our standard style pergolas, but we do have a directory with companies listed that offer pergola installation services. These companies are not endorsed by us in any way, but are companies who chose to list themselves on our website to offer installation services. You will also receive a complete set of installation instructions with your pergola kit. Our timber frame pergola kits do include installation, and pricing will be provided.

If one of our standard sizes doesn’t fit your requirements, you can request a custom pergola quote with dimensions unique to your backyard. Once you take your measurements, you can submit a request using our custom quote form, and we will send you a quote free of charge within 24-48 hours.
