Pergola Information

What Makes Our Pergola Kits Special?

If you are looking to build a pergola, and are comparison shopping, beware of other online retailers that sell easy install pergola kits that are mass produced with cheap lumber, coated zinc hardware, steel plates that hold rafters together, and have complicated assembly instructions. Here at Pergola Depot we never use any inferior materials or building practices such as these. We produce our pergolas with the mission of uncompromising quality, and have taken every step to make certain that your pergola kit will be easy to install, and stand the test of time no matter which part of the country you live in. Easy Install Pergola KitsOur pergola kits were originally designed to be used in the Central Florida area where we have to deal with extreme weather situations all year round such as:

  • Hurricanes
  • The second highest air salt content in the world
  • Daily summer rain/thunderstorms
  • Tornadoes
  • Winter drought conditions

These elements can be detrimental to the life of the materials used in outdoor products. So as you can see we have good reason to be sure that our easy install pergola kits were designed with quality materials that can stand up to harsh elements.

Our pergolas are engineered to withstand 160 mile per hour wind gusts!

As with all of our kits, we have two different lumber options to choose from: pressure treated pine, or rough sawn western red tight knot cedar. We only use stainless steel hardware to prevent rotting. Every kit comes complete with all pre-cut, pre-drilled lumber that is pre-marked for easy assembly. It also includes a set of step-by-step instructions to guide you through the assembly process. Our pergola kits are so easy to assemble that two people can easily have most kits set up in four hours or less with absolutely no construction knowledge whatsoever. It’s that easy!

So choose your size, and your end cut preference. Then decide if the pergola will be going on a patio, or into the ground, and before you know it you will be enjoying your backyard under a beautiful pergola cut specifically for you.
