Offered in standard sizes ranging from 8×8 up to 20×20. Custom sizes available upon request. Like all of our pergola kits, all lumber is pre-cut, pre-drilled and marked for easy assembly.

Solar Pergola Kit Post Mounting Hardware Notes

There is additional post tie-down hardware required that is not supplied with your kit because the tie-down requirements will vary depending upon local codes. If you purchase post mounting hardware, your kit will come with one base for each post, plus galvanized nails for fastening the bases to the posts; and pressure treated pine kits will also contain one Tapcon screw for each post. The engineered drawing you’ll receive with your kit will provide information about foundation requirements and post base attachment.
