Sombrero Pergola Kit Installation Instructions

The Sombrero Pergola Kit

The Sombrero shares a solid design and quality construction with our signature Big Kahuna pergola kit, with half the rafters and top slats as the Big Kahuna, making for a high quality kit that captures the open feel of the outdoors at an even more affordable price point. Like the Big Kahuna, the Sombrero is offered in both freestanding and attached versions, with 90 standard sizes ranging from 8×8 to 20×20, and comes standard with 6×6 posts, double 2×8 beams, 2×8 notched rafters, 2×2 top slats and stainless steel hardware. The rafters are placed on 24 inch centers and the top slats on 12 inch centers, creating a more exposed feel than the Big Kahuna, but with more coverage than a lot of other pergolas on the market. The Sombrero is a great choice to help you create your outdoor space. Custom sizes available.

If you are installing this kit on a concrete patio or on top of concrete footers, we advise that you use 6X6 galvanized steel post bases on each post secured with 5/8”  concrete anchors, which can be purchased from us or your local hardware store. You will need some additional tools for this. There are instructions and videos on how to install them included here, or watch our videos on our Youtube channel.
