Where to Mount My Patio Cover Posts

Since the posts are the “legs” and foundation of your new pergola, it’s important you select the best location, depth, and method for installing the posts. Before you even select your post height on your order, you should investigate through your HOA or county to find out if there are pergola permits required for installing an outdoor structure like a wood pergola. They’ll also be able to tell you things like where your frost line is and how to schedule for utilities to mark the spot where it’s safe to dig your post holes. If you’re mounting your posts in the ground, you’ll need to order posts tall enough to account for the depth you have to install the posts below the frost line. If you’re unsure about the post installation, we recommend contacting a local contractor or handyman/woman to help you with the pergola installation.

What are recommended uses for outdoor patio covers? Is there a type of wood that works best when creating a year-round outdoor retreat? These are top questions that we’ll answer here. Be sure to call us with other questions you have about our pergola kits, we’re happy to help!

What are the Best Uses for Patio Pergola Covers?

If you want to add a touch of charm to your outdoor space, there’s no better way to do it than with a wood patio pergola. These pergola structures can transform a mundane backyard into a cozy or expansive retreat with minimal effort. With a range of potential uses, you can tailor a pergola to your specific needs. Or perhaps you just want a tranquil spot to relax and enjoy a meal next to the pool – in that case, use one of our pool pergola kits as your custom patio cover to create a cozy haven. Some other great ideas include using a a 16×20 patio cover as your very own hot tub pergola, or even to protect your outdoor cook station and kitchen.

When Can I Add a Coat of Stain or Paint to My Pergola?

Maintaining wood pergolas and patio covers may seem like a daunting task, but with a little effort, you can keep it looking beautiful for many years. Let’s start with timing. You’ve received your brand new pergola kit, and you’re eager to add the finish you’d like so it blends perfectly with your home’s exterior. But when it comes to finishing your pergola with stain, paint, or sealant, timing is everything. The timeframe for applying your desired stain, sealant, or paint depends on the wood type you select. We offer our pergola kits in 2 high quality wood choices – #1 pressure treated southern yellow pine, and rough sawn western red cedar.

If you purchased one of our pine pergola kits, follow these guidelines: Assemble your pergola as soon as possible after receiving. Pressure treated pine lumber must dry out before applying stain, sealant, or paint in order for the lumber to be dry enough to absorb the stain or sealant. So after assembling your pine pergola, wait 2-4 months for the pressure treatment to dry before applying your sealant of choice. This timeframe depends on your location, the time of year, and the level of humidity in your location. Follow advice from your local stain & paint specialist for how and when to stain and paint outdoor structures. Then you’ll want to reapply your chosen finish every 1-2 years to keep your pine pergola looking as good as new.

If you purchased one of our cedar pergola kits, you can apply stain, paint, or sealant right away – no waiting required. With cedar lumber,  you can stain or seal prior to installation if desired. Just like with pine, you’ll want to reapply your chosen finish to your cedar pergola every 1-2 years to keep it looking as good as new.

How Can I Add Extra Shade to My Patio Cover?

Our freestanding pergola kits have the flexibility to add a metal roof, a colorful retractable canopy, or a custom built shade sail. Our Big Kahuna PLUS pergola kits are our full size pergola offering that you can select optional metal roofing in a variety of popular colors. This style provide maximum shade for the ultimate patio cover. If you’re looking for extra shade coverage and some protection from rain, select one of our canopies or shade sails. These pergola covers can be added to our other full size pergolas including the Fedora, the Sombrero, or the Melbourne. Of these styles, the Fedora is one of our most popular patio roof kits, bringing a stylish flair to any outdoor room!
