Build A Pergola – Installing A Gable Infill

By November 6, 2018December 14th, 2021No Comments


Here’s a video showing how to install a gable infill when you build a pergola.
A gable-roofed configuration is one of the most popular pergola choices due in part to the following advantages it offers to homeowners.

  • The design is very stable and attractive.
  • The pitched configuration lets the roof easily shed water and avoid water-logging.
  • The elevated roof structure provides much more space within the structure, providing better ventilation, among other benefits.

An infill essentially dresses up the gable. It’s optional but it does contribute to the structure’s aesthetic appeal. The infill can also be functional. Some, for example, are made with timber slats or a lattice that allow air to circulate.
