When building a pergola (or any other roofed structure, for that matter) draining rain and excess water is a valid concern. That’s why installing box gutters is an absolute must.
Box gutters are easy to prepare and install, as you’ll see in the video below. Of course it helps that Peter, the guy installing these things in the video, is an expert builder with many years of experience and many builds to his credit, so he makes things look very easy.
They are also easy to maintain and repair, and that’s important if you want your pergola to continue looking great even after a few years. For more information on installing gutters for your pergola, check out our previous blog posts on building a pergola.
