Our DIY Kits will save you time, money and headaches. They are assembled to your exact specifications and we also provide engineered drawings for council/shire approvals. Pergola kits are pre cut for ease of installation, all you need to do is assemble them.
Click on the letter at each side of your structure and enter the measurement in millimetres, 1m = 1000mm, 3.67m = 3670mm etc It’s very important that you get your measurements exactly correct as your timber will be cut precisely to these dimensions.
The height of your pergola is measured to the top of the posts. So, in all likelihood there will be a beam sitting below this height. You’ll need to consider this when calculating the clearance for your pergola. Also please remember that if your structure is on a sloping site the height provided must be the largest required.
The height of your deck is measured to the top of the posts. Also please remember that if your structure is on a sloping site the height provided must be the largest required.
Hip ends are enclosed at the end of the structure with rafters going to each corner from the ridge. The effect often mirrors that of a house roof. A hip end can provide more shade and reduce the amount of airflow through a structure.
Gable ends are open at the end of the structure. With a Gable end, the ridge of the structure continues until it is above the end beam. Gable ends provide good airflow and are generally slightly cooler than other options.
Pergolas are attached to a home’s eaves using long fascia brackets, that are inserted through a hole in your home’s fascia and are bolted to rafter stiffeners that in turn are fixed to your home’s internal rafters. This takes the load of the structure off of the eave and distributes it over the pergola and your home's roof.
Attaching multiple sides: if more than one side requires an attachment please advise us separately.
Fascia brackets can’t be fitted to eaves over 600ml wide. Some steel framed homes may require extra engineering in order to ensure correct attachment. State legislation and building codes vary from state to state and some areas require closer attention to attachment method than others.
You have the option to select Laserlite 2000, Laserlite 3000 or Colorbond® roofing for your project. Available in all colours and applicable profiles, we will determine your choice once you are satisfied with your projects price.
Your pergola will come with relevant ridge capping, gutters, barge caps and downpipes, all provided in your choice of Colorbond® colour. If your structure is attached along one side, we will provide a custom internal gutter that will ensure that water from your structure doesn’t add to that of your home's existing stormwater.
