What Makes A Great Pergola?

The 10 x 12 pergola at the luxury pergola is made of high grade aluminum extrusions that can withstand up to 130 mph wind with the louvers closed and even more with the louvers open. It can also hold up to 6,000 LBS of snow on the roof. Feel free to park your car on top of these pergolas, that's how strong they are.
Create Yard Access When Weather May Vary
Along with the ability to withstand the elements and have longevity, you need to have productivity in all the elements as well. These pergola systems can function highly in almost any weather and do a great job at reflecting heat away as well as keeping snow and rain out to keep you warm.

Can A 10 x 12 Attach On A Patio Or Deck?
A 10 x 12, and any other size DIY pergola, CAN attach on a patio or deck. It is all based on the condition of how you construct said system.
In simple terms, use common sense, if there is a strong foundation then your pergola will not be going anywhere. Add some wood to the joists of your deck or pour a footing for a patio and you will be happy to know your pergola is as strong as Fort Knox.

What Are Standard Size Posts, Beams, Hardware, Etc.?
Let's start at the basics. Standard size posts are 9' in length to create clearance for the pergola. This can be modified to 10' or 8' but 9' has worked for most customers in all circumstances. Beams are another 12" over that giving the pergola a height of 10'.
As for the motor and hardware. It comes in a small box (5" by 7") to fit everything from the transmitter to the remote receiver and so forth. This allows for a nice hidden electrical element rather than some large protruding box.
What Is Required When Built?
Upon being built, very little is required for the homeowner (everything comes ready to go). All you will have to do is have a can do attitude to assemble. This usually takes 1-2 days depending on how much you are working.
There are videos of installation with previous customers online as well. In ST. George Utah there was a great experience of easy installation with a customer for reference. This ease of use is what makes freestanding pergola kits so popular.
Does A 10 x 12 Hold Under Weather?
It has been said once, it will be said again, these pergola systems hold up against weather better than anything on the market. Considering they are made in America allows for them to be made with strength in integrity as nothing is shipped from low quality overseas manufacturers.
