Why Only These Sizes?

Here at The Luxury Pergola, we wanted to create a product that could accommodate any customers need in any location. In the United States, there are many different seasons depending on which state you live and region of the country you are in.

Some customers have a need to worry about snow load, while some need to worry about hurricane force winds. Our available sizes have been carefully crafted to not only be safe under large weight from snow or heavy push from wind but we also designed the luxury pergola to last for years and years to come.

Pergola Lengths

In connection with our standard louver widths, you can take that width and run the length up to 20 feet. giving you the ability to have a custom pergola to your needs ensuring we make you the perfect pergola for your outdoor living needs in your own backyard.

This allows for the smallest units, by width, to be:

  • 8x8

  • 10x10

  • 12x12

And largest units to be:

  • 8x20

  • 10x20

  • 12x20

And every size in between.

How much space do I need?

We get this question a lot, if you're not sure on right size pergola for your space we are here to help! We want you to be satisfied with your purchase, so we make sure we find the right pergola size for you whether you have a small patio or large deck we help ensure you have enough space for the unit.

Following your sizing needs and using our pergola size guide we can help find the perfect fit with the perfect pergola for you and your outdoor space. Having the correct size pergola is important.

If you have large decks in your outdoor space and want to have large coverage, then a smaller pergola may not be what you're looking for, where as if you have a smaller space, different size pergola kits like our smaller pergola sizes may be the right pergola size direction to move in.

Need Larger?

We designed our kits to match there needs for any situation. So what if you need bigger than a 12x20? Maybe a 12x40 or 24x20 or even 24x40, can we do it? Yes, and larger pergolas.

The Super Pergola

The Luxury Pergola allows 2 or more units to combine to each other and share a post to create a larger pergola. While each unit would add 2 posts overall a 2 unit Super Pergola would have 6 posts. Adding 2 posts for each unit connected.

This unit doesn't host a single beam length of 24 feet. instead it utilizes the same sizes for each 12x20 with a connection being right in the middle on the shared post.

Super Pergola Information


We created a product that by design is overkill. We wanted to have a robust strong build this way you know with confidence your investment was worth it. Living without fear of wind lifting and throwing your unit around like a trampoline in a storm.

Wind Load

Every Luxury Pergola is built to not only meet the expectations of your climate, but exceed even some of the harshest weather conditions. Our engineering is designed to withstand winds up to 130 mph.

Depending on your location, you may need to achieve a higher wind rating. With our engineering team, we can help you achieve a higher wind rating with varying modifications to installation process and product. Contact us today if you would like more information.

Snow Load

Other pergolas will only handle snow up to 8.2 lbs. per square foot (quite weak), the Luxury Pergola is engineered to hold up to 60 lbs per square foot of snow load when closed. This is massive as many parts of the country experience very heavy snow fall. Keeping the louvers open is best practice for those home owners that are in the heavy snowfall areas.
