Each roof rafter is dovetailed into the ledger that is attached to any home, garage, or building structure. Typically there are front posts connected by a support beam with two knee braces. Generally there are no side posts or support beams with knee braces. This is great application for installing a pergola over a deck.
Our attached pergolas are a great way to add value to your home and deck or yard area. Please view our gallery and make notes of different design elements that appeal to you such as stain colors, knee brace styles, beam profile styles, louvered roofs, etc. If you are unfamiliar with terms like 'posts', 'beam profiles', 'knee braces', 'louvered roofs', etc. then, visit our pergola kits page to learn about pergolas and pergola kit options.
