“I might have been willing to cover the entire pool, which would have been a huge pergola; but Tyler said, ‘Why don’t we start with one section and see how you like it? You can always build more.’

They built it in a way that we could do a second phase if we wanted. They weren’t really pushy. It was clear that he was just trying to help me meet our goals.” – Sarah Burton – UT

Another unique feature that we include with every timber pergola kit is drop-in rafter layouts. There are two main benefits of the drop-in rafter layout. The first is ease of installation. Because the timber beam that supports the rafters is already marked and slotted, you don’t have to measure anything or try to figure the proper spacing of your rafters. However, the primary benefit of the drop-in rafter layout is that it helps prevent warping and twisting of the rafters year after year. The hard work is done for you by our experienced craftsman.

FullWrap™

The extra visual symmetry will grab your attention and is aesthetically pleasing. The FullWrap™ is one of our most popular upgrades.

Cantilevered Roof

A cantilevered roof is a popular feature on a timber frame pergola. While the added architectural look is pleasing, it also adds more functionality to your structure.

This upgrade is most effective in tight areas. The cantilevered roof will prevent obstructing the view and keep a walkway open.

Arched Knee Braces

Arched Knee Braces feature a keystone capped at the center.  This original style is extremely popular on timber frame arbors, gazebos, pavilions and pergolas.

Beautiful Arched Knee Braces also carry an advantage over horizontal beams by providing a greater load carrying capacity.

Privacy Lattice

Lattices are the perfect way to add privacy to your structure and are used for additional shade and wind protection. Furthermore, they help to define boundaries and channel foot traffic.

Lattice panels combined with a trellis, arbor, or pergola take advantage of vertical space in your yard. Providing surfaces for growing vines, hanging planters, and wall art.
