Available Upgrade Options


Arched Knee Braces With KeyStone

Arched Knee Braces span the width and length of pergola and are attached at the


Arched Support Beams

Arched support beams create a smooth arched effect to the pergola. Keystones may be added if desired (see below).


Drill For Power

We drill a hole down the center of one of the posts to accommodate all of your lighting and electrical needs.


Privacy Lattice

Four foot tall privacy lattices may be attached to one or more sides of the pergola to provide additional shade and privacy.


Aluminum Knife Plates

(With Fasteners)
Instead of securing the posts in the ground in concrete, we offer the option of setting the posts on a concealed knife plate and securing it to your finished concrete patio or footing.


Full Wrap-Around Roof

Beam profiles can be shown along all four sides of the pergola roof.


Radius Roof

Rafters extend over frame of pergola to form a radius on one side which provides additional shade to your patio.


Decorative Keystones

One of our most popular pergola add-ons are the decorative keystones. We offer the tear-drop keystone or the dove-tail keystone to add a finishing touch to your pergola.


T&G Covered Roof

Top planks completely cover the whole roof to provide total shade for your deck or patio.


Louvered Roof

With the click of a remote the roof will open or close to meet your needs, whether it be sun or shade! When closed the roof will protect your deck and patio furniture from sun, snow, heat and rain. It is also 98% waterproof!

A Western Timber Frame Pergola is Unrivaled in Strength, Comfort and Quality.


Often advertised as “maintenance free”, the initial low cost vinyls or aluminums can be attractive to some. For others, their cheap aesthetic look not only spoils the appearance of the home or business but procures a high cost far beyond its value. Even with metal stiffeners and wood additives these imitation “low cost” synthetic alternatives do not carry the strength or thermal properties required to withstand strong winds or shield from the harsh elements for a sound, comfortable pergola.

Timber is less prone to condensation than aluminum or vinyl and is less affected by temperature extremes.

At Western Timber Frame we deliver perfection from first contact to the successful installation of your Timber Frame Pergola Kit.

Hide Unsightly Hardware and Bolts

Our special mortised joints not only allow for a long-lasting, perfect joint, but it also virtually eliminates the use of unsightly galvanized brackets, hangers, and bolts. Instead, we are able to hide all of this behind the beams and rafters giving you the beautiful old world craftsmanship. Take note of the extremely tight joints that you see in all of our pictures. These joints are not the exception but the rule for every timber pergola kit we deliver.

Easy Installation

These interlocking joints are used on the posts, beams, etc. We test fit every single piece before we ship to ensure that your installation will be easy and fun. Once you have leveled your posts, and, if desired, secured them to a footing, patio, in the ground, etc., you then insert your beams into the mortised joints, as shown below.

Slotted Drop-in Rafter Layout Saves You Time and Prevents Warping and Twisting

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.
[pl_blockquote cite=”Dennis W., Marriott-Slaterville, UT”] The quality of their work is outstanding. It was refreshing to see the work performed on time and as scheduled. I have never contracted work before without a reference, except for these projects and I’m very happy regarding the outcome. Their work is excellent. Thanks Hyrum![/pl_blockquote]

Unlike other full size timber pergola kits only meant for professional craftsman, we’ve designed our kits as a task that can be completed in one afternoon with the help of a friend or two and a few basic tools. All necessary Pergola Kit parts are pre-cut, pre-drilled, and pre-notched for ease of installation. We test fit every single piece before we ship to ensure that your installation will be easy and fun.

[pl_blockquote cite=”Karen Reynolds – Enterprise, AL”] It looks awesome!! Only took about 3 1/2 hrs. My brother said this is a GREAT kit!!! Said if you ever needed anyone to install in our area that he’d be more than happy to do it. Just wanted to let you know how excited we are![/pl_blockquote]
