post and beam pergola customer “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 the 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. 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.
