Custom Pergola Building Process

  1. Planning and design: first it is imperative to determine the size, shape, and location of your desired pergola. Make sure your structure will meet all building codes and check with your city if you need a permit.

  2. Site preparation: Clear and level the site where your custom pergola will be built. Make sure the area is free of debris and ready for construction. Here in Utah we often run into uneven ground, ensuring the ground is level and the dirt is compacted is crucial to your pergola foundation.

  3. Material selection: Choose the materials you will use for the pergola's posts, beams, rafters, and decorative elements. We recommend using aluminum pergola products for most custom pergolas we build here in Utah.

  4. Footing installation: Dig and pour concrete footings for the posts. Allow the concrete to cure before continuing construction.

  5. Post installation: Set the posts in the concrete and ensure that it is dried before moving on to the next step.

  6. Beam installation: Attach the beams to the posts, making sure they are level and evenly spaced.

  7. Rafter installation: Attach the rafters to the beams, spacing them evenly.

  8. Finish work: Install any decorative elements and add any finishing touches, such as paint or stain.

It is important to follow building codes and guidelines, and to seek professional assistance if needed. We specialize in custom pergolas and decks, contact us for a free quote on your dream project.
