Outdoor Pergola

Outdoor Pergola

Pergola is a common arcade in gardens, parks and yards. It consists of vertical columns or beams. Usually, the pillars and lattices of the rattan frame support the climbing plants.

Although similar to the pavilion, the pergola is a bigger, open structure, usually in parallel, can be connected to the house or building.

Not only are the vines beautiful on their own, but they can also provide support for other lovely landscape features such as climbing flowers, vines and ivy. Plant the flowers and vines in the right place and they will grow along the vine racks until they pass through the roof beams. Imagine a giant cane frame, covered with vines and covered with colourful flowers. In addition to adding a vertical feel to your landscape, this can provide a valuable visual feel for your home and your garden.

Affordable and easy to install

A pergola can be the perfect solution if you want to have a large outdoor space without spending a lot of money. Pergola is cheap and easy to build, but they can have a big impact on your yard, especially if you add climbing flowers or other plants. But there's no doubt that you can find affordable, beautiful, durable arbour that fits your budget.

Provide good shade

Although they can't be completely shielded, vines do provide shade. The size of the beams and their spacing will provide exactly some shading, though a canopy itself will never create a fully shaded space. This cuts both ways. For example, you can see the sky at night and observe the stars, even though you are not completely screened. If you want to completely cover the space, simply add a covering layer to the beam. You can also add shadows to your arbor by planting some climbing plants.

Maintain simple PVC Pergola

Maintain simple PVC Pergola

Let's focus on vinyl scaffolding. If you choose vinyl products, there is no need to worry about maintenance or deterioration. Vinyl scaffolding does not break, flake, shatter, warp, rot, discolour. Unlike the wooden product, they are not susceptible to termites and other wood borer insects and do not require annual dyeing or regular maintenance. In addition, they will not be treated with harmful chemicals, making them safe for your home and environment.

Pergola Installation (reference)

1. Carrying Beam Installation, 6 X 6 or 8 x 8 Timber Post

a. Measure the centre to centre distance of the timber posts which will support the Carrying Beams. Mark this distance on the bottom of the Carrying Beam so the ends of the beam will extend an equal distance beyond the supporting posts.

b. Center a Perpose Cap and a Beam-to-Post Bracket at the locations determined in Step 1a.

c. Drill 1/8” pilot holes at the locations shown in Figure 1a. The quantity and location of the holes are determined by the width of the Carrying Beam.

d. Mount the Perpose Caps and Beam to Post Brackets to the Carrying Beam with the prescribed number of 1/4" X 2-1/2” long hex head self-tapping stainless steel screws.

Carrying Beam Installation, 6 X 6 or 8 x 8 Timber Post

e. On the centerline of the bottom of the beam, measure 2 inches from the inside of the edges of the Perpost Caps and mark the locations.

f. Drill a 1.00” Diameter hole through the PVC at the two locations created in Step 1e. Be careful not to drill through the aluminium reinforcement. Insert Drain Plugs provided at these locations.

g. Repeat with the other Carrying Beam(s).

h. Place the completed Carrying Beam assembly on top of the corresponding timber posts.

pilot holes at the locations shown

i. Drill 1/8” pilot holes through the five holes on each side of the Beam to Post Bracket.

j. Mount the Carrying Beam assembly to the timber post with the 1/4" X 2-1/2” long hex head stainless steel screws as shown.

k. Repeat these steps and mount the other end of the Carrying Beam(s).

2. Rafter Installation

a. Once both Carrying Beans are installed, set one Rafter in place and center it so that each tail end extends equally past the Carrying Beams.

b. Mark the underside of the Rafter at the inside and outside of the Carrying Beam at each end. These marks may be visible after Rafters are installed, so use light pencil or other removable marking.

c. Remove Rafter and turn upside down.

d. Align all remaining Rafters next to the marked Rafter, and transfer lines across to all. This step assumes the Carrying Beams are parallel. If this is not the case, please modify accordingly.


e. Center a Rafter bracket between the marked lines with the center holes countersink up and the bracket extending out past the sides of the Rafter. The bracket used as well as the location and quantity of mounting holes is determined by the width of the Rafter. See Figure 2a. Note that the cribed lines on the opposite side of the bracket are used to center the bracket across the Rafter.

f. With the brackets centered between the marked lines and across the Rafter, drill 1/8” pilot holes through the mounting holes into the Rafter.

g. Attach the bracket to the Rafter using the 1/4" X 2” long flat head self tapping stainless steel screws.

h. Repeat steps e-g for all Rafter brackets.

i. On the bottom of each Rafter, approximately 1/2” from the inside edge of each bracket, drill a 1/8” drain hole through the PVC. Be careful not to drill through the aluminum reinforcement.

j. Measure center to center of the timber posts and divide this measurement by the number of rafter spaces (you should have one more Rafter than the number of spaces). This is the center line spacing to set each Rafter.

Attach the bracket to the Rafter

k. Mark both Carrying Beams with center line measurements for all the Rafters to confirm spacing before installation.

l. Place Rafters on Carrying Beams and center on marks.

m. Drill 1/8” pilot holes and attach Rafter brackets to Carrying Beams using 1/4" X 2” long flat head self tapping stainless steel screws.

3. Purlin or Lath Installation

a. Once all Rafters are installed, measure the distance between the outside edges of the outer two Rafters.

b. Determine the amount of overhang desired for your application. Typical Purlin overhang would be 8” to 12” on each end, and Lath overhang would be 6” to 8”.


Add twice the overhang desired to the measured distance. This is the overall Purlin or Lath length.

c. Once all Purlin or Lath is sized, set one in place and center across Rafters with equal overhang at each end. Mark the under the side of the Purlin or Lath at the outside of the outer Rafter each end.

d. Remove Purlin or Lath and turn upside down.

e. Align all remaining Purlin or Lath next to the marked one, and transfer lines across to all. These marks may be visible after Purlin or Lath is installed, so use light pencil or other removable marking. This step assumes the Carrying Beams are parallel. If this is not the case, please modify accordingly.

f. Measure center to center of the Carrying Beams and divide this measurement by the number of Purlin or Lath spaces (you should have one more Purlin or Lath than the number of spaces). This is the center line spacing to set each Purlin or Lath.

g. Mark both end rafters with center line measurements for all the Purlin or Lath to confirm spacing before installation.

h. Place Purlin or Lath across Rafters and center to marks.

i. Purlin or Lath should be secured with a screw into the Rafter at each intersection along the two outside Rafters, and then every other Rafter for the remainder of the intersections. Insure that Purlin or Lath are straight along their entire length before securing with screws:

If using Purlin, drill 1/8” pilot holes through the top and bottom of the Purlin into the Rafter and secure with 4-1/2” stainless or coated screws.
If using Lath, secure with stainless #10-32 x 1-1/2” screws
