    five stars

    by T. MILLER of Parma, Ohio on 06/17/12

    Fiberglass 12x18. This is just what we expected. The material is dense and the structure is solid when assembled. Setup went smooth and was surprisingly easy, although it took us a fair amount of getting up and down the step ladder. The one thing we did have to do was pour footings 2x2s. Going in we thought these would be difficult but in hindsight was easy. For the holes in the footings I didn't have a 5/8ths drill bit and tried a metric size. I can tell you now use 5/8ths. Get all the dust out of the drilled hole. On the vertical posts, only finger tighten the top nut at first,this makes the install easier. You will only need two people for the in stall in fact other than the footings, my fiancee and I did everything on our own. The rafters and columns are light for their strength and easy to lift. Just make sure you have a decent cordless screwdriver.

    Delivery was spot on. We live in an odd area and give special instructions to the freight company but everything went off without a hitch.

    To the entire Pergolausa team, thank you. From the selection process to drawings to the install tips. You were there. We will be sending pics tomorrow when the weather clears.

    Paula followed up with us after delivery and again after installation to check on everything. Nice touch. Thank you again.

    quality workmanship

    by MAssociates of chicago, IL on 05/22/12

    Very nice piece.

    compliments to the carpenter

    straightforward assembly.

    all hardware and connect points were clearly labeled. almost didn't even need the manual once we understood the labeling

    .anchoring hardware came custom made and fit snugly

    Overhangs could be larger.

    if you appreciate fine wood its hard to see have you could go wrong with one of these

    Delivery and Assembly Comments:

    Product arrived in two weeks from the day we ordered. I would have liked the 18 foot side without the need for a post support in the middle to open it up abit

    We almost reasearched ourselves into paralysis but glad we did the legwork. The craftsmanship on this model really shines through. The surfaces are smoothly sanded- We can smell the cedar. Went with the standarrd height rather than something taller for a cozier feeling. One thing I wish is that it could provide more shade as the sun moves down. so we will adda shade of some sort.

    We have used ours on chilly days/nights.My parents love reading under it or just relaxing. My dad is taking his afternoon naps. We are new to the sunbelt and want to spend time outdoors so this fits.

    It went up on a Saturday with nary a worry I am told.

    Five stars!

    by SIGRID of Long Beach on 04/16/14

    We purchased a 12 by 16 cedar based on all of our research. We have had it up for three weeks now and have had occasion to use it twice for a BBQ and a christening. Both were just dreamy owing partly to the weather but also due to the pergola and the ambiance.

    The parisian blind walls block the stiff breezes that kick up here. We are also impressed with the stability, the unit doesn’t so much as move. Next to the house the wood looked lighter so we ended up applying a stain - testing a small piece first.Now looks like the bees knees.

    Delivery and Assembly Comments:

    Paula was our advisor. She was helpful and there to guide us and answer questions. Permitting was a bear, but we got through it. We did the install ourselves very nicely if I say so myself :-)

    custom patio cover

    by Aurelio R. of Florida on 05/27/14

    *Custom size Santa Ana with different height columns to account for our patio step.
    *Fred provided the drawings. Well worth the time
    * We love the look and feel of the material finely grained rather than glossy.
    **The color matches the sample we provided.
    *Beautiful ascent to the property We have had it up for two weeks now.
    Only one to complain is our curmudgeon neighbor and everybody from my parents to my friends to the kids is always sitting under it.
    ***Our dog Sheeba has not moved from under it since we installed it

    Delivery and Assembly Comments:

    Our contractor had mismeasured but when you told him to simply move the columns before setting he was sooo relieved (me too). That was worth its weight in gold.

    10x16 deck pergola

    By melonwarrior of Sugar Land, TX on 07/11/14

    We love our new deck pergola !! It has given us back our yard. With the new bushes it is truly a makeover and has transformed the atmosphere. The red brown metal shake looks perfect.

    Delivery and Assembly Comments:

    Went up like a dream. Took us the weekend and a case of beer and was a blast. Gracias!

    14x14 Del Mar

    by Pollster of San Jose on 03/29/15

    We are very, very satisfied with our new pergola. The redwood is simply gorgeous. The color, the finish…the pictures on the site don’t do it justice. The sealant is not glossy in fact it is unnoticable. Very nice. Came with the 15 year warranty - solid stuff.

    Delivery and Assembly Comments:

    Oscar was a gem..his team set it up in 3 hours. In an out in a morning.

    Five STARS

    by WBBY of Carollton, TX on 04/03/15

    Hi Fred, and thank you. The Garden View 12x12 exceeded our expecations, and they were high! It looks great in our yard (pics attached).

    Thank you for insisting on review of the drawings. The adjustments were needed. We fit it onto our deck just right with no room to spare. An inch more on the cross measure would have been trouble. The latice roof provides more than enough shade for us, actually can be too much, so my husband affixed them to a frame he crafted that allows us to easily remove them.

    Delivery and Assembly Comments:

    The larger timbers were heavy. Certainly won’t be a problem for two able men. But if you are slight of build best to have someone else do the unpacking and maneuvering.

    This pergola is very good quality. SOlid value.

    by S. Rodriguez of McAllen, Texas on 03/17/15

    It took my Dad and me a full day to assemble our unit. There was no guesswork or cutting – all the hardware and notches fit together smoothly as advertised. Very satisfied with the quality and the price.

    Delivery and Assembly Comments:

    I suggest buyers follow their tracking number and do not miss your notification call from the delivery company. I got a new phone so when our order arrived the shipping company could not get in contact with us and charged us $120 for two days storage bit of a bummer. The bags that the hardware comes in ruptured during transit and we could not locate a some of the rafter screws so I had to make some trips to the ACEhardware.
