Is this post just for fences, or can it bear weight for a pergola like a standard 4x4 post?

Answer: 
It should be able to bear weight for a pergola. You just will have to make sure you have enough posts for the width and length. If you make a 10x10 pergola or even a 12x12 pergola, you can get away with fours posts, If you make it bigger, you will need more posts. Pergola posts do NOT need to be sunk into the ground. You can purchase sonotube, place in ground 2-3 feet (yes, do check local codes; it also Read More
It should be able to bear weight for a pergola. You just will have to make sure you have enough posts for the width and length. If you make a 10x10 pergola or even a 12x12 pergola, you can get away with fours posts, If you make it bigger, you will need more posts. Pergola posts do NOT need to be sunk into the ground. You can purchase sonotube, place in ground 2-3 feet (yes, do check local codes; it also depends whether the pergola is freestanding or attached to your primary or other structure) add concrete and place a galvanized anchor (simpson strongtie makes 5/8 x 24" anchors), then a simpson strongtie bracket-comes with washer, 5/8 galvanized nut. If you are placing on existing concrete, instead of the 5/8 x 24" anchor, use 5/8 galvanized all-thread rod and simpson strongtie expoxy, 5/8 galvanized nut. drill hole in concrete (depending on depth of slab, do NOT drill all the way through the slab), add epoxy and all thread rod, then place simpson strongtie bracket. You will need to either nail or screw pergola post to bracket. Go to their website and/or call. everything is there in detail for any type of fastening application, with videos and step-by-step written (english and spanish) instructions. I called them 4 times and received absolutely helpful answers to my questions everytime. We are installing 2 carports and 9 pergolas. We are using sonotube on for the ones erected on existing concrete to make concrete 'boots' for our pergolas to elevate them to the level of the existing patio cover (which is starting to deteriorate badly), so they will clear our tall windows. We are also covering the walkways with 4x14 pergolas, which are a different height and there is a 6.5" step down from the patio to the walkway on the living room side of the house (we are located on a hill). The concrete boots will be different heights so that all six pergolas around the side and along the backpatio are the same height at the top and will appear to be (almost) seamless. In addition to make the concrete boots look less concrety and give everything a more finished look, we are coloring with quikrete cement color. once our project is complete, I will post photos Read Less

Answer: 
While this post may support the weight of the pergola - depending on how large the pergola is, its design and how many posts support it - It is, most likely, not tall enough. Many localities have building codes which consider pergolas to be structures. These codes most likely will dictate how deep the support posts must be sunk into the ground and how high off the ground the pergolas must be to prevent Read More

Many localities have building codes which consider pergolas to be structures. These codes most likely will dictate how deep the support posts must be sunk into the ground and how high off the ground the pergolas must be to prevent people from bumping their heads. I urge you to check with your local building department to check the codes and to determine if you need a permit to build it. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes like regular 4x4 you could build anything 4x4 are usually used for. These are stained and have groves etched in on all 4 sides looks decorative and I believe helps prevent twisting and warping. They are working very well as fence posts cemented 3ft in the ground.

Answer: 
They're solid, but they're not cedar.
They're another western softwood: most likely spruce, pine, or fir.

Answer: 
No. It's not real cedar. (Cedar requires no pressure treatment because it's naturally decay-resistant.) When the manufacturer doesn't reveal the species, that usually means it depends on what western softwood is available. In other words, it's probably "spruce-pine-fir."

Answer: 
Possibly. There are 2 types of wood stains, semi-transparent and opaque or solid color. If you are considering an opaque or solid color stain, there shouldn't be a problem. If you are planning on using a semi-transparent stain, your degree of success will depend on how dark the stain you plan to use is. If it is dark enough, then little if any of the original cedar-tone stain should show through. The Read More

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good posts I read reviews on these posts before buying I was a bit leery. I was worried about wetness as another reviewer stated and twisting and spiting once in the ground. However the posts came palatalized and wrapped very nicely I had to unwrap them and inspect and to also load in my trailer. Mine were all very nice and dry and stain even. So the manufacturer must have heard the complaints and corrected the problem or I just got lucky. However if you get bad ones refuse delivery and force them to send you good ones. I know its a hassle to have to come back but at least you will get what pay for that way. June 9, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not all that great So out of the 24 posts we purchased, so far, in 60 days since install, 8 have warped, cracked or twisted. Unfortunately, 2 of the twisted posts were gate posts. We had already set the post in the middle of an existing concrete slab. We had to rehang the gate so it would close. They looked fine before we installed them or we would of never of used them. Recommend a different company or product. April 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice post Uneven stain , but nice milling.. Some were also still a wet, and they are supposed to be kiln dried after treatment.. October 26, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad deal They came still moist. We built the fence a month ago and every single post has developed several large cracks running up and down the sides. Some are bad enough that I wonder if the post will split in half over time. Last thing I want to do is pull out posts and concrete of a finished fence. Not happy with the quality of the wood. April 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wood Fence Posts Good quality, good price, should be kept in stock at every home depot. July 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Average Little warped , but manageable for use I needed. Over the 9 ft span it had 3/8 " "twist" . I needed 2" sections so not that big of a deal on the twist. January 15, 2014
