Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by coo2468 Venetian Pergola
We were absolutely thrilled with the pergola... firstly because it is very elegant and the addition of the arch made it look even grander.
We added an aluminum white fence on either side - you can add a privacy wall but the fence, just 3 ft high truly added again to the beauty of our pergola.
We looked at a lot of places for our pergola and we are very pleased with our purchase and we are pretty sure our neighbours are a little envious too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYFencer Good value
Installed this on my grandparent's deck and it is amazing how easy it is to install. Took only about 2 hours and all by myself for the most part. I cheated and bought the bolt down bracket system for installation. The structure is very sturdy and best of all, I don't have to worry about staining it every year or worry about rotting.

We had our pergola install by professionals, took 2 of them about 8 hours to put it together. Very Glad we went that route. You do have to buy 4X4 posts for the pergola as well as the privacy screen. you will also need 1 additional bolt down bracket. We are very happy with the pergola.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fixit5 A great addition to my Hot Tub once completed..
I love the looks and style. The basic pergola was well worth the price, The additional add-ons like the arch and privacy fence are a little overpriced. Not as much shade as I hoped for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Looks great, easy to setup, and sturdy.
Pergola looks great on my patio and provides decent shade. Very easy to setup... took my father-in-law and I one day (8 hours) to setup. I already had cement footers installed, so it probably would have taken a little longer than a day. My wife and I are extremely pleased with the pergola... it provides a nice little something extra to our patio. Definitely recommend it!
A couple warnings... 1) some of the screws are a little cheap and warp easy, but extra screws were included so you should have enough; 2) If you use the bolt-down bracket system, make sure to have extra concrete screws and a concrete drill bit... the screws that came with the system warped easy so they didn't work and the drill bit wasn't long enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Popanuge Fun project and a great addition to the yard.
I purchased this kit roughly 4 years ago. I needed a shady spot in the back yard to sit and protect me from the afternoon Georgia sun. I didn't want something temporary that would require me to take down in the event of a storm or take down every Winter.
A pergola fit the bill. This kit arrived in seven different boxes with what appeared to be about 300 screws. Despite this somewhat daunting first impression, the kit went together quite easily and it was actually a fun project.
I opted for the additional slat kit for the roof to provide additional shade and to provide additional soundness to the structure. I eventually planted two wisteria to cover over the top of the pergola for complete shade.
The major crosspieces are steel reinforced which I thought was a real nice touch.
There is nothing about this kit that I am disappointed with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dawng Beautiful Pergola
This pergola took my husband and father 2 days to complete. We poured a concrete floor and sank four posts for the foundation. This is one sturdy pergola. My father's only complaint was that the screws that were provided were not sharp enough to get through the thick vinyl without a pilot hole being drilled. This slowed them down a bit but it was definitely worth it. I also purchased the arch kit and I'm so glad that I did. It really compliments the pergola and I can't tell you how many compliments we have gotten from by passers in our neighborhood.

We purchased this pergola 3 weeks ago. We love it. It took about 2 days to build. it was easy, but please use the instructions that come with the pergola. Not the one you can download from the website. The instructions on the website have you using different size screws, if you do this you will not have enough.
