Overview

This pergola roof kit utilizes 2x4 insert brackets so you can insert a series of 2x4 slats between the 4x4 beams on either side of the pergola. The brackets are open at the top so the 2x4 wood slats can be inserted from above after you've secured the brackets to the existing beams. The end result is a series of roof rafters that are inline and "flush" with the beams.

Bracket Features

  • 14-gauge steel (approximately 2 mm thick)
  • Laser-cut, bent and welded
  • Advanced weather coating technology to withstand extreme weather conditions
  • Pre-drilled holes for securing wood and accessories to bracket
  • Includes 1.5" pan (round) #12 self-tapping stainless steel wood screws (with accompanying hinged, black screw caps) for securing wood into bracket
  • Backed by a 5-year warranty
  • Wood not included

Span, Spacing & Brackets

The following table shows how many 2x4 rafter brackets are included (together with stainless steel screws & black screw covers) based on the span (4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 feet) and spacing option (far, medium or close spacing) you choose.

¹ Span is the distance from outside edge to outside edge (including brackets) of the side of the pergola where the roof brackets will be attached.

² Spacing is approximate and denotes "on-center" spacing - i.e. the distance between the center point of one 2x4 to the center point of the next 2x4 (not the amount of space between the 2x4s).

Other Roof Kits for Pergolas with a 4x4 Frame

  • Traditional roof rafters kit - 2x4 roof rafters are attached above the beams (rather than inline with the beams) and can extend beyond the end of the beams to create overhangs

  • Angled shade purlins roof kit - 2x4 slats are inserted between the beams (inline) but are installed at a 45-degree angle (or another angle) to maximize shade

  • 4x4 inline rafters roof kit - 4x4 posts (rather than 2x4 slats) are inserted between the beams (inline)

Wish I would have gone with the 6x6 size

The brackets are really nice and the assembled purgola looks great. But with the purgola being as big as it is (24x20), the 4x4 posts look a little smaller than I hoped they would. It's still solid as a rock, but I kind of regret not paying a little more and getting the 6x6 size.

Very nice kit

My husband and I were super impressed with the quality of the brackets. Very heavyduty steel with an attractive black finish. We opted for the flush/inline roof style as we like the more modern contained look w/o overhangs. It turned out beatifully. And roof brackets made putting on the roof really easy.

Sturdy & Secure

I live in Arizona and just finished assembling my pergola. It looks absolutely fantastic with the desert landscape and black metal brackets. As you can imagine, the summers get quite hot around here so I added a privacy wall for extra protection. I'm excited to use it once Spring and Summer comes along. The pergola that I built is about 10x10 and stands alone from the house. It is solid as can be. The only part I was concerned with was attaching it to the concrete foundation but I found a youtube video and it was as simple as can be. Can't thank you guys enough. This thing looks amazing!
