Overview

This pergola roof kit utilizes 2x4 rafter brackets so you can attach a series of 2x4 rafters above the 4x4 beams (creating a second roof "layer" to give the pergola's roof a more traditional look). The 2x4 rafter slats can (but don't necessarily have to) extend beyond the edge of the beams below them, creating overhangs on each end.

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

  • 2x4 inline rafters roof kit - 2x4 slats are inserted between the beams (inline & flush) rather than above the beams

  • 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 kit - 4x4s (square posts) are inserted between the beams (inline & flush) rather than above the beams


Wood Not Included

Wood is a) very expensive to ship and b) readily available to most people at local home improvement and building supply stores. By buying your wood locally, you also have more options on the exact type of wood you'd like that is appropriate for your area's climate.

These angle braces were really heavy duty - much more-so than I expected. Also, the braces arrived very quickly. Great service

4x4 mount brackets very well made and finished
I would highly recommend this product.
The one suggestion I have to make them superior change the screws from Phillips to torx

This kit is perfect for building a pergola type structure. All the joints are tight and straight. On shipment the box containing the rafter supports broke open in the ups truck and scattered all over the truck. I had to refuse shipment on that box. Customer service contacted me and had a replacement box shipped with in a day that they were notified of the problem. Recommend both the product as well as their customer service.
