Additional Information

Not Included in this Kit

Wood - Lumber 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.

Anchoring Hardware - While this pergola kit does include stainless steel wood screws for securing 4x4" wood posts into the brackets, it does not include anchoring hardware for securing the base brackets into a secure base (i.e. cement pad, deck, landscape toppers, concrete footing, etc.). This is because the anchoring hardware you need will vary based on a) what type of material you're going into and b) local building codes.

Required Lumber & Estimated Cost

As noted above, wood (lumber) is NOT included in this pergola bracket kit, nor is the hardware you'll need to anchor the base brackets. Before you can build your pergola, you'll need to purchase the following items from a local building supply store or lumber yard (assuming you plan to build a 24' x 12' pergola that is 8' tall):

  • Six (6) 8' long 4x4 posts
  • Seven (7) 12' long 4x4 posts
  • Sixty-two (62) 12' long 2x4 slats
  • Anchoring hardware (24 pieces)

Together with the cost of this Zen Pergolas bracket kit, the estimated total all-in cost for your pergola is $3094. This is only an estimate; actual costs will vary depending on your location, the type of wood you decide to buy, local stores & availability, and various other factors.

This pergola kit will accommodate any wood shade structure ranging from 13-24 feet by 4-12 feet. The pergola does not need to be exactly 24' x 12' like in the images on this page.

The kit includes 44 2x4 rafter brackets so you can add 22 traditional roof rafters atop the beams of the pergola (11 rafters over each of the two roof sections, both a 12' span with close spacing between rafters). It also includes 80 2x4 insert brackets so you can add two privacy walls with 20 slats each (both 8' tall with close spacing between slats). If desired, you could reduce the number of slats on the privacy walls and use some of the insert brackets to add a side railing or another full/partial privacy wall. You can also purchase additional 2x4 insert brackets here.

13x10 attached to house kit

Brackets are NOT an exact fit, I had to spend so much time cutting down the 4x4 posts for the brackets to slide in, it was a headache. But overall, WHEN it is completed, it does look great, and it is definitely very durable and can withstand harsh conditions. Communication with the staff was prompt and they shipped quickly.

I'm sorry to hear that you had to spend extra time cutting down the 4x4 posts. Typically, if the wood is dry and straight a standard 4x4 post will slide right into the brackets with no extra work of any kind. Glad to hear that you are happy with the products in the end.

Well Made.

Well made product and works well holding 6x6 posts in place. The only thing I would recommend would be holes in bottom for drainage.

Hey Brian, thank you for the great review and thank you for the feedback. We've received this feedback from others in the past and it's something that we're working on implementing right now. Within a month or so all base brackets will include a hole in the base for drainage.
