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.

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

  • 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
