This pergola roof kit utilizes 2x6 rafter brackets so you can attach a series of 2x6 rafters above the 6x6 beams (creating a second roof "layer" to give the pergola's roof a more traditional look). The 2x6 rafter slats can (but don't necessarily have to) extend beyond the edge of the beams below them, creating overhangs on each end.

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 2x6 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.

Span¹ Spacing² # of 6x6s # of Brackets
4 feet Far (24.5") 1 2
4 feet Medium (16.0") 2 4
4 feet Close (12.0") 3 6
6 feet Far (24.5") 2 4
6 feet Medium (18.0") 3 6
6 feet Close (12.0") 5
8 feet Far (24.5") 3
8 feet Medium (16.0") 5
8 feet Close (12.0") 7
10 feet Far (24.5") 4
10 feet Medium (17.5") 6
10 feet Close (12.0") 9
12 feet Far (24.0") 5
12 feet Medium (18.0") 7
12 feet Close (12.0") 11

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 2x6 to the center point of the next 2x6 (not the amount of space between the 2x6s).

Other Roof Kits for Pergolas with a 6x6 Frame

  • 2x6 inline rafters roof kit - 2x6 slats are inserted between the beams (inline & flush) rather than above the beams

  • Angled shade purlins roof kit - 2x6 slats are inserted between the beams (inline) but are installed at a 45-degree angle (or another angle) to maximize shade

  • 6x6 inline rafters kit - 6x6s (square posts) are inserted between the beams (inline & flush) rather than above the beams

First off, your site is really well-organized and made it really easy for me to find the perfect kit without investing hours trying to figure out what all brackets I need. And the kit itself is not notch... really high quality brackets plus SS screws and screw head covers. THe drill bits was a nice touch too. COuldn't be more pleased with how our purgola turned out. Thanks guys!

Love the angled slats

I'm so glad I found your site. Your metal brackets aere so versatile. We installed the roof rafters at about a 70% angle rather than 45% as the pcitures on your site. The pergola looks amazing and provides soooo much shade thanks to the angled slats.

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.

THe compliments just keep coming :-)

Very easy to put together and very good quality. We've had several friends & family over for bbqs and little get-togethers and everyones commented about how great our patio looks with this pergola. Very pleased. Thx!!
