Pergola

Hi  I would like some advice on what timber sizes and type of timber to use to erect a 3m x 3m Pergola with a flat Colorbond roof.

 

Cheers

Re: Pergola

Welcome to the Workshop community @Franks. I'd be please to assist with your question.

 

The type of timber needs to be suitable for exterior use. I can advise H3 treated LOSP primed pine for the project if using metal stirrups cemented into the ground. This timber is ready to be painted.

 

 

 

Here's a D.I.Y. step-by-step tutorial on How to build a pergola which I trust you'll find helpful for your project.

 

If you need further advice or information on these products, please let me know.

Re: Pergola

Hi @Franks.

 

The spacing of rafters at 600mm is quite common. The spacing is variable a depends on your preference, but it is visually most pleasing if you keep the spacing consistent.
