    Optimal for your comfort and style, the optional side-screens are meticulously crafted from Textiline, a material renowned for its strength and aesthetic appeal. Composed of PVC-coated woven polyester non-stretch yarn, textiles are flame retardant, heat sealable, mildew resistant, and stable at varying temperatures.

    Instructions

    Discover the ease of assembly with our Pergolas, each accompanied by comprehensive instructions for straightforward self-fitting. Armed with basic DIY knowledge and the assistance of ideally two individuals, along with an array of tools, transforming your space is a breeze.

    The estimated build time varies for each model, ranging from 1 to 5 hours, ensuring a quick and efficient setup process. To safeguard your investment, we strongly recommend anchoring the Pergola securely to the ground before commencement. Please note that our warranty does not cover damage to a Pergola that has not been adequately anchored.

    If the prospect of self-assembly doesn't appeal to you, simply tick the box above to add professional installation to your order. For more information regarding installation and the pre-installation guide agreement, please click here.

    To ensure optimal functionality, a natural fall of 10mm is recommended for proper water drainage and correct screen fitting. Most patios likely meet this requirement based on building regulations. However, if your patio's level differs, our installation team can use packers under specific legs to ensure the gazebo's proper functionality. By opting for our installation service, you are consenting to our team using packers under footplates in such instances.

    Assembly instructions for your specific model are conveniently provided:

    Pre Install Guidance

    Prior to commencing groundworks or scheduling a pergola installation, kindly review our foundational guidance below to facilitate discussions with your landscaper or builder.

    It is imperative that the pergola is affixed to a robust surface, and beneath the finished surface, there must be a secure foundation, such as a concrete pad. This preparation should be completed before our installers arrive, as they do not provide groundwork. For assistance with this phase, a local tradesperson would be able to support you.

    To aid in the planning process, we offer a floor plan indicating where the floor plates of the pergola will be positioned based on your selected size and orientation. This floor plan is also accessible on the relevant product page on our website.

    We recommend concrete pads of approximately 40x40x40cm beneath any tiles. If you have decking, we suggest the same approach, or alternatively, incorporating extra structural joists below the decking. Finish your surface completely with tiles or decking so that, upon our installers' arrival, they can drill through the tile or deck and secure it into a robust foundation below.

    Choosing your pergola size before initiating any groundwork is advisable. However, if you have already laid the patio or deck, we recommend verifying the stability beneath the surface. Ensure it is secure enough, as Type 1 or sand would not be suitable. Composite decking without a solid foundation beneath would lack the necessary security, unless there are existing structural beams underneath where the footplates will be situated. In such cases, successful installation is feasible, provided all footplates rest on adequately wide structural beams for secure bolting.

    FAQ's

    The Alvaro pergola is our latest addition to the range, this model is an adaption of the Rota and is available as a 3.6x3m and 3.6x4m base model with available extension kits at 3m and 4m with sleek single legs at the connection points. It is infinitely extendable lengthways in metres from 3.6x3m (excluding 3.6x5m) making it perfect for garden projects needing flexibility, easily adaptable shade and shelter.

    Can I Build the Pergola Myself? 

    All models come with instructions and can be self-fitted with basic DIY knowledge, as well as ideally two more people to help, plus an array of tools. Estimated build time varies for each size model and can range from 1-5 hours. This does not affect the 5-year manufacturers’ warranty on the frame or the 2 year warranty on the sun & weather screens.

    Is the Pergola Roof Weatherproof? 

    When the louvres are fully closed, the roof is completely weatherproof in standard conditions. Rainwater runs from the roof louvres, into the guttering and then drains down internally, through the legs. During extreme weather conditions and severely heavy rain, there may be a slight leakage as excessive water cannot flow through the drainage quick enough and can spill over, just like guttering on a home or an external drain.

    Are the Pergolas wind & storm resistant? 

    Our models are semi-permanent structures, meaning they a secured to the surface and not below, this makes them very sturdy and durable, yet still with the ability to move, if required. Always keep the roof louvres slightly open during extreme weather conditions to allow the wind to pass through the structure.

    Can the Pergola be dismantled & reassembled? 

    Yes, this is possible.

    Does the Pergola Require Maintenance? 

    These models require very minimal maintenance. The frame can be washed with cleaning materials and also jet washed. The gutters can also be cleared with a jet wash.

    You can find our range of cleaning and maintenance products here.

    What’s the difference between the Rota & Maranza Pergolas? 

    The functionality is the same on both models. The key difference in models is the height. The Rota is 20cm taller, so it makes a great overhang above bifold doors. In addition, the Rota louvres open slightly different from the Maranza, venting fully vertical and towards the shorter length. With the exception of models with six legs (which have a roof system split in two), the Rota works on one roofing system so all louvres open in one movement, whereas dependent on the frame size of the Maranza, it has multiple roof sections, so one section could be closed and another open. The Maranza louvres open towards the longer length.

    What surface can the Pergola be installed on? 

    Our professional fitters can install and secure onto any flat, solid surface as long as the dimensions of the area are correct.

    My surface has a slope, can you install a Pergola on this? 

    Aluminium louvered roof pergolas work on the natural fall of your existing surface to allow the rain to drain meaning a slight fall is necessary. Please take care to ensure you have measured the area correctly and have a flat surface with a max of 1:80 fall (which, by building regulations your patio should already have). For anything more than this, we would need prior notification, as it means we would need to fit the pergola with packers. Our installers can adjust the legs to sit flat, using spacers up to 50mm; this does not affect your warranty. A 1:80 fall over a distance of 3410mm is 42mm. For best fitting of the deluxe screens a fall of 10mm is best suited to ensure smooth operation, please note that packers or adjustments may be required if the fall is beyond this.

    Can the Pergola be connected to our building? 

    The outside legs of the frame are always required and cannot be removed. However, we can place the footplates flush to the wall and add flashing to close the gap between the building and the top of the roof beam. This would then keep the structure watertight to your building. Please get in touch to enquire about this option.
