Our pergolas are designed for simple self-installation, just like IKEA flat packs! If you can do that, you can do this!

Our step-by-step assembly guide (included in the box) makes setup a breeze, allowing anyone to install them without prior experience. With just you and a friend, a few tools, some concentration and no corners cut, assembly typically takes 3-5 hours, depending on the pergola size.
