Yes! Anything over $750 that adds value to a home requires a permit. Although each city is different, we will help you to attain a permit for your structure by providing a drawing package that meets city guidelines. The package will show what the project is, where it will go on the home, and how it attaches to the foundation. From there, all the city has to do is inspect!
Believe it or not, these pergolas are maintenance free! They are built with extruded aluminum which has been tested and proven to withstand the elements and the trials of time. The material does not rust, fade, peel, crack or break down. Our products also come with a lifetime warranty. Our goal is to make products that last forever!
If the pergola is free standing, there is no preparation required. However, we do recommend attaching them to assure they do not get caught in a gust of wind. In attaching the pergola, you will need to clear a space for the piers. They will sit 42 inches in the ground.
