5 Things to Know Before You Buy a Pergola
  1. Our pergolas are only available in kits. Vita does not offer custom pergola sizing and design. However, many of our pergolas can be easily modified for custom dimensions by the homeowner. Please review the assembly guide for more details.
  2. Additional lumber and hardware are required. Materials are to be purchased separately from the hardware store and are required for proper installation. Please see the assembly guide or the ‘Extra Materials You Will Need” tab on the product page for more details.
  3. Additional shade options are available. If you’d like more shade for your pergola, you can purchase our Shade Slat Kit or Canvas Weave. We do not currently offer a side shade option.
  4. Pergola height is adjustable. If your pergola needs to be taller, our Pergola Extension Kit adds up to 24” in height. Conversely, if your pergola needs to be shortened, main column posts can be cut to desired height.
  5. Vita does not offer installation services. We recommend contacting a local fence & deck company. They often have experience and expertise with these types of installations.
