Hi I’m George Hirst, Owner of Average Joe’s Pergola Depot. I have been in the carpentry business for over 15 years doing everything from framing houses, to interior trim, cabinets and anything else you can think of that involves wood. If it involves cutting wood I’ve done it. After a long time in the industry I started a custom deck, fence and rail company called Surfside Woodworks in the Central Florida area. One day while building a custom pergola in an upscale neighborhood I was going about the normal routine of what it takes to build a custom pergola as I’ve done many times before, when the thought popped into my head:
“Hey, I could design easy to assemble pergola kits based on the pergolas that I custom build on a daily basis, that would be really easy for people to put together themselves.”
So I did some research online and found that I wasn’t the first one to think of this nifty idea. As I kept looking further and further into it I found that every website that sells pergola kits online were all marketed toward people with higher upscale homes. Most of the pergola kits were confusing to order, and there were not many options to choose from. They were way overpriced, and some of them didn’t even have a picture of the kit that you’re trying to order. So, that’s when I decided to start Average Joe’s Pergola Depot and build these same pergolas that I was building for mostly upscale homes, and make them available for the Average Joe at Average Joe prices. I wanted to see average people like myself being able to enjoy their backyard space just as people in the upscale neighborhoods whom I was mostly working for.
When you browse our site I’m sure you will find that we have pergola kits in many different styles and sizes to choose from. We always use either Western Red Rough Sawn Tight Knot Cedar or #1 Grade .40 ACQ Pressure treated pine lumber. (This is marine grade lumber which is a higher grade than what is normally found in your home improvement stores.) and we only use stainless steel hardware to prevent rotting. Every kit comes complete with all pre-cut, pre-drilled lumber that is pre-marked for easy assembly. They also include a set of step by step instructions to guide you through the assembly process. Two people can easily have most kits set up in four hours or less, with absolutely no construction knowledge whatsoever.
Beware of other online retailers that sell pergola kits that are mass produced in China with cheap lumber, coated zinc hardware, and steel plates that hold rafters together, and have complicated assembly instructions. The truth is that these types of kits just will not last. Here at pergoladepot.com we never use any inferior materials or building practices such as these. We take pride in the products that we produce and have taken every step to make certain that your pergola kit will be easy to install, and stand the test of time no matter which part of the country you live in.
Our kits were originally designed to be used in the Central Florida area where we have to deal with extreme weather situations all year round such as:
These elements can be detrimental to the life of the materials used on outdoor products. So as you can see we have good reason to be sure that our pergolas were strongly designed with quality materials that could stand up to these harsh elements.
So go ahead and browse our different designs. Feel free to shop around other websites.
