Build a Timber Pergola
This Handy Hint relates to "How to build a Timber Pergola".

For best results, all Radiata timber should be No.1 grade. check with your Carters branch. As soon as the timber arrives on the site, it should be protected from the weather. Stack it at least 150mm off the ground ensuring it is level, straight and covered.

All fixings (bolts, nails, screws etc) should be galvanised to prevent unsightly rust stains.

After 6 months, tighten all bolts and screws to compensate for timber shrinkage.

When cutting or notching posts these faces must be coated with a preservative. Ask your branch for the appropriate product.
