Design Your Pergola
Sunset Pergolas provide the perfect combination of beauty, quality and affordability. Manufactured in our factory right here in the USA and backed by a limited lifetime warranty, our high-quality vinyl and aluminum pergola kits are built to order. Using the interactive design tool here on this page, you can build a custom pergola perfectly suited to your lifestyle, space and preferences (shade, color, style and more). We'll manufacture it within about a week and ship it right to your doorstep (shipping is included FREE with all pergola kits). Your pergola kit will arrive with step-by-step, fully illustrated, easy-to-follow assembly instructions and should take you no more than a day or weekend to set up (saving you hundreds of dollars). And caring for your pergola couldn't be easier, thanks to the rust-proof aluminum frame and the virtually maintenance-free vinyl exterior. Few investments will bring you as much enjoyment OR raise the value of your home like a beautiful pergola from Sunset Pergola Kits.
Do you want a pergola that attaches to your home (or another structure) on one side OR a freestanding (stand-alone) pergola?
Select the width and depth dimensions for your pergola.
Please select the width (W) and depth (D) dimensions for your attached pergola. Please note that width and depth are NOT interchangeable. The pergola attaches to your home (or other structure) on the width side, and the shade purlins run the width of the pergola. Please review the image below to see the location of the home/structure, the placement of the posts and the direction that the shade purlins run.
Attached pergolas up to 20' wide have 2 posts: one in each corner of the side that is not attached. Attached pergolas ranging from 24' to 32' wide have 3 posts: one in each corner plus one in the center of the unattached side. Click here to see simple CAD drawings for each width-depth combination.
Please select the width (W) and depth (D) dimensions for your freestanding pergola. Please note that width and depth are NOT interchangeable. The shade purlins run the width of the pergola. Please review the image below to see the placement of the posts and the direction that the shade purlins run.
Freestanding pergolas up to 20' wide have 4 posts: one in each corner. Freestanding pergolas ranging from 24' to 32' wide have 6 posts: one in each corner plus one in the center on each side (on the width side). Click here to see simple CAD drawings for each width-depth combination.

How much shade do you want your pergola to provide?
Select the width (5", 7" or 10"), shape (square or round) and style (with or without trim ring) for your posts.
Four out of the five post types have a trim ring (only the 5" square post on the far left does not). The trim ring is at the very top of the post where the post connects to the beam. Notice how the 5" square post that does NOT include the trim ring actually goes into the beam (rather than the beam resting on top of the post). All five post options are perfectly secure and strong. It is simply a matter of aesthetics and which post design you prefer.
Our vinyl pergola kits come in white and tan. You can't go wrong with either!
Would you like any built-in fan mounts? Your pergola can include up to 3 fan mounts (fans not included). Each fan mount will add $60 (white) to $70 (tan) to the cost.
How many fan mounts would you like?
Do you live in an area that can have winds in excess of 80 MPH? If so, we recommend adding high-wind brackets. (Click here for more information.)
Our pergola kits are built to withstand typical weather conditions in most regions of the United States. Unless you live in an area that can experience winds of 80+ MPH, you shouldn't need high-wind brackets. But if you live in an area that may have winds in excess of 80 MPH, we recommend adding high-wind brackets so that your pergola kit is warranted against potential wind damage. Click here to learn more about our limited lifetime warranty.
The cost for high-wind brackets is dependent on the width of your pergola and whether you've selected an attached or freestanding pergola. The following table outlines the cost for high-wind brackets:
|12 - 14 Feet||~$170||~$300|
|16 - 20 Feet||~$210||~$400|
Include high-wind brackets?
