Corten Steel Any Size Double Pergola Kit for 6x6 Wood Posts

Customize to the size of your space with the 6x6 Any Size DIY Double Pergola Kit. The Corten Steel brackets will constantly change in colour over time when exposed to the elements.

 

PLEASE READ
Due to the natural and intended rusting process of the Corten Steel, when wet, the brackets will drip and cause rust colour staining to the wood and surrounding area. 

Corten steel, over time, will patina. The rusted appearance of Corten serves as a protective coating and changes in colour over time due to exposure to the elements, revealing its unique beauty. Results will vary by location, time, and other environmental factors. 

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR COASTAL AREAS
Saltwater prevents the protective layer from forming; we do not recommend using Corten in Coastal areas.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THE USE PRESSURE TREATED LUMBER WITH CORTEN STEEL
Pressure-treated lumber (PT) uses chemicals to protect the wood and these chemicals can affect the steel.

DO NOT SAND CORTEN
Do not sand or otherwise affect the protective layer’s natural progression and its process to patina.

Toja Tip: Ensure lumber is fully inserted into the bracket cavity, resting on metal tabs for proper installation.

    Shipping wood is costly. Most of the population has access to stores that sell wood locally where they live. Buying your lumber allows you the freedom to select the type of wood you want to use for your build and budget. There are also regional limitations for what kind of lumber is ideal for your build; different species of lumber would be used in tropical climate vs. a cold one.
  • Anchoring Hardware
    Due to different building materials and requirements based on location, we advise on checking building codes and talking to your local hardware store for the best securing hardware for your specific surface.
