A quality, durable alternative to a temporary structure!
TREATED SOUTHERN YELLOW PINE
Known as one of the strongest, most versatile species of exterior wood available. Treated lumber remains a staple in the outdoor building industry
Pressure treated protection against, rot, decay and insect bites.
Unlike wet lumber purchased at home centers, the lumber used for our outdoor structures is kiln-dried before and after treatment to minimize cracking, warping and twisting. This will also readily accept stains and sealers soon after construction.
Treated southern yellow pine is plentifully grown in the southern US, making access and availability widespread meaning it is competitively priced.
WESTERN RED CEDAR
Beauty is in both sight and scent with its rich tonal properties and natural luster. Red cedar is renowned to architects and home owners around the world.
Natural resistance to decay, moisture and insect damage has made red cedar a premier material for both interior and exterior applications. Properly finished western red cedar can last for decades in even the harshest of environments.
Fine, straight gains and uniform texture helps lumber to lie flat, stay straight and hold fasteners tightly.
Wood is the world's only renewable building material and western red cedar is sourced from one of the most sustainability managed forests in the world. With the majority coming from the Pacific Northwest of the USA.

- holes are dug to below frost level, then pre-made concrete footer pads are placed at the bottom of each hole. The posts are then placed on top of the footer pads and the dirt is tamped back into place. This option is recommended for dirt areas, loose paver patios or any other areas that do not have a solid-weight bearing surface.

U shaped metal brackets are fastened to the concrete or deck with anchor screws, then the posts are placed inside the brackets and secured through the sides of the brackets with screws. For areas without a solid surface to mount them onto (a loose paver patio, dirt or grass area, etc) it is recommended to have holes dug below frost level and have the posts installed into the ground. Or concrete pilings can be poured to grade level and the posts can be mounted on top of the pilings with the above mentioned U brackets. The brackets are hidden

Most people are concerned about the wind because many people have bought cheap aluminum and canopy covers for a couple hundred dollars and have ended up replacing them multiple times due to winds tearing them up every year. We are very confident that our pavilions will withstand most wind storms when anchored down properly. In fact, we have lots of display
models that are not even anchored down in any way.
Absolutely! Even though we have a price list with standard sizes listed, each one is considered custom and can be sized to fit.
We have the capability to obtain most any brand of shingle and often times there is no additional charge for it. We do not stock shingles, but order them as needed. Most companies charge a couple hundred dollars to match a shingle color.
The pavilion is prepared in a kit form at our manufacturing shop, then is loaded onto a trailer and delivered to your house via a four wheel drive pickup truck. Pieces can be hand carried to the site, therefore accessibility is usually not a problem. Long distance shipping can be arranged via common carrier.
Most pavilions are installed in less than a day (sometimes ½ day). Usually no more than 2 days.
Gutters can be mounted onto the pavilion to divert the water, or depending on the application, the pavilion roof can be raised so the water can drain into an existing gutter on the house.
Although cedar and pressure-treated pine are very durable for exterior use, it is recommended to apply a coat of exterior sealer approx every 2 years to enhance the appearance and help provide protection from the elements. Most any home improvement center carry products that are suitable to use, and by explaining to them what kind of wood you have, they should be able to help you make a decision. If left unstained, cedar and pressure-treated pine will weather to a silverish gray color.
