The Bordeaux is created by molding premium, hi-grade polymers around traditional structural elements to create the classic look of wood without the traditional maintenance. In other words, you get the classic look of wood without the headaches. Just the occasional rinse with a garden hose is all you need to do to keep your pergola looking great year after year and we back this up with an industry-first lifetime warranty. The Bordeaux Pergola requires a drill, level, ladder, measuring tape, and two people to assemble. For installation on a wood deck or concrete patio, use our hassle-free Bolt Down Bracket System (purchase separately). For an in-ground installation, you can extend the posts with pressure treated lumber wood inserts purchased from your local hardware store. Our detailed instructions give you all the information you need to install and mount your pergola.
