Our Process

Needs Assessment

It all starts with a phone call, during which we listen and learn about your project. After gathering some basic details (eg. size, options, attachments, etc.,  we then provide a rough cost estimate. If the cost is within an acceptable range, we schedule a home visit.

During the home visit we will inspect the site, gather more details, learn how you want to utilize the space, explain all your options and answer any of your questions. We will then offer some preliminary design ideas to make sure we are on the right track.

 

Our expert sales/design team members works closely with each client to make sure we’re meeting, and exceeding expectations

Design

Next, we'll take all the information we collected in the Need Assessment stage, and we will turn your vision into the design of your dreams and then share it with you as 3D illustrations or renderings, along with a detailed budget for the project. 

If you don't love the first design, we'll collaborate with you to make revisions until it is perfect.

Engineering Review

All StruXure pergolas are pre-engineered to meet rigorous standards so as to handle just about everything nature can throw at it, from heavy snow loads to hurricane force winds.

If your project requires a permit, we will have it reviewed by a licensed engineer, and once approved, the plans will be stamped and ready to submit for a permit.

Permitting

If a permit is desired/required, we can handle the complete permit application process, including securing the stamped plans, filling out all the necessary forms, submitting the application, and managing any questions that the planning/building department might have.

Material Production

Once we submit the order to the factory, your materials are custom-made to the exact specifications of your design, using a state-of-the-art aluminum extrusion processThis process assures the strength required to support longer spans.  Every piece is then precision cut to the exact dimensions to avoid any possibility of mistakes during installation. Once cut to size, each component is then provided a top-of-the-line powder coat finish to ensure a long lasting and easily cleaned surface.

Lastly, The custom cut components are carefully shrink-wrapped and crated for safe transport, along with all the hardware and electronics required to complete the installation.
