Please describe the project specifications
The homeowner in San Ramon, California requested a flat pergola with a right-side gutter to collect rainwater. After reviewing the project, our company could provide a product to solve the client's sun, glare, UV, and rain problems. The retractable pergola needed to be flat since the client’s overhang/eave prevented a pitched/angled installation. This can be seen in the pictures.
The homeowner chose RAL 8028 Terra Brown for the frame color and Cappuccino for the fabric color both of which were a nice blend with the type and color of their home. All hardware and components used for fabrication were 6063 aluminum and marine-grade stainless steel.
What is unique or complex about the project?
We simply wanted to provide a sanctuary where the homeowner, family, and friends could relax whether rain or shine! The installation was somewhat difficult as the rafters/beams had to be attached very close to the existing house overhang.
The homeowner expressed satisfaction with the salesperson, the quality of the product, and the final result.
