Has anyone built a pergola on a wooden deck ?
I have built lots of Pergolas and Colonnade's but never on a wooden deck. Don't do too much deck work here in AZ. In fact I have built the only two decks I have ever seen here in AZ.
I guess I've been involved with one or two, but never built one myself... What do you need to know?
Josh - Here is one we did like 8 years ago. What is your specific question?
Chris , did you carrige bolg the posts to the deck joists or to the decking boards ?
We pulled up deck boards and bolted directly through joists or beams.
I'm not Chris but I did work for several years as a journeyman carpenter. If I were building one on a deck I would have some metal strapping to the joists at the very least. I would prefer to see the posts set in concrete below the deck and the decking worked around the posts.
