I'm so pleased with the finished result that I couldn’t resist sending you a picture of my recent pergola project.
As a family we love to spend time outside, so we thought it would be great to have a decked area with some shelter that didn’t cut out the light. My pergola was inspired by the one in your brochure, with the same shaped ends etc. but it was a bespoke design I had made by Jackson's Fencing, using 6 x 6 inch posts and 2 x 6 inch rails coming off at a 10 degree angle from the house.
This heavier design was appropriate to hold the seven sheets of toughened glass with special self cleaning coating that makes a perfect roof that keeps us sheltered, but doesn’t really affect the light.
We are delighted with it and the quality of the timber is typical of Jacksons, I can’t see the point in making something beautiful like this unless you use quality materials like yours, we want to be enjoying it in many years to come, not worrying that it’s going to rot and fall down!
Thank you Jacksons Fencing,
Chris Marsh, Folkestone.
