Pergola Installation

Our team of Dallas pergola builders are experts at minimizing the impact of a construction project taking place in your backyard and will be in and out within 1-2 weeks. The pergola installation process is simple and we work closely with you every step of the way.

  • Initial Consultation: We start with a free estimate where one of our pergola builders visits your home to speak to you about the project and see the outdoor space for your pergola. The specialist will discussing your vision for the pergola, including its purpose, style, and any specific features you want. Then they’ll assess the space, take measurements, and make notes of any unique landscape features that might influence the design.
  • Custom Design: Our designer will then create a custom pergola design and work with you to select materials and finishes that complement your home’s exterior. Other features you may want, such as lighting, walls, roofing, etc. are modeled in your rendering so you can visualize the final outcome before construction begins.
  • Site Preparation: We prepare to install your pergola by clearing the build site and leveling the ground where we’ll be installing the pergola. We will level the soil and add gravel as needed for stability and any other preparations which are necessary before we can begin construction.
  • Professional Installation: Our build team arrives to perform your pergola installation, meticulously setting the posts to ensure they are perfectly aligned and secure. They then attach beams and crossbars, ensuring each connection is reinforced for added durability. Finally lighting and other features are installed to complete construction.
  • Quality Checks: Throughout the installation process, we perform multiple quality checks to guarantee that the construction adheres to our high standards and all structural requirements. This includes checking the alignment and integrity of all components.
  • Final Walk-through: Once the installation is complete, we conduct a final walk-through with you to ensure the pergola meets your expectations and that you are completely satisfied. We also provide maintenance tips and answer any questions you might have about caring for your new pergola.

Pergola installations typically take about a week, once the build team begins construction, but the entire process end-to-end takes several weeks because of design, engineering, and permitting requirements.

“What a great experience overall. They transformed our outdoor space. Matt and his team were great. They made sure we were completely satisfied before taking the final payment. He has also been around to answer a few follow-up questions and add some details to our outdoor kitchen after completion. Highly recommend!”

“We called Clark Outdoor Designs and Bailey came out to give us an estimate. Did some research and looked at some of his teams work and knew they were going to be the ones for the job. Two days and they were done. Such attention to detail and the finished product is amazing. Only wish I would have chosen them for the fence as well.”

“We had a good experience with Clark Outdoor Designs. They provided computer images of what the final result would look like – we have worked with several larger contractors and no one has ever provided renderings like that so it made a difference in our choice. He was patient in answering our questions and re-working the estimate until we landed on exactly what we wanted.”
