6" PVC Pergola Rafter - The true size is 1 ½" x 5 ½" in various lengths. Our rafters do not require painting as we make them by folding and laminating four panels of ¾" PVC. All four sides of the rafters end up perfectly smooth with no open pours where dirt may build up.PVC is the ideal weather resistant material for Pergola Rafters. The draw back is that PVC is not rigid and tends to sag over time. For this reason, our PVC rafters over eight feet long are made with a ¾" reinforced fibreglass rod laminated inside. Fibreglass rods are similar to steel rebar that is used to reinforce concrete in high rise buildings and bridges. We have not conducted engineering tests for load bearing capacities, but are extremely confident that the rods that are made to hold thousands of tons of concrete will comfortably keep our PVC Pergola rafters from sagging under the weight of other rafters.Made from CertainTeed or Versatex cellular PVC that can be cut, shaped, fastened and finished using standard carpentry tools. Weather resistant, with no warping. Does not require painting for protection, but easily accepts paint to suit your color pallet.
Available Options:Choose either a smooth or wood textured finish.May be ordered with either both or just one end profiled, and cut down to any length.You may choose from any of our Rafter Tail Profile Cuts like Spartan, Napa, Craftsman, or Custom.Additional Reinforcement can be added in order for Rafters to be used as a Header or Rafter Support. Note that in traditional Pergolas, two rafters are paired up for rafter support and this is not necessary.Rafters can be made any size, contact us for a quote.
