Attaching to Wall or Ledger Board

Wall attachment

Wall Attachment

Popular on 2 story homes or homes on the gable end wall, wall hanger attaches directly to your siding, Pergola Lattice covers do need a ledger board in most cases.

  • Benefits:
    1. Strongest Installation.
    2. More Rafter or Pan Clear Span than fascia or roof top attachments (no roof top attachment in high snow areas).
    3. Costs less money than Freestanding.
  • Drawback: Patio Covers height may be too low on Homes with a short wall and a low roof overhang; that is typically found on many track homes that are built on slab and if that is the case for you a fascia or roof top application may be your alternative.

Patio Cover Installation

Fascia attachment

Patio Covers are Lag Bolted directly to the wall with a C-Channel Hanger that the roof panels fit into and are secured to the Hanger top and bottom with Sheet Metal Screws (SMS). The Hanger is bolted directly through wood siding, stucco, or hardie plank siding into conventional wood framed wall with 2" x studs. The Hanger can also be directly attached to Concrete, Cement Block Wall or a Brick Wall with special Masonry Anchors. A ledger board is not necessary for solid roof patio covers, installation is easier without the ledger board and it's one less thing you have to purchase.

Pergola Lattice Installation

Roof top attachment
  • Arbor Lattice Covers require a 2" x 8” Douglas Fir Ledger Board to be Lag Bolted to the wall studs and then our 2" x 6" Inside Hanger Brackets are installed on the Ledger Board that the Rafters slide over the top to hide the hanger and are attached with Tek screws. The Ledger Board is required because most walls are built with the studs spaced 16" on center and the Arbor Lattice Rafters are generally spaced 24" on center however rafters can be spaced 24", 20", 16" or 12" on center, the rafter spacing is determined by your job’s design requirements
