Pergolas and garden rooms require individual fixing to the ground. This makes them stable, safe, and able to withstand even the greatest storm. See how we ensure that a structure is permanently fixed.
Stable like a rock
At the locations of the posts and other key elements of a pergola, the ground must be reinforced. Once you have approved the design, we will provide you with a simple detailed drawing according to which your local contractor, prior to assembly, must prepare the concrete footings. If you do not have a trusted specialist, we will take care of organising the process. We will then connect the entire structure to the feet by drilling into them and gluing in the fastening elements.
Hidden is more beautiful
Concrete footings provide a solid base that will strengthen the entire structure without making your garden less aesthetic. This is because they will be prepared either under the grass, the concrete slab on the terrace, or under the boards. We will also hide all the screws, bolts, and other connecting parts of the structure. Only thin frames of non-corrosive, weather-resistant surgical steel will be visible at the footings, which at the same time prevents moisture from the concrete and substrate from penetrating the wood.

In the case of cantilevered floating terraces made of wood, concrete, or composite, the structure will be fixed to a concrete footing placed under the terrace – obviously choosing a fixing that takes the appropriate distance into account.
From Z to A
Nowadays, it may happen that your terrace contractor does not have the materials or available dates. That’s no problem for us! All you need to do is have a concrete footing poured and we will install your garden house or wooden terrace roof a little higher so that, between the footing and the posts, you have room for the planned terrace.
