Engineering and Permits

  • Los Angeles pergola engineering
  • Los Angeles pergolas


At times, our projects may require some engineering in order to meet minimum safety and code requirements. Our engineering department will provide engineering solutions for any application which is acceptable within your jurisdiction. Furthermore, engineering will address such things as loads or loading, foundations, and connections. This applies to both standard models and customized projects


Most all areas throughout Los Angeles and Los Angeles County requires a building permit when constructing a patio cover or pergola. It’s in the interest of safety that we acquire these permits, not just because the local jurisdiction having authority makes it mandatory. When considering a Pergola here in Los Angeles keep in mind that permits will cost a few bucks more, so plan accordingly.

Nothing like other Los Angeles contractors

Our team of professionals are some of the best in this business. We (My wife and I) trained these guys with the help of the manufacturer on the very product you intend to purchase. Basically, they’re not a group of individuals who just started in construction a month ago. As a consumer you can rest assured that we are insured. Our insurance covers your building and your property. Not to mention, we unlike many other companies even carry workers compensation insurances. Basically, insurances are not a problem.

We care

Many say it but in contracting few provide it. I’m talking about empathy. Absolutely a word not used in the construction business but for us, its a word that guides each project. We want to make you happy and when we put ourselves in your shoes as a client, we can achieve just that.
