I can't quite tell but I assume you used the louver design on the top. I haven't seen the double beam together like that before. If the pergola end caps go on the outside it may be a detail that customers complain about (gap/not straight) when they are side by side.
You don't need building permits for pergolas but a 20' span might be a little much. 2-3' of snow and then it rains is what I worry about.
47k ended up @ 49k good memory. Louvered design.
I'm not worried about it we were up on it walking around

I wish my neighbours would give me projects like that.
So, you router/punch the louvers yourself?

Yes, for everything,

gonna make aluminum rail this year

My 1st all composite w/materials I am using now was 5 years ago, than we did a lot of 1/2 & 1/2 composite floor w/cedar rails, cause that's what we marketed the company for as time has gone on we slowly started doing more and more, prices went up didn't have to do as many for that 2mil mark, move on up to now it is all we get calls for.

Every time u sell a deck and finish it some one other than the customer sees what you have done. Soon enough you get calls for the decks you set your company up for. Takes about 5 years. Can't sell everything to every body might as well take what works best for you.

Seeing as how the span is and all. A sag would be hard to fix.

Relax. Nothing will happen. Too strong and way too lite to sag. Its not PT.

Everything reacts to weather changes City. It's not how it looks after you get paid.

If it holds up good cheer to Steve. If not repair will be costly.

Gees Jon if it fails I can put 2 posts in the middle of the 20 ft span, that might cost $100. I drive by it every day and can see it from my dining room.

There is nothing compared to the negativity always presented here.

Nothing I will get into as it will only start another pissing match.

Unless of course some one else on this site has developed, designed, and manufactured anything that closely resembles what I have presented here.

I asked the same question and Killer said he was using the louver design that he sent photos in previous thread. His photos - not mine.
I can buy a hollow aluminum extrusion for inserts on vinyl pergolas and the wall thickness is .080". The ones I have seen the louver is 1"x3" vinyl but it looks like Killer uses a larger extrusion sometimes. I can buy these pre-routered in lengths up to 16' that are 2"x6" rafters that sit on 2"x8" beams. The aluminum comes in lengths up to 24' as Killer stated.
