Building a Pergola for Your Garage Door

If you’re looking for a weekend project that can spruce up the look of your home’s exterior, then installing a garage door pergola may provide you with an answer. Watch this video to learn how to tackle this DIY project that can do a lot to dress up your garage door in Wyckoff.

Plan to build the pergola on a workbench, and to then install it on brackets that you attach to your garage door’s casing. Start by measuring the door while including the casing in its width, and plan to extend the rafters about a foot past the brackets on either side.

After cutting, sanding, assembling, and painting your pergola, you can move on to the brackets. After drilling your pilot holes, run caulk along the back of the bracket and press it to the garage door’s casing. Then, fasten the bracket in place with deck screws.
