Oak Pergola FAQ
How can I get trade prices if I’m not a builder?

For over 11 years, we have proudly manufactured top-quality oak frames for builders, developers, and small regional oak framing companies. A few years ago, a builder asked us to make him a double garage for his own property. Once the frame was delivered and our fitting team put it up, he told us that years before, he had bought another oak frame, a garden room, from a large retail facing oak frame company – it had cost him and arm and a leg. When they came to site, he was disappointed to discover the company relied heavily on subcontractors for groundworks, frame installation, and roofing. So, he said to us, “you guys have the same offering as the retail company but at a fraction of the price, I just need to sort my own groundworks and tiling”. So, we started offering our products to self-builders. We don’t have the overheads of sales people on commission, or in-house project managers, and we are still happy to be busy at trade margins. It’s a win-win!

Do I need planning permission for an oak pergola?

Often not. Particularly if you are locating it over 2m from a boundary. However, the need for planning permission depends on various factors, such as the size and location of the oak pergola. We can guide you through the planning permission process and provide advice specific to your project.

Do you offer a planning service?

Yes. Once we advise on whether you need planning, we work with a nation-wide strategic partner to offer a price match guarantee on the planning application service itself.

Can you provide customisation options for my oak pergola?

Absolutely! We understand that every self-builder has unique requirements and preferences. Our team of experts specialises in creating bespoke oak pergolas tailored to your specific needs. We offer a wide range of customisation options, including size, section sizes, and style. We will work closely with you to bring your vision to life and deliver an oak pergola that matches your exact specifications.

Do I have to pay up front?

We understand your concerns about upfront payments and the security of your investment. Our payment terms are designed to offer peace of mind and protect your interests. We typically require a deposit to initiate the project, with the remaining balance payable just prior to delivery and if we are fitting, balance is due on completion.

Do you offer any guarantees on the project?

Of course. We offer a manufacturer’s warranty that’s really simple, if any component has an issue that makes it unfit for purpose structurally, we replace it with no quibbles. We pride ourselves on our reputation and word of mouth is a critical part of our success. We don’t leave our customers out to dry when it comes to customer service.

Can you provide visual representations of the final product?

Yes, we understand the importance of visualising the final result. We can provide detailed renderings, 3D models even augmented reality to help you visualise your oak pergola before construction begins. These visual representations will assist you in making informed decisions and ensure that the final product meets your expectations.

How can I get in touch with your team to discuss my specific needs?

We are here to assist you with any inquiries or to discuss your specific needs. Ideally, just fill in the form above, then you can browse our product range. You can also reach our sales team by phone at 01580 880344 or by email at inbox@tradeoak.com We are available to schedule a consultation at your convenience and help you take the first steps toward building your dream oak pergola.

What about delivery and installation?

One of the primary benefits of choosing our oak framed pergola kits is how quickly and easily they can be assembled. We offer free delivery of your kit to many locations and make sure all components are unloaded in a safe and responsible manner. Each kit comes with detailed instructions regarding assembly that make it possible for a talented DIYer or virtually any building contractor to install the pergola in a single day. We can install your new pergola for you too.

What are the maintenance requirements of my new pergola?

Once installed your green oak pergola from Trade Oak will require little in the way of maintenance. When you do perform maintenance it will likely be more for aesthetic reasons than practical ones. By that we mean you will probably want to clean accumulated dirt and debris off your pergola from time to time, but you will not have to do anything to maintain the timber itself.

Versatility Incarnate

As we mentioned in our opening, one of the many great things about our green oak pergola kits is their versatility. Whether you want to use it to create a focal point on your residential or commercial property, to provide cover and context for an outdoor kitchen, to frame your patio or even to create a high-end carport the oak pergola is a multifunctional feature that can be adapted to virtually any outdoor environment.

 

Crafted from Durable Green Oak

Green oak – sometimes referred to as “uncured” or “fresh” oak – is a type of oak that, after harvesting, is not subjected to any type of drying process such as kiln drying. Green oak has a high moisture content, often as high as 30%, which makes it stronger and more durable than kiln-dried oak. And because it was not subjected to an expensive drying process it is typically more affordable.

At Trade Oak we use only sustainably grown and harvested French green oak which is known for its:

  • Strength & durability: As we mentioned, due to its high moisture content green oak is stronger and more durable than kiln-dried oak.
  • Aesthetic appeal: Green oak has a lovely rustic quality about it with its natural grain patterning and colour on full display.
  • Easy workability: In its natural state green oak is easy to work with and can be cut and shaped in such a way as to create timeless architectural features as well as intricate, durable joints.
  • Insect resistance: The tannins in green oak provide natural resistance to insect damage, which further enhances the long-term durability of the wood.

 

Features and Benefits of Oak Pergolas

The features that make green oak a superior building material are inherited by the pergola. A pergola built from a Trade Oak kit will be extremely durable, have a natural resistance to rot, stand up to the worst elements of the UK environment and exude a sense of timeless sophistication. As a bit of icing on the pergola cake, our oak frame pergola kits are also low maintenance.

Oak framed pergolas from Trade Oak provide a host of benefits both aesthetic and practical including:

 

  • Beauty: Whether you use it to provide shade around the pool, or to provide a platform for wisteria, morning glory or ivy your oak pergola will imbue your property with timeless appeal.
  • Shade: If you wish the roof can be covered in vining plants or a roofing material of your choosing to create a shaded area underneath as well as shelter in the event of rain showers.
  • Enhanced property value: A stunning oak pergola from Trade Oak will give your property an immediate boost in valuation that may offset most or all of the cost of acquiring it.
  • Permanence: When you see one of these beautiful architectural features in place you get an unmistakable sense of permanence.

 

 

Choosing a 1, 2 or 3 Bay Pergola

Our green oak pergolas are available in 1, 2 or 3-bay configurations that will accommodate just about any landscaping goal you are trying to achieve. A 1-bay pergola is an ideal complement to your patio or can be used as a transitional element connecting different aspects of your landscape. A 2-bay pergola will provide a distinctive covering for your outdoor kitchen. While a 3-bay pergola can be used to cover a path between the pool and the house or a detached garage and the main house. These are just some of the things to keep in mind when choosing a pergola kit from Trade Oak.

 

Building a Bespoke Oak Framed Pergola

A bespoke oak frame pergola from Trade Oak is a great way to extend your home into the garden, thereby unifying the different elements of your property both visually and functionally in a way they never have been before. But let’s say you want the timber of your pergola to be fashioned in such a way that it echoes the architectural elements of the house to create a high degree of visual harmony. We can do that too.
