Step-by-Step Guide on How to Put a Slope on a Flat Pergola in Egypt
Putting a slope on a flat pergola can be a daunting task, but with the right supplies and instructions, you can easily do it yourself. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you out.
Step 1: Measure the Area
The first step in putting a slope on your flat pergola is to measure the area. Make sure you measure the length and width of the pergola, as well as the height of the posts. This will help you determine how much slope you need to put on the pergola.
Step 2: Set the Posts
Once you have the measurements, you can begin to set the posts. Use the post hole digger to dig holes for the posts. Make sure the holes are wide enough for the posts to fit in and that the posts are at the correct height. Once you have the posts set, you can secure them with timber screws.
Step 3: Add the Slope
Now that the posts are in place, you can begin to add the slope. Start by measuring the distance from the posts to the ground. Use the level and the circular saw to cut 2x4s to the desired length. Place the 2x4s in the postholes and secure them with timber screws.
Step 4: Add the Concrete
Once the 2x4s are in place, you can add the concrete to the postholes. Fill the postholes with gravel and then pour in the concrete. Make sure to level the concrete and use the trowel to smooth it out. Allow the concrete to dry for at least 24 hours before moving on to the next step.
Step 5: Add the Joists
Once the concrete has dried, you can begin to add the joists. Measure the distance between the posts and cut the joists to the desired size. Place the joists in the postholes and secure them with timber screws.
Step 6: Add the Slats
Once the joists are in place, you can begin to add the slats. Measure the distance between the joists and cut the slats to the desired size. Place the slats on the joists and secure them with screws.
Step 7: Add the Finishing Touches
Finally, you can add the finishing touches to your slope pergola. Use the chalk line to mark the perimeter of the pergola and then use the power drill to secure the slats in place. This will give your pergola a polished and cohesive appearance.
Step 8: Enjoy Your New Slope Pergola
Once you’ve completed all the steps, you can sit back and enjoy your newly transformed slope pergola. It not only adds a unique architectural element to your outdoor space but also provides shade and shelter from the sun, making it perfect for relaxing or entertaining in the Egyptian climate.
