How Much Does a Pergola Cost in 2023?

How Much Does a Pergola Cost in 2023?

How much might you pay for a pergola this year? Let’s calculate.

If you’re looking for a cozy outdoor space to customize and make your own, a pergola might be right for you. That said, it’s important to know how much a pergola will cost, especially these days with inflation hitting hard and prices in constant flux. 

Here’s the short of it: you’ll probably pay between $2,100 and $6,000 for a professional to install your pergola. On average, you can expect to pay $4,000, but that price can climb all the way up to $11,000. There are many factors (size, features, location) that can impact how much a pergola will cost, but perhaps the most influential factor is what material you choose. Let’s take a closer look.


Perhaps the most popular pergolas out there, wood pergolas are loved because of their natural appearance that can complement just about any kind of home or outdoor setting. As classic as wood may be, there are even more decisions once one settles on installing a wood pergola as there are different kinds of wood out there. If you’re looking to save money, pine and cedar are generally much more affordable. That said, redwood and teak are popular choices as well, tend to cost more, and have a longer lifespan.


If you want something affordable to install and affordable to maintain, look no further than a vinyl pergola. Vinyl pergolas tend to cost around $20 per square foot. Vinyl doesn’t rot like wood will, however, it could be vulnerable to damage from snow or debris that builds up on its roof. Even so, we are confident in the quality of our vinyl pergolas, which is why we fabricate and install them in this material.


If you want something that’s sturdy like wood but won’t get damaged from exposure to the elements, consider using aluminum. Some people don’t love the look of a metal pergola, but they’re similarly priced to aluminum and are also affordable and low-maintenance. Aluminum is fairly customizable, so you can create the look you want. 


Fiberglass can be quite costly, coming in at around $60 per square foot. They also don’t match more rustic design schemes very well either. But if a fiberglass pergola suits your property and you want to spend on it, you’ll be rewarded with one of the strongest options out there.
