Custom Pergola Cost and Installation
The cost of having a pergola installed varies almost as much as the materials and designs they come in. Depending on the size and materials used, pergola installations cost between $1,500 to $10,000. To give you a better idea of what to expect, national averages show that a 10-foot square solid cedar wooden pergola, professionally installed, costs around $3,500. Aluminum and vinyl pergolas fall into the lower end of the spectrum while custom teak and fiberglass models will be the most costly.
Modern technology has created a new material that has quickly gained favor in pergola construction: Alumawood®. It provides the durability and longevity of aluminum while mimicking the classic, elegant look of wood. On average, pergolas built with Alumawood® cost around $1,500 for a 10-foot square addition, ranging between $10 and $20 per square foot. This makes building a pergola a worthwhile investment.
