Building Materials

Whether you are looking for something cost-effective or luxurious, building a pergola can be achieved through the use of wood, aluminum, vinyl and concrete. If you desire more professional results though deck materials such as composite lumber and Trex may be suitable alternatives. With so many options available to choose from it’s easy to find the right material that fits your budget and desired style.


Budgeting is key when constructing a pergola, allowing you to reap the benefits of your structure without breaking the bank. Your spending plan will decide what materials are used, how big it should be and where it should be situated. A freestanding pergola usually costs more than other types because they need to be built as self-sufficient constructions from ground level up. With the addition of a pergola to your home, you can transform an outdoor area into something special! However, it’s important for the structure to meet all local building standards in order to protect not only the structural integrity and aesthetic of your residence but also neighboring landscape. All these elements will come together when exploring budget options for installing a pergola on or near your house.
