Pergolas add a dramatic design feature to any outdoor living space, creating comfortable and beautiful seating, dining and entertaining spaces. Small pergolas are great for enhancing the design and layout of any backyard, while large pergolas make a statement and can showcase ornate lattice roofing. Pergolas can provide attractive, shaded areas for many uses, and can add to the value of your home. Whether your ideal pergola is square or rectangular, modern or traditional, metal or wood, the design possibilities are endless.

Wood Pergolas & Pavilions
High-quality pergolas or pavilions made from natural wood are a classic and stylish addition for outdoor entertaining. A free-standing pergola or garden arbor, or a patio structure that’s attached to the exterior of your home, provides elegance and shade with an open, lattice or mesh roof. A pavilion is a larger, more complex wood structure that provides more protection from the elements with a solid roof, often covered with traditional roof shingles. Depending on your needs for dining and entertainment, a wood pavilion or large pergola may be the perfect choice.
Adding a metal pergola to your yard provides shade and shelter while still allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors. With a variety of lattice roof options, the style of your metal pergola is up to you. Metal pergolas are made with high-quality, durable steel and aluminum parts. These low-maintenance materials are weather resistant, providing ideal outdoor spaces for everything from backyard pool areas to quaint dining spots.
To make a statement on a smaller scale, consider adding a trellis or garden arbor arch to your yard. With an open structure like a pergola, these smaller outdoor features can also provide beauty, shade, and even support for climbing plants. Pair your new garden arbor with a bench to provide a cozy seating area, or install your arbor with a gate to create an elegant entrance to your yard or garden. With a variety of designs available in both wood and metal garden arbors, you’re sure to find the perfect addition to your outdoor living space.

Preparing for Installation
When coordinating your pergola installation appointment, be ready to answer some important questions. For instance:
- Are you interested in a wood or metal pergola?
- Is your pergola simply a cosmetic upgrade for your yard, or will it serve as a functional patio cover?
- Where do you want the new outdoor structure built?
- Do you want the new pergola built on an existing slab or deck?
- Do any homeowners’ association restrictions apply to your project?
- Are wires, sprinkler systems or gas lines buried near the job site?
Pergolas create a bright, inviting ambiance for your home. Your pergola will add more living space to your home outdoors while still helping you avoid direct heat. A pergola can attach directly to the house for a beautiful patio area, or serve as an elegant addition to a pool.
While sunrooms can act as a true extension of your home, they don’t provide outdoor living space the way pergolas do. Sunrooms provide more protection from the elements, like a typical living space, and are more integrated with the construction of your home. Pergolas can be installed attached to your house or freestanding in your yard and are open to the outdoors. Pergolas often have dramatic structural designs, which make for distinct and beautiful outdoor lounge areas. Finally, installing a pergola will typically cost less than adding a sunroom.
Our local service providers install quality pergolas by Lawn Master, TEMO and Southern Outback Structures.
You may need a permit to install a pergola, depending on your location. If a permit is required by your municipality, your Home Depot installation professional will obtain the permit and handle any inspections.
A detailed estimate will be provided during your free in-home consultation. Our price includes materials and labor for pergola construction, as well as any permit fees.
