Our Favorite Inexpensive Pergolas

While some pergola builders say you can’t find a quality, handmade pergola for under $4,000, they don’t know The Backyard Showcase. These choices for inexpensive pergolas incorporate a less expensive material, a modest size, or a simpler design — however, they NEVER skimp on quality or beauty:

Small Vinyl Cozy Retreat Pergola

The backyard classic. The simple and elegant lattice looks gorgeous in the clean white vinyl. While vinyl is the most expensive pergola material, this pergola style still manages to keep a budget-friendly price tag due to its fairly modest size, its simple style, and the fact that it is attached to the house. This proves that inexpensive pergolas can come in every material. Vinyl is such a sought-after material for any outdoor piece due to its long lifespan and low maintenance needs.

General Rules for a Budget Project

One of the best aspects of buying a hand-built pergola is deciding on all of your custom options. Any style and any options you want, you can have. Since we’re all about affordable pergola kits that stick to your budget, we’re breaking down the best choices that make for an inexpensive pergola.

  • Pick Pressure-Treated Lumber — The material you choose determines a lot about the final cost of the pergola. While affordable pergolas can come in many different types of material — even vinyl — if budget is your main concern, you’ll want to stick with pressure-treated lumber.
  • Smaller Sizes — Smaller sizes mean less material used and less money spent. A modest-sized pergola can still enhance your backyard décor without draining your bank account. If you know you’re working within a limited budget, we recommend choosing a smaller area of your porch, patio, or yard to cover with a pergola.
  • Keep It Attached — Another way to limit the material costs — and the price — is to have the pergola be attached to your home rather than free-standing. By having the pergola attached directly to your house, you eliminate the need for 2 of the posts, yet you still enjoy the complete shade and style of a pergola.
  • When in Doubt, Just Ask — When you’re working with The Backyard Showcase to create your custom pergola, we’re your team. If you have any questions about what something will cost, just ask!
