Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to common pergola installation questions
What is a pergola?
A pergola is an outdoor structure - made of wood, metal, or other material - with columns supporting a roofing grid that provide shade and partial protection for an outdoor living space. Often added as an extension to pre-existing homes, pergolas make great stylistic additions to a patio or back porch.
What are the main differences between sunrooms and pergolas?
While sunrooms can act as a true extension of your home, they don't provide the same outdoor living space feel as pergolas do. Pergolas can be installed attached to your house, or freestanding somewhere else in the backyard. Sunrooms provide more protection from the elements, but due to their structural design, pergolas make for beautiful outdoor lounge areas in the spring, summer, and fall. Finally, installing a pergola will typically cost less than adding a sunroom.
Do I need to obtain any building permits?
No. All permits required by your municipality will be acquired by your Home Depot professional.
What's included in the estimate?
When we provide you with an estimate during the FREE in-home consultation, our price includes materials, pergola construction and any permit fees.
Do I need to be present during installation?
You, or an adult over the age of 18 with the authority to make decisions, must be present at the start of the pergola installation process to review the project plans with the installation crew. It is also important to be present at the completion of the install so that you may complete the quality review checklist and review any maintenance requirements of your newly-installed pergola.
Installing a Pergola
When you call to set up a pergola installation appointment, make sure you're ready to answer the following questions:
Style & Material
Are you interested in a cedar or a extended metal pergola?
Location of Structure
Where do you want the new outdoor structure built? Do you want the new pergola built on an existing slab or deck?
HOA Rules & Regulations
What does your homeowners’ association allow?
Are any wires, sprinkler systems or gas lines buried near the job site?
How do you plan to utilize the pergola? Is it merely a cosmetic upgrade for the backyard, or will it be used as a patio cover where dining and entertainment occur?
Outdoor Pergola Design Ideas
Pergolas allow you to observe the beauty and wonder of the outdoors while enjoying the comforts and privacy of the indoors. Small pergolas are great for adding to the design and layout of a backyard, while large pergolas can act as a stylish patio cover. Pergolas also provide additional, outdoor living space for dining, relaxation or entertainment and add to the value of your home. Whether you're looking for a square or rectangle pergola, one with a canopy or just a roofing grid, the design possibilities are endless!
