How cheap can you build a pergola?
The cost of a pergola is defined by the material and design of the structure. Considering the different materials like steel, wood, stone and WPC pergolas, the initial investment cost ranges between Rs. 500 – Rs. 2500 per sft. This again is defined by the quality of wood and other materials used. Lower the cost, lower the material quality and therefore lower the lifetime of the pergola structure. Also the build and robustness of the structure plays a large part in the set-up cost. Built out of the cheapest wood a pergola can be set up as low as Rs. 500 per sqft, but the life will be in the 2 year range.
