How much does a wooden pergola cost and how long will it pergola last? 

Considering a wooden pergola is built with quality timber, the initial cost should be between Rs. 1500 – Rs. 2500 per square foot and will last between 5-7 years in tropical weather conditions. Besides the initial investment in quality timber, the recurring expenses of maintaining the wooden pergola are the cost that should also be factored in when choosing wood as an alternate pergola material. Repeated maintenance every 4-6 months by sanding, sealing, painting and anti-termite treatment to maintain the wood is an extremely costly affair and should be considered while making a choice os material to build garden pergolas, terrace pergolas and poolside pergolas. Alternatively, while the initial set up cost of a WPC pergola is on par with a wooden pergola, there is absolutely no maintenance cost after installation.
