Redwood decks, Patio Covers, and Pergolas are a beautiful addition to any landscape. Prolific Home Solutions, Inc. builds covered patios, Lattice covers, combination patio covers, and Freestanding structures to suit your needs.

Patio covers & Pergolas can be built as Freestanding or attached to your home, on a deck, concrete patio, or with concrete footings. Heavy beam and post construction ensure long term stability.

We can install kits you purchase or design & build custom structures to suit.

Cost of a Decks, Patio Covers, & Pergolas

There are many deck, patio cover, and pergola designs and construction techniques. Due to many possible configurations and the fluctuating cost of redwood and your specific design, there really aren't any "standard" estimates. We can however tell you the standard deck less than 30” off the ground and approximately 10’x10’ with footings usually costs in the $5,500-6,500k range. A nice 10' x10' Redwood pergola can also cost around $5,500-6,500k

Deck Construction Costs

A new deck can add value to your home and increase your living space without the expense of adding a room. The average homeowner spends about $7,600 to build a 200-500 square foot deck, with smaller decks costing as low as $3,500. The cost of your project will depend on factors like size, building materials, and extras to enhance functionality. This chart shows averages.

Cost of a DIY Pergola vs using a professional

Because pergolas are often built over existing decks or other fixtures such as hot tubs, some homeowners choose to tackle the project on their own. Many retail hardware stores now offer DIY pergola kits in standard sizes, for example 10 feet by 10 feet. Expect to pay around $1,500 for a 10-by-10 vinyl pergola kit, and closer to $2,000 for a 12-foot-by-12-foot model.

Attempting a DIY installation requires at least two people with some degree of handyman skill, along with tools like drills, ladders, a level and measuring tape. To safely install a pergola, you'll also need some pressure-treated wood or concrete to act as a stable base, and if you're assembling the unit on an existing deck, you'll want bolt-down brackets.

If you choose to design and build your own pergola, you'll need to purchase posts, boards, screws and all additional hardware needed. On average, a from-the-ground-up DIY job will cost $3,500 for a cost-effective cedar pergola.

Hiring Prolific Home Solutions, Inc. to install a pergola

Your other option is to hire a professional. This is a good idea if you want a custom pergola design, such as one with curves or multiple levels. If you want to install lighting, a stereo system or any other kind of electronics, don't attempt to DIY.

Hiring us can also save you time. Properly constructing and leveling any structure requires patience and experience. For a basic 10-by-10 pergola using long-lasting redwood, expect to pay $5,500 - $6,500, which isn't that much more than a DIY job, considering we only use high-end redwood, not cedar or vinyl.
