Let’s explore these gazebo cost factors!Cost by Gazebo Size
The first question you’ll need to answer when deciding on a gazebo is the size. Gazebos can be constructed in countless sizes, but naturally it all depends on the available space for your property.
Below is a range of prices by gazebo size:
The varying range of pricing is due to the numerous shapes and materials that can be used for construction.Cost by Gazebo Shape
There are three main gazebo shapes available on the market: square/rectangular, hexagonal, and octagonal. The cost of each shape varies depending on the size and complexity of the design.
The roof is one of the most important aspects of a gazebo. Not only does it protect you from the sun and rain, but it also adds to the aesthetic appeal of the structure. There are several different types of roofing materials available for gazebos, each with their own cost:
The cost of a gazebo will be largely influenced by the material used in construction. The most common gazebo materials are wood and vinyl. Both have their strengths and choosing which is best for you depends mainly on the style you want and your budget.
Vinyl Gazebos: 10×10 gazebo = $8,700–$11,000
Cedar Gazebos: 10×10 gazebo = $7,400–$8,800
As you can see, cedar gazebos cost can be significantly more than vinyl gazebos. But why?
Cedar is a premium wood – it’s more durable and has a higher resistance to rot and decay than other woods. It’s also a more aesthetically pleasing type of wood material, which is why it’s used in high-end furniture and other outdoor structures.
These days, vinyl has the durability and strength to withstand the elements as well as most wood structures. But the biggest advantage of a vinyl gazebo is that it requires little maintenance. You won’t have to worry about painting or staining it to keep it looking new – all you need is water, a little soap, and a rag.
So, if you’re looking for a luxury gazebo that will last, a cedar gazebo is a good investment. However, if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly, low-maintenance option – and durable enough to last for decades – a vinyl gazebo is also a great choice!Additional Features & Gazebo Costs
