A gazebo is a beautiful addition that can provide shelter from inclement weather in addition to acting as a decorative element to your property. If you would like your gazebo to fulfill both of these requirements, you'll need to install screens and make sure the finished product has functioning doors. Interior benches are also a popular choice for gazebos that act as outdoor living rooms rather than just lawn ornaments. If you choose to build a gazebo on your property, it is not recommended that you attempt it as a do-it-yourself project. You'll most likely want to hire a gazebo contractor.

Costs can vary based on size and material. A nine-foot wooden gazebo, for example, will cost within the range of $1,500 and $2,500. If you'd prefer a vinyl structure, the cost will be approximately $2,100 to $3,600. The benefits to spending more for a vinyl gazebo are mostly due to the durability of vinyl. Metal gazebos can be made from affordable aluminum or durable steel, which is more expensive. Other costs can factor in as well. If you're looking to put in screens for a closed, functional gazebo, make a note that you'll be spending more for additional materials and labor. For the gazebo's piers or as a continuous slab foundation, you'll need to shell out about $75 for one cubic yard of concrete. Bear in mind that some leveling of your property might also be necessary. Make sure your contractor includes the flooring cost in the final price to avoid an unwelcome surprise.

Above all, hire a licensed contractor that you trust. A contractor will inform you of all the options available and help you design a structure according to your vision and needs. Your contractor will likely charge you between $30 and $40 per hour, or $35 to $70 per square foot. You will be charged more if you ask for a customized shape rather than the standard octagon, hexagon, square or oval. You'll also have a different price point depending on the roofing material you choose. These are typically architectural shingles, asphalt shingles, slate, wood shakes or tile.

Overall, expect to spend anywhere from $5,000 to $11,000 for a new gazebo, depending on your choices of materials, embellishments and size.
