Installing a pergola is similar to other outdoor home improvement projects, so it’s highly recommended to investigate the regulatory requirements in your area as part of your initial planning phase. Do not wonder, “do I need a building permit for a pergola?” — find out for sure before you make a purchase to avoid headaches and additional costs later.

While exploring common requirements, Pergola Depot cannot offer legal advice. Building standards are in place to ensure proper construction materials and techniques are used. Planning permits – These require adherence to aesthetic aspects and boundary regulations. Homeowners association – They will be able to tell you if front yard pergolas are allowed, size limitations and more.

Location considerations such as whether front yard pergolas are allowed and will they block a neighbor’s view Be sure you know what you need to submit and when to avoid boosting your pergola construction cost with unnecessary fines or having to tear down and start over. Be organized – Make sure to provide all required documents, architectural plans and other necessary paperwork to expedite the approval process.

Familiarize yourself with the pergola building code – Use the correct terminology to avoid confusion. Calling the pergola a gazebo or carport may change the portions of the code that apply and put a kink in the approval process. Our pergola kits come complete with high-quality materials and detailed step-by-step assembly instructions.

For several of our pergola styles, we can provide an engineered drawing upon request after you purchase your kit, that can be used to pull permits or for HOA approvals.
