Wood Patio Covers & Pergolas

Wood patio covers are the best option when you’re looking for long-lasting shade.

Wood is Austex’s preferred patio cover material because it’s long-lasting, durable, and cost-effective. Many wood products are also pre-treated to be resistant to pests, moisture, and rot.

Wood patio covers are also one of the most customizable options because you can stain them to meet your color preferences. If you want a refresh in a few years, you can always stain it to a different color.


Western Red Cedar Patio Covers

All of Austex’s patio covers and pergolas are made with durable, weather-treated Western red cedar materials. What does this mean for you? Western red cedar patio covers offer a sophisticated design in a reddish to pinkish color with striking streaks and pops of dark red-brown.

We prefer cedar wood over other patio cover materials like aluminum and Alumawood because of its superior durability and beautiful design.


Wood Patio Covers

Another thing that we love about wood patio covers is that they check the boxes for both a modern and rustic design. You can easily consider different designs by choosing different stain colors or patio cover accents. At Austex, we aim to build you a patio cover or pergola that you’ll be 100% satisfied with for many years to come.

Austex also offers a variety of patio cover stain colors that can help you find the perfect color shade for your Austin property. With so many colors available, you can design a patio cover that seamlessly fits in with your home’s current exterior design.

Free-standing Patio Covers & Pergolas

With Austex’s free-standing patio covers and pergolas, you may not need a deck to enjoy your outdoor space. A free-standing patio cover or pergola is an option that doesn’t require attachment to your wall or deck space. Free-standing patio covers and pergolas are perfect for Austin and Central Texas homeowners who don’t have a deck or want to create an entertainment space away from the house.

One of the biggest benefits of a free-standing patio cover is that you can create a patio space anywhere in your yard.

You can also add shade to parts of the yard with minimal tree coverage. Add a beautiful patio cover over a hot tub, shed, or garage for additional shade.

Patio covers can also reduce sunlight, which reduces energy use and make certain parts of the yard or home more comfortable on hot afternoons.

Free-standing pergolas are also perfect for adding a vertical garden to your space. You can install a free-standing pergola on a deck for partial shade as well.

Attached Patio Covers & Pergolas

Many Central Texas homeowners prefer attached patio covers because of their added durability. Austex attaches patio covers and pergolas to the home using a ledger. A pergola attached to a house adds instant value and permanent shade. Attached patio covers also withstand high winds and storms better than free-standing ones.

Of course, because Austex offers so many customization options, we have a variety of options available to fit your situation. If you’re looking for a patio cover, reach out to us today to learn about your options.

How Much Does a Covered Patio or Pergola Cost in Austin?

The average cost of a patio cover varies, depending on things like size, material, design, and shape. Other factors to consider when calculating the cost of building a patio cover is whether it’s a covering or a pergola. The cost of a pergola may be lower than a covered patio, but it offers less shade. The cost of building a pergola also depends on whether it’s attached or free-standing.

Fortunately, Austex offers many financing options that make it possible to build your dream patio cover. You can easily buy today and pay over time using a revolving line of credit. You can also use our financing options with approved credit to build a new deck or fence to improve your outdoor space further.

WE LOVE OUR NEW ALL-CEDAR FENCE by AUSTEX FENCE ... they did a GREAT job from the estimate appointment thru the 2-day installation and our two neighbors that share the fence love it too! We had an all-cedar 6’ privacy fence built with #2 or better grade 5/8” X 6” cedar pickets and two cedar backer rails installed with metal posts including old fence tear down & haul away! We love how the cap & trim finished off the two public gate sections! PERFECTO! We were amazed at how your "gate guy" built the gates "on the fence" & cut it in half & it was an attached swinging gate ... it was like magic! Your crews were very skilled and did a super job! We were able to get an appointment for an estimate in one week and installation in two weeks in a very busy April 2022 following multiple tornadoes in the Austin metro. We highly recommend David Arkin our Residential Sales Representative ... he was on time, knowledgeable, professional, he took time to ask & listen to what we wanted and to answer all our questions at our estimate appointment, before we signed a contract, during the installation, and after installation. David's emailed 1-page estimate with drawing was easy to read and understand with all the correct measurements, details and cost breakdown for us to make a decision. AUSTEX also has a Residential Sales Coordinator who made the process run smooth and was available to answer questions. We purchased two extras ... the sprinkler insurance and cap and trim. We shared the cost with two neighbors & AUSTEX made it so easy for all 3 of us to pay our individual balances online ... so no collecting checks! Plus no service charge to use credit cards! Initially, I contacted 7 fence contractors, set estimate appointments with 4 fence contractors all who were recommended by my HOA neighbors … all 4 showed up! We received 4 estimates, 2 which we recommend. And 2 we don’t recommend due to lots of errors and missing info on their estimates. We selected AUSTEX FENCE because even tho they cost a little more they could install in two weeks (the other company was 6-8 weeks out), they only build ALL-cedar privacy fences, they try to reuse the existing post holes, easy to read estimate and easy for us & neighbors to pay online with no service charge to use credit cards. And AUSTEX FENCE has a 1-year warranty that covers defects in materials including the lumber and workmanship!

I hired Austex Fence & Deck to build a new wooden privacy fence surrounding the backyard. The fence looks great, construction started just a few days after the estimate, and it was completed in two business days. Every was responsive and easy to work with. I will definitely be recommending Austex to friends and family and will likely hire them again if we need more fence and deck installations or repairs.
