AND MATERIAL OPTIONS


Discover the perfect pavilion builder for your backyard oasis. Explore wood, vinyl, and timber frame options. Plus, add an outdoor fireplace or kitchen.

PAVILION BUILDER HOUSTON


Our Houston Pavilion Builders offer three options for creating your dream project: WOOD, VINYL, AND TIMBER FRAME.


If you like the natural, rustic look of a pavilion, then the wood is an option that should be considered when planning your backyard space. With different options and features available, you can also give this traditional-looking structure a touch of modern art that will help to make those summer evenings much more enjoyable. Our wood pavilion is competitively priced and built to last for decades. With a wood structure, you also get the option of stain color to give you the rustic, traditional feeling you are looking for. Our Pavilion builders in Houston can also use a kit if you want to save money.

VINYL PAVILION

In the last few years, the vinyl pavilion's popularity has grown. Customers wanted a cleaner, sleeker-looking pavilion than the wood pavilion offered. The vinyl pavilion quickly became a popular option. While the vinyl pavilion will cost you approximately 20% more than a comparative wood pavilion, the vinyl pavilion does have a unique look that many people are willing to pay for. The vinyl pavilion often matches your house better than a wood pavilion will. Just like our wood pavilions, which are known for being a high-quality outdoor pavilion option, the vinyl pavilion is also built with the same high quality in mind. The vinyl pavilion offers low maintenance and is an outdoor pavilion that will quickly become the favorite spot in the backyard.

 


TIMBER FRAME PAVILION

A timber frame pavilion's distinct, majestic feel will command the attention it deserves in your backyard space. The timber frame pavilion is not just a slight upgrade from other wood pavilions. Its bold, distinct look gives it the most significant “WOW” effect. From the massive #1 Douglas-fir timber to the small intricate details, these solid wood structures offer a natural beauty only wood can provide. While the timber frame pavilion is a beautiful outdoor structure, it does come with a price tag that only this structure can justify. The most miniature timber frame pavilion we offer, 12×16’, has an approximate starting price of $12,000.

  • OUTDOOR FIREPLACE


Outdoor fireplaces are an option that many people add to their outdoor pavilion. The pure beauty and peace that a glow from an outdoor fireplace gives can’t be given a price. This aspect alone is reason enough for adding an outdoor fireplace to your pavilion. While there is a cost to an outdoor fireplace, ask your friends if they regret adding it, and I can almost guarantee they will give you a quick no. We, as humans, love spending a chilly night gathered around a warm fire with family and friends. While LCB does not install fireplaces, we will work with the landscaper or contractor you have hired. We aren't masonry experts and will not bill for the outdoor fireplace. An outdoor fireplace costs approximately $15,000 – $20,000 more.

OUTDOOR KITCHEN

An outdoor kitchen is a luxury. If you ask the people with an outdoor kitchen pavilion, they will tell you they love it, too. Whether you love to grill the food for outdoor parties yourself or just like the look of an outdoor kitchen pavilion, you won’t regret saying yes to an outdoor kitchen. For example, we don’t install the outdoor kitchen in our pavilions, like the outdoor fireplace. This would be done through the landscaper or contractor whom you hire. We will work with whoever you specify to ensure they have the correct drawings for the outdoor pavilion. The approximate price range for an outdoor kitchen is $5,000 – $20,000. We are not outdoor kitchen experts, so this price is just an approximation.

ELECTRIC

With all of our pavilions, the standard electrical package installation is an additional $400. We highly recommend adding this package simply because it is easy to install. We are building your pavilion on-site. The electrical package includes one receptacle and switches on the same post and one drop-down wire from the center of the ceiling. This price will increase if you want additional receptacles installed. You must hire an electrician to hook the electricity to the pavilion.

 

ROOF MATERIALS

SHINGLES

The pavilion has a shingled roof, which is included in the base price we listed above. You can choose from 14 different shingle colors to create the outdoor pavilion look you want; these options are free of charge.

 

REGULAR METAL

If you are looking for a different look for your pavilion besides the shingle look, then regular metal might fit you. While not as expensive as standing seam metal, regular metal can add a very stylish glow to your outdoor pavilion. Regular metal increases the pricing above by approximately 15%—25%. For a low-maintenance, long-life roof, this is an option that is worth some consideration.

STANDING SEAM METAL

The deluxe option will take your outdoor pavilion to the next level. The modern beauty it brings to your pavilion cannot be denied. While giving your pavilion a contemporary look and feel, it will also give you unmatched durability and longevity. With no exposed screws in your roof, standing seam metal keeps your pavilion roof looking clean and sleek. Standing seam metal does come with an approximately 25% – 50% upcharge from the pavilion base cost.

PAVILION FOUNDATION

A cost that often isn’t thought about for an outdoor pavilion is the foundation. For 24 hours a day, seven days a week, your pavilion is being held up by a foundation. Therefore, that foundation needs to be solid. For a pavilion foundation, the recommended foundation is concrete piers. The approximate cost for concrete piers is $1,500 – $2,500. Concrete piers are a good option for your pavilion over your landscape pavers. This way, the pavers can be cut to fit and be placed around the columns.

We hope that whether you are in the early dreaming stages of how your backyard space will look or if you are looking at different pavilions and the style options that will look best in your backyard. You feel more confident in the prices and decisions you will encounter. Few things are more frustrating than realizing you can’t afford the outdoor pavilion you have been dreaming about for so long.

Timber Framing: What It Is & What It's Not

Timber Framing. It is one of the oldest construction methods around!  Today, there are lots of “knock-offs” that aren’t accurate timber framing. Find out what the difference is between timber framing and those pavilion or other structures that look a lot like it, but use metal fasteners or screws instead of the mortise and tenon and wood pegs.
