The average gazebo repair cost is around $2,392, with a typical range between $1,256 and $3,569. You might pay as little as $50 for a fabric canopy tear repair and as much as $3,000 for a slate roof replacement. The cost of gazebo repairs is wide-ranging—it depends on the type of repair and the materials used.

Gazebo Repair Prices by Type

The cost of gazebo repairs varies depending on what needs fixing or replacing and the materials used.

Canopy Repair or Replacement

Fabric canopies can develop small tears. When this happens, a DIY fix is possible with a patch repair kit. This will typically cost less than $50 to purchase.

If the canopy suffers significant damage, it will need replacing. They can lose their waterproofing qualities, fade in the sun, or just have overall wear and tear. Replacing the canopy can cost as little as $50 for a small, off-the-shelf variety, up to $500 or more for a custom-fit, durable, multi-tiered style.

Roof Repair

Roof repairs are common on older structures or those subject to severe weather. The cost will depend on the severity of any damage, the type of materials needed, and whether you need professional help.

Shingle

Asphalt shingle roofs are common on gazebos. The cost to repair an asphalt shingle roof could be as low as $30 to $50 if you only need to replace a few shingles yourself. Expect to pay around an additional $45 to $65 per hour for a pro to help you with the job.

If a larger area needs replacing, with professional assistance, it could cost anywhere from $300 to $800. The type of shingle used and the extent of the damage may both impact the final cost.

Metal

Metal roof repair costs can be as low as $100 for resealing seams, up to $1,500 for re-coating or replacing panels. The cost per square foot is around $1 to $5 per square foot.

Wood

The average cost for a bundle of cedar shake covering is $130, and it works out around $4 per square foot. Because you often have to buy them in bundles, it means it’s expensive to replace just a few shingles.

Slate Tiles

The average price of slate tiles is roughly $4 per square foot, but a luxury slate can be as much as $10 per square foot. Slate tile roof repairs are typically the most expensive.

Rotten Post Replacement

If you have an unscreened or soft-sided wooden gazebo, the wooden posts can rot over time and need replacing.

Expect to pay from around $150 to $500 for post replacement.

Screen or Siding Repairs

For screened-in gazebos, making a patch repair on a vinyl or fabric siding may cost as little as $50. If you have wood sidings with windows, broken glass panes are a possibility. The average cost to have a window replaced in your gazebo is $350.

Gazebo Repair Cost Factors

Your gazebo size, material, and complexity of construction will all impact repair costs.

Performing regular maintenance can also reduce the number of repairs your gazebo needs. Pressure washing awnings, roof cleaning, repainting or resealing wood finishes, and keeping gutters clean are all jobs worth doing to extend the structure’s overall lifespan.

Gazebos with extras like electrical wiring, ceiling fans, or hot tubs may require additional repairs.

DIY vs. Hire a Gazebo Repair Pro

You can do repairs on fabric, easy-erect, temporary gazebos yourself. Not only are they often inexpensive and straightforward, but the gazebo price wouldn’t usually merit the cost to hire a pro to come in to repair it. Gazebo patch repair tape and kits are widely available, and repairs are not likely to cost more than $50.

For permanent gazebos made from wood or other strong materials, repairs may be more complex and require the expertise of a pro. There are also safety considerations for roof repairs or when dealing with faulty electrics.

However, when replacing a few shingles or clearing guttering, for example, a savvy and safety-conscious DIY’er looking to save on labor costs can do this.

FAQs

Is a gazebo the same as a pergola?

Although often confused, pergolas and gazebos are different garden structures. Wooden framed pergolas offer visual interest and filtered shade. Gazebos have roofs and provide full shade and shelter—traditionally, they are hexagonal in shape. If you just want to define an area in your outdoor living space and grow trailing vines, then a pergola is a better option. The cost to build a pergola is typically less than a gazebo.

Which type of professional do I call for gazebo repairs?

Although there are professionals who specialize in gazebo construction, depending on what type of repair your gazebo needs, other tradespeople can often help with repairs.

For example, a local roofing pro will help you fix a leaky roof or replace missing shingles, a reputable local handyperson could treat or seal gazebo wood, and a glazier near you can replace window panes.
