Can a Pergola be Installed in Reno in January?


It’s not unusual to have cold, clear days during the winter months here in northern Nevada, which begs the questions: Can a patio cover or pergola be installed in Reno in January? With the right weather pattern, it’s certainly possible. In fact, it can be a great time of year to save money! Here’s what to know if you’re considering this sort of project in Reno or Sparks this winter.

Winter Pergola Installations in Reno

Seasonality can affect many businesses, and Golden Eagle Builders is no different. At Golden Eagle Builders, our licensed contractors specialize in finish carpentry, deck builds, and patio covers and pergolas, and colder weather means we’re doing a lot of interior work. But between the holidays and the weather, things are slower than other times of year, which means more availability for quick-turnaround projects. And that can work to your advantage.

Keep in mind that a patio cover or pergola project requires both attention to detail and a plan. In addition to accessing materials for the job, permits must be pulled. In the winter specifically, weather patterns must also be considered. Since these pergola projects require concrete footings, it’s important to time these projects to stretches of appropriate weather. 

If a pergola project is something you’re considering in January or February, contacting an experienced contractor should be your first step. In Reno, Golden Eagle Builders has the experience, expertise, and licenses for the project, and we’re happy to answer all of your questions.
