Topic: Pergola beams steel vs concrete

I have a requirement of making pergolas for my proposed house. Considering the safety it can be made only in Steel or Concrete. I would like to the know what would be the approximate cost comparison between this. Considering the maintenance aspect my inclination is more towards concrete beams. Please provide your valuable inputs.

            Cement concrete paragolas are cheap than MS steel paragolas.

Dear PR, 
Also from the maintenance point of view, RCC pergola structure will be easier to maintain.  I'll try to find out the cost comparison between the two and update.  Does any one else has some ready made numbers for these?

thanks

Post subject: Thanks for your answers

Thanks for your answers. I am considering a cross section of 100mm x 150mm for a span of about 8 feet. Since the beams would not be loaded, I guess this would be sufficient to hold its self weight with some reinforcement. Kindly confirm

Dear Jawahar

     As stated by you, the section of pergola 100mmx 150 mm is sufficent for 8 feet span. Use 12 mm dia MS steel bar 4nos with 6or 8mm rings 3'' center to centre. use cement concrete 1;1.5;3 mix and do proper curing.

Hello all,

I am planning to construct my house.  I am planning to build a pergola.  Usually how is pergola charged to the customer by contracters?  Whether it is on square feet basis? I am planning for a RCC pergola with steel running within it.

Thanks in Advance
K. Shriram

Dear Shriramk
              The contractor charge as per agreement. If this point is silent than contractor try to get more and charged for square meter which is more or less correct.

Dear Gupta Sir,

Thanks for the information.  The agreement does not speak about pergola. If he charges according to square feet, should it include the entire area? For example I want a pergola to be constructed in an open area of dimensions 12 feet by 6 feet.  I want 3 straight rods of thickness 0.5 feet and length 12 feet in this 12 by 6 area.  In this case what is the general practise? Does the contractors charge for (12 *6 = 72 square feet) or it should be for (12*0.5 * 3 = 18 square feet)?  My contractor was saying he would charge for 72 square feet at the mentioned rate of my contract which is 1800 per square feet for the entire house.  Please advise me if this is fair enought.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Shriramk
          Your agreement is on trough rate base where area have very much significance for cost if it is on labor than no much concern. This way you have to pay in lacs for some thousands. It is better drop the idea for some time and do this after completion form other agency by arranging material by yourself  and mason fix it and you will not to spend more than 10% of cost as demanded by your contractor.
