Our Fantastic Customer Reviews


We are very pleased with Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions and the work they completed for us. We opted for the 14X16 Pavilion to be used for our outdoor kitchen and lounge area, The Pavilion joins the pool area to our patio. It was painted to match the trim on the house and topped off with a black metal roof. The ceiling of the Pavilion was stained with a pecan stain that our salesman suggested, and we are very pleased with the results.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavillions and they exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I reached out, the owner’s, John, professionalism shone through. He and his team were incredibly detail-oriented, ensuring every aspect of the project was executed with precision and care. All while being the most cost effective quote I received.

Levi and Jared’s (builders) talent truly stood out in the design and construction of my pergola. Their craftsmanship was exceptional, resulting in a stunning, quality addition to my outdoor space. I still can’t wrap my mind around how quickly they completed the project. What’s more, they did it all with a friendly attitude that made the entire experience enjoyable.

If you’re looking for a company that combines professionalism, attention to detail, talent, and friendliness, this is the place. I highly recommend Chicagoland P&P for your outdoor project needs.

From the initial consultation with Mark to the cleanup at the end of the install by Levi and Jared, this was a ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. Our backyard is our sanctuary and a peaceful place for us to unwind. This traditional pergola is the cherry on top. Thank you to everyone throughout the process that made this experience special for us! If you are reading this review and are serious about purchasing a pergola, or a pavilion STOP LOOKING!! Call these folks you won’t regret it!!

In May 2023, Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions built a pavilion over my existing backyard patio. I am well beyond satisfied with the pavilion Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions build. I have enjoyed this structure all summer and know that I will enjoy it for many years to come. The end result far exceeded my expectations.

From my initial contact with owner John O’Brien back in March, all members were outstanding. All of my questions were answered promptly, the permit process went smoothly, and great suggestions were made regarding options and stain color.

Once construction started, carpenters Levi and John (not the owner) were terrific. The cement piers were poured on Monday, and construction took place over 2 ½ days later in the week. Levi and John are very skilled carpenters and worked very hard on my project. They put in 2 very long days, and returned for a few hours on Friday to add the corner braces. As they worked, I was impressed that they never looked at a blueprint or plan!

Coincidentally, my neighbor had a gazebo built at the same time my pavilion was being constructed. After seeing the finished product in my yard, he said he wished he had hired the same crew that I did!

Thanks again to John O’Brien, carpenters Levi and John, and the rest of the team at Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions for their outstanding work and service. I know this structure will provide shade and shelter in my yard for many years to come. I highly recommend Chicagoland Pergola and Pavilions to anyone needing a pergola, pavilion, or gazebo built at their home.

John and his crew did a beautiful 16 x 16 modern pergola in less than a day to go with our new pool. Look great, the crew was professional and the craftsmen ship is top notch. We will be using Chicagoland Pergolas for future projects and heavily recommend them!!

We had been looking for over a year for a way to transform our relatively large backyard patio area into a comfortable, warm gathering space for friends and family. Our search ended with John and his team at Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions. John came out one day after my initial call, and I received a detailed fee quote immediately thereafter. John was incredibly responsive to all my initial questions regarding the fee, materials, building process, etc.. The building process itself was also amazing – Levi and Jared (the construction crew) were on time, dedicated, respectful, and incredibly skilled. The quality of their work is unmatched and we could not be happier with the final product. I wish we would have found them years ago. If you’re looking to upgrade your backyard space, look no further and give John a call.

Levi, John, and their team do incredible work the right way with very honest and fair pricing, are great to work with in terms of communication and follow through. They just want you to be happy with the finished project and are very receptive to your ideas before and during build no matter the circumstance. They bring the finished product to life just how you envisioned it. I would and will recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional, trustworthy company to work with on their next project.

Great Company! They do quality work and are very professional. My large pergola was completed within 3 days. Awesome experience.

I’ve been wanting to put a pergola on our roof since we moved into our condo a year ago but was so wry about starting the process – and then I found John and his team at Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions! What a spectacular and individualized experience. John came out to see the space, talk through details, and provide a free quote for multiple options so we had choices. He was extremely responsive during the entire process, answering question after question by providing detailed answers so nothing was left in question. Even when we were struggling to pick a stain color, he dropped off a sample page so we could make an informed decision. The quality of the materials appears to be topnotch and prices were reasonable, especially when compared to others in the area. He kept us informed on timeline and changes, apologizing when the planned date was delayed one day due to weather. The build took two days and Levi, Jared, and Matt were efficient, quick, and very professional. They communicated with us and checked in periodically to make sure the pergola was to our specifications. We are absolutely thrilled with the final outcome and were amazed that from our initial contact until completion, it was less than one month! Thank you Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions for making our rooftop pergola our new sanctuary!

We worked with Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions as part of our backyard transformation project. They designed and built a beautiful custom cedar pavilion for us.

The design and estimate process was quick and easy to understand what options were available and what the end product was going to be. I gathered various quotes on different pavilion options and Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions was very competitive for what you got – especially when you start comparing the type and size of lumber to others. They use top quality materials throughout – wood, paint, roofing, and stain.

The actual build of the pavilion was also a fantastic experience. The crew was knowledgeable, friendly, communicative, easy to work with, and cleaned up along the way. Craftsmanship was top-notch, meaning the entire structure was trimmed out nicely, numerous coats of paint and stain applied, as well caulking on all seams and gaps for a flawless end result.

I would not hesitate to recommend Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions to anyone looking for a pavilion and a great end to end experience.

Mark Nickley, Jared, and Levi did a superb job on our pergola. It looks very nice and keeps the harmful UV rays out. Now we can enjoy our patio with the beautiful pergola. Even our dog finds it relaxing. I especially like to sit out there when it is raining. I stay nice and dry. In addition, passed all the inspections. Thank you so much.

Levi and John are amazing…. they built a custom structure to fit our unconventional roofline. The workmanship and craftsmanship were outstanding and their attention to detail is excellent. Would hire them again in a heartbeat.

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the exceptional craftsmanship and professionalism of the Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions/Tri State Pergolas team. From start to finish, their attention to detail and commitment to delivering a high-quality structure were evident.

The team displayed a deep understanding of pergola design and construction techniques, ensuring that every aspect of the project was executed with precision. They took the time to listen to my ideas and requirements, incorporating them seamlessly into the final design. Their expertise and creativity truly transformed my outdoor space into a stunning oasis.

Throughout the construction process, the team demonstrated outstanding communication and collaboration skills. They kept me informed at every stage, providing regular updates and addressing any concerns promptly. Their dedication to customer satisfaction was remarkable, and they went above and beyond to ensure that the final product exceeded my expectations.

Not only did the team exhibit professionalism and technical proficiency, but they also showcased a genuine passion for their craft. Their enthusiasm was contagious, and it was evident that they took great pride in their work. This passion translated into an exceptional finished product that not only added value to my property but also enhanced my overall enjoyment of my outdoor living space.
I wholeheartedly recommend Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions/Tri State Pergolas to anyone looking to create a beautiful and functional outdoor structure. Their expertise, professionalism, and commitment to delivering outstanding results make them a top choice for any construction project. I am incredibly grateful for their exceptional work and thrilled with the final result of my pergola.

We are so happy with the pergola completed by John and his team for our condo patio. The style is sharp, the structure is well-built, and the crew was extremely professional and tidy during the install. We shopped around for estimates, but Chicagoland Pergola had our favorite options for wood finishes, the price was fair, and I got the sense that they took their work seriously. Indeed they did. We are looking forward to a summer in the shade!

Love our pergola! John, Levy and their team did an incredible job. It’s sturdy and beautiful – construction was done in two days. Can’t recommend Chicagoland Pergolas highly enough.

Chicagoland Pergolas was excellent to work with. They had an extremely quick turnaround on initial quote, answering questions, scheduling and install. The final product is well crafted and looks great.

Let me Just say, From the Owner John to the Sales VP Mark and the Installer Levi (along with his team) we could not have been treated more Professionally or been provided with more top-notch customer service! I must also say the materials used on our Pergola were top quality. The Installers workmanship was second to none!!! From the install to the final paint application!
Today, this type of service, workmanship and quality materials are so very hard to find!!!
We are extremely pleased with the results and cannot wait to show it off!!! :)…:)
Very Happy Customers

Simply the best nobody compares when you talk about price availability and getting the job done in a timely manner

We cannot say enough about how happy we are with Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions. John (the owner) came out for an assessment a few days after we reached out. He talked us through the different options and what he thought would work best for our space. We had a formal quote the next day, Wednesday, and by Monday morning the team was here to build our pergola! They were professional, kind, and respectful. They called us at decision points (height, number of privacy panels, etc.) to come take a look and ensure we were comfortable with the decisions we made. By Wednesday night, we were enjoying dinner on our roof. Our outdoor space has become so much more usable and we paid thousands less with Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions than we were being quoted by serval other companies.

John and his team have been amazing. They created our dream pergola on our outdoor patio in West town. They were very professional and nice to work with. They guided us all the way to create the perfect pergola that matches our wants and needs.
We couldn’t be happier to finally enjoyed our outdoor space all year long!

I am very pleased with the pergola! The installation went smoothly and the crew made sure everything was cleaned up when finished. I still need to have the landscaping done around the concrete patio I had done before the pergola so I don’t have finished photos as of yet. But even as is the pergola makes quite the statement! It is a beautiful addition to our home!

John was awesome from the start. Very responsive and worked very well with our budget and goals in mind. The project was completed in a day with the finishing touches the following day. Our pergola was up and ready to use for all our summer plans within 2 weeks of getting the quote! Amazing team, very professional, hard workers and kept us in the loop throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend!!

If you are considering enhancing your outdoor space with a pergola, John O’Brien and his team at Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions should be up for strong consideration. Based on John’s promptness and professionalism, we decided to move forward with Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions.

John visited my home the following week to verify and finalize measurements, provide sample color stains, and answer all my questions regarding building our pergola on my patio. For a personalized consultation, he suggested a specific color (Behr Slate) outside of our already narrowed-down choices of color stains as it would compliment our patio and we actually went with his suggestion. We were pleased to find out that they were going to build and install our pergola the later that week.

I met the install team of Levi and John (another John). We went through all the build details such as the locations of the center of the footings, suggested pergola height, spacing, etc. They are highly-skilled carpenters and work very efficiently as they completed our pergola in a day. Lastly, these gentlemen were extremely respectful of my property as well as the property of my neighbors as they were very thorough with their cleanup. Many thanks to John and his build/install team (Levi and John) at Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions!

John responded very quickly to my inquiry about installing a pergola on our garage deck, which is south facing so gets crazy intense sun. He provided several options together with pictures, and came within a week to inspect our garage deck to verify what options worked.

The foreman, Levi, was on time, polite, professional and the crew worked quickly, but carefully. My wife is a structural engineer and was curious about the whole process. The crew was happy to work with her and answer all questions.

The final product is awesome. The quality of the wood is clearly high, the shade provided is excellent, even in the hottest part of the day, and the price was (by far) the best quote we got. It’s hard enough to get contractors to respond to emails and get quotes. This was next level great service.

After the construction was done, John followed up to make sure everything was to our liking and asked for suggestions of how to improve their service. I struggle to come up with suggestions, but I *love* that he asked. This is the sign of a good business – always looking to be better.

We had two pergolas built – one over our house deck and another carport pergola. Very impressed as the work was professionally completed by Levi and Jaime in less than a week! John and Levi were also quite responsive to our initial concern with the placement of two of our tiers. They came out very early the next morning to explain the situation to our complete satisfaction. John is the initial point person and he leaves it up to his crews to do the work – although they speak a lot during the construction to ensure the work crew is spot on as to our design requests. We are very pleased with the finished products and highly recommend them to you if you are considering a pergola or a carport cover!

The experience was overall FANTASTIC, from my initial meeting with John to the installation with his amazing crew, the project went smoothly. I absolutely love my new rooftop pergola and can’t wait to enjoy it with friends and family.

We had a fantastic experience with this company from start to finish. John is a true professional and a great communicator – he was very responsive whenever we had questions. The team who came out to build the pergola showed up on time and got the job done quickly. We’re incredibly satisfied with the finished product. 100% recommend working with them. You won’t regret it.

I have and will continue to recommend Chicagoland Pergolas. They were VERY professional and hit the rare to find trifecta of working with someone in home improvement: on time, responsive, and great value! They completed my project from inquiry to build in under a week and construction was only 1 day.

We had a terrific customer experience. John and his team are very responsible and communicative. The build was fast, clean and professional – everything I expected. Now I get to enjoy the beautiful outdoors under the shade of my new lovely pergola.

From the initial sales discussions to the build of our pavilion, everyone associated was professional, courteous, and enjoyable to work with. It was especially nice to work with a company that did exactly what they said they would do and did in the time they expected to have it complete by.

John and his team were a pleasure to work with. From start to finish, they were super responsive and communicative, and provided a ton of customizable options and samples to help me design the perfect structure to match my outdoor space. The final product is stunning, well-built, and came in at a significantly lower cost than other quotes I received. The quick turn-around time on construction means we will be able to fully enjoy our outdoor space this summer in the shade. Highly recommend this company if you are considering upgrading your outdoor space!

CP&P, *** was extremely easy, accommodating, and timely to deal with via phone, They 1st got back to me within 12 hours after requesting info. Next, they were able to come out for a home estimate within days. Soon after we received the quote when **** said he’d have it by. IMO it was completely fair pricing, plenty of decorative/building options with pictures, and a detailed plan on how they’d build our pergola and length of the project. If it wasn’t for the uncooperative weather, they would’ve completed the project in the 1.5 days. The crew who built the pergola were nothing less than exceptional because, they were very communicative in their steps and answers all questions. We couldn’t have asked for a better finished product or better people to deal with!!-
-Completely Satisfied Rooftop Pergola customer in LakeView.

Wow, it is so refreshing to know there are still great companies around. From start to finish, we could not be happier with John and crew. Great quality work and product at a great price . Stop looking at others people, call John and be as thrilled as we are . Now, I have to work on Levi’s rock and roll education. 🙂

I can’t say enough about how well these guys operate. Great communication, easy to work with, and finished up the project on time with fantastic result

John was very communicative and responded quickly from the get go. I contacted many other places with pictures and details and while some had not responded or responded days after with something completely different, John responded within a few hours and scheduled his free consultation. He was very knowledgeable, listened to our needs and worked within our budget. When the builders John (a different one) and Matt came out, they did the job in less than 3 days even with us being on the 3rd floor roof which was impressive in its own right.

All in all this was such a smooth experience that was timely and with excellent communication. Our new pergola is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend you put John and his team into consideration for any pergola project. They will not disappoint.

“John and his team were great through the whole process. He reached out within hours of requesting an appointment to come out and take a look at what we wanted to do. Originally, we were planning on getting a pavilion out of the box from Costco, but we really needed something custom to get the most out of our space. After agreeing to move forward with John, he stayed in touch with us through every step. He let us know about delays for weather and updates on our timeline for completion. The two installers he sent were very professional and excellent at what they do. They worked through the rain to make sure they finished in a day. Again, I can’t speak highly enough of John and his communication skills. I’ve had plenty of the opposite when dealing with contractors.”

“A truly outstanding company offering extremely high-quality custom decking and pergolas at affordable prices. And they cut through red tape.

I cannot say enough good things about them.

The front office led by the owner, John is highly responsive, consultative, and knowledgeable. All calls are answered within 24 hours, promises made are promises kept, and no question is too dumb to be asked. He has a very high level of expertise and will visit your home as often as is needed to get the project scope right. The finest materials are procured including cedar pergolas and the very best composite decking material.

John’s construction crew is responsible for the operations side, and they are equally impressive in terms of knowledge, experience, and dedication to quality. Working in under 10-degree weather they tore down my old deck, built a new substructure, a new polycarbonate roofed pergola, and a new deck using cool decking composite material in less than a week’s time. The attention to detail and the pride taken in completing a truly impressive piece of construction was nothing short of breath-taking. And John checks in with them throughout the build.

In less than one week’s time, they tore down my old run-down dilapidated eyesore of a deck and created something truly special. I still can’t get over it.

If I could give them 6 stars or more I would”

I came across Chicagoland Pergolas on Facebook and reached out to John who was extremely responsive. He was quick to book an appointment to come round and provide a quote. He was helpful giving advice and providing amendments to quotes upon request.

After getting some other quotes back we chose Chicagoland due to their responsiveness and ability to get the job done much quicker than their peers, and without a surcharge for bringing materials to a third floor walk up. We also liked that they use high quality cedar and have a wide variety of stains.

Come installation date John was the best! He was communicative on arrival time, provided a thorough run through and explained what he was going to do. Him and his partner were able to put it up in one day. They were respectful of the space too, such nice people.

The quality of the pergola is great and stands out from others that are around us, we are so happy we chose these guys and can’t wait to enjoy it soon.

We’re THRILLED with our new pergola! John (the owner) was very easy to schedule with and they even moved us up in the construction schedule so we got our pergola sooner than expected. John (the foreman) was great on the jobsite. Very professional, took time to go over the construction with us, and built a high-quality structure. We’d 100% recommend them and will use them again when we need another pergola!

“John and his team were super easy to work with and did quality work. Prior to the job, John answered all my questions about the pergola structure including specific issues that affected our particular deck. He also provided me with references that made me feel comfortable with hiring him. When construction time came, the two man crew quickly put together the pergola together in a day. The crew itself was probably the most polite and professional I’ve hired for any job. All lumber was pre-measured and pre-cut, so noise level for construction was at a minimum. HIGHLY recommend these guys for pergola projects!”

“We had our pergola built on the rooftop in the city and the process was seamless. John stopped by for an initial assessment and was very responsive from start to finish. Installers did an excellent job being careful bringing up all the lumber and cleaning up after.

Everyone was very professional and meticulous and knocked it out 1.5 days.”

“John was an absolute pleasure to work with! He came to our home on 2 separate occasions to help design our pergola. He was a prompt texter and emailed and answered all of our questions thoroughly. The build was seamless- the installers were early and truly pleasant. The pergola looks unbelievably awesome and we are so excited to use the space once it warms up a bit. Everyone should use Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions – we couldn’t recommend them enough!”

“Highly recommend you contact John and team at Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions. They are total professionals, have the ability to execute on any ask, and really help bring visions to life. I brought the team in to build out my roof deck with a full pergola structure, steel roof, privacy walls and a custom stone built-in for my TV. They executed flawlessly and completed the full build in just 2.5 days. They’re quick and efficient, yet detailed and specific. I couldn’t be happier with the final product and would (and will) hire them again for any projects to come.”

What more can I say – Chicagoland Pergolas and Pavilions is EVERYTHING and MORE than I could ever imagine. Starting from receiving my initial estimate, all the way to project completion, I have nothing but great things to say about the professionalism, promptness in communication, craftmanship, and their overall pleasantness in working with.

They worked to ensure the pergola design would be most beneficial to my space, and they even went the extra mile by dropping off several samples of different color stained cedar to ensure we were satisfied with our choice (before even agreeing to work with them). I also had 20+ questions before moving forward, and they answered every single one in a very timely manner. That made the decision so easy to move forward with them!

Then, when the installation date approached, I never felt in better hands with the team that was on site to construct our dream pergola. They lived up to their promise – our pergola was finished in 1.5 days – I couldn’t believe it! It was everything we had hoped and dreamed for.

I highly recommend this team to anyone in the Chicagoland area!
