Sort of a wide-open question you asked, becasue you did not specify if you want a permanent or temporary canopy, slatted or rainproof, to be taken down/rolled up in bad weather or not, hurricane rated or not, etc.

General numbers - obcviously you need to research further and once a is decided on, then get quotes -

1) a tent type canopy, like a tent gazebo or temporary shelter type (definitely NOT going to stay up in a heavy storm) - runs from $0.50-2.00/SF for kits, $2-5/SF professionally erected.

2) permanent aluminum slatted shade canopies or awnings, from about $7-10/SF depending on fanciness and whether hurricane rated

3) aluminum solid (waterproof) canopies about $10-15/SF for plain, to $40/SF architectural >

4) wood slatted canopies (arbors), stick-built about $10-20/SF

5) retractable awnings on permanent aluminum frame about $12-20/SF

6) wood and shingle waterproof gazebo-type permanent "roof" over patio - $50-100/SF
