Roofing materials. There is a variety of materials that may be used to roof a pergola. The choice of roofing materials depend on the size. shape and style of the structure. The durability and robustness of the construction depends on the materials that are selected for this purpose. Currently the materials that are used for roofing include metals. plastic. fibreglass. polycarbonate. fabric. etc.
Polycarbonate. Polycarbonates are thermoplastic polymers which can be easily moulded and has a high impact resistance along with other advantages such as heat resistance. ease of shaping. flame retardancy and toughness. They are available for varying needs of heat transmission and transparency. Polycarbonates are also highly reputed for their protection from ultraviolet radiation. Along with a wonderful combination of colours to choose from. Polycarbonate can be manufactured to resist very specific and harsh environmental conditions in Australia. The two popular brands that are in use are Astrolite and Laserlite.
Have the pergola plans been made to scale? Depending upon your garden. the size of the pergola would also vary. It would be entirely pointless if you end up with a pergola too big or too small because it would fail to serve its primary purpose. Hence. make sure that the size of the pergola corresponds to the size of your garden before giving the go ahead for its construction.
Shade: Based on your preferences. you can pick pergola designs that either come with a little shade or a lot of it. The shading can be increased later using vining vegetation. A major advantage of using vining plants as shade is that they would offer more shade during summer and less during winter.
