Comparative Study of Roofing Materials for a Pergola: Permanent structures like metal roofs are difficult to change but they can be repainted. Fibreglass and clean plastic materials may change colour after a period but they can be discarded and new ones can be installed easily. The choice of materials to cover or roof the pergola depends on the buyer’s instincts as to the choices for durability, permanency and availability. In tropical Australia, zinc-galvanized corrugated sheets do not reflect infrared or ultraviolet much. White roofs reflect better. White or soft shades are better colors for a cool roof. As the Earth seeks to get greener, the best choice, of course is to enjoy traditional, open roofed pergolas.
Elegant and state of the art pergolas rely on a well detailed pergola plan which will contain recommended construction materials of optimum design and quality, along with an extensive lot survey of where to assemble your pergola. Furthermore, big pergolas require thorough checks with the rules, regulations and city ordinances of your locality as different cities provide a variety of restrictions.
The structural design of a pergola is a great place for you to grow and showcase beautiful and exquisite vine plants, such as roses and wisteria. It is essential that before you purchase a plant, you pay close attention to its growing habits. If you are aiming for attractive setting, plants that grow high enough to reach and cover the top of the pergola would be your best choice. Another great way to add a touch of beauty to your landscape is by utilizing hanging plant baskets; these can be suspended from the open lattice work on top of the structure. You can also design your garden pergola so that it fits a sitting area underneath. Other options is to use one as a structure to walk under to gain entrance to your backyard or garden, or you can simply use one as an entryway.
