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.
The obvious advantage is the conversation factor, as people talk about your pergola and the elegance that it lends to your landscaping. One of the not so obvious advantages if they are done correctly and positioned in the correct manner, are that you can actually use the vines from the pergola to help shade the area that they cover, thereby lowering the overall temperature of the garden area. This is especially true on balmy summer afternoons when the hot sun often causes people to stay inside. A well designed pergola will allow you to once again make use of your garden area for living and entertaining comfortably.
Growing vines adds additional shade because they cover the top of the structure; this makes your pergola more useful and comfortable to sit under. If you will be growing vines, it is important for you to make sure that your pergola is sturdy enough to hold the additional weight and stress of the vines. Vines, especially wisteria, are strong and can damage the structures that are not constructed properly.
