Pergola. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 19:24:47 PM
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.
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.
Gazebos: The most remote corner or part of the garden is normally used to build a gazebo. In past gazebos were meant to be used in large gardens as a place to sit and enjoy the distant prospects and other parts of the countryside. Generally, gazebo is a place to enjoy the evening or afternoon sunshine. In many occasions, gazebo is raised to certain height to create an impact of seclusion or independence. It can be hexagonal, octagonal or even round with a paved flooring. The roof of the gazebo is usually made higher than usual, i.e. 2.1 m (7 feet) high or even higher, as they have to support the climbing plants. There is no adequate reason that you don’t include gazebo in your small garden. Using gazebo in small garden is of equal importance as in large gardens. You can pose it in the small garden to have a magnificent, distant view.
