Using sand paper remove all paint until the surface is completely prepared. Apply a water-repellent and fungicide if necessary. Using a paint-sprayer spread evenly from the farthest end to the back. High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) sprayer is more efficient and smooth. Use a paint roller to get a smooth finish. Give a light coating on the roof of the Pergola. Fill in the gaps and allow the paint to dry for up to four hours. Apply a second coat of paint on the roof of the pergola. Allow the paint to dry overnight.

The reason is pergolas are always sized based on their roof size. And in most cases pergolas are recessed back from the roof edge anywhere from 8 inches to a couple of feet depending on the design (commonly 12"). Custom design or sizing can be a good idea to get a suitable pergola for your place.

Traditional pergolas can be transformed into modern style by replacing its roofing with transparent materials. There are several transparent materials which can be used as roofing such as Plexiglas sheets complete-transparent covers and glass panels. Plexiglas sheets can be used if you want protection from rain and direct sunlight without heating the sitting area of the pergola. Complete-transparent covers are used if you want to keep the traditional style of your pergola but still provide the protection you need from rain. On the other hand the glass panels can be used if your pergola is located in an open area without worrying about falling tree branches or fruits.
