Custom design or sizing can be a good idea to get a suitable pergola for your place. Look for manufacturers that insist on shop drawings prior to building and take the time to check everything repeatedly and make sure that all measurement and details are agreed to in writing ahead of delivery time.

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.
