If you choose not to go with a solid top pergola OKC, and opt for the traditional slatted top, you may want to consider a little extra protection from the rain and other weather that may affect your time spent underneath it. Whether you are cooking in your outdoor kitchen, or just relaxing in your patio furniture, you will want to stay dry and shaded. There are quite a few options out there, and you will have to consider each one to determine which one is the best fit for you and your pergola. PMH prefers polycarbonate roofing to any other kind of roofing. Polycarbonate roofs are available in both clear and UV tinted. The clear is barely noticeable and provides complete protection. The UV tinted polycarbonate roofing helps you stay protected from the harmful UV rays that can cause burning and skin cancer and skin cancer and premature aging. Not everyone likes the gray tint of the UV tinted roof but will settle for it in order to get the protection that they want. PMH includes these in all of their pergola packages.

Plastic is another option, and while it is like polycarbonate, it is not as sturdy as polycarbonate and may not last as long but it will serve the same purpose and provide you with the protection that you need from the rain, snow, sleet, and hail.

Bird droppings and insects and falling fall leaves are another reason to place a covering on your pergola. Metal is an option but may give you more shade than you want. If you opt for the slatted pergola versus the solid top, the metal will end up giving you the solid top look, so you might as well go with a solid top to make it look nicer and more uniform. Metal is also noisier when it comes to big raindrops falling on top of it. Hail is also an issue with metal because it can dent metal and cause hail damage. Metal is probably the least appealing option when it comes to a pergola covering for protection.

A lot of pergolas are made of fiberglass, however, PMH constructs all of their custom pergolas out of one hundred percent western red cedar for the best quality and craftsmanship. A fiberglass covering would work best on a fiberglass pergola.

Fabric is another option for a pergola covering because it will be soundproof, and it can be replaced at a less expensive price than some of the other options. There are more colors to choose from and a wider selection of fabric materials. It will not weather quite as well as some of the other options, and squirrels could chew it up and it is harder to clean if it gets bird droppings on it. It is one of the least desirable options when it comes to pergola coverings.

Mesh would fall into the same category as fabric because it is not very durable. It can develop snags and holes very quickly. It also doesn’t fit as snug to the pergola and can lift and bubble and fly off easier. It does not look as nice as the firmer options.
