Polycarbonate Pergolas Have Endless Benefits

Deciding to transform your patio into a comfortable outdoor sanctuary of relaxation is easy. Pergolas and patio covers let you spend time in your landscape even on the most sweltering of summer days.

A pergola is the ideal solution to complement or complete an outdoor space. Depending on the details you choose, a pergola creates a new living space. They combine the best of indoors and outdoors. This article discusses one simple way to upgrade your pergola.

What is a Pergola?

Some people aren’t sure exactly what a pergola is. A pergola is a garden structure or feature that creates a shaded walkway or seating area with vertical posts or pillars that often support decorative cross-beams and a sturdy open framework.

Pergolas are an excellent way to add shade and privacy while not blocking visibility like an enclosed roof or a wall would. Choosing the right design and material—cedar or aluminum—is more difficult. To find the right pergola for you and to learn more, read our blog, Your perfect pergola — cedar or aluminum?

Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets

Multi-wall translucent polycarbonate sheets make the perfect pergola cover. They provide shelter in all kinds of weather. A premium grade polycarbonate roofing sheet is ideal for covering your garden or patio covered pergola.

The multi-wall translucent polycarbonate canopy cover sheets are virtually indestructible. They offer UV protection from the sun and provide shelter enabling you to enjoy your deck, patio, or garden structure all year-round.

Polycarbonate sheets are versatile so they can be ordered to cover any dimensions. They have a variety of thickness starting at 6 mm. The sheets are available in double and triple layered configurations and manufactured in various colors and degrees of transparency.

The most common applications include but are not limited to, patio covers, carport covers, greenhouses, hurricane shutters, signage and interior walls. At Increte of Houston we use Polygal™ by Regal Plastics.
