Outdoor pergolas are structures that can be used to cover a patio, garden, or any other area within your backyard. Pergolas are super useful for covering spaces while in the same vein leaving the space exposed to natural elements and nature itself. A lot of homeowners tend to love the structures of pergolas but most soon discover that they need something that is a little more protective from harsh weather elements.
Popular roofing materials that are super useful in providing additional layers of protection for your structure includes plastic, metal, fabric and fiberglass. Here are the types of pergolas we offer at Elevate roofing.
• Fabric Deck Pergola Covers
Fabric deck pergola covers offer another beautiful option when it comes to structure covering. We offer a beautiful array of fabrics you can choose for your pergola cover. A number of these covers offer protection from harmful ultra violet rays, which will not only control the amount of light that seeps in through your roof but also preserve all of your outdoor furniture.
If you as a homeowner don’t want to be distracted from the beauty of wooden pergolas, a clear material such as plastic or fiberglass will be the best solution to the problem. Some materials are easy to change, especially when you get tired of the look or color, while others can be difficult to remove after installation. Not to worry. At Elevate roofing, we know that the level of permanency is entirely up to you and our experts are available to discuss all options available.
• Metal Pergola Roof
These are adjudged to be the longest lasting, and this makes them more permanent than a lot of other roofing materials. One thing that sets metal roofing aside is that it can be sized to fit any size or shape structure.
Steel is a very durable and sturdy option though it may prove to be an expensive choice sometimes. A tin or aluminum pergola cover will provide a soothing and beautiful sight to behold.

Fiberglass and plastic pergola roofs are fairly inexpensive and durable. They are also more permanent in comparison to other types of materials. Fiberglass and plastics are designed to give space for exposure of light though they also quite combine the function of keeping out harmful Ultra violet rays quite amazingly with their primary function.

Patio pavers are very pleasing to the eyes and come in numerous colors, shapes and surface finishes. More so, they have a flexible design and that makes it easy for you to customize a pattern that suits your needs and ideas best.
There are also a number of conditions that you should put into consideration when deciding the stone or concrete patio to use and that includes the following.
There is a need to put safety first when you are considering any outdoor home improvement and we take safety very seriously at Elevate roofing. Due to the continuous slab feature, stamped concrete has a tendency to be more slippery when wet and that could be a safety concern, especially if you live in an environment with frequent rainfall. If you do, you can choose to safeguard it with protectants.
Pavers also pose some risk too. With the settling and possible heaving, pavers can become uneven and may cause a severe walking incident.
