The lean-to, or one sided roof pergola, is not only a great outdoor dry space, but also in-expensive. They can be sheeted with metal and gutters to collect rain water. Matt says “the Suntuf clear poly-carbonate corrugated roofing panels are perfect for covering a patio deck. They stand up to the weather and let the light in.”
Pergolas don’t always have to attach to a building, they can be free standing within an inch. This makes them easy to move if you sell the house, and keeps your wall intact.
We can build a pergola for the same price as a small shed. This area can be used all year round, providing an outdoor living room for storing patio furniture out of the weather.
