Finally, there is a retractable fabric roof made by ShadeFX.  It’s called the “Topside” mounting option and it covers the pergola from above. The system is difficult to see when retracted because it also uses the patented single track actuator. When extended, it is above the rafters and woodwork, so you see all the intricacies of a beautiful wood pergola, while getting retractable protection from sun and rain. The best part of retractable pergola roofs on top of the pergola is that they allow for accessories like speakers, fans and TV’s to be mounted and to work in concert with the canopy.


My husband came up with a brilliant idea. On top of the pergola, underneath the canopy, we purchased two white vinyl lattice pieces 7.5ft x 7.5ft from Home Depot, and attached them with plastic ties to each end to hold them in place. We added a little slant to one side with the lattices so that the rain would run off more towards the outside of the pergola. We have a koi pond underneath the pergola and room for a couple of chairs to enjoy watching them. While we do need the rain, it can be a bit challenging to have it drip down with the bulging, water pregnant canopy, not to mention stressing the poor Koi fish out. Maybe this will work for you

One option I became aware of recently is a clear plastic (plexiglass, acrylic, lexan or polycarbonate) cover that rests on top of the rafters. This provides protection from the rain but nothing else. It also shows the dirt and debris that collects up there and does nothing for the aesthetics that the relaxing and stylish retreat a pergola should have. This is an inexpensive option that can run as low as about two dollars a square foot.


A novel solution that I find a little commercial for my taste is the louvered roof systems out of Australia. These systems are metal and protect from sun and rain, and though they not retractable, they are adjustable by tilting the louvers from fully open to fully closed. I have seen them at home shows but have never seen one on a home in North America, so I can’t say they come with any user endorsements that I know of. Prices I recall from the shows run around twenty dollars a square foot and the contraption needs a full box frame to go on top of your pergola… not very complementary.


Houzz user kgibbs says of this sunroom, "The polycarbonate clear roof is holding up very well here in frigid, snowy Minnesota. It's an unheated, screened porch that we are able to use from about April till November.

Chooose the level of transparency that’s right for you. Clear polycarnonate allows the most light to pass, then Bronze and finally Opal Ice. Our Bronze tint glazing sheets are very popular for patio covers. In any case, all sheets feature the same special UV Absorption and Protection Layer, which provides long-lasting high stability against damaging UV radiation.
