A pergola is a great addition to any backyard. A pergola can be made from metal, wood or plastic. Most pergolas have large support beams and cross beams on top. Instead of using cross beams across the top of your pergola, add lattice pergola roof. Lattice pergola roof can create beams of sunlight and areas of shade, while still adding style and design to your outdoor living space. Lattice pergola roofs are attractive and sometimes intricate architectural constructions that can open up a pergola to sunlight and open air. Whether the lattice is beautifully curved and carved or simple and rustic, it creates an atmosphere of intimacy that gives you a sense of restful privacy on your pergola. You can design and build your own lattice roof to accent the architecture of your home.
