will this support a snow load?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
This is built in Seattle, I would be nervous about a large snow load bending the plastic panels. Here in Seattle, I have seen it with 6" of wet snow and it has done fine.

There are little metal side clip angles on each side to hold down each rafter to the cross beams.

I live in Miami and want to install a clear polycarbonate roof over my pergola. Are you by chance located in Miami, FL? If not, can you offer any suggestions on how to find architects or contractors who know how to work with this material. I've been trying to find someone for some time now. Thank you in advance for ANY help you can offer.

Iam from Seattle, This material came from a company called Crystalite, if you called them they maybe able to connect you to a dealer and an installer..

We clean it in the spring for the summer and in the fall after the leaves have fallen. We bought a window squeegee with an extra long handle that we use to push the leaves off with and then clean the panels.

What is the material used for the roof.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Hi Westmerch, This roof faces north so it is never in the sun. It was designed to let as much light as possible into this back yard area. If it had faced into the sun we would have probably used a more tinted panel. Being as open as it is, it would probably not get too hot, and would be a pleasant place to be under in Sunny weather.

They were acrilic panels, In Seattle the company 'Crystallite" makes and sells the panels and connectors needed to make it water proof.

Did you need an ESR report to get approvals? If so, did Crystallite provide one? thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Sculptures in the Landscape
A statue can welcome visitors and give a hint as to what awaits inside. Also, I had to include these adorable people posing in front. I think the statue and the architecture are working for them!
This last photo acknowledges that translucent surfaces need not be limited to vertical planes. This roof for a small room and meditation spot is capped by translucent panels above wood members. It softens the light from above, while also allowing the adjacent tree to be sensed. More: High Design With Solar Panels Modern or Contemporary: What's the Difference? Bathe in the Light of Clerestory Windows
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Small Wonders
An opuscule doesn't have to be costly. A simple box like this can make a grand gesture.
