Your deck can be a gateway to live, but there will be times when it is raining or when you want to lie outside when the sun is at its most cruel. At such times, the partial deck roof or deck shade will make a nice addition. One of the simplest deck hatches is a pergolon – open beam system supported by poles. They are usually produced from the same materials as your upholstery and handrails, so there is visual harmony. Under pergolas, others do not protect from the rain, but they can give a feeling of shadow and a shelter. The plants in the beams can grow and you can hang up fireworks for those going to the bridge.
