Need help with covering Pergola with fiberglass panels
Hello fellow gardenweb members.
We have a pergola over a cement patio and I have been thinking about adding clear fiberglass panels over the top to:
1. Cover for rain/leaves. We never get to sit out on the patio because of the mess the neighbors trees leave on our patio. It is very unsightly and I have problems keeping it cleaned off.
2. We would sit out on the patio more often, but it is in the sun most of the day. While the clear won't give us shade, it would be nice to be able to sit out there when it is raining.
3. I wanted to use the clear fiberglass because it won't be noticeable. I believe if I put a real top on the pergola, it would be considered as a porch and I would have to pay more for property taxes.
Any help/comments would be appreciated.
