I have recently built a free-standing patio covering that backs up to the back of our house. It is approx 24 x 14. I'm having trouble deciding what to put as a covering.
First I thought the Ondura roofing (http://ondura.com/?gclid=CNSyxcGctc0CFUZrfgodkKMO7w) but bad reviews have scared me away.
Then I thought some translucent corrugated roofing. But not sure whether it will provide sufficient shade. The point of this patio is to get us out of the summer heat! Does anyone have experience with this type of roofing? I know it comes in different "shades" but will it provide good shade, or am I better off going with a solid metal/pvc roofing?
Also, will the corrugated pvc type covering last? I don't want to be replacing the roof after a few years.
