I purchased one from this site, and was very pleased with it. Not very expensive, and they custom make it to your specs.

My last house had a pergola. To block the sun, my wife bought burlap fabric from a fabric store and sewed simple curtains. We'd hang them up in the Spring and take them down in the Fall.

Built A Deck


Hey Splinter,
When you go to attach the shade cloth on the roof of the pergula, buy some furring strips (1x2 lumber) from any home improvement center or lumber yard. Every place the shade cloth passes over a wood member of the pergula, install a furring strip flat over the fabric. Use 2" minimum length nails or 1 1/2" minimum length wood screws to sandwich the fabric between the furring strip and the pergula structure.
If you need additional help, let me know. Good luck!
