I need some roofing ideas, I have a pegola over my patio and would like suggestions on roofing. I currently have vinyl lattice and would rather a solid roof to stop rain and block most/all the sun. I have looked at zinc, plastic/vinyl sheets, the material used on our roof etc. I want something that looks good but not that expensive and something I can DIY. Thanks, pic for ref.

Yes, its covered with vinyl lattice, but I want to remove that and add a solid roof. There's flashing installed already but I would have to add some wood to create a pitch. No snow.

We're doing a pergola/car port and I came up with adding strips of vinyl between the 2x12 "joists" in such a way that the strip is attached at the topmost part of the joist at one end and the bottom-most part at the other. When viewed from the depth/board side of the pergola these strips won't show.

Another suggestion but it involves fabric. This company makes the panels. Or you could give up the pergola look altogether and add a solid roof.
