The gazebo system and its location on the plot depends only on the personal preferences of the owners and is not regulated by practically any regulatory acts. It is possible to come up with a structure for it, so it is necessary that it creates the only building composition with a dwelling. Here, everyone thinks either independently, or asks for help from the designers, as a last resort, you can look through the photo on the Internet. In order for such a "house" to look attractive and aesthetically pleasing, it is necessary to work on its design, while not forgetting that the roof should be lightweight, and built taking into account the weather conditions inherent in the area.
Features of the choice of design
- It is necessary to pay attention to those cases when the construction of a flat roof is planned. We must remember that it will linger on the snow.
- If done with a large bias, then it can not withstand the pressure of a strong wind.
- When the barbecue or barbecue is located inside the gazebo, all elements should be perfectly protected from ignition. It is best to use fireproof materials - this is tile or slate. In addition, you must install a separate chimney.
Roofs for gazebos are completely different:
- single tier,
For rectangular and square constructions it is suggested to use iron truss.
Valmovova. In another way it is called chetyrehskatnaya - two slopes are made in the form of a trapezoid, while others have the shape of a triangle. In its manufacture using inclined and wall rafters.
Often, as conceived by the master, difficult combined systems are produced. There are even bell-shaped and spherical types of roofs.
There are also the most labor-intensive in implementation, for example, a lean-to design. Two walls serve as support: one above, the other below.
All roof structures have basic components: the carrier system and the roofing. The rafter system is used as the main supporting element, which accounts for the main part of the roof load. After that, with the support of the crates, the load is evenly redistributed to all support columns. Do not just forget about the design features of various types and forms. For example, a gazebo with a shed roof has the ability to perfectly protect from oblique rainfall, for this you only need to increase the length and reduce the height of the overhang of the roof.
Roofing materials are divided into two types: hard and soft. Hard type materials are:
- polymeric plates.
Soft coatings should be laid on a more rigid, strong base made of plywood and chipboard, or on a small crate. Soft coatings include:
- usual ruberoid.
The characteristics of the material from which the roof will be made are also very important, for example, a roof made of a profile sheet or metal tile will not have soundproofing qualities. As a result, the sound of a shower in an arbor with a similar roof will become quite noticeable. In order to hear the sound of a shower, you need to purposefully choose bitumen roofing materials with high sound-absorbing properties.
An excellent option is the roof of polycarbonate. In this case, it may have a dome shape. This material looks quite extraordinary due to its own transparency. In addition, it has many other positive properties:
- high strength;
- compliance - it is easy to work with it, you can perform any coverage, including a very difficult form;
- it is light and has low thermal conductivity;
- perfectly harmonizes with the base, made of any material.
Note! The roof is made of polycarbonate, withstands large temperature drops, it is reliable and durable. However, among the advantages there is one drawback - polycarbonate is combustible. As a result, it cannot be used in buildings with a brazier or a stove of a different type.
The roof for the pergola on the basis of ondulin is quite demanded. He has a pretty pretty look; and, apart from reliability, its undeniable advantages include ease of installation. To work with him is enough only a saw or a hammer.
For large arbors, you must choose tile roofs. This is quite a costly method, but the result will satisfy you. Shingles are laid using a single overlap technique - to obtain a single-layer coating, or a double overlap technique that forms a two or three-layer roof. This option is beautiful, but it weighs heavily on the weight of the structure, as a result of which it is used infrequently. The only defect of the tiled roof is that it periodically becomes overgrown with moss, therefore it needs constant cleaning. But this is not so significant a disadvantage, because the pros are much more important:
- absolute environmental friendliness
- perfect protection against moisture and rain.
The roof can also be covered with shingles or, as it is also called, shingles - these are boards that are made from spruce, Siberian cedar, ash or fir, as it looks, can be viewed in the photo. Gont becomes quite popular due to environmental friendliness, durability, as well as external attractiveness.
