A pitched roof pergola is one of the most popular types of pergolas in the world. Not only does this type of pergola look fantastic, there are many other benefits to building a pitched roof pergola over a flat roof pergola.
1. A pitched roof pergola creates the appeal that there is more space under the roof and that it is higher.
2. Pitched roof pergolas can provide a little more protection from the sun than a flat roof pergola.
3. Pitched roof pergolas give a sense of a more enclosed room as if you have an additional area for your house.
4. Hot air rises to the apex of a pitched roof so therefore is cooler where you're sitting.
5. You can attach a water tank to the gutter of the pergola and catch the rain water.
