Timber trellis in Singapore can often be a need for Singaporean residents who have open outdoor balconies or rooftops. For functional outdoor spaces independent of the weather, there is a need to have a shelter that is both strong and at the same time still provides that “open” ambience. Wooden trellis therefore allows an extension of usable space in the house. To ensure complete protection against the rain and any possible falling objects, especially for lower ground condominium residents, an outdoor wooden trellis is often covered by polycarbonate.Such wood trellis is often referred to as polycarbonate trellis.
The installation of trellis starts with the varnishing of the wood posts and beams. Once varnished, the standing timber posts, normally Chengal wood in the size of 95 mm x 95 mm, will be erected as the foundation of the trellis. Drilled onto the ground, these long-standing wood posts would provide a robust foundation for the wood beams and polycarbonate roof on top. Outdoor trellis would typically have horizontal timber beams supporting the polycarbonate roof; such beams are usually spaced regularly at two-foot intervals, although adjustments can be discussed. At times, standing posts are not necessary if there are enclosed walls for the wood beams to be installed onto, hanging in the air. Such arrangement would allow more space under thewood roof as there are no longer any standing posts.
Once all the wood work is done, the installation of the polycarbonate roofingmay commence on top of the timber roof. Our valued clients have the options of several colours of polycarbonate they can choose from. Some prefer light colours to have a bright ambience while some others prefer the darker colours to avoid sunlight. Many clients would want to install useful outdoor accessories like lightings and fans on our timber trellis, which is never a problem.
Polycarbonate is thermoplastic polymer, as such a flexible and strong material. It is very lightweight and has a high threshold of resisting any weather like hot summers or cold winters. The durability and more lifetime of the material make it applicable on the places like industrial uses, decks, pools etc. Polycarbonate roofing can bear high forces and are not easily breakable which makes them the obvious choice to be in use for the industrial purpose. Polycarbonate is a good choice for those who prefer sunlight or partial sunlight into their outdoor space.
Composite Panel Roofing
Composite panel provides complete shelter from sunlight and as such a popular choice for heavy-traffic outdoor trellis. Its non-transparent colour makes it more lasting and harder to get stained. Composite panel has a very strong resistance towards heat and as such is the best choice for tropical climate like Singapore.
Wood Roof / Timber Roof
As the name suggest, this outdoor roofing is done with wood structure. Wood as a roofing structure provides strength as good as steel and at the same time adds nature beauty element to the roof. The wood support used for timber roofing is big, strong and sturdy, mounted to the ground or walls. In urban Singapore context where land is scarce and expensive, timber roofing is a good option to have more usable space in your house.If you live in a landed house or a penthouse, timber roof is one idea you may want to consider.
