Has anyone roofed a concrete patio?

I thought you'd be the boss? Jokes aside, it will be a lot cooler under the metal roof and, I'd think the noise would be minimal unless the windows were open. Definitely a lot less work to install. But, I hate shingles so I'm biased
I'm just the chief cook and bottle washer. He's the breadwinner and head of the household. I'm okay with that - it allowed me to stay home and raise our kids.

I'd go with metal. Just be sure to put some bubble wrap underneath it or you'll have sweat dripping.
I agree, Metal is way lighter, and will tolerate a shallower pitch.

Ive also seen pergolas with fabric for shade that look pretty good if not screening in. If screening in you’re going to want a roof.

Definitely want a solid roof - I've got a thing about sitting out on a porch in the rain.... Reminds me of my daddy who's been gone almost 20 years now.
