Patio Covers

Patio covers are a great way to improve your outdoor living space. They provide protection from the sun and rain, and they can also be used to create a shaded area where you can relax or entertain guests. Patio covers can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, and plastic, so you can choose one that best suits your needs and budget.

Patio Covers Types

Wood patio covers are perfect for those with a traditional or cottage-style home. They are made of wood, which adds to the style of your property. If you live in an area where extreme weather is common, wood will hold up better than most other types of materials.

Shingles are very popular with homeowners who want their patio cover to match their house’s exterior. Shingles come in many styles and patterns, so you should have no problem finding one that suits your taste. They also offer a higher level of protection from the sun and rain than other types of covers do. The only downside is that they can be quite expensive and time-consuming to install.

Metal patio covers, on the other hand, can be installed and manufactured quickly. They are perfect for people who want to get the most out of their outdoor space without spending a lot of money or time on home renovations. Some types of metal patio covers, such as aluminum, do not require any maintenance at all.

Plastic patio covers are among the most affordable options available today. If you are on a tight budget but you still want the look of a wooden or metal cover, plastic may be the best choice for you. Like wood covers, plastic ones are available with shingles.

Patio Cover Styles

Patio covers come in three styles: flat, gabled, and hipped.

The flat style is square-shaped with a low profile. It is the cheapest of the three to construct, because it requires minimal materials. It is also the easiest to install.

A gabled patio cover has sloping sides that are much higher in the middle than they are at either end. The gable ends are typically adorned with decorative trim that adds to the overall style of the patio cover. The gabled style is very popular, and it can add a lot of character to your home and property.

The hipped style has four sloping sides that meet at a central point, like the roof on a house with four dormers. This structure gives it more depth than other styles do. You can even choose between a curved and a straight structure. The hipped style is more expensive to construct, so it may be best for homeowners who want a top-of-the-line patio cover.

 

Pergolas

A pergola is an outdoor structure that has pillars or columns to provide support and space for climbing plants. They are typically found in backyards, although there is no reason you cannot install one in front of your home if that is where you want it. Pergolas are most commonly constructed using wood, metal, or plastic.

Pergola Styles

The straight style has four pillars and beams arranged vertically. You can include an optional pergola roof to provide shade for the area below. This style is simple, clean-lined, and very affordable. The downside is that it does not offer much in the way of privacy or shelter from the sun or rain.

The wave style has four posts, but the beams are arched to create a more open feel than the straight style offers. The design causes them to look as though they were made from branches, which is perfect for those who want their pergola to complement the rest of their garden’s design.

The oval style is similar to the straight type, but it has four arches that look like those found on a gothic-style church rather than rectangular beams and pillars. The arched shape gives it a unique appearance, and it can stand up well to wind if you install the beams correctly. This style is more time-consuming and expensive than other pergola designs, so keep that in mind as you weigh your options.

Your Deck Pros offers a free consultation for anyone who wants a patio cover or pergola installed by our team.

Pergolas Materials

Pergola beams and roofing can be made from a number of different materials, including:

  • Wood – This is the most affordable option and it requires very little maintenance. You can choose between pressure-treated pine and cedar for added durability.
  • Metal – Metal pergolas are durable and affordable, but they do require occasional repainting.
  • Vinyl – This material is one of the most popular options, and it has a wood-like appearance that will complement your home’s exterior nicely. It requires no maintenance except for regular washing with soap and water.

Combining multiple materials can give you a more luxurious look at a low price. For example, an aluminum pergola has an upscale feel at a fraction of the cost of other materials.
