Your patio is a great place to relax with family, enjoy meals outdoors and entertain guests – when the weather is perfect. When it’s not, we’re often forced to go back indoors to be more comfortable.
Want to help maximize the enjoyment of your patio even during harsh weather? Installing a patio roof can help make that happen!
The Benefits of Patio Roofs
Besides keeping you and your guests protected from the weather, patio roofs help keep your patio furniture, flooring and other possessions sheltered. This helps reduce wear and tear, maintenance requirements and extends the time until a replacement is needed.
Patio roofs are more stable, too. By being permanently affixed, you don’t need to worry about retracting your awning in high wind or other inclement weather. They do not require being dissembled during the winter months, either.
Aluminum Patio Roofs
Aluminum patio roofs are commonly chosen due to their durability, lightweight and flexibility in design. Aluminum’s high water and weather resistance make it suitable to tolerate severe weather and dampness without creating any extensive wear and tear. The strong material can effectively reflect heat away from your patio area and does not rot.
Choose from many different designs, styles and colours using our customizable Duraform aluminum patio roof systems. Designed to fit around existing structures such as chimneys or bays, this type of aluminum patio roof is durable and does not attract insects. To create a unique, complementary look, apply a faux finish on the patio roof’s aluminum cover.
Although priced more expensively than other patio roof materials, aluminum’s durability will provide you with years of comfort. A louvered roof by Stobag might be perfect for your patio needs, as the aluminum slats in the roof are adjustable.
Acrylic Patio Roofs
Give your backyard a makeover with a long-lasting, translucent patio roof! Able to withstand harsh weather, acrylic patio roofs allow the entrance of natural light while blocking up to 75% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Besides extreme heat, these roofs are well equipped to handle harsh weather, including heavy rain, sleet, and snow.
Available in a variety of tints and finishes, the acrylic patio roofs we supply are always low maintenance and easy to clean. Highly resistant to damage, they remain aesthetically appealing for many years following the installation.
Tips to Keep in Mind When Selecting a Patio Roof Material
To choose the best material option for your patio roof, you’ll want to consider your expectations for its performance along with your design tastes.
For example, if you want to see the sky above you while relaxing on your patio, then acrylic material will be more appealing than aluminum. However, it will require more maintenance to keep clean and translucent – and shouldn’t be located near tree limbs that could create scratches.
Both aluminum and acrylic provide a variety of options when it comes to textures, colours, and styles. Choose an option that complements your home and adds to its unique personality.
