As a homeowner, you can put as little or as much thought as you want into choosing and installing patio covers. However, it might be in your best interest to invest in a well-thought-out patio cover choice.
To spare you from the tedious selection process, pick your patio cover based on one thing: your home’s architectural style. Once installed, patio covers become a permanent part of your home, so make sure the style does not clash with the existing architecture.
There are numerous designs available on the market, but these three patio cover designs are the most popular:
Solid Patio Cover
Solid patio covers offer excellent and complete protection from strong rains, intense heat and heavy snow. Enjoy the benefits of an extended living space under the shade that a solid patio cover offers. If you want an enhanced outdoor experience without the heat from the sun, then solid patio covers are perfect for you and your home. The solid features of this design make it best for traditional homes.
These free-standing structures are supported by columns or posts, making them appear quaint and appealing. Pergolas are typically constructed as an independent structure, so they go well with any architectural style. They can either provide contrast, or tie the whole style together. Keep in mind that you might need a permit to build a pergola.
Not a fan of solid and bulky patio covers? Lattice patio covers allow small strips of light to stream in, while still providing shade. Due to its simple and linear components, this design best complements contemporary homes. For those who prefer the appearance of wood but not its upkeep, Alumawood lattice patio covers are a good alternative.
