Installing a roof over a patio area will provide shade from the sun and UV rays and can also insulate the building in the case of an enclosed patio. Patio roofing comes in many forms, from fabric awnings or metal roofs extended over hard outdoor surfaces to skillion roof, dome roof patios, gable, pyramid and solar span roofs designed with considerations such as drainage and ventilation in mind.
The size of your patio may determine the type of roof that will work best, as will your local climate and how much use you plan to get out of your patio.
Semi-enclosed or enclosed patios
If you prefer your patio to be open to the elements, a semi-enclosed patio will offer all the shade you need without making you feel confined, using patio screens rather than solid walls to let in fresh air as well as keeping out mosquitoes.
If you desire an insulated patio to extend your living space however, a fully enclosed patio will offer greater privacy and security. Choosing long-lasting, low maintenance roofing materials such as Colorbond and Zincalume steel will enhance the patio’s insulation and help you stay cool in summer and warm in winter.
