A patio is a great value adder to any home. Whether it’s for your own comfort, an extra living space or an investment for the future, there’s so many reasons why the people of Perth love their patios. 

A patio is as personalised as the home and homeowner themselves, so of course, there’s a range of patio designs available.

Aluminium patios 

Aluminium patios are a popular choice for Perth patios due to their lightweight properties and resistance to rust and corrosion. 

It’s a very popular choice with coastal locations because of its anti-corrosion capabilities. However, aluminium patios and pergolas are often the most expensive material. 

Let’s look at the pros and cons of an aluminium patio: 

  • Pros – lightweight, anti-rust and corrosion, and can be Colorbond painted to match your home. 
  • Cons – can be expensive but doesn’t have to be if you choose the right patio builders. 

Talk to One Stop Patio Shop or visit our patio showroom in Anketell to see what options are available when you choose an aluminium patio. 


Steel patios 

Colorbond Steel is arguably the most popular choice for many expertly crafted and installed patios. 

It’s easy to get steel and aluminium patios confused, but the main difference is steel is more robust. 

Heavier or free-standing constructions are better off with a steel patio. 


Let’s discover the pros and cons of a steel patio in greater detail below: 

  • Pros – Simple and straightforward installation, super strong and durable, powder-coated or painted steel patio options are available and are overall, budget-friendly. 
  • Cons – If not treated with a zinc coating at installation, it can be prone to rust and corrosion. However, you don’t have to worry about this when you choose One Stop Patio Shop, a quality patio company in Perth.

Let’s discover the pros and cons of a timber patio in greater detail below: 

  • Pros – Cheap and readily available, many design capabilities, resistant to sand and salt.
