A Custom Cover For Your Residential Patio

An arched wooden arbor, a lattice-covered pergola, or a wooden pavilion will turn your outdoor space into a shady retreat that you will yearn to relax in. If you would like to have a custom outdoor patio cover designed for your property, use your patio's dimensions, aesthetic properties, and the manner in which you will be using the patio to help you choose a covering.

Sturdy And Permanent Or Retractable And Mobile

A large structure that is constructed of wood and that contains posts that will be anchored on your property will provide a permanent solution to the bright sunlight that has been making it unbearable to spend long stints on your patio. A pavilion style will consist of the wood variety that you prefer. A series of beams will be used to construct a roof and sides for the structure.

Choose a peaked rooftop that is similar to the one on your home or a flat one that possesses a louver design, which will provide ventilation and filtered sunlight. If you would like to reserve the shade for one portion of the patio and would like to leave another portion of the patio uncovered, choose an arched wooden arbor or a lattice-covered pergola and have either covering installed along one side of the patio.

There are permanent coverings that can be built into an existing patio and mobile setups that may include a retracting feature, which will allow a cover to be opened and closed. A cover can also have a skylight installed in it to provide lighting without the intense glare. A glass pane that is tinted will allow ample light in but will eliminate the harshness that is a result of bright sunlight.

Installed By A Professional Or Assembled By Yourself

When you hire a contractor to design a custom cover, provide details about the attributes that you would like the cover to possess and the construction materials that you prefer. Details, such as how wide or long wooden beams will be, the shape of the covering, and any decorative features that you would like included in the design should be addressed. Relay information about paint, varnish, or another protective covering that will be used to preserve the materials that are used in the cover's design.

When your plans are drawn up, look them over and decide if you are ready for the construction of the cover to begin or if you would like to make some changes. Your new cover can be installed on-site or you can request that the pieces of the cover are shipped directly to you so that you can perform the assembly at your own pace. The installation of a smaller covering that is not complicated in design may be something that you can confidently tackle on your own.
