Sonja Mairenn. Patio & Pergola. June 22nd , 2017.
You don't need to spend much money pimping your patio, but if you decide to add a new roof or replace the entire thing, give us a call!
Owners of this auto-tilt model have a complete range of tilt positions at their fingertips and a resilient, simple to use umbrella frame that will bring years of shade enjoyment. The Beach Sail is far better since it provides much more shade (64 square feet), has a wonderful sand anchor for the pole, contains a sand shovel for the sand bags, greater SPF 50 protection, 11 month longer warranty, simple to carry/set-up and it is made in America.
An alternative to a complete awning is a shade sail. Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.
If willing to experiment and build a Patio Cover, hammer out questions as to why you need a Patio Cover, for what purpose, whether it would be painted or made with wood, prefabricated aluminum or PVC, and if permission is required from state or city authorities. Remember that a patio is an extension of the house, generally not more than 12 feet and single-storied. The patio can be fully covered or have no cover. No special skills are required for building a Patio Cover except co-coordinating your patience, dimension of area, number of wood or aluminum panels and material required.
