Why Homeowners Choose Covered Decks

Covering your custom deck offers numerous benefits, making it a valuable investment. You enjoy similar advantages to individuals with covered patios.

Gone are the days of being at the mercy of unpredictable weather. Protection from the sun, rain, and the little snow we get lets you comfortably enjoy your deck throughout the year, maximizing its usefulness and worth. You can screen in your deck, creating a screened room.

Covered decks form warm and welcoming atmospheres, ideal for spending quality time with loved ones. They provide opportunities to design lounging or dining areas, opening up more possibilities to incorporate amenities such as an outdoor kitchen, bar, or fire pit.

A covered deck prolongs the lifespan of outdoor furniture and deck materials, like composite deck boards, providing even more protection against fading, warping, or decay. This diminishes the need for repairs and replacements, resulting in fewer maintenance expenses.

Well-crafted covered decks can blend with your home’s architecture, enhancing its visual appeal and connecting your indoor space and outdoor deck.

Covered Deck Ideas

Consider how flat or gable designs can impact your outdoor space when choosing a deck cover. Our team will help you select the best option based on your preferences, home style, and surroundings.

Families can customize covered decks with various materials, colors, and additional features like ceiling fans and lights. Our top priority is maintaining your home’s aesthetic while accentuating its best qualities.

Here are some things to consider for project involving covered decks:

  • Roofing Materials: Choose from options like shingles that match your house, transparent polycarbonate for natural light, durable metal roofing, or retractable awnings for flexibility.

  • Ceiling Styles: Opt for a vaulted ceiling to add spaciousness, a beadboard for a traditional look, or exposed rafters for a rustic feel. Skylights can also be incorporated to provide more natural light.

  • Lighting: Install recessed LED lights, pendant lighting, or a chandelier for elegance. Outdoor ceiling fans with lights can provide both illumination and air circulation.

  • Outdoor Curtains or Screens: Add curtains for privacy, protection from the elements, and a cozy, room-like feel. Motorized screens can offer convenience and insect protection.

  • Heating Options: To extend the usability of your deck into the cooler months, consider built-in electric heaters, a fireplace, or a fire pit table.

Cover Options for Your Patio

When looking to cover your classic patio, you have several options to make it reflect your personal preferences:

  • Solid Roofs: A solid roof constructed from materials such as wood, aluminum, or galvanized steel provides a durable and permanent solution for patio coverage. This option is ideal for homeowners seeking to create an all-weather outdoor space protected from the elements. Wood offers a natural, warm aesthetic that blends seamlessly with outdoor environments, while aluminum and galvanized steel provide modern durability and low maintenance. A solid roof can also be equipped with lighting, fans, and heating elements to enhance comfort.
  • Slatted Roofs: A slatted roof, often made from the same materials as solid roofs, offers a balance between sun and shade. This design allows for ventilation and a moderate amount of sunlight to filter through, creating a comfortable outdoor environment protected from direct sun exposure. The slatted design can add architectural interest and dynamic light patterns to your patio space.
  • Pergolas: Pergolas stand out for their versatility and aesthetic appeal. They feature a lattice roof supported by columns, offering partial shade with a distinctive architectural style. Pergolas can be constructed from wood, vinyl, or metal, bringing a different vibe to your outdoor space. They can be adorned with climbing plants or vines, adding a natural element and additional shade as the plants grow.
  • Retractable Awnings: Retractable awnings provide the perfect solution for those seeking flexibility. They can be extended to offer shade during the hottest parts of the day and retracted to enjoy the stars at night. Available in a wide range of colors and fabrics, retractable awnings can be manually operated or motorized for added convenience, allowing you to easily adjust your patio’s exposure to the elements.
  • Patio Umbrellas: Patio umbrellas are an excellent option for targeted shade and portability. They come in various sizes, shapes, and colors, making matching them with your patio furniture and decor easy. Umbrellas can be moved around as needed, offering flexible shading options for seating areas, dining tables, or poolside lounges.
  • Strategically Planted Trees: Incorporating nature into your patio design, strategically planted trees can provide natural, eco-friendly shade. Selecting trees with broad canopies can create a roof-like structure over time, offering a serene and picturesque outdoor space. This option requires more foresight and patience, as trees take time to grow, but the result is a beautifully shaded area that blends harmoniously with the natural landscape.
  • Shade Sails: Some people use shade sails to provide shade and UV protection from the sun. They tend to be a more cost-effective option. However, they require taut tension to function as designed; otherwise, the fabric will flap in the wind.

Each of these patio cover options has pros and cons. We can help you decide which will best suit your specific patio.

Because these pergolas come equipped with adjustable louvers that can be tilted to various angles, homeowners can control the amount of sunlight or shade over their deck or patio.
