Patio covers are a must have for everyone. They cool down the home during the summer months and allow you to step outside during the rain without getting drenched. But, with so many patio cover designs, which to build is the question.Typically your options are “lattice” or “solid.” That’s the first step in your decision making. Of course, you can combine both patterns and build a combination patio and have the best of both worlds. Of course, if you decide on a lattice patio cover, you may apply a plastic covering to shield you from the rain. Lattice patios are great for those who want mild protection from the sun or enjoy hanging flowers from beams. Patio enclosures provide an extra room without having to build a new addition. You have the option of different wall thicknesses depending on how much insulation you desire.
Whether you go with aluminum or wood you could add recessed lighting or a ceiling fan. This is perfect for night or warm days when you can turn on the light outside!Wood patio covers are the traditional choice and give the home an organic feel.
