Patio Cover Designs

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.
