Options for Patios

As stated, there are different options available for a patio design. More than there being different styles to choose from though, there are also options for materials to choose from as well for patios. Mainly materials that can be applied to a patio roofing, which, depending on the service, there are three types you can choose from. These options are the following:

Heat Reflective Roofing

This roofing material holds a built-in feature that helps protect your patio from any harsh sunlight/heat. You’ll find that this type of roofing material will work best for either pitched or flat roofs. In terms of style, you can have applied with either an attractive finish to match your patio or have it be fully engineered panels that can withstand the harshest of weather

Composite Insulated Roofing

Generally containing a polystyrene core that provides a sleek, modern patio roof with minimal to no heat transfer, this roofing material delivers a cooler outdoor area even on the hottest days. In addition, there are different colours, density or styles that you can choose from depending on the service you decide to work with. 

Pergola / Louver Style Roofing

By choosing this type of roofing you essentially get an open-air roof with your choice of how much sunlight comes through and high ventilation. The main downside with this type of roofing is that it is prone to sun exposure. If your area does not face a high variety in weather and you are open to having your patio with an exposed roof with a louvre-like style, then you’ll find different options with pergola roofing. 

When it comes to the options you can have with patio designs, the popular choices include the following:

Conventional/Traditional: A general type of patio design that has a flat roof and standard pillars while attached to the home which stands well against different weather conditions. 

Flyover: Features approximately 700mm of extra head height across the entire patio roof, this design ensures high ventilation but will need a consultation on whether your property can handle this kind of patio structure. 

Gable: The rafters for this design are cut at angles and meet in the middle of the construction at a ridge which you can have to reflect the structure of your roof. You can also have the addition of  ‘wings’, otherwise known as a flat section on either side of the gable for better waterproofing. 

Skydome: Compared to other patio designs, skydome patios have three features that make them unique. Its main feature is its unique ventilation system which cools your patio by allowing hot air to be drawn out. Other than this, it can let more natural light in and be incorporated into other designs. 

With all of these different options that you can choose from for your patio, you will need to refer to a professional service that will help you determine what patio would work best for your property.
