Insulated Patio Cover

This Nashville couple was looking for way to reclaim the use of their rear exterior patio from the sun, wind, and rain.  The best answer was to supply and install an aluminum patio cover.  An insulated cover was selected by the home owners to reduce heat during the   summer and to make it easier to add a wall system later.

The beauty of the insulated cover is that it does easily allow for the screen wall system with kick plates to be added post construction.  The insulated cover also allows for electrical wiring to be run in the pre-made channels for the installation of ceiling fans and lights.  These covers by themselves do an excellent job of reducing heat transfer to the patio area and provide excellent shelter from the wind and rain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Preparation is essential for a good install of the roof system.  The existing rain gutters need to be removed prior to installation of the high-quality structural aluminum cover and reinstalled once they are custom fabricated to fit to the new patio cover.  These covers are designed to never rust, warp, crack, rot or become damaged by insects.

Vinna’s Patio Cover

Brandon’s mother-in-law had a beautiful outdoor pool and patio, but the sun was relentless during the summer months.  She wanted a cover that would both shelter from the sun and provide an escape from sudden rain showers.  The design included 10′ foot ceilings and no exterior walls to enhance the open, airy feel.

Ceiling fans were installed with with light kits to allow for late evening entertaining as well.  Dry-stack stone bases were topped with stone caps.  White 10″ fiberglass columns matching the color of the cover give an iconic look to this outdoor entertaining area, while sharply contrasting the color of the natural stone.  The insulated roof panels truly provided a cool spot during the hottest times of summer.
