Patios are an outdoor extension of your indoor lifestyle. With an astute roof design, you can reflect your personality while adding value to your property.
Over the years, patio roof designs have evolved to suit individual taste, provide shelter from the weather and tailored for budgetary constraints. Among these patio roof designs are awnings, including both fixed and retractable solutions. These are available in canvas or insulated roof ceiling sheets to name a few.
Canvas patio awnings are a budget-friendly roof design solution. They are available in a wide range of colour pallets, complementing the exterior of the building. Canvas awnings can be fixed, or operated with a retractable arm. This allows for an extension across the outdoor living area.
An insulated roof with ceiling sheets can be erected with aluminium or polycarbonate thermoplastic. Both offer many years of low-maintenance service and have thermal qualities that enhance the outdoor living experience.
There is no better way to protect your patio than with an insulated roof awning.
Polycarbonate is always a popular choice. It is a high-quality product with a lifespan of up to 20 years. This product has built-in UV-blocking qualities that can withstand extreme temperatures. Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic material, ideal as a roofing solution for patios, sunrooms and decks.
Another insulated roofing solution is canvas awning canopies. Not only do these add space to homes and business premises, they also offer great protection from all weather conditions. Canvas awnings are available as fixed or retractable roofing solutions.
Insulation of outdoor living spaces is essential for the South African climate. Not only does it protect property from the harsh elements of wind, rain, heat and cold, but insulation also acts as a thermal blanket which cuts down costs for heating or cooling.
POLYCARBONATE PATIO ROOF INSTALLATION
Polycarbonate sheeting is an ideal roofing product for patios and all outdoor entertainment areas. This thermoplastic material is virtually indestructible and can tolerate extreme weather conditions, both hot and cold. Polycarbonate panels are so resistant to impact that the material is used in the manufacture of police bulletproof shields!
OTHER POLYCARBONATE ADVANTAGES
Acting like a shield from ultra-violet rays, polycarbonate sheeting is nevertheless a wonderful light transmission material. Acting very much like a pane of glass, polycarbonate’s translucent qualities make it an attractive and viable roofing agent option for outside living spaces.
The fact that polycarbonate is a lightweight material, makes it an attractive roofing option because it is more manageable than other heavier products and is easier to transport. Its durability makes polycarbonate roof sheeting an extremely attractive and cost-effective option. Polycarbonate offers many years of service without fading or discolouring. The roof sheets are available in a variety of colours and tints.
