Choices For Patios

In terms of design, the range of options can go from something traditional to something you can have combined. Depending on the style you are looking for and what can be applied to your property, the following are what you can choose to go with:

Conventional Patio

Considered as the general type of patio design to choose from, this style features a flat roof and standard pillars while attached to the home. With the right materials, you can have a patio that features a traditional style while standing against different weather conditions

Flyover Patio

This patio design features approximately 700mm of extra head height across the entire patio roof and ensures high ventilation. The main downside to this design however is that its application may depend on what your property can handle/support

Gable Patio

Similar to its pergola counterpart, a gable patio has rafters 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. Another feature with this design is that you can have the addition of  ‘wings’, otherwise known as a flat section on either side of the gable for better waterproofing

Skydome Patio

In comparison to other patio designs, this patio type has three unique features that make it stand out. Its most notable feature is its unique ventilation system which cools your patio by allowing hot air to be drawn out. The other feature you will find with this patio design is that it can let more natural light in and be incorporated into other designs

While there is a selection of styles to choose from, you will need to determine not only what will work best for your property, but also what materials can ensure the durability of your chosen structure style. With patio materials, you will need to note on the roofing, the type of roofing and materials you can select from includes the following

Heat Deflective Roofing: This type of roofing has material containing a built-in feature that helps protect your patio from any harsh sunlight/heat and is best suited for either pitched or flat roofs.

Composite Insulated Roofing: A roofing type with a material that generally contains a polystyrene core that delivers a cooler outdoor area even on the hottest days and can come in different colors, density or styles

Pergola / Louver Style Roofing: When choosing this roofing type, you essentially get an open-air patio with your choice of how much sunlight comes through and high ventilation. If your area does not face high weather changes and you are open to sun exposure, this is a selection you can make. 

You are free to select what type of patio you would like for your outdoor space and material to apply. However, determining what kind of patio would work best for your property would be best consulted with a professional service. For a service that can provide quality results with reliable professionals, Geelong Carports is the choice.
