We all strive to create a nice relaxation zone in our outdoor living space and the flat patio is a space that has a permanent flat roof and the structure is tailor made to fit the location. If you are in the process of having your dream home built, having a flat roof constructed gives you permanent shading and a platform on which to create a relaxing ambience.
If you live in Australia, there are contractors that specialise in flat patios and they can create a 3D computer image of the patio to give you a clear picture of what to expect.
The range of designs includes the following:
- Pergola style – Black steel and pine slats make for an attractive patio area.
- Insulation roof – The covering is a composite material that reflects the heat off the roof, keeping the temperature down.
- Gable patio – The roof is built to be an extension of the gable roof of the property.
- Dome patio – This design allows for increased airflow and is popular for that very reason.
The supplier would be happy to pay you a visit and help to design and quote for, the perfect patio and with custom solutions, your patio will be ready for next summer.
Designing a New Build
If you are in the process of designing your dream home, why not contact the flat patio specialists? You can have your patio area roofed at the same time, which ensures the design fits perfectly with the property. The supplier has a wealth of hands-on experience designing and building patios to match the structure; choosing building materials that match perfectly.
You might like to have permanent shading over a pool or a dining area that is set aside from the main home. You can also create walkways with overhead shading and there are numerous ways to do this; timber lattice makes for a great foundation for creeping plants, or you can have traditional slate roofing over pathways. There is no limit to what you can do with permanent shading and tailoring to suit the property is essential to maintaining the character of the home.
Choose something rustic looking and hardy; wicker-resin furniture is perfect, with aluminium frames and washable cushion covers. While we are in the middle of the winter here in Australia, ordering garden furniture in the low season means cheaper prices.
If you were to ask 3 different companies to design a permanent roofing structure, you will be in a position to make an informed decision; you should get a feeling that one particular contractor seems more interested and that can be all it takes to choose a company to do the work.
