Why Opt for a Metal Patio Cover?

Why choose a metal patio cover? Most homeowners decide to install a shade structure such as an awning or pergola. However, they usually don’t have a clue of what building material they should choose. It’s best to do your research to know what your options are and what benefits they can provide you.

The most common materials for a patio project are wood, fabric, vinyl, and metal. There are a few advantages that you may want to take into consideration.

Why metal? It’s probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about style and comfort. However, with the technology today and the number of covers out in the market, you can surely find a sophisticated and elegant patio cover that would create the perfect outdoor living space for your family and friends to enjoy.

Versatility

A metal patio cover will offer you versatility and flexibility. This is because metal comes in a variety of styles, colors, and texture that even includes a genuine wood appearance.

This option will make it easier for you to match the existing design of your home’s exterior. Also, it’s worth mentioning that some types do not require paint, particularly those that have surface protectors such as Teflon.

Low Maintenance Costs

You are more likely to experience fewer maintenance issues as compared to a wood or fabric patio covers. This is because metal does not crack, rot, or peel. In addition, this highly durable material doesn’t burn and is virtually termite-proof.

If you’re worrying about rust issues, there are some metal patio covers in the market with a finish to prevent the formation of rust. Aluminum structures are, of course, rust free.

Protection from the Elements of Nature

A metal patio cover will definitely hold more weight compared to tubular aluminum, fabric, and wooden structures. This feature is especially useful when you live in an area with heavy snowfalls. It won’t give you any problems with big snow loads since it is strong.

So whether you choose a lattice, solid, or adjustable metal roof, you can create a functional outdoor environment that will protect you and your family from the harsh weather elements.

Strength

Another benefit is its structural rigidity. If you choose other materials for your patio cover, you’ll have to install bigger beams so that you would achieve the same span as you would when using metal. Also, using metal will allow you to use less angled or overly heavy connections, making your patio more airier and less cluttered.

Increases the Value of Your Home

Creating an outdoor living space is fast becoming one of the more popular solutions for homeowners who want to increase the value of their homes.

Having a stylish outdoor space protected by a durable metal patio cover would not only give you a better return on their investment should they decide to sell their house later on, but also extend their home’s functionality to include the outdoors.
