Enjoy the Outdoors More with a Stylish Patio Cover

A patio is a great way to enjoy the outdoor space in your home. From kicking back with a book and a cup of tea to unwind in your spare time to hosting friends for a summer barbecue, a patio is a fantastic addition to any home. However, if your patio isn’t covered, you can be forced to remain inside during rainy or particularly hot summer days.

By adding a patio cover, you can enjoy your patio more often regardless of the weather conditions. You can also reduce maintenance and extend the lifetime of the decking on your patio and any outdoor furniture as they will not be exposed to as much damage from weathering. Here are a few things to consider before getting a patio cover installed.



Style will always be an essential factor when considering a patio cover. You want the whole patio to look great and match the rest of your property aesthetically. Patio covers come in a range of styles, colours and designs. You can pick colour schemes that match the roofing on your home or highlight other features of your house. Either way, ensure it will look consistent and compliment the external decor of your home.


Material and Local Climate

Is your area prone to heavy rain or hail? Like much of Australia, you probably also have to deal with a powerful sun during summer. All these considerations are important when choosing the right material for a patio cover. Materials for patio covers can vary from fabric and leather to steel and polythene.

You want your patio cover to be strong enough to withstand the weather conditions of your area. In Sydney, this means something that stays cool and can reflect heat in summer while durable enough to withstand heavy rain and hail in winter.


Insulated Patio Covers

Insulated patio covers ensure you can enjoy your patio at all times of the year by helping it stay cool when the sun is beating down on it and warmer during cold winter days. Patio covers are usually insulated using a special protective coating, which also makes it more durable and long lasting.

At Patioland, we recommend the Shademaster patio cover. These patio covers stay cooler due to an 80 per cent double sided gloss paint finish. Unique integrated panels block out 100 per cent of harmful UV rays while still allowing natural light to enter. This means you can enjoy bright warm summers without getting too uncomfortable or sunburnt.
