Homeowners may be confused at the difference between a patio cover and a patio awning. Here are a few ways in which the two types of covers are different.

Patio Awning Roseville CA

A patio awning is a shape that attaches to a window or roof, extending into the outdoor space. Patio awnings can be made from canvas or aluminum and can be flat or rounded in shape.

There are hundreds of color choices available in patio awnings, along with patterns, to match with color schemes for your patio and home.

Patio awnings offer two distinct advantages. First, the pitch and angle of the awning can be adjusted, to give you full control of the amount of sun and shade in and out of your home. Second, an awning provides considerable protection from powerful California sun in your home, protecting furniture, window coverings and rugs from sun bleaching and reducing the temperature inside your home.

Patio awnings provide terrific flexibility. When you want to enjoy the sun, you can retract the awning easily. When you want to enjoy the outdoors during stormy or very hot weather, the awning is there to protect.

Patio awnings can be adjusted via a hand crank or automated systems. Motorized awnings can be controlled via a switch inside your home or by remote control.

Patio Covers

By contrast, a patio cover is usually a free-standing structure, though some can be attached to the home. They are permanent constructs that can cover a full patio.

Patio covers come in a wide range of styles. Double-sided aluminum covers are insulated and can be wired to allow for electronic connections, allowing homeowners to add fans, lighting and entertainment to their outdoor space. Lattice patio covers have open walls but patterned roofs to provide protection and interesting patterns of light and shadow.

Pergola patio covers come in many different materials, from natural woods to steel to vinyl. Pergolas can be outfitted with columns, purlins and rafters and have gabled, slatted or peaked roofs.
