Are you a Rocklin, CA resident interested in enhancing your backyard space? If so, an awning patio cover is a great way to improve the look and function of your patio.

There are many different types of patio awnings available to suit a range of styles, preferences and spaces. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular patio covers.

Lattice patio awnings provide excellent shading while still allowing users to enjoy the beautiful weather in California. Lattice work creates beautiful patterns as the sun shines through while also protecting you from harsher weather. Lattice awnings also allow for plants and vines to crawl up the sides and across the canopy for added beauty and a touch of nature.

Lattice home awnings can be outfitted with added features, such as supporting beams and rafters in different designs that let homeowners customize their installation to match existing landscaping or home décor.

Solid patio covers offer a number of options. Wood awnings have a classic look and come in a variety of materials. Patio covers and roofs can be made from redwood and cedar, which are particularly resistant to decay. Pines, Douglas Fir and Western Larch are less expensive options, though protective finishes are recommended. Pressure-treated lumber is usually the least expensive and comes with applied preservatives that resist rot, insects and other types of decay.

Solid heavy-gauge aluminum patio covers are practically maintenance-free and will be free of damage from mold, rot or insect activity. Aluminum also does not need to be painted and will not rust (though some steel fixtures need to be watched for peeling paint).

Aluminum home awnings can be either single skinned or double skinned. The latter includes an internal layer that contains insulation to lower how much heat is absorbed by the structure. Double-skinned covers also can be wired, allowing homeowners to enjoy electrical outlets for lighting, misters, fans and other devices, if desired.

Pergolas are a fourth option, and come with either slatted or solid roofs and open sides. Made of vinyl, wood, or steel, pergolas usually are adorned with rafters, columns or purlins. There are many design options for roofs, from peaks to gables to ridges. Planted vines, roses or grapes can add lovely visual beauty and fragrance to your outdoor experience. A newer addition to the pergola options is the sail, in which a piece of flexible fabric is stretched between posts at each corner. Sail pergolas provide a 21st century look to your outdoor space.

Patio awnings have a number of advantages for homeowners. They improve the curb appeal, adding value to your home when you choose to sell. They shield indoor spaces from excessive heat, sunlight and sun damage to furniture, carpeting, floors and window coverings. Perhaps most importantly, they extend your usable space. Bring the party outside, enjoy drinks as the sun sets or cool off during a hot day without traipsing all the way inside.
