Why choose a patio cover?

While having a sunny garden can be lovely and great for plants and flowers too, it's also a good idea to be able to take refuge in the shade when you want to. On long, hot summer days, temperatures can soar, and being able to protect yourself and more delicate plants from the sun's rays can be more comfortable and allow you to enjoy your outside space for longer.

Similarly, suppose you've planned an outside gathering or simply want some fresh air, and the weather isn't working in your favor. In that case, a patio cover can protect you from the elements meaning you can still sit outside, BBQ, and entertain even when it's a little windy or raining.

How are metal patio covers made?

Metal roll forming machines can create the parts needed to make a metal patio cover with speed and precision. Advanced technology means that roll forming machines will produce uniform parts, bending and shaping the metal through each part of the roll forming process without compromising the material's structural integrity.

Why opt for metal over other patio cover materials?
Strong and longlasting

When it comes to selecting a cover for your patio, you might be tempted by an awning or even a pergola. However, a metal patio cover is by far the best material to choose, being robust, durable, and weatherproof, making it excellent value for money and sure to last for many years to come.

Elegant and versatile

Metal patio covers also look sleek and stylish. You can choose different finishes and colors to ensure that the patio cover you choose looks great and compliments your particular style of home and garden. You can find one that blends in seamlessly with the exterior of your home. If you wish, you can choose an option to paint yourself, meaning you can paint your metal patio cover any color of the rainbow!

Low upkeep and maintenance costs

Because metal is solid and hard-wearing, once it's up and in place, you won't have to worry that it will rot, crack or break like you might if you chose the vinyl or wooden option. Metal is weatherproof, fireproof, virtually terminate proof, and highly robust, so it can stand up to adverse weather such as strong winds and won't rust or weaken in rain or snow.

Easier installation

If you opt for different materials for your patio cover, larger beams are required to achieve the same width span as you would if choosing metal. A metal patio cover has the added benefit of requiring fewer angled or overly heavy connections therefore the patio itself will feel more spacious and airier when the cover is out.

Can increase the value of the property

A metal patio cover means that you can enjoy the outside space, whatever the weather. This is hugely appealing for prospective buyers and, therefore, will help boost your home's value.
