Patio Covers In Colorado Springs, CO
Your outdoor living spaces can truly extend the living area of your home into the yard to enjoy for many months of the year. That is particularly true when you choose to have a patio cover installed over your outdoor patio. A patio cover, canopy, or awning, also protects the patio from the weather, making it more resistant to damage due to snow, ice, and sun. It also adds curb appeal to your home look.
Experience The Comfort Of A Shaded Patio
At Creative Outdoor Living, we recognize that your patio represents a valuable amount of square footage that is added to your home. Over the years having installed hundreds of patio covers for our clients, we know firsthand that covering your patio can save money on your electric bill. It also provides a safe place outside to spend time for more months of the years because it keeps ice and snow from piling up next to the back door.
Low-Maintenance Patio Awnings
A low-maintenance patio awning can either be affixed to the building for permanence or retractable for convertibility. A patio awning can either be soft or firm canvas or more solid with fiberglass and PVC posts. It can be quite ornate or very simple and made in any color or style to complement your house style. Patio awnings increase the style and value of your home as well.
Patio awnings are very practical. They require very little maintenance, especially when made of more durable materials. A retractable patio awning gives you the best of all worlds so that you can remove it when desired. It helps to define a seating area or BBQ space, encourages you to stay outside in all kinds of weather, and is so affordable to install. They are more expensive than canopies, but also very cost-effective.
Custom-Built Patio Roofs
At Creative Outdoor Living, we have dozens of designs for you to review before you decide on a style, color, size, or shape for your patio cover. For a permanent look, a custom-built patio roof is a good choice. The only real drawback to having a patio roof installed is that it is more permanent so you would not be able to expose the area to sun if you wanted to for any reason. A custom-built patio roof will be better than a canopy or awning in many ways.
A custom-built patio roof would be better affixed to the home structure for security and safety. It would also provide more coverage from the weather for you and your guests. A custom-built patio roof would also be stronger to withstand high wind and rain. It would not be retractable or removable. Nor would it need to be maintained nearly as much as a non-permanent structure such as a canopy or awning. A custom-built patio roof can be quite affordable, but more expensive than the other options.
Alternative Patio Shade Structures
There are so many styles of alternative patio shade structures from which to choose. From canvas to metal to wood to roof tile, you can literally decide all the features that are important to you and a custom-built patio cover can be made to fulfill your every need. There is no limit to the types, styles, colors, materials, and sizes we can offer. Once we show you all the options, you can make informed decisions.
Perhaps you want to install a backyard patio cover to protect your hot tub, but you want to be able to expose the hot tub during the summer seasons. In that case, a retractable cover in a variety of materials could be erected. Maybe you would love a see-through fiberglass top and wooden posts as a place for plants needing partial sun. Or maybe you’d prefer a modern, sleek, metal post and beam structure with a permanent roof, which could be insulated to retain heat. If you can imagine it, we at Creative Outdoor Living can build it for you.
