    It is very important to consider your personal style and needs in choosing your patio.  Patio designs can match your house or contrast with your home and be a feature. Remember to take into consideration your needs and budget. Let’s start by looking at the different types of patios.

    Dome - SawtoothA Gable patio style is very common in Australia. It is the standard design for most patios.  A gable patio roof traces the angles in your house as it extends adjacent to your wall.

    A Dome style is more of a contemporary modern design which offers an added option for you to choose from and give a different look to your home. Dome is always a good choice for a feature area.

    Flat patios are simpler than other types. It’s like a roof extension from your house’s wall but created with a twist. Often we can use clear roof panels where a portion of sunlight can pass through. For a flat patio you need to have a high roof height.

    Hip End patios are actually variations of Gable patios style. Hip end gables can be a very attractive addition to your home.

    Custom Design patios are designed specifically to suit your situation. Choices are endless with this type of patio. You can combine one type with the other to have a unique patio.
