A patio provides a versatile extension to any home. Whether attached or detached from your home and partially or fully enclosed, there are hours of fun and years of memories to be made under your patio. When building a patio, there’s important decisions to make including the location, size, style and materials. However, did you know there are also various roof options available?
Read on to learn 4 roofing options available when building or installing a patio including:
- Gable Roof
- Hip Roof
- Flat Roof
- Dome Roof
Visually, a gable roof resembles a triangular shape. Two panels of roofing are pitched at an angle, meeting and joining in the centre. A gable roof is an option for patios that are both attached and detached from a home. A gable roof is a great option as the pitch ensures good ventilation. This is great in summer as the beautiful afternoon sea breeze can flow through your patio helping keep it cool and comfortable.
A hip patio roof consists of four sides of roofing, of equal lengths, that meet at the top to form a ridge. It is popular for its stability and durability especially in locations that have high winds such as coastal suburbs. A hip roof can allow you to utilise your patio through all seasons as it gives extra protection from the sun during summer and rain during winter.
A flat roof patio is one of the more traditional styles and is used in both attached and detached patios. Visually, a flat roof has no pitch and is all the same height however, this is not the case. To ensure good drainage, a flat patio roof has a slight pitch. Less materials are used when building a flat roof due to their being no slope.
To make the roof of your patio a real focal point, a dome roof is ideal. Visually, it resembles an inverted bowl shape. When choosing a dome roof, you can choose how curved you want it to be. A dome roof is a great choice if you want to really create a sense of space under your patio.
