San Diego Patio Covers | Back

The most common shade solution is a patio cover. Patio covers can be attached to your home or freestanding, depending on how you will use the shaded area. They can be constructed out of many different materials including lumber, aluminum, steel or a composite material. At Western Outdoor Design & Build we almost always recommend an ALUMAWOOD™ patio cover, the perfect solution for homeowners who want the look, beauty and protection of real wood, without the burdens of maintenance and higher cost. Alumnawood provides homeowners with elegant, efficient and eco-friendly shade solutions, built to last longer than wood and look new for years to come. These durable patio covers won’t crack, peel, warp or rot, and are backed by one of the strongest warranties in the industry. They are also impervious to fire and termites, keeping your home safer than a wood structure.

Homeowners often opt to build a patio cover attached to a rear exit of the home to create a seamless extension of their living space. This newly shaded area can be an ideal location for an outdoor dining room or second living room. Freestanding patio covers are also quite common, and can be an effective way to retool an underused area of your backyard, transforming it into a peaceful retreat.

Freestanding patio covers are often referred to as pergolas, especially when they are equipped with an open or latticed roof. Pergolas can provide a strong design element, giving your backyard the charming look of an Italian or Mediterranean garden. Pergolas are often constructed out of cedar or another natural wood, however they can also be constructed with vinyl, fiberglass or other composite materials.

Another popular shade solution is the gazebo, a freestanding octagonal structure popular in Asian garden designs. Gazebos can bring your backyard a sense of serenity and tranquility, while providing you and your family with fully shaded retreat from the sun. Gazebos are unique because their solid rood and open walls provide a rare combination of full shade and unobstructed views.

With all of these different options, it is no wonder homeowners end up sitting under umbrellas in their backyard! Thankfully the experts at Western Outdoor Design & Build can make all of these decisions easy and help you choose the right shade structures to suit your lifestyle. Having built thousands of patio covers, pergolas, gazebos, awnings, and enclosures over the years, Western Outdoor Design & Build can explain your options and will design the structure right for you.
