Why should I consider getting a patio cover?
Los Angeles homeowners are continually looking for innovative ways to make stylistic improvements to their properties that increase the overall value. Adding a patio cover provides improved functionality and enjoyment from your home! Whether you want to create an additional outdoor “room” or extend the garage roof into an outdoor carport, there are several potential benefits to installing a patio cover.
Patio Cover Ideas & Options
Every family has different needs, and those needs should be considered when you’re shopping for patio covers. When planning a patio cover installation project in Los Angeles, there are four primary factors that you are going to have to take into account before we get started.
You're going to need to put some thought into precisely where to place your patio cover, particularly if you have a large patio surface area. For instance, do you want a standalone carport or one that's attached to your home or garage? For back yard patio covers, you'll need to consider how far they should extend outwards, or whether you're more interested in creating a self-contained pergola-style patio cover further away from your home.
Perhaps the most critical choice you're going to have to make is deciding the purpose of your patio cover. For instance, are you looking to cover your currently-exposed outdoor kitchen set up? Planning to create an outdoor chill-out area next to your swimming pool? The choice is yours, but consider functionality as you start the decision-making process.
The material you choose can have a large impact on the overall look and feel of your patio cover. For outdoor dining areas, wood offers a premium and homely feel, but comes in near the top of the price scale and can require extra maintenance. On the other hand, if you are looking at introducing a carport, you could opt for the more cost-effective aluminum, which is durable and can be color-matched to your home's siding.
Although your choice of purpose and materials will heavily influence the design, there's still plenty of room to play around with the decorative features of your patio cover. For instance, are you looking to implement a porous lattice-style roof? Or perhaps you want a slanted design to aid drainage? Then there's the shape to consider too! Rectangular, semi-circular, and oblong designs are all great options. After you give us a call, we can help you take a look at your existing architecture and select designs to compliment that style.

Ask a RemodelMe Patio Cover Contractor: The FAQ's
Great question! Just like all home renovation projects, the final total will rest heavily on a wide variety of factors such as your choice of materials, size, design features, and whether you enlist the help of an architect. The larger the space you want to cover, the higher the total cost is likely to be. Furthermore, certain design requests might require the help of specialized service providers. For instance, we may need to obtain the help of electrical engineers if you plan to install complex lighting.
All successful patio cover projects start with an idea. Think about what your home is missing that a patio cover could provide. Are you yearning for a sheltered outdoor space to enjoy the warm summer evenings? Or are you more focused on protecting your vehicle from any potential damage caused by spending hours at a time exposed to the sun? Once you have an idea in mind, our design consultants can help you through the finer details and work with you to balance your vision and your budget.
Every patio cover is unique. There are going to be distinct challenges for each patio cover installation, which makes it tough to give accurate timelines without looking at your property. However, to give you an idea, many simple lean-to style patio covers can be installed in as little as a few weeks. Larger-scale projects that need the help of a wide range of professionals can take a couple of months. The larger the patio cover, the longer it usually takes, although this isn't always the case. Lastly, if you have a specific deadline to consider, we’re happy to discuss how we can meet those needs.
