What Makes Us Different?
Typically, patios are located in the backyard or off to the side of a home. They’re perfect for entertaining guests, hosting barbecues, or simply spending time outdoors with family. A patio cover can turn your outdoor space into a true extension of your home, providing protection from the elements while you enjoy the outdoors. Add some outdoor furniture, a coffee table, plants, or a fire pit, and you have the perfect spot to relax or entertain guests.
At OrangeBlue, you can sit down with us, and let’s talk about what you want in a patio cover. We will help you select the perfect style and design to complement your home and provide the protection you need from the sun and rain. So, if you’re ready to turn your backyard into a true extension of your home, contact us today for a free consultation!
Here are some cover materials to consider for your patio:
Metal Patio Covers
A metal patio cover is a durable option that can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Metal patio covers come in various colors and styles to complement your home's exterior, and they can be personalized to match your preferences. The best thing about this patio cover material is that it's virtually maintenance-free—simply wash it down with a hose every now and then to keep it looking its best. If you use it with window awnings, you can create a complete outdoor living space protecting you from the sun and rain.
Wood Patio Covers
A wood patio cover is a classic choice that will never go out of style. Wood patio covers can be custom-designed to match your home's architecture, and they provide excellent protection from the sun and rain. A wood patio cover can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. We can install a flat-topped patio cover or one that matches your roofline for a more sophisticated and natural look. Wood covers can also block the sun during the hotter months and keep your patio cooler. The only downside to this material is that it requires more upkeep than other options—you'll need to sand and stain it regularly to keep it looking its best. But does that matter when you have a beautiful wooden patio cover to enjoy?
Louvered Patio Covers (Automatic or manual)
A louver is a type of blade used to control the amount of sunlight, wind, and rain that enters an outdoor space. Depending on your needs, louvered patio covers can be fully open, partially open, or closed. They're a great choice if you want the option to control the amount of sun or rain that hits your patio. And, because they can be opened or closed with the touch of a button (if you choose an automatic version), they're also very convenient. Louvered patio covers are available in various colors and styles to complement your home's exterior. Some louvered patio covers also come with remote control, so you don't have to get up to adjust them. Imagine being curled up comfortably on your patio furniture, sipping a glass of wine, and closing the louvers by just touching a button when the sun gets too bright.
Composite Patio Covers
A composite patio cover is made from a mix of materials, typically wood fibers and recycled plastic. This material is durable and low-maintenance, making it an excellent choice for busy families. Composite patio covers come in various colors and styles to match your home's exterior. Plus, they can be custom-designed to meet your specific needs. Composite is an excellent option if you're looking for a beautiful and durable patio cover that requires little upkeep. Also, if you love the look of a wooden patio cover without the necessary maintenance and are lightweight, composite patio covers give you the best of both worlds. Imagine never having to sand, stain, or repaint your patio cover!
Glass Patio Covers
A glass patio cover is a beautiful way to extend your living space and enjoy the outdoors year-round. Glass patios can be fully enclosed or partially open, providing excellent protection from the sun, wind, and rain. They're also very easy to keep clean—simply wipe them down with a damp cloth. You can choose from a wide range of colors and styles to complement your home's exterior. If you want to enjoy your patio all year long, a glass patio cover is a great option. Glass patio covers absorb and reflect while maintaining a comfortable temperature. So next time you have visitors come over, they can enjoy unlimited views of the clouds floating by or the stars shining bright at night.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best patio cover for my needs?
The best patio cover for your needs depends on a number of factors, including your budget, the climate where you live, and your personal preferences. Composite might be the best choice if you want a low-maintenance option that will last for many years. If you're looking for something more affordable, wood or vinyl might be better. And if you want the ability to control the amount of sun and rain that hits your patio, a louvered patio cover might be the best choice.
When should I install my patio cover?
In most cases, it's best to install your patio cover in the spring or fall. This will help you avoid extreme weather conditions and make the installation process more manageable. However, if you live in an area with a mild climate, you might be able to install your patio cover at any time of year.
Can a patio cover withstand high winds?
Yes, most patio covers are designed to withstand high winds. However, it's always a good idea to check with the manufacturer to be sure. If you live in a region with frequent high winds, you might want to choose a sturdier option, such as composite. If you contact us, we also provide expert advice on the best patio cover materials and designs for high-wind areas.
