Benefits Of A Patio Cover

Installing a patio cover is a major upgrade to your outdoor living space that transforms your exposed patio into an intimate space with protection from the elements. It allows you to enjoy your outdoor spaces for many more months of the year and requires very little maintenance in trade.

  • Extended Outdoor Use: Enjoy your outdoor space in all weather conditions, providing protection from the intense Texas sun and all but the harshest rain storms.

  • Energy Efficiency: Reduce cooling costs by shading your home’s exterior, which lowers the temperature on your patio and decreases your home’s solar gain during during hot summer months.

  • Enhanced Comfort: Create a cozy outdoor area for lounging and entertaining, without ever worrying about the weather.

  • Increased Property Value: Improve your home’s curb appeal and add functional outdoor living space, enhancing your property’s potential resale value.

  • Custom Style: Design your patio cover to match your architectural style, as a natural extension of your house into your yard.

  • Outdoor Entertainment: Create the perfect environment to house outdoor TVs, speakers, and other entertainment systems, in your outdoor space and protected from weather damage.

  • Protection for Outdoor Furniture: Extend the life of your outdoor furniture by shielding it from excessive sun and moisture.

  • Increased Privacy: Patio covers can be designed to offer added privacy from neighbors, making your space feel more secluded.

  • Space for Greenery: Use patio covers to support climbing plants and vines, adding lush greenery and a natural feel to your outdoor area.

There are nearly as many options for patio cover designs as there are for designs for patios themselves. But don’t feel overwhelmed, our designer will work with you to create a 3D rendering of your project to help you visualize the final product and work out all the little details.

Then our team of experienced Dallas patio cover installers will execute your project with the highest level of care and attention to detail, ensuring a beautiful addition to your home you’ll be proud to show your friends and neighbors.

Patio Cover Designs

Patio covers can be designed in a variety of ways, and our designer will work with you to tailor your installation to fit your home’s architectural style and your personal taste while serving its functional purpose perfectly.

  • Traditional Gabled Roof Covers: These covers feature a pitched roof that complements many classic home designs. The gabled roof adds height and ventilation, making this style perfect for hot Texas summers.
  • Modern Flat Roof Covers: Sleek and contemporary, flat roof covers integrate well with modern home aesthetics because of a minimalist, clean look that is very popular in newer neighborhoods.
  • Pergola Style Covers: Offering partial shade with a lattice-like roof, pergolas are excellent for those who prefer some sunlight to filter through while still providing protection. They also support climbing plants, which can add natural beauty to your outdoor space in quite dramatic ways.
  • Retractable Covers: A very functional option, retractable covers allow homeowners to adjust their patio cover based on current weather conditions, providing access to the sun and protection from weather, as needed.
  • Wooden Beam Covers: These are constructed with exposed wooden beams for a rustic or country-style look that fits well into more natural settings or traditional Texas home styles.

Each of these designs can be customized further to include features like built-in lighting, fans, or even integration with outdoor kitchens and fireplaces, giving you many options to consider as you turn your backyard into a year-round living space.

For example, here are some of the most common ways to customize your patio cover:

  • Material Choices: Select from cedar timber framing, aluminum, steel, or structural lumber that’s been wrapped or painted to match your home’s style and withstand the Texas weather.
  • Color and Finish: Customize the color and finish of your patio cover to complement your home’s exterior. From natural wood stains to vibrant painted finishes, or industrial coated steel for a modern look, choose what best suits your style.
  • Decorative Elements: Add decorative beams, corbels, or trim to give your patio cover a unique architectural look that integrates seamlessly into your home’s existing design.
  • Roofing Options: Choose from solid roofs with shingles, standing seam metal for complete shade and protection, or choose a louvered roof that allows light to filter through while still offering weather protection.
  • Built-in Features: Install built-in lighting for evening use, fans for additional comfort in the Texas heat, and/or heaters for chilly nights. We can also integrate outdoor TVs and speakers for entertainment.
  • Privacy and Screening: Add screens, automated shutters / screens, shutter walls, and seat and knee walls, and stone column wrapped posts, to provide privacy from neighbors and protection from elements, ensuring a cozy and intimate space for your enjoyment.

“What a great experience overall. They transformed our outdoor space. Matt and his team were great. They made sure we were completely satisfied before taking the final payment. He has also been around to answer a few follow-up questions and add some details to our outdoor kitchen after completion. Highly recommend!”

“Clark Outdoor Design did an amazing job on my outdoor kitchen.   They were very easy to work with and were proactive with giving us timelines and schedules .  All self induced change orders were very fair. No change orders that were not self induced.  Would recommend and will use again.”

“These guys are incredible. Two days and they were done.  Such attention to detail and the finished product is amazing. They even went above and beyond and had their gutter guy come reroute a downspout that I had been trying to get the pool company to do for a month.
