Electric awnings are retractable coverings that can be extended or withdrawn depending on the weather. These motorized awnings are great for homeowners who are not tall or strong enough to retract the awnings on their own. There are also manual styles of retractable awnings in which you can fold up and take back the covering yourself. Manual vs retractable pros and cons suggest that electric or motorized systems are superior because of their ease of use. If you prefer to have your patio covered at all times, you can opt for the stationary awning. Stationary structures are built around the patio and provide shade and shelter year round. These types of awnings usually consist of some type of framework with a fabric covering stretched over the top.

It is important to pick a covering that not only matches the style of your home, but also suits the needs of your patio.

If an awning is not your style, but you would still like to cover your outdoor living space, consider installing wooden patio cover. The top wooden roofs include gazebos and pergolas, both of which are free standing pavilions that are popular decorations for yards, gardens and patios. Gazebos have a deck that takes on an octagonal shape with open sides. The roof of this structure is generally made of wood, but, other common gazebo covers include canvas or vinyl fabrics. Patio enclosure panels can be added to the openings of a gazebo to create a screened in or closed in space. A pergola is a structure that provides shade and shelter to an area, however, it is usually square or rectangular in shape with vertical support beams and an open lattice roof.
