Roofing styles and materials can greatly effect the appeal and livability of your patio or deck but there are a few things to consider when deciding on whats right for you such as;
Roofed decks, patios and verandas can get hot and can block light from entering the house. As we know, the sun in Queensland can be unforgiving but we all like to keep our homes light and airy. New opaque polycarbonate roofing could be a solution when installed above windows alongside the existing tin roof as it keeps out most of the sun but lets the light in.
Heat insulating pre-fabricated panels can make a difference and are ideal for new structures. Corrugated galvanised iron and variants have been the mainstay of roofing in Queensland but there are now many other not only attractive options but also very practical ones, some of which can be retrofitted for a fresh new look.
