Creative Designs With Laserlite Patio Roof Options

There are countless options when it comes to patio area and roof designs…

Perhaps you envisage a shady, leafy, cool retreat filled with green potted plants. Or perhaps you’d love a sunny, warm alcove that lets in lots of light. Whatever you have in mind you’ll need to choose the appropriate patio roofing material to achieve your outdoor vision.

With solid roof materials like Colorbond steel you block out 100% of the light. However, by adding polycarbonate plastic sheets, you can allow variable amounts of light and heat to get through – depending on your needs.

One such polycarbonate option is Laserlite by Bayer Australia.  Laserlite offers warranties of 15 years plus, so you can be sure your patio roof is going to keep out the weather for years to come!

Selecting The Best Patio Roof Design For Your Home

Outdoor patio roofs types flat, gable and dome

Flat, gable and dome patio roof types

FLAT ROOF – Just like the name implies, a flat roof is the same height all the way across. Flat roof patios are less popular now with roof designs like gable more in vogue.

Flat roof patios have less overhead space than other patio roof designs and can give that closed-in, claustrophobic feel.

However, this style of patio roof is perfectly fine for carports, or storage areas or for creating ‘extended eaves’ to give further protection from the sun and rain.

Other advantages to this patio roof style is that it is simpler to construct and install, and cost less than other patio designs.

GABLE ROOF – Gable designs incorporate a triangle shape roof making a pitched shape. Other variations of pitched roofs are HIP and DUTCH. Pitched gable (hip or dutch) sections can be mixed in with flat roof sections to create a customised look.

DOMED ROOF – Essentially a domed roof patio uses curved sections of metal, polycarbonate (or other) materials to produce the desired shape.

A disadvantage of domed roofs can be that they potentially can trap in heat, but this depends on the curvature of the dome. Slightly curved dome shapes won’t be a problem.
