Perth Patio Roof Options

Various Perth Patio Roof Designs

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.

Why Build A Perth Outdoor Patio

Adding an outdoor patio to your Perth home is a great idea to add an extra living space to your home, give your children a safe place to play with bikes and their toys, provide a shelter area for your pet(s) and a patio will increase the value of your home.

Of course, you can choose from DIY or have a professional company install your new patio. DIY is fine for a simple flat roof design over a small area (2x2m), but anything bigger or using a different patio roof style like gable or dome should be left to the professionals. Also, don’t forget that most areas require council approval. Your patio installation company will organise that for you too.
