Selecting the Right Type of Vinyl Patio Cover for You
There are a number of designs and types of vinyl patio covers to choose from when you get started. The type of cover you select depends on the space you want to cover and what kind of coverage you prefer.
Pergolas are a great option for a vinyl patio cover. They offer a nice combination of coverage and openness so you can still feel the breeze and enjoy the view. Pergolas also come in a variety of designs, so you can choose something that fits well with your home and yard design.
A lattice offers many of the advantages of pergolas with the added bonus of being attached to the house. With both, you can weave cloth for added coverage overhead. Stringing lights on the structure adds a nice element for evenings out on the patio.
Solid vinyl patio covers are another option that adds even more protection from the elements. The full overhead coverage is a great option for patios that are more exposed to the elements.
