Patio Covers - Made in the Shade

June 1, 2016

glass patio coverMade in the Shade with Modern.

Add style and function to your outdoor living space this summer with a new patio cover from Modern. Modern offers some attractive options that can help you enjoy the great outdoors even if the weather isn't cooperating. A covered patio is the perfect place to enjoy some quiet time or all of that summer barbecue entertaining you've been looking forward to. You can choose from glass patio covers or aluminum patio covers, both are sturdy enough to handle the weight of the wet coastal snow.

Here's an overview of what our customers love about these products, and some of the most popular features.

1. There are a variety of ways you can choose to attach a patio cover to your home so the installation is pretty straight forward. You can choose fascia, under soffit or a roof mounted model, all of which have a hidden gutter to redirect water into your existing eaves trough system so that you don't have roof run off to worry about. (If you choose to attach to the roof fascia, taking off your existing gutters and using flashing to make the connection between the two structures works great.)

2. You can custom design your patio to maximize exposure or privacy. Depending on the type of glass you choose you, you can obscure the view for privacy or add UV ray protection. You can have stationary or retractable covers, or even add skylights to an aluminum cover to create the outdoor environment that works for you. 

3. Unlike a patio cover kit, the size of your patio is not an issue, as you can customize that too. There are some recommendations for the number of posts you need for the span of the space to ensure building requirements are met, but you can cover as much of an area as you want to.

Just to kick off the summer season, we thought we'd add a few summer barbecue recipes for you to try when you break in your new covered patio.
