Benefits of Patio Covers

Introduction to Patio Covers

Welcome to the world of enhanced outdoor living, where elegance meets functionality right in your backyard. At Smart Patio Plus, we take pride in offering innovative solutions like the StruXure patio cover system, designed to bring comfort and style to your outdoor spaces. Our commitment to sustainability and customization ensures that each patio cover is not only a smart addition to your home but also an environmentally conscious choice.

Benefits of Patio Covers

Protection and Comfort

One of the primary advantages of patio covers is their ability to shield you and your outdoor furnishings from the elements. Whether it’s the scorching sun or an unexpected rain shower, a well-designed cover allows you to enjoy your outdoor space without worry.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Our StruXure patio covers are not just functional; they are also stylish additions to any outdoor area. With a range of colors and the ability to custom-build each order, we can match your architectural style, from traditional to contemporary, seamlessly integrating your indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Types of Patio Covers

StruXure Cover System

The StruXure system is at the forefront of patio cover innovation. Designed to pivot or slide based on your needs, it offers full control over your outdoor environment. With voice activation or the touch of a button, you can adjust the amount of sunlight filtering into your space, ensuring optimal comfort at any time of the day.

Material Choices

Constructed from sustainable materials and fully extruded aluminum, our patio covers are built to last. The material choices not only contribute to the durability and longevity of the cover but also offer a sleek, modern look that can elevate any outdoor setting.

Customization Options

We believe that a patio cover should reflect the unique style and needs of each homeowner. That’s why we offer fully customizable solutions, from colors to designs and operation modes. Whether you’re looking for a manual or motorized system, our team works closely with you to bring your vision to life.

Technology and Innovation

The integration of Somfy RTS® Technology into our StruXure system represents the perfect union of functionality and ease-of-use. Compatible with home automation systems like Alexa, our patio covers offer unprecedented control, allowing you to create the perfect outdoor environment without stepping away from your guests.

Commercial Solutions

Pivot 6 XL and Slide Systems

Our offerings extend beyond residential spaces to accommodate commercial needs as well. The Pivot 6 XL model is engineered for larger areas, providing ample coverage for dining and leisure spaces in commercial settings. Similarly, the Pivot 6 Slide offers a unique solution by fully opening to reveal the sky, much like a vehicle’s sunroof, perfect for venues seeking an open-air experience.

How much does it cost to cover a 20×20 patio?

When it comes to covering a 20×20 patio, the cost can vary significantly based on materials, design complexity, and additional features like motorization or integration with home automation systems. For a high-quality, custom-built StruXure patio cover system from Smart Patio Plus, the price can range significantly, generally starting in the thousands. It’s an investment in your home’s value and your outdoor living experience. Each project is unique, and we pride ourselves on working closely with you to tailor the project to fit your needs and budget. Imagine transforming your outdoor space into a year-round haven for relaxation and entertainment – that’s the value we bring.

What is the cheapest way to cover a patio?

The most budget-friendly option to cover a patio typically involves using sail shades or simple pergolas. While these can provide some relief from the sun, they might not offer the same level of protection or durability as a custom-built patio cover. However, at Smart Patio Plus, we understand the importance of catering to a range of budgets and can discuss various options that balance cost with functionality and style. It’s all about finding the right solution that meets your needs while still adhering to your financial plan.

What is the best material for outdoor patio cover?

Without a doubt, extruded aluminum stands out as the premier choice for outdoor patio covers, particularly in our StruXure systems. This material not only ensures durability and longevity but also offers flexibility in design and finishes to perfectly complement your home’s aesthetic. Its resistance to weather and minimal maintenance requirements make it a smart choice for any homeowner looking for a blend of form and function in their outdoor living space. Consider how a patio cover can serve as a stylish yet practical extension of your home.

How much does it cost to cover a 10×10 patio?

Covering a 10×10 patio with a StruXure system from Smart Patio Plus is more affordable than many people think. Given the smaller area, the cost is lower than larger projects, but it still varies based on customizations and materials. It’s an excellent way to make even a compact outdoor space more versatile and enjoyable throughout the year. Let’s discuss how we can maximize your space’s potential within your budget.

How does Smart Patio Plus address environmental sustainability with its patio covers?

At Smart Patio Plus, sustainability is at the heart of what we do. Our StruXure patio covers are made from sustainable materials, including fully extruded aluminum, which is not only durable but also recyclable. We’re committed to minimizing our environmental footprint by integrating eco-friendly practices into our manufacturing process and product design. When you choose one of our patio covers, you’re making a choice that benefits not just your home, but the planet as well.

Can you walk me through the customization process for a patio cover?

Absolutely! The beauty of our StruXure patio covers lies in their customization. It all starts with a conversation about how you envision your outdoor space. From there, we consider the architectural style of your home, your personal preferences, and how you plan to use the area. Whether it’s choosing the color, integrating technology for motorized control, or deciding between pivot or slide operations, we guide you every step of the way. Our goal is to create a patio cover that feels like it was always meant to be a part of your home.

How does Smart Patio Plus integrate technology into patio covers?

Technology plays a pivotal role in transforming patio covers from static structures into dynamic, adaptable living spaces. Our StruXure systems incorporate advanced technology like Somfy RTS® for motorized control, making adjustments as simple as a voice command or a tap on your smartphone. Compatible with home automation systems like Alexa, our patio covers can adjust to the perfect balance of shade and sunlight without you having to leave your guests. It’s about blending convenience, luxury, and functionality to enhance your outdoor living experience.
