Patio Cover

Instructions

Our pre-engineered kits are put together to conform to 2011 International Building Code standards. For your safety and insurance purposes we will need the following information before considering your request for quotation.

You will need to obtain a "pounds per square foot" load requirement and a "miles per hour" wind load requirement from your local building department. We use these to determine which thickness of panel you need, the number of posts and spacing between them, whether you need a beam and if so size and location.

The online request form can take 2+ minutes depending on the size of your project. Completing it will enable us to email you a quote within the next 24 hours.

PATIO COVER & CARPORT TERMINOLOGY

Patio Cover Terminology

Our patio cover systems are designed with the handy homeowner in mind. The units are modular which enable many customizations and almost any size. To the left you will see a schematic that highlights some of the key elements and terminology used in describing and quoting our cover kits. Freestanding and wall attached units are available.

We will need a back wall height measurement - either how high on your house wall will you be attaching your patio cover or the ground to eave measurement if attaching to the front fascia board.
We will need your desired projection and width. If you are covering the entire deck, we suggest a 1' overhang on both sides and the front.
We will need to know if you are attaching the unit to an existing deck or patio surface OR are you cementing the posts into the ground.
We can accommodate any conditions - bump outs, chimneys, etc. In these cases we will need to know the details and measurements so we can provide extra inside and outside corners. The best way to do this is provide a drawing/sketch indicating the measurements in the last step of this online form.

Different regions across the country have different wind and snow load for building requirements. Areas with higher wind and/or snow loads may require more posts, or larger posts, in order to accommodate the heavier loads.

Downspouts are not included. Let us know if you require them. They are $45.00 for a basic 8' assembly. They are easily picked up locally and this would give you the freedom to create the shape you need.

Flashing is not included. When doing a fascia board mount, you will need to flash 3" under the shingles and about 12" out onto your patio cover. On a wall mount, "L" flashing would go under the siding and again about 12" out onto your patio cover.

Hardware to attach the back-wall fascia gutter to house wall or fascia board is not included.

Example of the design specs we generate based on your sketch:

The Sketch

For covers that do not have standard rectangular shapes or there are we ask that you provide a rough sketch to ensure what is quoted matches the desired layout.

  • Indicate all the existing posts which are going to be incorporated into the enclosure and the distances between each post.
  • If you have no existing posts that you want included in the installation, give distance away from house walls and distance between corners.
  • Indicate whether there are existing railings and whether they are to be considered in the screen wall application.
  • Indicate the highest dimension from floor (deck or patio) to the desired roof line. If there is a significant variation between wall heights, be sure to list them on your drawing.

Our designers will work with you to make sure every detail is right. Once the specifications are complete, we'll send you a quote which will include cost, details and a drawing that indicates how to use the material. Once accepted, the next step is the custom manufacturing.
