Regarding the right covering for your patio, Luxe Decor has shade structures that suit every decorating style. Backyard coverage needs to provide adequate shade no matter where sunlight falls.
In addition, every patio covering must allow the free flow of breezes while protecting everyone's eyes and skin. On the other hand, a patio covering must provide adequate protection from mosquitos, flies, vermin, and rain, heat, and cold.
Factor the following into your decision:
Be sure to examine your local building code. At the very least, use the International Building Code standards for patio covers when selecting, installing, and using your patio cover to ensure that it will not block windows, doors, or fire escapes. Do not rely upon what you see in your neighborhood since those structures could fall under grandfather provisions or violate current building and fire codes.
Measure the space surrounding your patio. Stand at various points in your yard to determine lines of sight, and look out your home's windows overlooking your patio to decide how your patio cover might affect the view. Blocking a spectacular view with a permanent patio cover could lower your home's resale value or curb appeal.
Consider your intended use of your patio and the various areas of your yard. For example, your front porch cover and backyard coverage might need to meet utterly different building code standards. A front porch cover might attach to your roof, while a freestanding backyard patio cover could connect to support poles and stabilizers instead.
Next, consider the number of people that you typically entertain. Your shade patio cover needs to accommodate your entire family and all the friends, neighbors, and coworkers you mingle with.
Subsequently, when you browse our freestanding patio covers, you’ll see that our Luxe Decor Woodline Shade Solutions Papillon 15.1-foot by 9.8-foot Rectangular Pavilion with Stainless Steel Glass Beaded Poles seats 10 to 12 people and has available sidewalls and end walls. In addition, we have a square version of this same pavilion, well-suited to groups of six to eight.
Research how much weight in rainfall, snow, leaves, or debris your patio cover might need to support. Mississippi's residents, for example, deal with prolific live oaks in their state. In addition to abundant leaves, live oaks produce incredible amounts of highly acidic acorns, damaging the cover material, eventually causing it to rip or develop holes. In that case, a shade with a mechanical assist, such as our Treasure Garden Market Aluminum 8-ft. by 11-ft. Crank Lift Rectangular Umbrella or our 11-ft. Octagon Auto Tilt Crank Lift Umbrella provides the ease of opening and closing necessary to keep leaves and debris from accumulating.
Sturdiness matters if you own pets. Many clever dogs learn to jump from a chair or table to the top of a shed. From there, they will leap to a wire-supported shade sail or other patio covers and then to a first-story roof, especially if they are terriers, shepherds, or collies. Unfortunately, this behavior damages the patio cover, leading to holes and tears unless you select something with sturdy support, such as our Bambrella Alize 13 by 10 Rectangular Pavilion or our slightly smaller Bambrella Alize 10 by 10 Square Bamboo Pavilion.
Mechanical assists such as cranks and automatic tilt features allow you to protect lighter-weight aluminum and vinyl patio covers and large umbrella patio covers from damage during high winds, hailstorms, or summer thundershowers. Being able to raise and lower or retract an awning, umbrella, or shade sail in a hurry could make a difference over the lifetime of your patio cover.
Luxe Decor's wide selection of materials used in your patio cover's construction includes:
We also have a vast array of:
Some of our beautiful pavilions and umbrellas have up to 48 color choices, including stripes. Most of our covers are freestanding, although some patio umbrella designs work best with a table. For example, our Treasure Garden Market Aluminum 11-ft Octagon Collar Tilt Crank Lift Umbrella fits through a table and requires a heavy base in windy conditions. In addition, we have 276 options for patio umbrella stands.
In smaller yards, the ability to tilt and rotate to follow the sun might lead you to select our Bambrella Levante Siidewind 11-ft Square Crank Lift Manual Tilt Umbrella. Its 360-degree rotation and 45-degree tilt make it the perfect choice.
