3 Ideal Outdoor Patio Covers in 2020

Many single-family homes have a patio where homeowners can relax and enjoy fresh air, even when the weather isn’t ideal. A patio cover provides shade to the area so it remains cool in hot weather. Traditionally, people have made outdoor patio covers from wood.

But these covers are more likely to sustain weather damage over time due to harsh environmental conditions. They eventually fade, and the paint peels off. Wood is also susceptible to pests, such as termites. As a result, homeowners increasingly show interest in durable and maintenance-free outdoor patio covers.


Duracool manufactures one of the best options for resilient, maintenance-free patio covers. Manufacturers offer them a wide range of finishes, providing the appearance of wood while delivering the benefits of aluminum.

Since these patio covers utilize high-quality materials, they eliminate the need for painting. They are resistant to rot and immune to damage by termites or other pests. Also, homeowners may opt to install additional lighting or fans on these covers, which can help to ensure that residents and guests stay cool and enjoy spending time outdoors at night.


These patio covers are available in various designs to suit all home aesthetics and tastes. Some property owners may prefer a patio cover that they can adjust based on how they use it.

For example, if it’s raining during a party, one may wish to cover the entire area to shelter guests. In this case, a retractable patio cover may be the best option. Adjusting this coverage is easy, and you also have the option to insulate, trellis, or design the patio covers to be open or closed.

Shapes and Colors

Though most patio covers are rectangular, oval patio table covers may be suitable for some yards.

The wood texture finish is one of the most popular finishes for patio covers. It looks like wood but requires minimal maintenance of aluminum. DuraCool offers various colors: white, Spanish brown, Mojave Tan, Latte, Champagne, Almond, and Grey Adobe. With all these options, you can choose the right shade to match the design and decor of your house.
