Your family can use a patio more often with a nice patio awning. If you build a courtyard roof that is waterproof, you can hold more activities in the area. Some families put media equipment in a courtyard by constructing built-in protected against the elements. Building a awning from the bottom takes longer than ordering a factory-made metal awning, but you can design it to suit your family’s needs if you construct it from the bottom.
Measure existing dimensions of your terrace. Decide to expand the floor space area before designing a patio awning cover. Start by making sketches of the awning you imagine. Go online to get ideas for a wooden structure that will harmonize with the architecture of your house. You should outline the line in the awning to oblique at least 12 inches from top to bottom to allow rain and snow drainage.
Enable using a carpenter or builder to assess the weight of the patio awning. Obtain a building permit. You must buy support positions, support bars and frames in the right dimensions. Buy support positions in dimensions your carpenter recommends. Posts should never be less than 4 inches with 4 inches square. Use salt-treated wood.
