Today I want to writing again about which type do you likes patio roof in your home or what kinds do you like type of patio roof. Following this ar several chapters that discuss the main coverings in detail and show in a hundred and fifty photographs how amateurs and professional have designed and installed patio roofs. From these photofraphs, you should be able to draw ideas for roof design and coverings thet cab be applied to your own house.
You can also find further ideas in two companion books, the Sunset Landscaping oook and patio bok. However, if your roof or window line are complex, you sould be wise to seek advice from professional designer.
Let us dispose of one problem at once: the annoying western sun. Many home owners mistakenly believe tht they can control the punishing ray of the late-afternoon sun by building an overhead. It is true than an outdoor roof can delay the penetration of the sun into your house for an hour or so, but a roof will not keep then sun away from people sitting under it on the patio.
The low slanting ray will come right in under the roof and fry you just as mercilessly as they did on your open patio. There is only one answer to the western sun : vertical screening. You can wall in the westerns side or a roofed patio or hang sun screens from the roof line, as sketched in the drawing.
The best protection of wall is a row of closely spaced tall shrubs or trees. Many people need the shade too urgently to wait the three to five years that the plants required to grow to a screening height. A sensible solution is to plant the trees and install temporary vertical screening while they grow.
