Choosing the Right Patio for Your Home

Are you an entertainer, with friends and family always gathered around your outdoor setting? Or are you looking to build an outdoor oasis for relaxing? Maybe you’re just in the market for a new carport to keep your car protected from the elements.

Upgrading your home with a brand new patio or carport can be incredibly exciting, but how do you know what type of patio is best suited to your home and your needs?

Your choice ultimately comes down to budget, use and location, as well as the existing architecture of your home.

No matter what your intentions are, Patio Perfect are proud to offer the full range of Stratco Outback® and Homeline patios in Perth, with a team who are experts and building and installing these quality outdoor patios, alfresco areas, pergolas and carports.


Benefits of Investing in a Patio

The  Commonwealth Bank once issued a statement saying a good quality patio can increase a home’s value by double the cost!

Other than the inherent value of a well-built patio, a personalised outdoor patio can decrease your lawn and garden maintenance, give you an entertaining space, provide your car, caravan or boat with protection and give you a personalised space to really kick back, relax and enjoy your outdoor space.


Carport Designs


While you may think a carport is just made to cover your car, boat or caravan and protect them from the elements, a well-designed carport in Perth can actually add value to your home.

Carports come in a range of styles and colours, allowing them to blend seamlessly into your home’s design.

You can find Straco Outback® carports in both gable and flat roof styles. Gabled carports are popular among our customers – they can keep the space cooler due to the pitched roof design, while also giving a homely feel to the area.

Flat roof car ports are a great choice for those looking to achieve a minimalistic design while also keeping their project costs low.

Both gable and flat style carports can be installed as freestanding or can be attached to your home, giving you the flexibility to design your ideal carport in Perth.


Gabled Patios


If you want a patio with a classic pitched roof shape that gives the illusion of more space, you can’t go past a gabled patio from the Stratco Outback® range.

Thanks to their versatility and stunning looks, gabled patios are a very popular choice. They can be used both in small and large areas to give the illusion of space, as well as to cool the space down using the pitched roof as a natural insulator.

The Stratco range of gabled patios come in a variety of designs, from solid colour roof sheets to clear sheets that will allow you to enjoy the weather year round in protected comfort.


Flat Patios

Flat patios, as the name suggests, are horizontal, flat roof structures that can be used as a carport or a backyard alfresco. This style works particularly well for smaller spaces, blending seamlessly into the existing style of your home.

Stratco’s range of Outback® flat patios can be combined with other styles to create a totally unique design that complements your home.


Curved Patios

If you are after something a little different that will give your outdoor area a sleek, contemporary look, then a curved patio might just be the design for you.

Curved patios come in two options; multispan and clearspan. The multispan curved roof has beams, or purlins, that are placed over the rafters in the roof, which support cladding.

The clearspan curved patio design uses a strong material to minimise the need for support beams, creating more of a sleek appearance.

Curved patios are the perfect choice for larger outdoor areas, with the heightened curved roof space accentuating the size of your outdoor space.

With the smooth, clean lines of the curved patio roof, working in harmony with the alluring earthy tones of the Stratco Outback® framing range, you can add another dimension of design to your outdoor space.

Whether you love catching those morning sun rays or laying back on the couch to count the stars, Stratco Outback® Sunroof patios put the power in your hands, allowing you to control the weather and your view!

This innovative range of outdoor patio designs allow you to open and close the louvres in the roof via remote control to achieve your desired amount of sunlight or protection against the weather.

There are two choices of design – flat and gabled. Both these options have the electronic louvres with built-in rain sensors which cause the louvres to automatically close if rain is detected.

As you can imagine, this patio type is incredibly popular in Australia, with the flexible and innovative design giving homeowners a huge variety of design options.
