Thanks to outdoor covers, such as canopies or pergolas, your outdoor space can be used as a garage for your car, as a storage room, or as a semi-covered space where you can organize lunches and dinners to celebrate your special moments.

Outdoor roofing: what are they for?


Outdoor covers are more than just a «roof», they help you define your outdoor space. There are various types of outdoor coverings, to be chosen not only based on the style of your home, so as not to make it seem like an object separate from the house complex, but also based on atmospheric agents: it is important to choose the right material, so to minimize maintenance.

Think also of the material: if aluminum or iron canopies can still give a nice aesthetic result, a pergola requires wood most of the time. Choose the style and materials that best suit your outdoor coverings.
