Insulated Patios | Patio Roof Panels

Insulated patio roofs have been a rare feature of many homes in the past. However, in recent years, it’s taken off, with its insulating properties gaining immense popularity.

Insulated patio roof panels help regulate temperature, keeping your patio cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This can be a great way to extend the use of your patio, making it more comfortable for year-round use.

From extending your comfort and increasing your energy efficiency to improving the overall quality of your outdoor living, what’s not to love?

What separates insulated patio roofs from single skin patio covers?

The main difference between insulated and single skin patio roofing is the cooling and protecting properties. An insulated patio roof bonds high tensile roof sheeting with a high tensile pre-finished ceiling which gives insulated patio roofing its unique ability to fight the elements. This method of construction also gives insulated roofing a much increased roof span capability over single skin sheeting.

While a single skin patio cover is more affordable, a lack of insulation means that heat can pass through more quickly. Insulated patio roofing provides better protection from more extreme weather conditions, and keeps your outdoor living area cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Benefits of using insulated patio roofs

Patio roofs are not just a way to add more space to your home. They’re also a wonderful opportunity to improve the overall quality of your outdoor living experience and provide you with various benefits, including:

It improves your home’s aesthetic

Patio roofs come in various styles and colours, from insulated flyover roofs to custom designs, you can create a look perfect for your home or business. Match to your current house style, while getting the functionality that your outdoor space needs.

It increases the value of your home

The value of your home is always increased when functional outdoor living areas and spaces are included. If you’re looking to upgrade your home before selling, putting in a patio, verandah or even a carport will increase your house value exponentially.

From enjoying outdoor entertainment, working from home in the fresh air or even just a nice afternoon watching the sunset, it’s no wonder that patios increase home value. For insulated roofing, it’s double-fold, because it’s a space you can use all year round!

It improves your energy efficiency

Because it’s designed to keep the sun out during hot days, insulated roofing actually improves your energy efficiency. Its insulating ability allows you to keep cool in summer and warmer during the colder months. This puts less stress on your energy consumption without additional heating or cooling systems. 

And for those more extreme weather temperatures, you can even include an outdoor fan or heater to your insulated patio. These smaller inclusions to an insulated patio will boost your energy efficiency in your outdoor space!

It improves your comfort

Comfort is a top priority when designing an outdoor space. You want regulated temperatures and protection from the elements to relax and enjoy the fresh air. Insulated roof panels on your patio are the ideal roofing option, as it gives you maximum comfort with minimum effort!

It reduces noise pollution

Just as insulation absorbs heat to create regular temperatures, it can also absorb noise to a certain extent.  You’ll be able to entertain outdoors without the worry of the rain drowning out your conversations. Another situation that insulated roofing can help with, is overhead air traffic, reducing that loud noise so it doesn’t disturb those evenings outside. While not foolproof for loud parties, you’ll be able to entertain outdoors without the worry of your noise travelling.

This works both ways, with noise being dulled from neighbours, traffic and other street sounds, making your patio more peaceful.

It can hide electrical cables

Depending on how you want your insulated roofing to be built, we can develop a roof that’s designed to hide and protect  your electrical cables and prevent them from being seen. Those installed patio roof lights and fan cables that are usually easily viewed on single skin roof structures are no longer a problem with insulated roofing, as conduits and cables can be hidden within the roofing structure. 

For those wanting a clean, tidy and stylish patio, with lights and fans. A Trueline insulated patio can provide all those features without unsightly cables being visible.
