What are patios?

A patio is often situated in the backyard area of a house, designed with luxury and relaxation as the core themes. Essentially, an outdoor patio is an extension of the house, adding a patio will make the backyard area more spacious and inviting for guests and family members. Allowing anyone to enjoy the outdoors at any time for entertainment or recreational purposes.

Whether you are wanting to host dinner parties, intimate gatherings, game nights, or wanting to enjoy a glass of wine, or read a book, adding a patio is the perfect solution for all these occasions and more. If you are thinking about building a custom patio specifically for your home, contact Trueline.

The benefits of building an outdoor patio

The use of a patio is non seasonal and can be enjoyed during both winter months and warmer months. Amongst the benefits of spending more time outdoors in the comfort of your own home that a patio can provide, the below are additional positive attributes that come with adding a backyard patio.

It provides a place to relax

Patios allow you to unwind and enjoy the nature around you in your backyard. Sit back, have a cup of coffee or enjoy lunch and dinner with friends or family while enjoying the fresh air and sun.
Having designated outdoor spaces to relax in the comfort of your own home is essential to maximising your down time efficiently.

For added luxury and comfort, you could include extra lounge chairs, other furniture and decorations to enhance your relaxation experience.

Additional recreational outdoor space

A patio can be used as an additional recreational area and an extension to your living room. Creating a cohesive space for family and friends to gather during events. The outdoor structure with a customisable roof offers protection from direct sunlight and rain. Allowing you to enjoy the outdoors regardless of weather conditions.

It can increase the value of your home

If you ever decide to sell your house, having an existing outdoor patio can increase the value of the property. When people are searching for their next home, the existence of an outdoor area can really be a deciding factor. Additionally, the increase in value of your property can cover the initial costs of building a patio with plenty to spare.

It gives you extra storage space

Expanding your home with an outdoor patio can double down as extra storage space to help declutter areas inside the house. Such as having an outdoor kitchen or dining area could halve the storage spaces being used up inside the house.

What are the different types of patios available at Trueline?

Understanding the different types of patios and their functions, and determining whether it is the appropriate option for your house is the first step towards creating a new space in your backyard.

Louvered Patios

Trueline Louvered Pergolaire

A louvered patio is a modern patio that features adjustable opening and closing blades on the roof, allowing you to control the amount of light and airflow that enters the patio area. This type of patio combines protection, style and durability all in one that suits a variety of weather conditions.

Additionally, with endless decor options, it is often represented as a stylish, functional and modern addition to any home.

The Trueline Pergolaire Louvered Roof is made from high tensile marine grade aluminium. Combined with an all Aluminium frame makes it suitable for all home environments – including those living in coastal sea-side suburbs.

Insulated Patios

Trueline Insulated Patio

Insulated patios feature panels that help regulate temperature and reduce noise pollution. This type of insulation is achieved through the use of an EPS (extruded polystyrene) core that is sandwiched between two outer sheets of painted high tensile steel. A great addition to your home to stabilise the temperature during extreme weather conditions in summer and winter seasons, allowing you to reduce the costs to heat or cool the area when required. The effects before and after adding an Insulated Patio Roof are simply night and day!

This type of patio is the go to option for homeowners seeking a practical and energy-efficient solution.

Aluminium / Steel Patios

Trueline Patio coolskin

An aluminium or steel patio is designed with durability and low-maintenance as the key focus whilst maintaining the essence of quality outdoor living design. This is achieved by using aluminium for coastal environments, a durable lightweight material that is rust and decay resistant. Steel patios complement this single skin roofing range where the effects of harsh marine environments aren’t a concern.

This outdoor patio option can be custom built for a variety of designs and sizes to achieve a modern and sleek look.

Aluminium patios are a popular choice among homeowners for its functional and reliable qualities at an affordable price.

Frequently asked questions

What do you call an outdoor patio with a roof?

This is commonly referred to as a covered patio or a roofed patio that can protect the covered area.

How can I make my patio look nice?

There are a variety of creative and affordable ways to make your patio look nice, including:

  1. Invest in comfortable outdoor furniture such as an outdoor sofa, tables, lounge chairs etc.
  2. Match all decor and furniture with appropriate colour schemes.
  3. Decorate the roof and walls with string lights
  4. Create a small garden area or include potted plants
  5. Use outdoor rugs
  6. Include small decors around the sitting area and dining table

What’s the difference between a patio vs Alfresco?

Alfrescos are usually built as an extension of the house with a seamless appearance of being part of the original roof structure. Whereas patios are additional structures attached to the existing building without changing the original roof design. However, both a patio and alfresco refer to an outdoor living space for entertainment and recreational purposes. 

What’s the difference between a patio vs a pergola?

The main difference between a patio and a pergola is the style of structure and roofing that it is built with.

We define Patios as a non-pervious roofing structure that has an attached gutter that takes water away. This engineered structure usually consists of posts, beams, gutters, downpipes and roofing that protects the space from the elements.

On the other hand, pergolas are primarily a non-roofed outdoor structure that are used as an architectural design to enhance your outdoor area. A pergola does not typically have a protective style roof, meaning that natural elements such as sun and rain are able to pass through the structure. Pergolas are usually constructed from posts and beams with options for shade cover. Shade covering can include laser cut screening, aluminium battens or even a shade cloth. Pergolas traditionally work well with gardens by including climbing plants to amplify its beauty.

What’s the difference between using timber and steel when building a patio?

The main differences between using timber and steel include styling and maintenance preferences. Timber will require more maintenance such as applying stains or repainting, however the design options may be more suited to match the overall style of the house. Steel will not require repainting and already has a finished glossy and cleaner look. Steel is a preferred option for low maintenance and durability characteristics.

At Trueline we have a long history using many types of structural materials such as Aluminium Posts and Beams – great for coastal environments!

How long does it take to install a patio?

The usual time frame from start to finish ranges from one day to several weeks, depending on the layouts and complexities of the designs and additional features to include. Other factors to consider that may change the time necessary to complete the patio include material choice and availability, weather conditions, additions or upgrades, and any obstacles that may or may not come up.

Trueline has a solid reputation for problem solving and giving customers the very best stress free experience possible.

How much does it cost to install a patio?

The price for a patio ranges from $3,000 to $130,000. The cost to build a patio will vary depending on your preferences, such as size, design and materials.

We’ve built some very large, complex projects in fact, in addition to smaller patio projects, we’re experts in high value complex builds with our decades of experience building patios, carports, verandahs and pergolas.
