It’s often said that we like to live outdoors in Australia, and in the Adelaide summer, that couldn’t be truer. When the sun is shining we congregate around barbecues, pools, picnic spreads and backyard cricket sessions. But, unfortunately for us Aussies, going home with a scorched neck and beetroot red nose is all too common. Australians are great at staying sun smart when out and about, but when it comes to our own backyards we can become complacent and forget to slip, slop, and slap.
If you’ve got an open outdoor area, installing a patio or pergolais a great way to enjoy the outdoors and entertain family and friends without copping the full brunt of the harsh Adelaide sun. You can still enjoy your outdoor barbecues and poolside get-togethers, but enjoy it all under the comfort of a shaded roof. This summer is set to be a scorcher, with temperatures predicted to average around 30 degrees Celsius over the summer.
Don’t leave in too late to install a patio this year – get in early before the heat sets in and start enjoying your outdoor area now.
Whether it’s a free-standing round pergola that adds colonial charm to your garden, or a contemporary angular patio to keep you covered by the pool, there’s a huge range of designs to suit every back yard. The right design for your space will depend on your personal tastes in colours and materials and the designs available to fit your area.
At Aldinga Home Improvements Adelaide, we stock a massive range of colours for you to choose from and we offer façades in Modern, Federation and Contemporary designs. Drop in to our Aldinga Beach store, or one of our display sites in Enfield and Goolwa to look at your options. While we can provide images of our patio and pergola design options, we recommend coming into the store to view the range in person.
Our patio roof designs include pitched roof designs, which are the classic pitched tent shape, flat roof designs for a modern look and curved roof designs, which add depth to your home’s architecture. We also suggest installing roof insulation for added comfort in high-use areas. Installing patio roof insulation is great for keeping the shaded area cool in summer and containing the warmth in winter. We can even fit outdoor blinds around the patio to extend your living space.
