Use Your Patio Whenever You Want

Spending more time outside on your deck or patio is a common goal, but it can be tough when the weather isn’t cooperating. Rain, excessive heat, and direct sunlight can make an impact on how much we enjoy our outdoor spaces and can keep us stuck inside when we’d rather be outdoors. 

The solution? A patio cover from Forsman’s Finest. A patio cover allows you to spend time outdoors and be protected from the elements. It puts you, your family, and your guests in touch with nature on your own terms and increases the amount of time you can use your patio. 

Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider getting a patio cover:

Add Shade, Style, And Functionality To Your Home

After a long day at work, an hour of fresh air can be just the thing you need. What better place to relax than in the privacy of your own backyard?

We’re here to help you escape the dullness of being inside all the time. Just step outside to your covered patio. Pour a glass of lemonade (or wine!), bring your favorite book, and enjoy your backyard oasis. Or, if you’re feeling more social, gather the family or your friends for an outdoor cookout. 

As much as we know you love summer, a little bit of shade makes everything more relaxing. A patio cover provides that shade and also helps you decrease your indoor temperature and lower cooling costs. 

Frequently Asked Questions

The roofing will match the existing house as close as possible using locally sourced materials.

Most people add a cover to their patio or deck to provide shade and relief from the elements.  This allows you to be outside without getting hot or sunburned or to be protected from rain.  Spending time outside becomes comfortable and desirable instead of frustrating and unbearable.

How the roof slope ties into the house and the height at the low end of the slope will determine if this is possible. In some situations, a pergola is more practical. Any roof addition to cover a patio or deck will require new footings. This means the deck footings will need to be removed or the roof will have to sit on its own separate footings.

There are many styles of roof that can go over the patio. The most typical will be a single slope or shed roof, or a dual slope or gable roof that looks like an inverted V. The third option is a hip roof in which all sides of the new structure will have a sloped roof.
