Alfresco Living Patio Canopy Installed in Rochester

Our customer approached us with a requirement of an alfresco living patio canopy. Due to our approach to protecting potential living space from the elements, the patio canopy for this particular customer was right up our street as our canopies are designed to look modern, sleek and contemporary.


Our customer chose to have their frame powder coated Jet Black (RAL 9005) and 10mm clear polycarbonate sheets. This blended in perfectly with the rest of the house and the customers bespoke requirements. Our remit was to create an alfresco living patio canopy that was amazing to look at, as well as practical for the customer to be able to enjoy the great outdoors, all year round. We also had to overcome a budget challenge to ensure the canopy would be within the customers price range, but also covered all of the patio.

This particular patio canopy had to feature a curved roof, which spanned 14 metres in length, this is to ensure the drainage would be successful across the span of the patio and to avoid the orangery. We were chosen by the customer as we specialise in beautiful made-to-measure designs that are fabricated from steel and are built-to-last.

Following our estimate, we organised a site survey so that we could check the ground, site and determine final post positions and measurements. Following this, our surveyor and client established that all posts and footplates could be buried 100mm below zero terrain with the surface finished above.

After consulting our structural engineers we calculated a price for the final solution, including installation, full structural calculations and all of the customisations required such as the aluminium slated wall infills. Our very competitive price was accepted and we carefully planned the bespoke CAD drawings, which quickly became production drawings following great communication with our client.

Once the patio canopy had been manufactured, our project management team organised a suitable date for the canopy to be installed, which needed to fit in with our customer’s busy schedule. The installation was completed in two days and it was evident that our client was more than happy following their inspection!
