Our customer, Paul approached us with a requirement for a canopy to cover his patio area at the rear of his property. Paul previously had a gazebo covering his patio area, but the material on the top kept on ripping allowing rain to enter. Paul wanted something more substantial and permanent.
During our survey with Paul, we came across a few limitation, such as aco drains and sensible post positions. As Paul’s right property wall consisted of just windows and doors, we were not able to use wall attached posts. Therefore we had to use in-the-ground bespoke cranked posts to support the eaves beam. We also had to consider the door to Paul’s workshop when situating the leg post.
Paul’s garden naturally gathered a lot of rain water due to there not being an aco drain for the water to escape to. Paul therefore organised for an aco drain to be installed around his patio area, this allowed us to position our post in line with the soakaway giving the water an escape route.
The patio canopy drawings were signed off and Paul chose to have the structure powder coated in Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) which would provide a contemporary look to Paul’s property. He then chose clear polycarbonate for the roof, which would allow the maximum light transmission to the windows, doors, and the kitchen area beneath.
Once a manufactured date had been confirmed, our project management team arranged a suitable date for Paul’s patio canopy to be delivered and erected.
Once installation started, the canopy took shape quite quickly and by the end of the first day, the structure was bolted together, glazed with polycarbonate and secured in the ground.
Paul is overjoyed with his brand new Patio Canopy and we are proud to have delivered a safe, high-quality product at an affordable price.
