One of the benefits of living in south Louisiana’s warm tropical climate is that we can enjoy the outdoors and our backyards for a vast majority of the year. It’s not uncommon to breakout the shorts and flip flops in February and leave them on through October.
When the nonstop days of 90 plus degree afternoons roll in, being able to step out into your backyard and hop in the pool is a welcome escape from the heat. One element that is gaining in popularity, whether as part of a remodel or included in new construction, is a pavilion or covered patio as an extension of your home or standing alone near your pool.
There are a variety of options for this type of construction.
No matter how you design or use your pool pavilion, as with any area of your home, protecting it needs to be a key factor. And that all starts with the roof.
Keeping aesthetics in mind, you will want your new structure to blend in nicely with your existing roof. This can also raise the question of whether or not your existing roof is due to be replaced or repaired. Once that is assessed it is important to choose the right materials for your new extension. Whether you only have a table, chairs and grill under your new pavilion or flat screen TV and other electronics, having a securely designed and constructed roof will be as vital of a decision as what kind of stained concrete to put down.
