Patio Cover Designs

Whether you already know what kind of patio cover you want, or you just need some patio cover ideas, it never hurts to look at some patio cover designs. Valley patios offers more patio cover styles than any other company in the Coachella Valley. This allows you to get the perfect shade structure for your needs. 

Lattice Patio Covers

Lattice patio covers are the most common type of aluminum-wood cover that we install. This type of cover provides about 75% shade, leaving some sun for the winter months. This patio cover design most closely resembles a wood patio cover, but will not crack. It is easy to install lights or fans on this style of patio cover. Check out the Lattice Patio Covers page for more info, or look at examples on the lattice photo gallery.

Solid Roof Patio Covers

Solid roof patio covers are also common around the area. This patio cover style provides 100% shade and has the bonus of being water resistant, so you can enjoy your patio even during a rainstorm. It is easy to install outdoor fans and outdoor lighting on this patio cover design as well. Check out our Solid Patio Covers page for more information, or browse through the solid cover photos.

Tension Shade Sail Structures

Tension structures are a unique shade structure in the Southern California Area. You have seen these shade sails above parks, but not very often in the backyards. Valley Patios believes that tension structures will become more popular as people are exposed to them. They provide more shade than a lattice cover, and they look amazing! For a more extensive description, check out our Shade Sails page or browse through the tension structure photos.

Patio Awnings

If you are looking for a more permanent and durable patio awning, then an aluminum-wood awning is perfect for you! Aluminum-wood patio awnings can withstand the strong winds, so you'll never have to worry about your awning failing during a windstorm. Aluminum-wood looks like real wood, but will not crack or attract bugs. This gives it lasting beauty, which means lasting value for you! Take a look at our Patio Awnings page or browse trough the patio awnings photos.

Retractable Awnings

Retractable patio awnings are made of a high tensile strength fabric that provides up to 95% shade. Attached to your house is the storage for the retractable patio awning. The fabric is attached to two elbows that collapse into the storage container. If you have a motorized patio awning, all you have to do is press a button and watch as your awning rolls out to provide shade. Check out our Retractable Awnings page or look through the retractable awnings photos.

Custom Shade Structures

Our custom designed gazebos will provide sun protection for your windows, barbecue, patio furniture, pool deck, etc. Keeping the desert sun off your furniture will make sure that it stays looking good for years to come. With a new gazebo, you'll be able to enjoy your backyard all the time, not just when weather permits. Check out our Custom Shade Structures page or browse through the custom shade structures photos.
