What’s the best deck covering?

If you have the opportunity to build a roof extension option, I think that’s best as long as you extend the deck beyond the covered portion so you have uncovered deck space too. This provides the most comprehensive deck shelter, yet gives you uncovered space to enjoy the sun.

If you have a deck with no cover, I really like the motorized retractable awning option. While it’s not as pretty as a pergola or custom-built pavilion, it’s extremely practical. A wide awning that extends 10 to 12 feet provides plenty of shelter that retracts with a click of the button.

Covers ain’t just for decks

Covered patios and porches are a popular option for outdoor enjoyment as well. While the difference between a porch and deck is obvious, the differences between a deck and patio can be kind of blurred, especially decks that are built on the ground.
