How to Cover a Concrete Patio

Here’s how to cover an existing concrete patio: 

Idea #1: Add a Pergola

If you love your concrete patio but just want to add a little something, a patio cover is the way to go. We offer pergola construction services in Albany and the surrounding cities. What is a pergola exactly? It’s an outdoor structure that includes columns and rafters on the roof. 

While it’s usually used for gardens, it’s also great for patios and other outdoor living areas. It can be uncovered or covered, depending on the style you want. The outdoor covers we make include wood, and we can wrap that material upon request with fiber-cement siding to help draw the eye. We are also happy to paint or stain the wood to bring the look together and help create the outdoor living space of your dreams.

Idea #2: Use Decking

Another option to enhance your concrete patio is to put in a deck. You can hire a contractor to add a wood or composite deck on top of concrete as long as the current concrete is in good condition. 

There’s a good chance you won’t have to take out the existing concrete if the condition is good. What your contractor can do is enter the slab and put in a footer and post to get your deck set up as envisioned.
