Vinyl patio covers are outdoor structures used to provide shade and protection from the elements. They are made of vinyl, a type of plastic material, which is known for its durability, low maintenance, and ability to resist fading, cracking, and warping.
Vinyl patio covers come in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes, and can be customized to fit any outdoor space. They are typically designed to be attached to the exterior of a house or other structure, and can be freestanding or attached to a pre-existing structure such as a pergola or deck.

Patio Covers Structural
Patio cover posts (The main vertical structural supports that are attached to the ground and support the beams, rafters, lattice, picket or solid top) can be set in the ground in a concrete footing or if properly engineered, may be attached to an existing concrete slab using a variety of other methods. Vinyl Fence Depot also fills the posts with concrete and rebar in order to create a solid permanent structure, this method gives our patio covers a much stronger finish both structurally and to the touch. Both beams (the horizontal members that usually go between the posts and support the rafters) and rafters (which usually span from the home to the main beams and support the shade components such as pickets, louvres, lattice or solid top) should be attached internally using a engineered connection system, as well as the proper internal enforcements such as a galvanized steel C-Channels to support weight, prevent sagging, bowing and an unsafe patio cover structure.
