Benefits of Installing an Insulated Patio Cover

Professionally installed Insulated Patio Cover

Temperature Control

Insulated patio covers help regulate the temperature of the space beneath them.   This is especially important in the Charleston, SC area.  Many homeowners find that after installing a sheet metal patio cover, they have only compounded the heat problem, turning their porch into an oven!  Insulated panels keep the ceiling cool and provide shade during hot days, reducing the heat that enters your home and making the outdoor area more comfortable.  Some patio furniture when exposed to the South Carolina sun can heat up so much that it cannot be used.  Children’s toys, wading pools and even the dog’s water bowl can be too hot to use.  After Cool Shade installs your new insulated patio cover, you will surely feel the difference.  

Energy Efficiency
