Lean-To Patio Room

Lean to Patio rooms are the simplest type of patio enclosures to design and build. Even though they are the simplest of the patio rooms, they should be designed and integrated as part of the existing house and not just an add-on glass structure.

All of the exterior and interior of the patio room is mostly extruded aluminum or vinyl clad. The size and shape may vary as well as the glass selection and frame colors.

Straight eave lean-to patio room adds a sense of space and lightness to a house. It transforms existing patio or deck into living area. Filling the patio room with plants creates a sense of outdoor living.

Modern patio rooms are designed to be used throughout the four seasons of the year. Originally, most of the patio enclosures were designed and built to be used mainly in mild weather to provide protection from rain and wind. Many patio rooms were both too hot in the summer and too cold in winter.

The materials used in construction of patio rooms were originally just steel. Now with new technology, owners have several choices; wood, aluminum or vinyl—depending on desire and budget. Buyers can choose from the most expensive, exotic hardwoods to the least: aluminum or vinyl. Most of the patio enclosures are designed with insulated roofs and high performance glass in walls. Many owners, especially in warmer climates, choose to build more a conventional roof with a tile or shingle overlay.
