Are you researching the price of a covered patio? We are going to provide some updated pricing for porches to provide some guidelines.
While a simple square foot price can you get you part way there, there are many other considerations.
Is there an existing patio? Are there footings around the perimeter? Is the patio cover going to be attached to the house or free-standing? All of these questions affect the pricing of a covered patio. What is the roof line? A gable roof will cost slightly more than a shed roof and a hip roof or flat roof will add more than a gable. Is the roof going to be attached to the house wall or need to be tied into the existing roof line? When the roof needs to be tied into the existing shingles, it adds to the cost as well.
If you are figuring a roof over an existing patio of any substrate, you will need to add to this figure depending on the type of roofing, columns, footings, etc….
In today’s figures, we would say around $50 – 70 per square foot to cover a patio. If the roof will be less than 120 square feet, you will pay more per square foot due to the inefficiency of material and labor. You can see many covered patio designs at archadeckofcharlotte.com
