Re: What Would You Call A Roof Over A Patio?


I typically call it a transitional space since it's technically transitioning from indoor to outdoor. Also, we had to use our home build folks to construct the roof so it's also transitioning from home to landscape design.

Love making spaces like these, even tho they take forever. Looks great in the end.

Re: What Would You Call A Roof Over A Patio?


Lanai would be more accurate than portico. Porticos are for entranceways.

On a residence, unless it's covering your front door, it's generally not a portico.

We have always called them a covered patio, but it seems as though more and more people are calling them "patio covers". We just did this gig below:

We call them awnings. Not sure where all these other phrases came from but that has always been the proper term to use. Maybe this is because I was born up north? I don't know.
