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


In practice I tend to call it whatever the homeowner's calling it, at least until I get the job! Personally I call roofs like that awnings. A temporary or removable one with fabric would be a canopy.

Vaguely it would qualify as a "Veranda"...

Look it up.

A lanai isn't necessarily covered. A veranda is. I just say covered patio. If some contractor started coming around spewing words like lanai or veranda in my face I'd start seeing $$$$$$ in my head and I'd start running.

We've been calling it a gazebo but I was thinking they were more of an octagon shape

^^
Defiantly a gazebo.

Porches have elevated floors and patios are grounded (both attached to home) an awning is a temporary roof made of fabric, lean to is a roof attached to the lower portion of roof or upper portion of wall that leans towards the ground from a structure. Also, a porch has a roof and a deck does not.

In your case, you are building a "lean-to roof" and not a patio cover because a patio is just an idea of location.
