      We researched all the best patio cover options

      The best value patio cover is an Eclipse Opening Roof

      When looking into all the different patio cover options, we based the decision on style, function, warranty and value for money. The Eclipse Opening Roof was highly customisable to integrate with any home or outdoor area. It has the longest warranty compared to all other products and is built to withstand high winds and harsh weather, all year round. We got a free design consultation and a quote that worked with our budget. The final choice was easy.

      Why we don’t install retractable patio covers

      Patio covers extend the usable space of your home all year round, if done correctly with an Eclipse Opening Roof.

      Your patio no longer has to feel empty and vulnerable to the outside elements and wandering eyes. You will have total control over your roof louvres, to let in or shut out as much sunlight as you like.

      With retractable patio covers, you can have your patio closed or open – that’s it. But to enjoy full control and comfort any time of day or night, you should install an opening roof. This means you can have the roof slightly or fully opened as desired, which comes in handy for outdoor cooking and entertaining.

      If you choose a retractable patio cover solution, you may be disappointed with unexpected maintenance and replacements on major parts. With an Eclipse Opening Roof, maintenance is simple and all parts are guaranteed to never rust. All louvres, gutters and posts are made from aluminium, with a selection of high quality coatings and long warranties. The motor is made from marine grade stainless steel. The entire system is built to last Australian conditions.

      If you want the very best patio cover solution, choose the Eclipse Opening Roof, installed by Opening Roof Specialists.
