- Scout your neighborhood.
Many homes in Houston, especially those with extra space, have patio covers. Drive around your neighborhood and see what sort of patio covers your neighbors have. You want a patio cover that is similar in style. Like a roof, you don’t want a patio cover that sticks out like a sore thumb in the neighborhood. Your neighbors are also your biggest competition when it’s time to sell, so it pays to know what they have to offer prospects.Tip: You can also call us for this information.

- Stand out slightly.
While it’s a good idea to have a patio cover similar to what’s popular in the area, adding in a few features that make yours stand out is even better. How about adding decorative corbels to your basic pergola? Switching to an adjustable patio cover is also a great idea.
- Select high quality materials and professional installation.
Aside from the design of your patio cover, home buyers will also look at the quality of the materials you chose and the integrity of the installation. More often than not, most home buyers prefer professionally installed aluminum patio covers – both for the quality of its installation and material durability.
