One of the most common calls we get for a patio cover is to cover a leaking deck or balcony. Usually the homeowner has tried several methods to fix the leak. Usually all the methods fail. “Water always wins.” A leak on a deck or balcony is almost impossible to fix.
A solid patio cover, either flat pan or insulated, will usually do the job. The cover is installed with a one to two foot overhand and always comes with a gutter and downspout. The overhand is to prevent rain from dripping into the balcony.
The additional benefit is that the windows and doors will also be protected and the rooms adjacent to the balcony will be much cooler. If you are concerned about the loss of light coming into the room look at our polycarbonate covers.
