This Lumon Patio Cover Transformed This Forest Park Home and Backyard!

Forest Park in Cincinnati Patio Cover AdditionOne of our most recent projects in the Forest Park neighborhood of Cincinnati is the addition of a Lumon Natural Light patio cover. Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is the local Lumon Patio Cover distributor and these patio covers are innovative and can totally transform a space.

These covers protect from damaging UV rays, sweltering summer heat and inclement weather, with shatter-resistant sheets that are backed by a 10-year hail warranty. Made from the most weatherable polymer on the market. Unlike plastic patio covers, ACRYLITE® will not yellow or become brittle, and we offer a 30-year non-yellowing warranty to back this guarantee.

Even though these are called patio covers, they are not solely engineered for just patios. For this particular project, we installed the cover over an existing deck and as the old adage goes a picture is worth 1,000 words

As you can see from the before and after images the difference is compelling. Not only does the new patio cover allow these avid birdwatchers unbridled outdoor enjoyment, the addition also creates minimal loss of light within the home. The reason we make mention of this is due to the fact many alternate covered outdoor living spaces can lead to a loss of natural light within the interior of the home itself. However, the nature of the Lumon patio cover enables plenty of sunlight to flow into the home with very little impact. The Forest Park homeowners actually mentioned that their kitchen seems brighter and lighter since the addition was installed!

These patio covers can be installed in a variety of settings, from brick, siding, and stucco walls to fascia and rooftop attachments. Virtually any application offers a versatile solution for your home in a wide range of sizes to turn any outdoor living space into an outdoor oasis.

Lumon’s patio systems are also available in glass, offering you full visibility in a sleek European design. Give your patio that wow factor! Our acrylic roof excels in hotter areas, as it blocks up to 75% of the sun’s heat while still letting in the natural light. In addition, these patio covers can be fully or partially enclosed to create a covered porch, patio or sunroom.

Increase you sense of home with a covered outdoor living space by Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio

Covered porch ceiling details in Waynesville OHConsidered to be some of the first architecture created, the covered outdoor living space fulfills our desire and need to stay dry when it rains and provides protection from the blazing sun. Can’t you just imagine the Flintstone-type structure with Fred and Barney gilling brontosaurus burgers on their Big STONE Egg? Little has changed throughout the years as it is still very much in our nature to enjoy being outdoors even though we often need protection from the elements. With the popularity of outdoor living ever-increasing, many style options of covered spaces which maximize outdoor livability are available.

Covered porches, screened porches, sunrooms, and three and four season rooms are great examples of sheltered outdoor rooms that extend living spaces and the hours of leisure at home. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio believes outdoor living spaces with roofs have a practical functionality while they define the room’s parameters and add architectural character. Often homes lack much architectural character, especially in the back. Adding a porch and roof adds that needed character with all the outdoor living benefits. Roofs can also be constructed over existing patios making them part of a combination outdoor living spaces. After all, if you like it, put a roof on it!

Screened Porch Interior

As a natural extension of your home’s footprint, a covered outdoor space significantly expands your living and entertaining space, providing a perfect gathering spot for guests and family who will be drawn from indoor areas to this enticing space. With so many covered space options we invite you to explore the benefits of each of these wonderful outdoor structures in order to help you gain better knowledge of which space would best suit your family’s backyard needs.

  • Waynesville OH covered porch and deck pavilionsThe Covered Porch – Also referred to as “open porches” because they are protected from sun and unpredictable summer rainstorms, the covered porch offers the benefit of circulating fresh air with the bonus of a roof that provides shelter from the elements.
  • The Screened Porch – Giving you all the benefits of a covered porch plus one additional big benefit…protection from bugs! Keeping insects such as mosquitoes out of your outdoor living space is a huge benefit of having a screened porch. Keeping the bugs at bay will enable you to enjoy your porch late into the night without worry of being outside at the same time as mosquitoes.

  • The Three-Season Room – Sturdier than your average screened in porch or enclosed deck, a three season room addition is a good option for homeowners who want to enjoy outdoor living in style but don’t need the living space available all year long. For the windows, we use single-pane glass windows or the Screen Eze porch enclosure system (the best of both worlds, screen when you want it, or a more enclosed “windowed” room when you want it too) for unfettered use of the space in spring, summer and fall.
  • Sunroom

    The Sunroom – Sometimes referred to as four season room, all-season or year round room, this option is integrated into the construction of your home, existing roof line and exterior. For ultimate climate control, we install insulated glass windows and insulation in the roof, floors and walls, for use of the room year-round.

No matter which type you choose, a covered outdoor area will maximize the time you can enjoy the space as well as provide added comfort and protection while outdoors, increasing your sense of home.
