Laminated Panel

Adds a Permanent roof that is integrated with your current roof line.
Single story houses often do not have enough pitch for a fabric awning. Laminated Panel roofs are almost flat for more ceiling height
Fast Construction. A 10 year factory finish is applied on both sides so there is no need for another ceiling or for painting…ever.
NOT noisy a tin roof. Laminated panels are factory assembled with insulation already inside.
Typically mounts where the gutter meets the facia, flashing brings water from the house roof onto the Lamninated panel roof. A built in gutter catches the water and channels it to downspouts.
Special Fan Beams will support ceiling fans and other hanging items.
Since it is prefinished and preinsulated, this makes a perfect starter for someone with future plans to enclose the area and make it another room
The rigid construction makes these panels so strong, 4 or 5 people can walk on them. Makes it easy to clean the gutters.
Insect curtains make this an instant screened porch. Pull the curtains back when not needed and let more light in and make access to the yard easier.
