Today, patios are much more than just exterior recreational spaces for homeowners. They are seen as one critical element of design that connects the tamed indoors with the rugged outdoors. There has been a shift from “bringing the outdoors in” to “taking the inside out.”

However, creating a sophisticated outdoor living arrangement comes with the need to take measures against its main nemesis—inclement weather! Adverse weather conditions or even prolonged exposure to sun, rain, and wind,, can easily damage or even destroy your luxurious outdoor oasis and cost thousands in repairs and redecoration.

Fortunately, there is a solution: to invest in a durable and attractive aluminum patio cover. Protecting the outdoor spaces with patio covers is increasingly popular with pragmatic American homeowners. Not only do they protect your patio surfaces and belongings from harsh and unpredictable weather, but help make your outdoor spaces usable all year round. Aluminum, a heat-tolerant, durable, and low-maintenance alternative to wooden covers, also allows for many variations, a win-win in color, design, and durability.

If you live in and around South-Central Texas and are looking to create your own outdoor oasis with reliable aluminum shade structures, then look no further than Bluebonnet Patio Covers. With an immaculate history in this highly technical industry, we can cater to all your outdoor living dreams—from design and installation to top-notch after-sale service. We have a wide range of customizable offerings for all your residential, commercial, and industrial premier patio roofing needs.

Alumawood® Shade Structures
Our Alumawood Pergolas are a great alternative to traditional wood. The integrated wood texture gives the appeal of real wood without tedious maintenance and upkeep. Our structure comes with the manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty, ensuring you peace of mind for years to come.

We offer four distinct decorative rafter end solutions so you can pick a design that suits your own unique style. This wonderful pergola is sure to be a wonderful addition to your backyard and give you years of enjoyment and carefree use. You can also incorporate a double 2×6 beam or a 3×8 beam for an even larger and substantial appeal. All the materials come in powder-coated aluminum that washes off easily and can endure those harsh Texas climates. Additionally, decorative 6-inch and 8-inch columns can be added for a distinctive appearance with a larger post to enhance any aluminum patio design!

SNAP-N-LOCK™ Structural Insulated Panels
Snap-n-lock panel roof system is an affordable and attractive option for your patio space. This aluminum patio cover comes in 3 design packages. The standard package is a quick and affordable way to create shade in only one day and includes a side balance and gutter. The Santa Fe option adds decorative ends and upgraded rafter side balances for a natural wood appeal with the durability of aluminum. The hard top package adds decorative rafters for an open-rafter look and feel. Customizable with numerous color options for the panels and framings, this system offers optional frame beams that can be integrated into the panels to hide wiring and create a structural attachment for any fans and lighting. Additionally, we can also incorporate 2×4 ft skylights to bathe your outdoor living space with natural light.

Equinox® Louvered Roof Systems

Manufactured from our high-temperature extruded aluminum that gives it exceptional high-tensile strength, Equinox® Louvered Roof systems are also customizable to integrate flawlessly into any architectural style, with options such as gable roofs, bay windows, doors, and even angled roofs and walls. One of the most versatile options in outdoor living, this aluminum shade structure can go from providing full shade to no cover with just a click of a button. This allows you to let the sunlight shine down into your outdoor living room whenever you desire. The five color options allow you to accent your home’s design. The Equinox system’s power can be supplied by the sun via a discreetly-mounted solar box, making this system an economically sustainable choice, or operate with a traditional transformer for large commercial operations or for homeowners who wish to utilize a direct power source. One of the more ingenious features of the Equinox® Louvered Roof system is its built-in gutter system. At installation, the louvered roof is precisely angled to ensure that rainwater flows into the gutters along the perimeter of the system. This hurricane-rated system comes with a 20-year manufacturer warranty on the finish and a 5-year warranty on the electronic components giving complete peace of mind no matter the weather.

Retractable Awnings
This shading solution can be conveniently mounted on the wall or on the roof. With a simple hand crank or the convenience of an optional motor, your awning will instantly shield you and your patio from the natural elements. On cloudy days or when not in use, your awning is completely self-storing, thereby eliminating the need for seasonal removal and storage.
