Skillion Patios are a perfect way to transform your dull backyard into an elegant and practical entertaining area for family and friends.
The term Skillion refers to the type of roof that is used on the patio. Skillion roofs are typically between 2 and 10 degrees in roof pitch depending on the functionality and desired appearance.
In many cases Skillion Patios are attached to the eave of your home however they are also a great modern alternative as a Free Standing Patio, whether it be as a poolside shelter or as a detached back yard entertaining area.
A Skillion Patio is often selected to showcase the ceiling lining (often Cedar) which looks stunning, particularly at night when accompanied with modern lighting.
We offer a number of patio lining options that work perfectly with our Skillion Patios:
– Glosswood (comes in a range of colours)
– Exterior Design Ply
– Woven Bamboo
– Gyprock / Plasterboard
A real benefit of the modern Skillion Patio design is that they are much more open than a traditional pitched patio and as a result let more of the winters sun into the area when positioned suitably.
