Deck & Patio Awnings

At BrightCovers®, we specialize in creating extended living spaces for both homes and businesses. Our deck and patio awnings provide a comfortable outdoor area to grill, entertain, relax and enjoy no matter the weather. By adding more outdoor living space homeowners not only increase their home’s usable square footage but also the value of their property.

Unlike traditional canvas or retractable awnings, our BrightCovers® awnings won’t darken adjacent rooms or bleach furniture, drapes, hardwood or carpeted floors due to the UV inhibitors on our Lexan® panels. Our patio covers can be attached to your wall, fascia, roof or can be made to be freestanding. Plus, our professional installation teams can install our covers in just 1-2 days depending on the size.

Our deck covers are sloped, ensuring that rain and snow are whisked away either over the edge or into our integrated structural gutter system. They can be anchored into your existing deck, provided it is properly footed. We manufacture our BrightCovers® from recycled materials of aluminum and Lexan® panels, making them both ecological friendly to the environment and durable with very little maintenance.

At BrightCovers®, we want to help you create a more comfortable area on your deck or patio so that you can enjoy your hot tub or outdoor space in comfort after a long day. Contact us today and let us design an awning to help you create the perfect outdoor living space for your home or business!

    Engineered to exceed local building codes and standards, our outdoor solutions withstand wind, snow, and hail, are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and will not corrode or rust over time.

  • Made in the USA with recyclable materials

    We are proud to support and employ the American workforce and use locally sourced materials in our Cleveland, OH facility.

  • UV Protection

    The Lexan® panels have a UV protective coating to block infrared and ultraviolet radiation, protecting against skin damage, as well as preventing materials such as patio furniture and carpet from fading over time.

  • Energy Efficient

    Since heat is reflected from the system and UV rays are blocked, our outdoor solutions help reduce energy usage and keep adjacent rooms and areas cooler.

  • Professional Installers

    Installed only by factory certified installers, BrightCovers® permanent outdoor roof and patio systems attach directly to your home or business and anchor to an existing deck, concrete footer, or cement slab.

  • Hail & Weather Resistant

    The Lexan® panels are virtually unbreakable and accommodate temperatures from extreme cold to baking hot conditions without breaking or buckling. The panels retain high impact strength performance over a wide temperature range (-40°F to 248°F) and after prolonged outdoor exposure. The 15 Year panel warranty covers loss of strength or impact resistance due to weathering.

  • Easy Clean & Care

    Rain naturally cleans the top of our roof panels. However, should dirt accumulate on the panels, simply wash the sheets with a mild dish soap, lukewarm water, and a clean soft sponge or cloth; rinse well with clean water. Do not use any corrosive materials or cleaning agents.

  • Protected with a Limited Lifetime Warranty

    Translucent LLC, manufacturer of BrightCovers®, offers a Lifetime Warranty against rust, a 90-Day Warranty against defects in materials and installation if the product is installed by Translucent LLC, and the polycarbonate panels are covered by an additional 15-Year Warranty.

  • Structural

    The BrightCovers® system is comprised of a structural aluminum frame and multi-wall translucent thermal glazing. Our single-slope patio roof cover is made with extremely durable multi-wall sheets that have excellent light transmission, high impact performance, and long-term weather resistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my BrightCovers® system rust?

 No. Only heavy-grade structural aluminum is used on a BrightCovers system, along with stainless steel fasteners to prevent any rust, corrosion or otherwise.

How do I clean my BrightCovers® system?

The BrightCovers® system is virtually maintenance-free. A heavy rain will naturally clean the top of the roof panels and system. If debris or markings remain after a heavy rain, the entire system can be cleaned with dish soap, lukewarm water, and a non-abrasive cloth rag. Windex or other chemical based solutions are not recommended as they may damage the panels over time. The aluminum components can be similarly cleaned with dish soap and water; a melamine sponge (household name: “Mr. Clean Magic Eraser”) can be used on any aluminum surface to remove dirt, grime, or otherwise should dish soap and water not suffice.

How much wind can my BrightCovers® system withstand?

The BrightCovers® system is engineered to exceed minimum building code requirements for wind loads based on your location.

How much snow load can my BrightCovers® system withstand?

The BrightCovers system is engineered to exceed minimum building code requirements for snow loads based on your location as per both 2012 and 2015 International Building Code requirements (60+ pounds per square foot live load).

Can I grill under my BrightCovers® system?

Absolutely! The panels can withstand temperatures over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit of direct heat. Should any dirt or soot accumulate, the panels can be cleaned according to our cleaning recommendations.

How can I attach lights / curtains to my BrightCovers®?

We recommend purchasing clips or clampable hooks that can attach to the support beams. We do not recommend drilling into the BrightCovers system, as it may void your warranty.
