BrightCovers® Products transform any outdoor space into a comfortable, healthy living area for year-round enjoyment.
Patio & Deck Covers
BrightCovers® provides an extended living space to your home or business by creating a covered space over your current deck or patio. Homeowners have found by adding an outdoor living area adds usable square footage that also increases the value of their home. Also the benefit of having a BrightCovers® over their patio: it will not darken adjacent rooms like traditional canvas or retractable awnings, as well as prevent their furniture, drapes, hardwood or carpeted floors from bleaching because of the UV inhibitors that is on the Lexan® panels. Our deck cover systems attach to your wall, fascia, roof or make it freestanding. Plus, you now always have a comfortable outdoor area to grill, entertain, relax and enjoy – no matter the weather.
Create a more comfortable area on your deck so that you can enjoy your hot tub or your outdoor patio space after a long day in comfort. Our deck roof covers can be anchored into your existing deck provided it is properly footed. Our professional installation teams can install in 1-2 days depending on the size. Each deck cover is sloped so that the rain and snow is whisked away either over the edge or into our integrated structural gutter system. BrightCovers® is manufactured from recycled materials of aluminum and Lexan® panels so that is ecological friendly to the environment as well as providing many years of enjoyment with very little maintenance.
The Awning Alternative
Take a look at how light filters through the permanent system and creates a softly lit, healthy alternative to the traditional commercial awning, sun canopy, or sunshade. If you have ever owned or installed a canvas awning, you know how it turns the covered area (and adjacent living areas) into a cave and makes you think, “It’s clear and sunny outside, why am I sitting in the dark?” With the BrightCovers® system, the sun’s natural light will permeate throughout, providing a healthy, comfortable, and refreshing outdoor living space.
BrightCovers® designs, manufactures and installs the strongest and most weather-resistant light-transmitting Patio Covers on the market. The engineered roof system reduces heat build-up , safeguards against harmful solar radiation and UV rays, and best of all, allows the sun’s natural light to enter.
