At Action Sheetmetal & Roofing our patios allow your insulated roof panel patio to fit seamlessly with your existing roof, matching it in style and profile. They are resistant to dust and mould, the rebated foam is flush with the roof profile which stops spiders and other unwelcome guests from entering your roofing.
Insulated roofing panels provide great coverage over your outdoor entertaining areas year round and are often used to create an outdoor room. If you are planning on renovating or extending your living areas then an enclosed outdoor room can be a really cost effective option.

Free standing patio available in Colorbond or insulated roof panelsThe free standing patio is as its name suggests, free standing from any other structure. Often used around pools or a feature within a garden or larger yard. Free standing patios can utilise long spans of roofing if they are open on all four sides.
Fly over patio available in Colorbond or insulated roof panels
The fly over patio has its roof line start above the lowest point of the main roof and extends back up the main roof and may on occasion go over the apex of the existing roof. It allows for more height at the far end of the roof and if the house is low set may be required to meet the minimum height requirements. Fly over patios also allow good airflow through the patio which is great in summer. Technically the same as a skillion - we just differentiate them as they require some different engineering for the roof extender brackets and addition beam.
Gable roof patio available in Colorbond or insulated roof panels
A gable roof patio has a roof that is pitched on two sides, usually equally, to match an existing roof line or to allow for fans or hanging lights. Some people like to infill the open ends, while others don't. it's entirely up to you. Most gable patios are installed by builders or professional roofers as opposed to the DIYer. One of the benefits of the increased pitch on a gable patio is that the noise from heavy rain is lower than a very flat skillion roof.
Skillion patio Gable roof patio available in Colorbond or insulated roof panels
The skillion is the most commonly used patio roof. It is often fixed to the end chords of the truss below the gutter line. Insulated panel roofing can span for long distances at a very low pitch which allows renovators to cover larger entertaining areas simply and cost effectively. One downside can be the noise of heavy rain if the roof is too flat. A lesson we have learnt through experience. Skillions are a great option - just make sure you have enough pitch!
At Action Sheetmetal & Roofing we only deal with reputable manufacturers like Bondor’s Solarspan and Ausdeck who use genuine Colorbond roofing sheet on the top skin and bottom skin of the panelling. If you are looking at other products be sure to satisfy yourself that the metal sheeting is Colorbond and not a cheaper imported substitute.
