Insulated Panels for Patio Covers


Smart-Lok Panel technology



  • Easy-to-install snap lock system (list of tools you may need)

  • Painted aluminum embossed finish - .024" laminated aluminum applied to top and bottom creates a durable dual layer system which resists scratches, corrosion and fading.

  • Other than the odd cleaning this is a no maintenance installation (how to keep your patio cover clean!)

  • Downspouts are usually included in your purchase

  • Roof panels are available in white, wheat, sand and eggshell

  • High density 1.5 lb structural expanded polystyrene (EPS) core prevents thermal transfer to the underside of the patio cover and strength to accommodate the snow and wind load requirements for your area.

Available Roof Colors

  • Snap Lock Line DrawingDon't hesitate to call us toll free with questions 1.844.404.0484

  • Optional 2"x3" extruded aluminum channel can be built into the roof panel to run electrical to and support a fan installation

  • The drop from house wall to the front of the unit is fixed at 1/4" per foot of projection

  • Factory painted extruded aluminum roof profiles (Lifetime Warranty )

  • Fascia gutters available white, clay or bronze

  • Extruded aluminum profiles add to the strength and durability of this high quality materials supplied patio cover

  • Posts with wall thicknesses of .078" / .125" gauge extruded aluminum available in white, ivory or dark bronze

  • As a materials supplied 'kit' the panels, extruded back-wall channel, side fascia & front gutters, posts & beams
    may need to be trimmed to finished size on site by customer



Fan beam option Tar Tape



Note: The front gutter illustrated here may look slightly different than what you receive. However the connection to the roof panels is the same and the side fascia will cap the front gutter in all cases.

As part of the roof system, we always supply a beam and post assembly to support your roof panels (top only systems available). This allows your entire patio cover to meet the local load requirements rather than the 'just' the panels. The finished product will add value to your home every single time! Like all other parts, the beam & posts assembly is all extruded aluminum, giving you virtually no maintenance requirements and all the hardware is supplied. Each system is engineered according to your local code requirements (snow loads). High quality, durable and maintenance free - - all at a price that will not break the bank and it comes with all the help you need from Home Porch & Patio Kits Inc.

Familiarize yourself with our terminologies!





You will need to know your local (city / municipal building department) live load requirements (lb./sq.ft.) and wind speed requirements (mph.)

Your city building department is where building permits are issued from. You may or may not need an actual permit for your installation. This responsibility rests with the homeowner. It is our strong recommendation that you acquire your permit prior to purchase. We can help with that! However, panel thickness, beam placements, beam size, distance between posts out front... all are a function of the load (snow & wind) that your cover will be subject to. Though you may  not require a permit, we ask that you acquire the load requirements for your area, so that we can supply you with the 'correct' thickness and configuration of materials!
