In the scorching climates of Queensland, flyover patios have gained immense popularity. These innovative structures are designed to float above your existing roof, offering numerous benefits that make them a desirable addition to any outdoor living area.
One of the primary advantages of flyover patios is their ability to provide extra height, allowing for a more spacious and open feel in your entertainment area. By elevating the roof above your patio, you can create an airy atmosphere that embraces the true essence of outdoor living. This increased height also enables the safe installation of patio ceiling accessories such as lighting and ceiling fans, allowing you to enjoy your patio comfortably day and night, throughout the year.
The significance of ventilation cannot be overlooked, especially during the sweltering summer months. Regular patios often suffer from inadequate air circulation, making it challenging to escape the intense heat. However, flyover patios solve this problem with their raised roofs, facilitating excellent ventilation. As hot air rises and escapes through the elevated design, cool breezes can be captured from multiple directions, ensuring a refreshingly cool ambiance in the hottest of summers through natural ventilation.
The construction of flyover patios involves the use of flyover brackets that securely penetrate the existing house roof and attach to the top plate of the house wall. This results in a visually appealing ‘stump post’ appearance that projects from the house roof. The maximum height of these brackets is typically 600mm, and their roof penetration is sealed with a flashing, ensuring the structure’s integrity and weatherproofing. Additionally, lifter brackets act as skylights, flooding the area with natural light during the day. Paired with strategically placed downlights, you can have a well-lit and inviting entertaining area throughout the day and evening.
