Eureka! A Patio Roof That Doesn’t Look Like One

We build LOTS of  solid roof lanai’s here in Southwest Florida.  We call them as screen rooms.  We generally use a 3″ insulated composite roof, which is a step above  the economical grade rollform roof (thin sheet metal).  Occasionally though we get requests for something that doesn’t look like a ‘basic’ add on rood.  Something that looks a little more elaborate and aesthetically pleasing.  Other times, traditional aluminum roofs are not allowed by the home owners association.  We now have an option; the Romano Roof & Patio.

The Romano Patio uses aluminum with a unique wood-grain finish to create a unique an awesome look that creates the perfect and environment for any occasion.  The wood-grain finish gives the appearance of wood with the with the resilience of aluminum.  Rafters and beam ends are given 4 cut options so the best can be chosen to match your home or style.  The roof can be solid for rain protection or pergola style for shade… or a combo of the two.  The design options are endless.  The Romano is considered a permitted structure, engineered to hurricane code, and requires footings (we do not sell or ship Romano Kits).

When it comes to screen, that is no problem either.  The Romano can host retractable screens which roll up or down as needed, allowing for free flowing air or bug protection as you wish.  Check out the Romano’s below:

Corey began working on screen enclosures as a teenager in 2004 after hurricane Charley devastated his home town of Punta Gorda. 7 years later, after holding positions from foreman, to sales, to project manager, while attending college at Florida Gulf Coast University, Corey and childhood friend Thomas Davis founded Gulf Coast Aluminum in 2011. With a focus on delivering an unparrelled level of service, the company has grown by leaps and bounds under their leadership.
