When I think of patio covers, I think of a small patch of shade that will be used a few times each summer. Solara’s patio covers do so much more than that, though. The biggest improvement is that you can open and close this cover much like window blinds. Each of the louvers can be angled (via remote control) anywhere from 130 degrees to completely shut at 0 degrees. It is also divided into two sections. While one section is open for grilling, the other can be closed for sitting. Solara’s patio covers are also made of recycled aluminum, making them easy to maintain.
