All of our custom built patio covers come complete with your choice of ceiling type. Our most affordable option is the exposed rafter look – this is because we can build these without ceiling joists. This option looks fabulous with a gable style patio cover. We install 4″ x 8″ bead board sheets behind the rafters so the nails don’t show, paint everything with Sherwin Williams brand Super Paint, and for a great price you get a fabulous looking ceiling. Our standard cover comes with a flat ceiling. We cover the ceiling joists using James Hardie brand 4″ x 8″ sheets with trim. Add a ceiling fan with a light kit, a few recessed lights and this looks great painted. For those that want to upgrade and really make that ceiling pop, we recommend the D Select grade pine tongue and groove ceiling. Choose your stain color (two coats, hand applied) followed by a clear coat polyurethane sealer. Only one word can describe this : Wow!!
