Do-It-Yourself Patio Covers

Kits You Install Yourself

Awnings, carport covers and patio covers really can be done by the do-it-yourselfer.  If you are handy with tools, or have friends that are, these kits can be installed without any prior experience.  Follow the instructions closely and refer to some of the step-by-step photo pages on this site for additional help.
