About The Patio Cover Guys

We started this company to make a difference in the way we enjoy our lives.

We are Outdoors people and when we relax, we like to be…well, Outdoors. That’s how we ended up here. To make a long story short, we tried other Patio Covers, Patio Awnings and all kinds of Deck Covers, but none of them worked well and most were poorly made.

We decided to fix that with our own Design and Manufacturing process. We spent 2 years with a group of Mechanical Engineers and one of the Premier Aluminum Extrusion Manufacturers in the United States designing and developing the only 100% Extruded Aluminium Louvered Roof Patio Cover in the world!

  • Professional Grade Quality
  • AMERICAN Designed and AMERICAN Manufactured for Americans

It started as one Deck Cover and one Louvered Roof at a time but we knew the quality of our Louvered Roofs could not be kept quiet. Today we are proud to say we offer the finest Louvered Roof Patio Cover Systems/Custom Deck and Patio Covers in the market.

Meet the Patio Cover Management Team


Paul knows everybody, no matter where you go. Seriously, it is like some type of magic trick. He also knows how to get things done. He is the only person we know who can talk to you like you have known him forever…and you believe him! His zest for life is contagious.He is very detail oriented and will be working with the National Master Dealer Network on a daily basis.


Rick is like an encyclopedia. He is the MacGyver of the industry. It would be intimidating if it weren’t for his naturally friendly demeanor…and yes he will take out the bad guys with a paperclip, a magnet and a piece of paper.

Rick works with the National Master Dealer Network on everything from marketing and database management to installation training.


Rob heads our installation and training team. He is an easy going, laid back guy who always seems to have a smile on his face. He also just so happens to be an installation expert! The kind of guy you go to first when you have a project request you haven’t tried before. We say, “Rob, is that something that can be done?”. A few moments later you’ll hear a soft…“Yyyyyuuup”, followed by a complete explanation that always begins with “all you have to do is…”!


Tal is our tech/web/communication dude. He creates and manages our websites, our network and our computer systems. He talks about things that glaze our eyes over and make us want to yawn but we’ve seen the things that he can do, so we trust him to do it. As a reward, (he calls it torture) we hide his laptop every few weekends.

In all seriousness, you will love working with us. We know how to get things done and are all relentless perfectionists. We work hard and love it! Most importantly though, we like to have fun, which to us…this is fun! Find out for yourself ! Get to know us, everybody’s welcome in our family…you’re sure going to be treated like it!

Lastly, we would like to also thank everyone that we work with and are happy to tell you that everyone involved in our organization will eventually have a space on this site. We couldn’t do this without all of their hard work. Thank You Everyone!
