An insulated patio is an outdoor living space that features a roof made with Structural Insulated Panels. These panels, made with a lightweight insulating Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) and steel layers, not only provide excellent temperature control and weather protection, but also contribute to noise reduction and aesthetic appeal.
An insulated patio differs from a single skin patio in its roofing construction. While a single skin patio uses a single layer of roofing material, an insulated patio utilizes structural insulated panel roofing. This type of roofing features expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation sandwiched between two layers of sheet metal. The inclusion of EPS insulation enhances thermal efficiency, providing better temperature control and energy efficiency compared to a single skin patio. This insulation design also offers improved sound insulation and helps prevent condensation buildup, resulting in a more comfortable and versatile outdoor living space.
Insulated patios offer several benefits such as better temperature control, noise reduction during heavy rain, less condensation build-up, fire resistance, and a clean, aesthetic look. The insulation can help keep the patio cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
While insulated patios can have a higher upfront cost than single skin patios due to the added insulation and materials used, they can provide energy cost savings in the long run due to their superior temperature control.
