Gable Patios

1 March 2021


Looking for a patio to complement your home and lifestyle? Gable patios are among the easiest and most stylish ways to do that. So, if you want a patio design that’s affordable, versatile, and adds value to your home, this choice could be your best option.

Let's take a look at its benefits so you can decide if it's the best choice for you...

Benefits of gable patios

Better lighting and ventilation

Compared to other roofing styles, a gable patio allows more light and air into your outdoor entertaining area. The additional headroom under the patio allows air and heat to freely flow in and out of the structure, resulting in better ventilation. Even when the weather is blistering hot, you can enjoy the gentle cool breeze in your outdoor living space while keeping out of the harsh UV rays.

Visually appealing

If you want a patio that looks attractive, then the gable roof patio would be an excellent choice for you. Unlike other patio designs, gable roof patios are more stylish and add more flair to your outdoor entertaining space. The two sloping sides of this patio design make gable patios stand out, offering a sense of charm and warmth to your property.


Whether you’re installing a gable patio for your backyard or front yard, you have all the freedom to install this structure anywhere that suits your needs. This patio accommodates a wide range of designs so you can install it where it best suits your property – you local Fair Dinkum expert can help you with the ideal positioning for you. You also have the option of tying its colour into your existing structure – or making it stand out with complementary colours!

Economical with space

One major advantage of installing a gable patio is that you can squeeze it into narrow spaces. That is why it is an ideal choice if you have limited space on your property. Given its angled roof, you can easily adjust its size so it could fit into your limited space. That also explains why in built up areas where homes are so close together and space is at a premium, gable patios are a favourite of homeowners.

Reduces heat

Because of its shape, a gable roof patio deals with hot, Australian summers much better than a flat roof. The sloping sides of its roof allows the sun to strike it more indirectly, so the patio does not heat up fast.

Water-carrying performance

Gable patio roofs are great to help water efficiently run off your roof. The angled design gives water a clear channel to run off, and with just a bit of thought put into the design, you can even use this as part of your home’s overall rainwater solution, and cleverly divert water, or capture it for use.
