There are certain trivial things to remember when installing patio cover kits. The direction of wind and sun should be noted, and the pergola built accordingly. It can either be close to the house or a little away to be more hassle free. While growing climbers of a pergola, choose a variety that does not attract bees or other pesky insects. Likewise, roses with thorns should be avoided. Some states require prior permission from authorities and this should be looked into and taken care of because rules vary form place to place.
