aluminum patio cover bowed and pulled away from house!

kgal_2008April 24, 2010

We had a aluminum pation cover installed over 10 years ago. It apparently is too flat and always did leak slightly. This winter with the heavy snow it actually bowed in the middle and pull away from the brick. My Hubby has propped it up and is in the process of getting estimates for repair. Has anyone else had a similar problem and how did you solve it. A new cover is possible but would be a stretch for us at this point. Would welcome any and all advice.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Thecover is inadequate for the region you live in. If you have the ability to reinforce it, do it. If not, replace it with one that does.
