Norwalk – A New Kind of Patio Cover from Duralum

Many homeowners dream of extending their home to create more living space, but not all of them want to go through the process of building an ADU (accessory dwelling unit). That was the case for a Norwalk homeowner who had a large backyard and wanted to extend their home without constructing a separate living unit. Family Home Improvements was happy to help and proposed a room extension and indoor patio cover instead.
One of the key differences between an ADU and a room extension is that an ADU requires electrical and plumbing, whereas a room extension is simply an addition to the existing home, without any plumbing required. This made the process more straightforward, though still a bit of a long process, but affordable for the homeowner.
For this particular project, we used patio cover products from Duralum, a company that has been providing high-quality patio cover products for homes of all sizes since 1946. Duralum’s products are known for their durability and beauty, which made them an ideal choice for this project.
Duralum’s patio cover products are designed to make a difference in homeowners’ lives by providing durable and beautiful outdoor living spaces. With over 70 years of experience in the industry, Duralum has perfected their craft and is known for their high-quality materials and attention to detail.
Their patio covers come in a variety of styles and colors, allowing homeowners to customize their outdoor living space to their liking. From solid covers that provide complete shade and protection from the elements to lattice covers that allow some sunlight to filter through, Duralum has a product to fit every homeowner’s needs.
One of the main benefits of a Duralum patio cover is that it allows homeowners to enjoy their outdoor living space year-round. Whether it’s raining or the sun is shining, a patio cover provides a comfortable space for relaxing and entertaining guests. This not only enhances the homeowner’s quality of life but also increases the value of their home.
Duralum’s patio covers are also designed to be low maintenance and long-lasting. They are made from high-quality materials that can withstand the elements, and they require little upkeep. This means homeowners can spend more time enjoying their outdoor living space and less time worrying about maintenance and repairs.
The end result was a stunning room extension/indoor patio cover that the family can use to extend their home, add storage, watch TV, and spend more time with their family. The patio cover created a comfortable outdoor space, allowing the family to enjoy the outdoors while still being protected from the elements.
At Family Home Improvements, we take great pride in helping homeowners create their dream home. Whether it’s a small project or a large one like this, we are committed to delivering high-quality workmanship and customer satisfaction. We believe that a home should be a sanctuary, a place where families can relax and enjoy their time together. We’re glad to have been a part of making this happen for this Norwalk family.
A room extension/indoor patio cover can be a great way to add living space to your home without the expense and hassle of building an ADU. With the right products and expertise, it can be a long but affordable process that can transform your home and enhance your family’s quality of life.

About Us

A Five-Star Company


These guys are awesome. They did a coating on my house called “Texcote”. I love it. My house has never looked better. The crew was great. They were Clean on time and very nice, and after they finished, Renzo himself came back to do an inspection and check to see if I was happy. Not many companies do that. I thought that was great. Definitely will recommend them, and I will use them from now on for all my home improvement needs.
