The only issue with having a deck is when you’re unable to enjoy it due to weather. Here are 3 covered deck ideas to consider adding so that you can enjoy your deck whenever you want!
We’ve all seen the SunSetter retractable awning commercials at one point and were secretly jealous. Awnings provide protection on a hot or rainy day and are even linked to reducing your energy bill cost. One downfall to awnings is that they can be pretty pricey. HomeAdvisor estimates that installing an awning will cost you an average of $2,750.
A pavilion is a great option if you would like to have both a covered and uncovered portion on your deck. They are perfect for putting directly above your outdoor seating, as they are typically small additions unless you have a large one built.

|Size (in feet)||Average Cost|
|8×10||$1,000 – $4,000|
|10×12||$2,000 – $6,000|
|10×15||$3,500 – $7,000|
|10×20||$5,000 – $9,500|
|14×20||$6,000 – $11,000|
|30×50||$15,000 – $25,000|
