What are

The shelters are structures that take their cue from the shelters for public use that are located at the bus stops. They have also been used in the private sector because they are quite useful for sheltering people during rainy days.


The shelter is made in such a way as to guarantee a safe coverage of the space in which it is installed, and thanks to it you can be sure of being repaired when it rains. The door area is covered because it often happens there to stop for a few moments to look for the key and open the door. Think about how useful it can be when you are with the shopping bag, because placing it under the shelter prevents it from getting wet.


The shelter can be purchased in different sizes and materials. The size is usually proportional to the width of the door. The materials used for its construction are different: the shelter must also be able to integrate with the style of the house itself. In the case of a country villa, the shelter will be built with wrought iron and tiles. Obviously, only materials resistant to the action of rain and above all to thermal changes are used. When it comes to wrought iron, the customer has the possibility to customize the shape of the structure because the material is quite malleable and guarantees an excellent result and rather unusual shapes. The tile represents the roof par excellence that gives a very natural and rustic look and therefore becomes an element that blends perfectly into the surrounding countryside. If a shelter suitable for the modern style is to be created, aluminum and plexiglass will be used as reference materials. The latter material, being transparent, allows you to see the sky but still be repaired. The association of different materials to each other for the construction of a shelter is now a rather common use. Often the customer decides which materials to combine so that the shelter can have a pleasant appearance. It is fixed directly to the wall as it is a suspended structure. Its maintenance is essential when using materials such as wood, which in the long run inevitably requires small adjustments. If more modern materials are used, such as aluminum, the shelter will not need any maintenance. Those who have a large garden and want to have a sheltered space in a certain area, can always create a shelter under which to place a bench. This way you will also be sheltered from the sun.

The realization

As mentioned before, the construction of a canopy with a wrought iron structure can be done directly by a blacksmith. Only in this way does the customer have the opportunity to express the design he prefers to give to the shelter. When you choose the shelter in a store you have to be satisfied with the models available unless the company gives the possibility to customize it. On the other hand, those who want to build a shelter personally must have a minimum of skill and knowledge in this sector because since it is an external element it must be firmly fixed otherwise there is a risk that it could yield. Those who want to have a shelter on their door in a short time will certainly turn to the purchase at a shop, while those who want to try their hand at this small do-it-yourself job will buy the necessary material and start his work.


The costs related to a shelter depend above all on its size and on the material used. When you make it yourself, you contact the retailer for the necessary material to be purchased for the quantity needed to build the shelter. In the store, it is possible to compare the costs of different canopies made of different materials. The customer will naturally choose the one that comes closest to his personal taste, as well as at a cost considered quite accessible. The shelter is usually purchased when the door is installed, but this can also be mounted later. To understand the cost, you can always consult the Internet. Shelters are on sale on various sites and with a few clicks you can compare the different models presented and choose the one that seems to be most appropriate for your outdoor space. Making it yourself, it is preferable to first prepare a small project to get a clearer idea of ​​how that model will develop once it is built. Construction times vary according to the time dedicated to the construction of the shelter itself.
