I initially engaged Abel to install a new back patio, but after being so impressed with their service, I had them install a carport & front veranda. From the lovely ladies in the office to the installers & everyone I dealt with in between, these guys go out of their way to ensure the customer is satisfied, & the build is finished to a quality standard. I highly recommend Abel, & if I had any more roof space to attach something else I would definitely get Abel in to do the job. Cheers Abel team.

Abel Patios are a delight to deal with. They are highly professional and reasonably priced, consulting you on your project every step of the way and always responding promptly when contacted. They were recommended to me by a trusted friend, and I highly recommend them to anyone seeking quality workmanship from a professional company with integrity.

Abel Patios have just built a new carport at my place and, given their prompt, friendly efficient service, I’d thoroughly recommend them. From the first contact with their clear-speaking informative receptionist to the salesman and the two beauties who erected the frame + the two roofers as well as the chaps who checked progress, they were wonderful! Please note, Abel got the job after I’d spoken with 3 other companies who gave me the impression that they were overworked and worn out, which sapped my confidence in their ability to build a carport to my satisfaction. All communication with Abel was the very opposite, certainly made me feel like a valued customer right the way down the line. Excellent mob and excellent job!

Just wanted to thank Abel Patios for the tremendous work your team did on the louvre patio. It looks like new and beyond my expectation. Also, the consideration your team extended to myself in work ethic and in cleaning up. Much appreciation and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking to install a patio.

I was extremely impressed with Able Patios from the first time I contacted them for a quote. The salesman was on time, was well presented and knowledgeable about the job and what was required. The guys who came to remove the roof and replace it were very professional and experienced. Nothing was too much trouble and the quality of the work was exceptional. Lyndon O’Keefe the owner was on site regularly, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Able Patio’s. I’m very pleased with the outcome and experience.

They made the process so easy, from Kim who did the initial quote, to the guys who did the fitting and even the company owner Lyndon checking into ensure we were happy. Excellent service. Cant recommend them highly enough. It was all so straightforward.

A very professionally run company, the whole experience was hassle free from point of referral to project completion. Excellent communication from Lyndon and his staff.

Protection from the Elements

A flat roof patio provides essential shade during Perth’s scorching summers, creating a comfortable and enjoyable outdoor space. The shade cools the flooring, seating, and other areas of your backyard, making them much more comfortable during hot weather. Additionally, patios offer protection during the winter months, ensuring your patio space remains usable and inviting year-round. By shielding your outdoor area from harsh weather conditions, a patio helps maintain the longevity and condition of your outdoor furnishings and installations.

Adding Value to Your Home

Investing in a patio is a cost-effective way to enhance your property’s value. These patios are among the most affordable designs, yet they offer significant benefits that improve your home’s functionality and aesthetics. A well-designed patio adds an attractive, modern touch to your property, making it more appealing to potential buyers. Furthermore, the additional outdoor living space it provides can be a major selling point, giving your home a competitive edge in the real estate market.

Ease of Maintenance

Flat roofs are accessible and easy to maintain. Their simple design reduces the hassle of cleaning and upkeep, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space without the burden of extensive maintenance. With fewer nooks and crannies compared to more complex roofing designs, flat roofs are straightforward to clean, typically requiring just a broom or a hose. This ease of maintenance ensures that your patio remains in top condition with minimal effort, giving you more time to relax and enjoy your outdoor space.
