Flyover patio roofs are used to create a shaded cool area with great airflow in your garden, perfect for when you’re entertaining guests or just enjoying your outdoor space. They are perfect for Brisbane’s hot weather, allowing you the sense of space you need from your garden, whilst providing protection from the heat, and the rain.

And here at CJ’s Carpentry Brisbane, not only do our team of expert carpenters have years of experience installing and maintaining flyover patio roofs, but we can help you with your design as well. Here are just a few reasons why you should install a flyover patio roof:

They Provide Great Airflow

As we all know, temperatures can reach some pretty epic figures in the Gold Coast area, and Brisbane summers can get very hot, very quickly. That’s exactly why an open space that provides shelter and great airflow is required if you’re to be 100% comfortable and safe.

Their unique design and shape means that not only do they provide space for warm air to escape on two or three sides: their shape and height allows hot air to rise and escape also. And the sloped roof means that if a storm breaks, there’s no need to run inside either.

What our clients are saying about us

A Cheap, Minimalist Extension

Extending a flyover roof over a deck or patio area creates an extra and useful living space, especially for the hottest month of the year. There are very few building projects you can undertake for the money which will open up as much potential living space as a flyover roof.

Flyover Roofs Are Stylish

If you are a fan of simple, minimalist design then a flyover patio roof might well float your boat. In fact, their simplicity appeals to many, and also means that they are easily matched to a huge range of building and architectural styles.

Properly executed, the roofline should be tailored to align perfectly with your existing one, allowing a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor space.

Great Space for Entertaining

For all the reasons above, a flyover roof can transform your space into a great area to socialise, so you can entertain family and friends all year round.

Need a hand with your flyover roof design?

If you’re not sure how best to fit a flyover on your property, one of our team will be glad to visit. We can assess the space and make suggestions to you relative to your requirements and your budget, of course.

Here’s a few things to that we will be able to help you with and factor into your design:


Flyover roofs are designed to extend over the top of an existing roof, and so act as a de facto extension of your home. Although the flyover roof can be self supporting, it is most common that it is attached to the existing roof by brackets.

Roofing Materials

The type of materials used for the roof itself can be generally lumped into two categories: insulated or single skin. The type you require will depend on a number of factors, including your taste, and our team will be happy to discuss this with you.

Posts and Beams

A practical and an aesthetic concern, posts and beams can make a huge difference to the appearance of your patio roof, and how well it matches with your home. We have many different options in stock, and our highly skilled carpenters will be able to create a look which melds seamlessly with the style of your home.

Flyover Carport Roof Extensions

Because of the many qualities of the flyover roof listed above, it can also be used to make an excellent carport. A simple carport can be installed to the side of your house with ease, and will not only keep your vehicle sheltered but also cool during the summer months.

At CJ’s Carpentry Brisbane, we have a team of dedicated carpenters who’ve installed flyovers all over Brisbane, with great results. If you have any questions about installing a flyover roof extension, we’d be happy to hear from you. So give us a call today.
