Traditional Patio Roof Building Techniques


Different patio roof styles


The SkyLift Roof Riser installs securely to the top plate of any bearing wall with ¼” x 3” Simpson Strong-tie SDS screws included with each unit.  Just cut an access hole (minimum 3-1/2” x 6”) through the roof decking directly over the bearing wall to install.  Then slide a standard pipe jack flashing over the support tube and then the pipe end flashing (included) over for a perfect seal.


Installing a Skylift Riser


Choose the Standard Duty Riser for lighter weight patio covers like a polycarbonite panel or the Heavy Duty Riser for gable style roofs or any heavier structure.  If you live on the coast, choose the Heavy Duty Hot Zinc Galvanized Riser to withstand the effects of salt air.


Saddles are available in 4x or 6x beam sizes.  Designed to support in excess of 3,800 lbs.  Will easily support 1,250 to 1,750 lbs that standard 2x4 top plate and wall studs at 16" on center will support between studs.


The Skylift Roof Riser has been tested for uplift and performed very well.  The test actually showed the roof acted like an airfoil on the back of a car rather than a wing.  Contact us to get a copy of the testing data.


For the strongest support post connection, set ground rated pressure treated posts into a 36" concrete hole or use one of the Perma-Column products for a superior structural solution.
