In that case you can lay porcelain or stone tiles over the top, to give an elegant finish to your patio.

It is usually some type of shade cloth fixed to a permanent frame of steel or aluminium. Retractable awnings can be swiftly stowed away, and are available in either powered or manually operated versions.
