A patio cover is a terrific way to add value to your home and enjoy the outdoors at the same time!

Isn’t it disappointing, stepping out onto your patio to relax and enjoy when you suddenly realize everything you touch is scorching hot! Far too hot to actually enjoy. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to enjoy your patio more often?
Maybe it’s time for a Patio Cover.


It seems few homeowners actually recognize the potential their backyard patio has. The fact is that old patio can easily be transformed into one of the highest return home-improvement investments on the market today.

The best news is that you’ll not only improve the value of your home overall, but you end up with a new,
multi-seasonal area to relax in and enjoy your home’s outdoor areas, as well.

There are many names out there for PatioRooms. Patio, sunroom, conservatory, patio enclosure, and solarium, are of course a few of the terms used by home builders to refer to a home addition that encloses your patio.
What ever you want to call it.. We can build it!

“Smart” Shading Systems

HomeStar is Proud to your local authorized dealer of
Solara Adjustable Patio Covers – The “Smart” Shading System –
Both a Patio Cover and a Pergola at the Same Time!



Solara’s smart patio cover system allows you to control the amount of sunlight or shade you want. The system can also be used for the garden, or as a gazebo for a hot tub or spa. This way you can enjoy the combination of the magnificent design, with the convenience of an adjustable cover.


Solara is a manufacturer of a unique patio cover. Patio covers are exposed to different weather conditions, such as direct sunlight, rain, and humidity.

Because Solara patio covers are made entirely out of aluminum, including the support systems, they are superior to wood, iron, steel, and metal covers. They will never rust, are not susceptible to termites, plus you will never have to paint them. Occasional cleaning with soapy water is all that is needed.

Another advantage that Solara offers on other products is the option to control the patio cover roof. When it’s raining, you can close it, keeping your outdoor patio furniture, spa or hot tub covered. When a warm winter sun comes out, you can open the top louvers using a remote control and let in up to 98% direct sunlight, exactly where you want it to reach. And, of course, when the summer sun is too strong, you can choose to let in as little light as you would like through the louvers, up to 100% shade while maintaining maximal ventilation. You can order a 3D layout of your patio cover of choice and you can also order a custom made patio cover, meeting your specific requirements with no obligations.

The Smart Shading system, by Solara, doubles as a roof and patio cover. Made entirely of aluminum, the louvers tilt open to a 130-degree angle and close to a 0-degree angle. The roof can also be divided into two separately controlled sections. The system may be installed on pre-existing frames or can be custom designed to a homeowner’s specific needs. A variety of colors are available.
