Northline Patios has all the patio, carport and associated products to make choosing your patio or carport a simple process.

There are no standard patios, as every patio installed is custom built to your specifications and requirements. However, by far, the most common styles are gable, flat (skillion) and dome roof patios. There are options to these such as hip ends on gables and hips going around corners for flat patios. Please see the gallery page for photo's of various types of patios. 

One of the core values at Northline Patios is providing you with the highest quality and strongest patio you can buy. All patios, regardless of size or style are built to the highest standards, using only high quality materials and include, as standard, features such as:

  • All patios and carports are fully engineer certified and just as importantly, are actually built to those specifications. In many cases, they exceed those specifications.
  • All steel is Australian Bluescope steel and all tubing is a minimum of 76x38x1.6mm thick RHS (we don't use 1.2mm steel).
  • All trusses ("A-frames" in gable patios) and/or doglegs are fully welded and powder-coated in your choice of Colorbond colours.
  • Standard posts for gable and dome patios are 90x90x2mm SHS, but can be bigger upon request.
  • Standard posts for flat patios are 76x38x1.6mm RHS, but can be bigger upon request.
  • All patios, regardless of style, are built with a full frame, including, in many cases, more than the recommended number of purlins (roof sheet supports) in the frame to ensure roof sheets are not over spanned.

    Span tables for roof decking are based on wind pressures in different regions and don't really reflect real world use. Whilst roof sheets may "technically" be able to span certain distances, these are unrealistic should anyone ever need to stand on the patio roof. All our patios are built with enough purlins to allow a person enough support to stand on the roof without buckling roof sheets.

    Please note:We don't use "Long Span" types of decking for the reason above. Also, you will find it difficult to attach lighting to patios built with long span sheeting, as there are no purlins in the frame to which you can attach the lights.
  • Steel roof sheeting is always genuine Australian Colorbond decking in double sided powder coating (unless you specifically request single sided colour), in your choice of either Corrugated or Trimdeck profiles.
  • Only quality heat relective skylights are used, in your choice of polycarbonate or fibreglass material. These will allow light into the covered area, but importantly, will still provide shade and help reduce heat.
  • Gable patios come with one infill standard at the house, or weather end of the patio.
  • No matter what type of patio is being installed, a fascia plate, usually 76x38x1.6 RHS, is attached to your house fascia and this is bolted up to your house rafters. The patio is then built off the fascia plate, not your house fascia.
  • All gutters are full size box gutters.
  • For gable patios, a separate gutter for the patio is always attached to the house side of the gable and returned to the open side of the patio. This ensures no water from the patio goes into your house gutters, thus eliminating the risk of the patio causing your house gutters to overflow.
  •  All brackets and fixings are galvanised or the equivalent Alzin class coating.
Many of the features listed above, that are included in all Northline Patios, are the types things that many other patio companies don't want to talk to you about, as excluding some of these features are ways of cutting corners.


We supply and install high quality Ziptrak patio blinds. These are, quite simply, the best quality patio blinds on the market. However, don't be fooled by cheap imitations. There is only one genuine Ziptrak blind company, even though a lot of installers call their products by the same name.

Genuine Ziptrak patio blinds are so easy to use, you will actually use them, unlike other types of blinds, with ropes, pullies or cranks, that usually end up being left either permanently open or closed.

Ziptrak patio blinds help keep areas cool in summer and warm in winter, so you can enjoy your outdoor lifestyle no matter what the season. The patented tracking system on both sides of the blind allow the fabric to glide smoothly and easily and you can stop them anywhere you want!

Here are some of the unique features that set Ziptrak patio blinds apart from the rest:
  • Fully sprung blind system. They use a coil spring, similar to those used to operate roller doors, but on a smaller scale. The spring is completely hidden.
  • Blind is self holding.
  • Works like a blind you might have inside your house. Simply raise or lower to the position you want, and that's it. They really are that easy to use.
  • Uses a patented track system which allows the blinds to effortlessly glide up and down.
  • The tracks are powder-coated so they match your existing décor. 
  • No Ropes or pullies.
  • No crank handles.
  • No tie down straps or buckles.
  • No zips or heavy weights in the bottom of the blind. 
  • Unique centre locking mechanism allows blinds to be securely locked in the down position, protecting you from the wind, rain and UV.
  • This same centre locking mechanism allows you to easily unlock the blinds by simply lifting the handle.
  • The patented track system locks the blind into the special tracks, meaning there are no gaps on the sides and the blinds don't flap in the wind. 
  • Choose from a wide selection of fabrics, so you're assured of finding the right fabric to suit your existing décor, whilst at the same time, providing protection from the sun, wind and rain.
