      8” wide interlocking flush pan that provides an attractive tongue and groove paneled ceiling appearance, is available in 3 thicknesses to meet the load requirements in even the harshest environments.

    • Support Beam:

      3” x 8”, of roll formed embossed wood grain can be set up to 24” from front of cover.

    • Support Posts:

      3” square heavy walled extruded aluminum and mount under beam.

    • Aluminum Fascia:

      The 5” extruded aluminum fascia has a large built in gutter and is engineered for strength.

    • Easy To Install:

      Heavy duty, extruded aluminum, 2 piece mounting rail requires only 1 ½” of mounting space on the wall.  Two piece system creates a hinge to slope cover away from the building for proper drainage.  Plus allows the cover to move independently of the wall, minimizing possible damage from frost and freeze upheaval.

    • Options:

      Options include 2 x 6 side post plates to add a more decorative look to the 3” support posts and downspout kits for directional drainage at ground level.

Americana Teton Patio Cover Installation

  • Teton Patio Assembly Instructions

    Recommended Tools:
    -Level, Pliers
    -3/8" Electric Drill
    -Carpenters Square
    -Tape Measure
    -Metal Hack Saw
    -Silicone Caulking
    -Screw Drivers (Regular & Phillips)

    Before You Begin:
    1. Please read all instructions carefully. Check the Bill of Materials for any missing parts, and
    gather all necessary tools. The paint finish can be scratched so place materials on tarp or
    cardboard to prevent scratching.
    2. Note that this patio cover kit is not designed to carry additional loads such as hanging plants,
    swings, people, trellis's, or other objects.

  • Step 1.1-2

    Drill 1/4" dia. holes begining 2" from either end at 12" to 16" on center in awning rail as shown (see Fig. 1-1). Slide awning rail onto wall Channel and apply a generous bead of silicone to backside of awning rail (see Fig 1-2).

    Note: Center to center dimension of 1/4" holes is determined by location of wall studs or other structural member that the awning must be anchored to. Do Not attach awning to sheeting, siding, flashing, or any other non-structural surface.

  • Step 1.3

    Mark a level line a minimum of 5 1/2" above out-swinging door. Align holes in awning rail with level line, and attach awning rail / mounting channel assy. to existing structure with 1 1/2" lag screws (see Fig. 1-3).

  • Step 1.4

    If mounting channel is in two sections a splice plate is required (see Fig. 1-4). Be sure to caulk wall mounting channel at splice and remove excess silicone after attaching.

    NOTE: If attaching patio cover to concrete or masonry unit a masonry drill, bit, and anchors are required.

  • Step 2.1

    Cut post to proper length, we recommend the front height of cover be 1/2" per foot of projection lower than mounting height. (EX: With a 8'-0" projection the front height should be 4" lower than mounting height. see Fig 2-1) Secure post bracket to header using 4 - #14 x 3/4" Tek Screws. We recommend spacing post No More Than 10'-0" apart. Attach posts to post brackets with 2 - #8 x 3/4" Tek screws per side (see Fig. 2-2) and stand the header / post assy. upright.

    Note: Do Not mount post to lower brackets or surface, yet. See Step 6.

  • Step 2.2

    If the Gutter is in two sections insert the gutter splice, caulk, and fasten with #8 x 3/4" Tek Screws as shown (see Fig 2-3).

  • Step 2.3

    The header may also be in two pieces. If so, using header splice & 16 - #8 x 3/4" Tek Screw splice the header as shown.

    Note: Be sure to place a post under splice.

  • Step 3.1

    Attach the bent end of the roof panels to the wall channel using 2 - #8 - 32 x 1/2" Bolt w/ nut & washer. Header will be 2" shorter than the width of awning. To properly center header measure 1" inward from outside edge of roof panel and locate end of header. After roof panel is secure apply silicone to four faces of the styrofoam flashing plug & fit it between mounting channel and roof panel (see Fig 3-1).

    Note: For awnings with 12' projection or less we recommend locating the header 12" behind face of gutter and awnings with a projection greater than 12' we recommend a 24" set back.

  • Step 3.2

    Attach squared end of roof panel to header using 2 - #14 x 3/4" Tek Screw w/ washer per panel as shown (see Fig 3-2).

  • Step 3.3

    Once there are two roof panels attached, one at each end, square the cover. Slide or snap remaining roof panels into place. When you reach the last two panels, remove the end panel installed to square the unit and install the 2nd from last panel before reinstalling end panel.

  • Step 3.4

    Square cover again and tighten all screws. Attach the gutter to the square end of the roof panels using 3 - #8 x 3/4" Tek Screws per panel as shown. Square cover again and tighten all screws.

  • Step 4.1

    Attach one end of projection fascia to the wall channel with 2-#8 x 3/4" screws from the top of fascia. If your patio cover has a projection greater than 8'-0" we recommend securing the center of the fascia to the roofing panel as shown (see Fig.4-1).

  • Step 4.2

    Attach the either end of projection fascia to the gutter by caulking & installing corner caps with #8 x 3/4" screws (see Fig. 4-2).

  • Step 5

    Determine where you want the water to run from unit. Mark and drill several small holes in bottom of gutter forming a pattern no bigger than 2" x 3". With a saw remove the material between holes to create one larger hole. Apply silicone to flange of scupper & attach to gutter with 2 - #8 x 3/4" Tek Screws covering large hole (see Fig. 5-1).

  • Step 6

    Attach bottom post bracket to deck or slab directly beneath the header-to-post connection using 4 - 1 1/2" screws or concrete anchors for each bracket. Secure posts to post brackets using 4 - #14 x 3/4" Tek Screws w/ washers (see Fig. 6-2).

    NOTE: Be sure to square post brackets with building and post spacing.
