need Patio cover help

Hello friend,
I want to make patio cover. Some one suggest me to go in big retail store. But I think it may be much costlier for me.
any affordable suggestion please...

It would be useful to know how big a cover. Also, do you want it to keep off precipitation or just to provide shade? The first requires a "real" roof. For the second, an open lattice pergola will work very well.

If you're doing a roofed cover, will metal be OK or do you need to match shingles on the house?

Truth is, a visit to your local home center will allow sitting down with someone who will ask many of these same questions and then they can assist you with a design and a materials list on the spot. I don't understand why you think that kind of help will be too expensive.
