Outdoor Patio insulation
 
Our house have a 26 by 26 patio which continues to get so hot that even after the sun goes down ( Im in San Antonio ,Texas) it is better just to move the chairs outside to the pool deck than to be inside the patio...would insulation help this out?...I can feel the heat even at night emanating from the stucco
If insulation is an option...what would you recommend?...thanks

Without being able to see the porch with a picture and know how it was built not sure how we can tell you how to fix it.

Plant a tree or get an umbrella to get some shade there...you've got a sea of concrete that loves to absorb sun generated radiant heat...there isn't anywhere in that photo insulation would help...

Are there any ceiling fans in there?
Is there a ceiling or is it open?

Some flowing, outdoor, sailcloth or similar material drapery panels might give you some shade. I like a large ceiling fan or two. Plants, plants and more plants will provide some natural cooling. You do have a lot of concrete surface area if the pic still rings true?
