For many people, their patio is one of their favourite spots, a place to relax outside, listening to neighbourhood birds and enjoying a fresh breeze. But sometimes, the patio isn’t as enjoyable as it could be. Maybe the weather isn’t cooperative, or the sun is too intense. Perhaps you feel too exposed, particularly to neighbours looking out their upper-floor windows. Or it may be that something seems to be missing aesthetically.
Any of these factors can reduce your enjoyment of your patio and lead to it being used sporadically or even not at all, but there is a remedy. A patio cover can help address these issues and more. Here are some of the reasons why you should get a patio cover:
Adding a patio cover adds to the aesthetic appeal of your yard. Not only will this make it more enjoyable for you, but it will also make it more attractive to potential buyers should you decide to sell your home. Whether you choose to remain consistent with the existing design of your home or create a gazebo-like effect by using different materials and designs, you will find that your patio cover is a perfect final touch to the appearance of your patio.
There are times when you might want to sit in the sun and enjoy the heat, but other times, such as when you are entertaining or barbecuing, you might feel like you are being cooked yourself. Adding a top to your patio can lower the temperature several degrees, making it more pleasant for everyone. By adding a fan to the ceiling, you can cool things off even more.
More Living Space
By adding a roof, and then especially by fortifying and insulating it, you are adding new living space to your home that can potentially be used year-round. With so many people now working at home, this could evolve into a home office.
Once you have a cover, your kids might enjoy “camping out” in your yard. With the availability of portable mini projectors, you could even watch your movies or play video games outside. It could become the ideal place for sleepovers when you add the right touches for comfort.
Added Value for Your Home
As mentioned above, adding a cover to your patio can increase the value of your home considerably if you decide to sell it. Many potential buyers will be attracted to the possibilities the patio offers for relaxation, de-stressing, entertaining, and more.
The Great Outdoors
Of course, one of the best parts of having a beautifully covered deck is that it encourages you and your family to spend more time outside, enjoying the fresh air and the sights and sounds of the outdoors.
Your patio can be your refuge from the stresses of daily life, a place to unwind and relax. Make it all it can be with a patio cover that shelters, protects, and beautifies your outdoor space. Custom designed and built to the highest standards, this is an addition to your home to be enjoyed for years to come. Take a look at some of our completed projects.
