Does your patio get too much sunshine when it’s sunny or too much rain when a spring shower rolls in? You like to dine al fresco, but as soon as you sit down to eat wasps or bees want to join in the fun too. A patio enclosure is a great way to increase the usefulness of an outdoor living space that is underutilized for whatever reason.
Not a Major Renovation
A patio enclosure is a simple way to improve an outdoor living area without a major renovation. Since the patio is already attached to the house, an experienced contractor will be able to advise you on the best way to seamlessly add a patio enclosure to your home at a fraction of the cost of a major home renovation.
Regardless of the weather outside – sunshine, rain, or wind – a patio enclosure allows you to bring the outdoors in. It becomes a natural way to enjoy your backyard year-round. Even though enclosed, you can still feel like you are outside.
Protection from the Elements
When a patio is enclosed, you don’t have to worry about protecting the space, including the patio furniture from the elements. Keeping furniture cushions dry prevents mold and mildew. Shielding outdoor furniture from UV rays reduces fading. A patio enclose protects the “floor” from wind, rain, and snow, increasing its lifespan.
Keeps Bugs Out
If you’re always brainstorming on creative ways to sit in the backyard after dark without being bitten, patio closures are a great option. An enclosure that includes screens or retractable screen panels keeps out annoying bugs, insects, and other pests such as birds, squirrels, and bees searching for a good nesting place.
When neighbours can see into your backyard, it might make relaxing a bit challenging. An excellent way to add more privacy to your property is to enclose the patio. While blocking the view from prying eyes, it will make a pleasant evening even more enjoyable.
More Room to Entertain
Whether it’s a large group of friends, a Valentine’s dinner for two, or a family birthday party, an enclosed patio offers you more room to entertain. And you won’t have to consult a long-term weather forecast before planning your memorable event.
Adds Resale Value
A well-designed patio enclosure adds resale value to your home. Patio enclosures create an extra livable space that is attractive to potential homebuyers. Transforming a simple patio into a space that functions as an entertainment area, a home office, craft room, or an extra sleeping area makes a traditional patio enclosure with walls and windows a great return on investment (ROI).
