26 Mar Year-Round Shelter for Year-Round Fun
We’re happy to take any sunshine we can get in the Pacific Northwest, but sometimes the full heat and glare of the summer sun can be too much of a good thing, even for us. Whether it’s a day-long barbecue with friends and neighbors or a quiet evening out on the patio with the rest of the family, outdoor patio covers create the ideal setting for any outdoor activity. In fact, outdoor patio covers do more work for homes in the Pacific Northwest than they do for most others because—and this is perhaps the most important thing—they allow you to enjoy more time outdoors by providing a shelter from the rain in the non-summer seasons.
Why Get an Outdoor Patio Cover?
Maybe in the past you’ve dismissed patio covers as some kind of frivolous luxury whose value to a home is nothing more than aesthetic. While we don’t wish to downplay how dramatically they improve a home’s curb appeal, many people don’t realize how functionally important patio covers can be to the lifestyles of certain homeowners.
Do you have a beautiful yard you’ve worked hard to maintain? How about a hot tub or a stylish arrangement of not-cheap patio furniture? Although not many people like to spend a lot of time outside in the winter cold, typically the only thing preventing you from enjoying a hot tub session or a cookout with friends in the fall and spring is a little rain. With a reliable shelter, your patio area will feel like an extension of your home itself and create opportunities for introducing party-friendly upgrades you’d normally be uneasy about having outside, such as a home speaker system.
Because of the myriad ways outdoor patio covers introduce new possibilities for entertaining guests and enjoying the seasons, as well as how great they’re sure to make your home building project, these distinctive additions raise your property value and gives everyone in your home the ideal outdoor hang-out spot no matter what the weather’s doing.
