Patio Enclosures

If you love the warm summer months, but hate the humidity, if you enjoy the outdoors, but every time you step outside your allergies kill you, if you yearn to dine outside, but the mosquitoes attack you every time, consider the ultimate solution - a patio enclosure.

With an enclosure, you can you enjoy the outdoors and improve the beauty and value of your home. Many people now choose to have patio enclosures installed over their patios.

When enclosing your patio, you must choose between a variety of styles and materials that will affect how your enclosed patio reacts in the elements. Some of the more popular options include: installing glass, installing screens, or framing in your patio like the rest of your home. There are several companies that sell a variety of patio enclosures, these enclosures can range from inexpensive to top dollar. It's a good idea to know ahead of time what you are going to use this space for and how much it will be used. Having this knowledge will help you determine what type of enclosure you will need, thus allowing you to figure and budget for the project.

One of the things you need to consider is if your patio is covered or not. If it's not, you will need to consider the extra expense of the roof that needs to be put on. A screen room can be installed without a roof but an awning will be used, this will be the least expensive way to go. Sunrooms and solariums can come in a kit or can be pieced together depending on the existing structure. If you fully enclose your patio and install windows you will want to consider different types of flooring as well. You might want to consider installing ceiling fans or heat and air vents that attach to your central air unit. How elaborate you want to go with this will depend on the climate you live in.

When considering a project like patio enclosures, a qualified patio contractor will be your best resource to help you in making the decisions you need regarding style, size, materials and your budget. Patio enclosures will add value to your home and are a very functional addition to your property.
