Most homes are built these days with at least a small concrete pad to serve as an outdoor living space. That area is well and good for placing your grill and some seating, but it might not be as useful as you would like. If you are driven indoors every time it rains, snows, or the sun is exceptionally hot, you should learn more about the benefits of patio covers.
Patio covers can provide just a roof over patios, or they can be screened in to also allow for pest-free enjoyment during the summer. It isn’t much fun getting bitten by mosquitos when trying to enjoy a grilled hot dog, hamburger, or steak. Whether you want this added protection or prefer the open feeling without screening, you’ll find that patio covers let you enjoy your patio more often.
Another benefit of patio covers is that they add value to your home. Down the road when you decide to sell your home, potential buyers will be more impressed when you’ve upgraded your patio. You could easily recoup most or even all of the cost of this improvement through a higher selling price than you would have achieved without it.
Patio covers do not have to be large to be helpful. In fact, you can have them cover only part of your patio. You can also go the other route and have them larger than your patio. There are no hard and fast rules other than the potential of needing to meet building code or HOA regulations.
