In addition to our wrought iron, masonry, and landscaping services, our experts are also experienced at installing patio covers. These covers provide many benefits to your yard and can be custom made to match the aesthetics of your home. Let’s check out how a patio cover can benefit you.
As a Las Vegas based company, we have grown accustomed to just how hot our summers get here. Did you know that a patio cover can actually help reduce the temperatures both on your patio itself and inside your home? The sun shining into your large sliding door does a lot to hear things up. When a patio cover is put into place, it cuts down on the direct sunlight shining down onto your paved porch and into your house. This not only reduces the heat levels, but can also help to lower your utility bills since your air conditioner will no longer need to work as hard to cool things back down.
Preventing Solar Damage
Anyone who has left anything in the sun for too long knows that the ultraviolet rays can have an affect on the color of that item. Sun can fade fabrics and other materials quite easily, and can have harsh effects on our skin as well. A patio cover reduces direct sun exposure and can not only protect our skin, but also our belongings. This can even save you money in the long run from not having to replace items as often.
Patios are made to be enjoyed. We wouldn’t invest in patios if we did not intend on going outdoors to use them, right? Sometimes, however, the weather becomes less than ideal for spending time outdoors. Whether it is too hot, or it’s raining, or anything else, a patio without the cover is left exposed to elements. Adding a cover to your patio makes any inclement weather easier to bear, and even possible to sit outside while remaining protected. This allows you to fully enjoy the investment that you made year round.
In addition to all of the benefits listed above, patio covers also add to the aesthetic appeal of your home. You can get one that is custom designed for your space and created to match the style that you like. This can add that perfect extra touch to an already gorgeous backyard, or it can be the first big step in a major lawn renovation. Regardless of where you are at in your landscaping journey, it is always a good time to add a patio cover.
Last, but certainly not least, a quality patio cover can actually add to the value of your home. Whether you are planning to sell in the next couple years, or further down the road, a patio cover is a timeless addition to your house, and you may actually be able to bump up your listing price because of it.
As you can see, there are many benefits to investing in a patio cover for your home. If you have decided that you want to take the next step and get a patio cover, contact our experts today!
