For many homeowners in Greater Los Angeles, CA, having an outdoor space is at the top of their priority list. It is a way to extend the interior of your home outside and add valuable square footage. For those lucky enough to have a patio in their backyard, some reprieve from the sun is in order. There are many types of patio covers to choose from so where do you start? Future Vision Remodeling is here to talk about some of the different patio covers you have to choose from and what each of them has to offer.
Pergolas with Canopy
For homeowners that want to take a step into Italy when they step outside their back door, a pergola is a great option. These beautiful wooden structures are often home to beautiful foliage and vines that add organic beauty to the outdoor space and offer some shade as well. If you are looking for a cover that will protect you from extreme weather, including sunlight, this isn’t the cover for you. It does enhance the beauty of your backyard though!
Shade Sail Installation
Looking for a modern shade option? Shade sails offer a generous amount of shade and protection from extreme sunlight. Shade sails consist of fabric stretched across your patio and affixed to specially-engineered poles. The only problem homeowners might run into is water accumulation during storms, but with a little maintenance, this isn’t a deal breaker for many. This stream lined look is perfect for contemporary homes.
Gazebos offer beautiful shade in any yard. When choosing a gazebo, make sure you don’t purchase a premade gazebo. They are usually built using cheap materials and won’t be durable. Hiring the right contractor to construct your gazebo will give you durable results that enhance your backyard space.
The beauty of awnings is the option to retract them when you don’t want the shade, or you are experiencing extreme weather that could possible damage them. They can be manually or electrically controlled depending on your budget. They can also be made custom to fit your patio specifically.
Screened Porches or Sunrooms
If you are wanting an option that will be beneficial no matter what the weather looks like, you may want a screened porch or sunroom attached to the back of your house rather than a simple patio cover. If you live in an area such as Southern California with a strong mosquito and insect population, this option can offer reprieve from bug bites and other annoyances and illnesses that come with them. When you have a screened porch or sunrooms, you get to experience the outdoors without actually being in the outdoors. Some may say, it’s the best of both worlds.
