5 Ways Patio Covers Add A Touch of Beauty and A Good Deal of Value to Your Home


As winter takes its final bow, blossoms are bursting from trees, emerald blades are peeking through snow, and daffodils are raising their stately heads. There's no time more exhilarating to be outdoors than during spring's triumphant arrival. A feast for all senses, spring is an invitation into your own backyard. What better place to enjoy the show than from the tranquility of your own covered patio? Here are 5 reasons a patio cover will add both value and beauty to your home, not only this spring, but for years to come.

They Are Magical for Mingling

Have you ever cleaned your whole house and invited guests over, only to have them all cluster in the kitchen, or one particular room? The interior of a home invokes a certain degree of privacy, which lends an apprehension to just mill around. Want to get your guests to mingle? A patio cover is the perfect solution. In the open air, guests will feel freer, as covered patios are like rooms without walls. The best patio covers are insulated and laminated, protecting you from inclement weather and damaging rays, creating a true extension of your home and a space that's perfect for mingling. 

 They Are the Backdrop for Memories

 A family reunion, a child's graduation, an engagement or retirement... these are just a few of life's moments that we celebrate with loved ones. A patio cover provides that extra space we need when friends and family come calling, as well as a beautiful backdrop to capture those moments in photographs. Whether it's your morning coffee, or your 50th bash, a patio cover creates memorable traditions. As the world becomes increasingly busy, "staycations" and home entertaining are trends that are here to stay, and a patio cover allows you to celebrate in any weather.


They Offer Comfort and Protection

Without a patio cover, you are limited to what you can keep on your patio. Weather proof furniture and a covered grill are usually the extent of it. With a patio cover, the options are endless. Hang a TV for the big game, install an outdoor kitchen, display a cozy rug, and best of all, enjoy comfy furniture with pillows and cushions safely shielded from the elements. No more bringing your cushions indoors or replacing them year after year, a patio cover provides all of the comforts of home in the fresh open air.


They Add Value to Your Home

Patio covers are among the best investments you can make in your home. They are quick, cost effective, and multi-purpose. They are like bonus rooms without increased heating and air costs. And unlike interior remodels which are subject to personal taste, patio covers are an upgrade with universal appeal. A survey by the National Association of realtors found that patios are among the top 10 items home buyers look for, and over half of buyers would pay a premium for a house with a covered patio. Not only do you have the pleasure of enjoying your patio cover, but also the knowledge that it was money well spent. Patio covers also shield your patio and patio furniture from damage that results in costly repairs. 


They Create Serious Curb Appeal

Anyone who has gone house hunting knows, our first impression of a home's exterior carries a lot of weight. A house that lacks landscaping or outdoor living space simply won't measure up to the rest. Adding a patio cover makes your home more inviting and maximizes both your home and your yard.

Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola

Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.
There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use.
