5 Reasons to Install a Solid Patio Cover for Your Outdoor Space
When you think of your backyard, what comes to mind? Do your memories wander to all the sunburns or when you got soaked from rain? Maybe you secretly think it’s a waste of space that takes way too much effort to maintain than its worth? If you share this feeling, we challenge you to picture instead an area where you can relax, hang out with friends, and enjoy the passing seasons of the great outdoors with ease. How can you get that? With a solid patio cover! Today, we are sharing with you five reasons to install a solid patio cover for your outdoor space to inform and inspire you to create a backyard you will love all year long.
#1: Protect Your Skin from UV Rays
The kiss of sunshine on our skin is a pleasant feeling after the long winter months; who doesn’t love some Vitamin D? Unfortunately, too much sun exposure is harmful to our health, especially our skin, so it is critical to be aware of our levels of sun exposure.
With a patio cover installation, you don’t have to hide yourself and your family indoors to keep from getting burned. Our high-quality and affordable solid patio covers are designed to shelter you, your family, and your guests from the sun’s rays so you can enjoy outdoor picnics, barbecues, and parties – even on the sunniest days the Tri-Cities, Yakima, and Walla Walla have to offer.
While the bright sun of summer days is something to look forward to, Eastern Washington heat can get a bit toasty. Rather than being stuck in the air-conditioned indoors, a backyard patio cover can provide just the right amount of cool shade you need to enjoy being outside without melting into a puddle.
Plus, it doesn’t just provide shade. Solid patio covers are functional all year long! You can utilize them to extend your living space in the spring, fall, and even winter by providing complete protection from the sun, rain, wind, and snow. So, whether you want to sip a cocktail in the shade while enjoying a warm breeze or be protected by pelting rain while barbecuing in December, a patio cover literally has got you covered.
#3: Socialize in an Outdoor Room
Are you one to host dinner double dates, outdoor barbecues, kid’s birthdays, pool parties, and other events that result in a lot of people tracking through your house? Rather than squishing everyone into the living room and kitchen, you can extend your home’s critical square footage by creating an outdoor room. Of course, there is no better place to do this than under a backyard patio cover.
How you choose to utilize the space under your patio cover installation is entirely up to you. You can set up a barbecue and dining spot where over a dozen people can munch away or relaxing couches perfect for wine and gossip. Our personal favorite is lining up our solid patio cover with the edge of your pool to create a swim-up bar and rest spot out of the sun!
A common question that comes with any outdoor installation is maintenance. Do you need to worry about rust, rot, or other damages occurring over time?
By installing a high-quality solid patio cover, you never have to worry about maintenance. We at Patio Covers Unlimited construct our solid patio covers out of high-grade aluminum, embossed with a wood grain texture, resulting in the look of real wood without the upkeep. Unlike standard wood patio covers, our patio cover installations will not crack, warp, split, chip, or peel and will not chalk or fade even under constant UV and wind exposure.
Plus, all of the solid patio covers built by Patio Covers Unlimited include a complete gutter system and are backed with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. It can’t get any easier than that!
#5: Add Value to Your Home
With the massive changes the past few years have brought to society, how we use our homes has changed and adapted to our new circumstances. Families are spending more time than ever at home, whether that is parents working remotely, kids attending virtual school, or events occurring in the backyard rather than at a location.
With this home-centered ideology, potential homeowners are looking for any additional amenities that will enhance their home experience, and backyard patio covers are one of them.
Suppose you are considering selling your home in the future. In that case, whether it is next year or ten years down the line, a backyard patio cover installation is an excellent investment that will add value to your home and increase your ROI.
Are you ready to reap all five of the benefits above in your outdoor space? We at Patio Covers Unlimited are ready to help!
