Do you love spending time outdoors, but don't enjoy dealing with the insects, the heat and the cold? These days, there are few boundaries that prevent you from creating the perfect outdoor living space. Here, you'll find a few ideas that can help you complete the outdoor living space of your dreams.
If you have an uncovered porch or patio, you're missing out on a lot of time that you could be spending out there. You have a number of options to cover the porch or patio – to meet all budgetary needs.
Wood and Shingles – This is a long-term option. You can choose the size, style and materials used to coordinate with the house or fit your needs.
Canopies – Not so much a long-term option, but it can get you through the mild seasons of the year. These will need to be taken down before winter hits because they will not withstand the weight of the snow laying on top of it.
Oh, the bugs! They can ruin a perfect evening very quickly. Fortunately, you can enclose the area with screens. Screens can be installed permanently or temporarily. Do you want the space enclosed with screens year-round? If not, retractable screens are a wonderful option to consider.
Retractable screens can be installed on nearly any porch, pavilion, garage or structure that has a roof. These can be custom made to fit the structure perfectly. They are available in both motorized and hand-powered models. With just a push of a button, the screens will close and shut the door to those pesky bugs trying to ruin your evening.
Staying warm when things get chilly and cooling off when things heat up can be difficult when you working to finish an outdoor living space.
You'll need to decide what type of heat source you'd like to add – a fireplace, fire pit or propane heating.
To cool the space, you can add ceiling fans for structures with durable roofing. If you don't have a roof over the space, there are a number of outdoor fans that you can use – some even spray a light mist to cool you on the hottest days.
One feature of the retractable screens that can help with temperature control is including the clear vinyl feature with the screens. The clear vinyl panels allow you to see in and out and maintain the inside temperature rather well. This will extend your outdoor living season greatly.
These are just a few ideas that can help you update your patio or porch and create a space that you can enjoy most of the year.
Thanks for visiting my website. My name is Justin Cook. I am an avid do-it-yourselfer. I hate paying a contractor a large sum of money when I know that I can complete the project myself much cheaper by doing my own labor. However, there were a few projects I avoided because I didn't have access to the heavy equipment that would be needed to do the job. While surfing the web and looking at construction websites, I saw an advertisement for heavy equipment rentals. I had no idea I could rent this type of equipment. After doing some research, I learned what I needed to know about renting this type of machinery. I created this website because I figured if I didn't know, others didn't. If you are looking to rent heavy equipment for the first time, I hope my website answers any and all questions you may have.
