Enclosing Your Home's Patio Space


Enclosing the patio where your family spends a lot of time outdoors can be a worthwhile investment that is able to greatly improve the comfort of those that are currently occupying the patio space.

Will A Patio Enclosure Compromise The Appearance Of Your House?

A homeowner that is worried about changing the appearance of their house may have concerns about the effects that enclosing the patio will have. While this can be an understandable concern, it is possible for a professional patio enclosure contractor to help you design an enclosure that will closely match the rest of your home. In many cases, it can be possible to create an enclosure that will be easy to mistake as being an original part of the home.

Will An Enclosure Make The Patio Feel Stuffy?

It can be easy to assume that enclosing the patio will always make this space stuffy and comfortable. Yet, it is possible to install ventilation systems that will be able to help keep the patio space comfortable despite being fully enclosed. This can be done by having active ventilation and air circulation systems installed while also having passive ventilation that allows the warm air inside the patio to escape. Designing the ventilation systems for the patio enclosure can be one of the more challenging parts of this project, but it is among the most important for keeping the patio as comfortable as possible even when the temperature outside is fairly warm or hot.

Will A Patio Enclosure Add Substantial Amounts Of Weight To Your Elevated Patio?

Many homes will have elevated patio spaces. This design will require the deck of the patio to be supported with poles that may be placed in the ground. As a result of this design, these patios are more likely to have a limited weight capacity. This can be an important consideration when you are enclosing the patio as the walls and ceiling for the enclosure will add to the weight that will have to be supported. Luckily, it is possible to have the supports for the patio reinforced, and this can allow it to more easily support the weight of the enclosed patio. As part of the initial evaluation, a patio enclosure contractor will assess the design of your patio to determine whether it is capable of supporting the weight of the enclosure and the most effective way of reinforcing the patio if it is determined to be necessary.

Feel Safe in a New Neighborhood

Eleven years ago, I met the man of my dreams. Unfortunately, he lived seventy-five miles away from my hometown. After dating for nearly a year, we became engaged.

Because I was raised in the country, I didn’t immediately feel safe in my new, crowded neighborhood. Have you recently moved into a new neighborhood? Perhaps, you feel uneasy staying at your new home alone. If you’re frightened living in a new place, consider hiring a fence contractor.
