If you’re looking into improving your yard and maybe extend your living space, you can’t go wrong with adding a patio. In today’s post, local exterior remodeling and roofing contractor Pechacek’s General Contracting shares the reasons why patios are a good investment.
1. It can increase your home’s value — Patios are among home improvements that are proven to add value to a home. This is an important consideration if selling your home is part of your long-term plan; a house with a patio is more desirable for home buyers. But even if you’re not planning on selling your home, you’ll still want to invest in a project that can add to your home’s value.
2. It can increase your living area — A new patio can be an extension of your home’s living area. Many homeowners design their patio in such a way that it connects to the house through a patio door. Patio covers can make it a shaded place to relax in while enjoying a cool breeze. It can also be your getaway space if you have home improvements like gutter installation being done to your home. With more people being able to go back out and visit friends and family, a patio is the perfect place to host those summer backyard barbecues.
3. It can help you save on your cooling bills — A covered patio can add shade to parts of your house. This can help reduce your home’s indoor cooling requirements by blocking heat from the sun. It can also help reduce wear on siding and window frames caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays.
4. It simply looks good — The best reason for investing in a patio is also the simplest: it can make your home look good. Your patio can be designed to be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. It can have its own grilling station, a pool even a breakfast nook. If your property has a sloping backyard — which is typical on hillside homes — a multi-level deck can be built so you can take full advantage of the view. The phrase may sound like a cliché, but the possibilities with a patio are, indeed, endless.
