Patio Covers or Deck Covers are a Great Family Addition and Entertainment Area
What is the number one reason why most people don’t use their deck or patio? They don’t have a deck or patio cover. Many homeowners spend thousands on their decks or patios. But it is surprising how many of them forget to get a deck or patio cover installed. The end result is an outdoor living space they practically never use.
It gets hot here in the Midwest – it gets even hotter on your deck or patio.
Many homeowners fail to take into consideration just how hot in can get here in the Midwest. Here in South Dakota we get about 90 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer – I remember one year it hitting over 120 degrees. When it gets that hot it’s almost impossible to sit outside without shade.
By simply installing a deck or patio cover you can instantly make your deck cooler, more comfortable, and much more usable.
But installing a deck or patio cover does a lot more than just making things more comfortable – it can actually save you money. According to a study conducted by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers, solar radiation through glass is responsible for approximately 20% of the load on an air conditioner. By installing a cover you block a large portion of the solar radiation coming in through your sliding glass door and windows.
