Adding a patio cover to your home can give you more space, increase the value of your home, and provide shelter from the weather. But it also can be used as the location of special events in your life.
From the most relaxed backyard cookout with friends to formal events, your home’s new patio cover can provide the ideal location for practically any event. It gives you a backup plan when it rains, provides shelter from the sun’s sweltering waves, and can even be cooled with fans to give your guests relief from high temperatures.
‘Will You Marry Me?’
Your home’s new patio cover can be the site of special occasions that you will remember forever. For example, you can propose to your loved one under your patio cover … then host your backyard wedding under it as well.
Backyard patio covers are perfect for hosting birthday parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, First Communions, baptisms, and many of the most important occasions in the life of your family.
Creating Precious Memories
Your patio cover can even become the go-to location for your most important family functions, such as celebrating the holidays. In Houston, for example, the weather is often warm enough during Thanksgiving or Easter to host your family’s traditional feast outdoors under your patio cover — especially if your outdoor grill is conveniently located nearby.
Buy some comfortable outdoor furniture to keep beneath your home’s new patio cover and it will soon become a favorite hangout for everybody. Enjoy an evening cocktail with your spouse or create a safe, comfortable outdoor space for your kids to do their homework or read.
You can even convert the space beneath your patio cover into an outdoor living room. Simply hang a flat screen to the wall, connect the satellite or cable, and during warm temperatures your family will spend as much time outdoors as they do indoors.
