Whether it’s your first house, or simply your current house, you spend a lot of time transforming it into a home. After painting the walls and updating the features, planting flowers, and maintaining the lawn, it may seem like there isn’t much left to do. Adding a patio creates a wonderful outdoor entertaining space, but the magic can be ruined with an impromptu thunderstorm.
Combat the unpredictable Oklahoma weather without compromising your valued outdoor space. Patio covers, whether installed yourself or by a professional, will let you continue to entertain through rain and shine. The fresh air will still let you breathe easy, but feel free to watch the snowfall or the sunrise with a nice cup of tea!
DIY or Professional Hire?
Even though you can easily build and install a patio cover yourself, having it professionally done can make a huge difference. First, you don’t have to do the labor. Instead of spending your weekend hustling up and down the ladder, you can let someone do the work for you. This doesn’t mean you’re compromising your style: you can sit down with the professionals and let them help you pick a design and color that best suits your needs. Last, and perhaps most importantly, they can complete the project in a very short amount of time which means you get to enjoy your patio sooner and more often than you’d ever imagined.
If you’re not especially construction-inclined, it may save you time, money, and headaches to hire a professional. Unexpected issues may arise, and if you aren’t prepared or know how to properly handle them, you may be waiting to enjoy your covered patio. Professionals, on the other hand, have a myriad of tools at their disposal to tackle any issue and get your construction back on track in a timely fashion. If the issues arise later rather than sooner, simply call the company who installed your cover and ask for a bit of help.
Improvements that Give Back
Like any in-demand upgrade, a covered patio will add value to your home. Even if you don’t see yourself moving any time soon, it’s nice to know that you’ll have a little extra guarantee if you do. If you are worried about spending the money to hire a professional to install your cover, consider this almost immediate return on your investment: as soon as the cover is up, so is the value of your home. Not to mention the benefits of enjoying the outdoors without suffering through Oklahoma’s weather!
The price of a patio cover can vary, depending on the size, style, and work required. The only price difference between doing it yourself and hiring a professional comes in during the cost of materials versus the cost of labor. If you’re uncertain if a patio cover is right for you and your budget, contact us for a consultation!
There are a million different reasons why patio covers are a smart investment. Regardless of your reason, you’ll be sure to reap the benefits of backyard barbeques without the sunburns, and mid-winter mornings without the aching for the outdoors.
