Those of us down south might think we’re immune from proper winters, but nature has a way of surprising us every time—and, with the cold weather becoming harsher and more unpredictable every year, there’s only one piece of advice we can give you: Always prepare for the worst. This especially goes for winterizing your home. In particular, you, your patio, and your entire home can benefit greatly from a rugged, weather-resistant winter patio enclosure.
Here’s why it’s never too late to install one at your home.
It Benefits You
Many people struggle to cope with the plunging temperatures and limited daylight of winter, but having a patio enclosure can make a huge difference. Why? Because installing a clear vinyl porch curtain around your patio, and adding a space heater, means you’re all warm and cozy and enjoying the great outdoors at the same time.
Having this winter refuge will:
- Lift your mood
- Protect your health from the elements
- Give you an additional space to relax
- Allow for stress-free entertaining
It Benefits Your Patio
Snow, rain, and strong winds don’t just affect you but all external surfaces. Without a patio enclosure, you’re going to spend a lot more time cleaning your patio after every storm instead of enjoying it as you should be.
Not only that, but an effective patio enclosure system will extend the life of your patio, ensuring that you can wait for much longer to perform costly repair or replacement work. In other words, that enclosure will eventually pay for itself.
It Benefits Your Home
Many people forget all about their patio in the winter time, thinking that it’s more trouble than it’s worth. But what if you could turn it into an asset instead of a liability?
A Lower Energy Bill
Adding an enclosure to your porch or patio is like adding an extra insulating layer to your house. Warm air is trapped more effectively inside your home during the winter months, meaning it’s more energy efficient and less power is required to keep it at the same temperature. That, in turn, means big savings on your energy bill!
Protection for Your Plants
Many plants suffer from frost and cold during the winter, causing damage to what should be a beautiful and hassle-free garden. Storing them inside an enclosed space like a patio solves this problem and saves you from having to replace your favorite bloomers every year.
Easy Space Saving
Homeowners are often faced with the difficult decision of where to put exposed patio furniture during inclement weather. During the colder and wetter months, this often means the furniture will take up valuable space in the garage or basement.
With a high-quality weatherproof patio enclosure, there’s no need to move the furniture at all. In fact, you can put even more of your things outside, saving you room indoors and a lot of effort.
