April Showers Bring May Patio Covers: Screened Porches, 3-Season Rooms & More, We have the Rain and Shade Solution to Cherish the Outdoors in Any Weather
Do you find yourself stuck indoors for days on end due to rainy spring weather? Are you planning to use your deck or patio while hosting a large birthday party or another event this spring, but are worried about whether the weather will hold out?
Don’t let your outdoor space go unused because it is rainy! With Archadeck of Salt Lake on your side, you can enjoy your deck, patio or another outdoor area with a custom roof or patio cover. We can convert your deck into a covered back porch, screened porch or even a 3-season room depending on your overarching goals.
Depending on the size and location of your patio space we can do one of three things to provide rain protection. Building a roof that extends out from your home over the adjoining patio area will keep it dry, and it will look like a natural extension of your home.
Under-deck patios can enjoy full protection from rain by installing Trex Rain Escape. Collecting water from in between decking boards, the Trex Rain Escape system diverts water into gutters to keep the space under the deck dry all season long.
Lastly, we can build free-standing roofs over patios that are away from the house. Detached patio covers are similar to picnic shelters; you can choose something as elaborate or simple as you’d like to create a dry, shaded space anywhere on your property.
When it comes to outdoor living in Salt Lake and Park City, decks are the most popular choice. With new low-maintenance options, they can withstand the fluctuating seasons and are more practical for sloping backyards. If you find you’re not using your deck enough due to hot sun or frequent rain, you may want to consider converting it to what many call a covered porch. By adding a roof that extends out from your home’s roof, we’ll create a functional dry and shaded space right outside of your backdoor. Not only will you enjoy shade and rain protection, but you’ll also gain a great location for kicking off wet shoes, drying off muddy dog feet, or even barbecuing outdoors during inclement weather.
Screened in Porches & 3-Season Rooms
For additional weather protection, we can take your covered deck one-step further by screening in the space. Transforming your deck into a screened-in porch provides protection from insects in addition to the rain and sun protection. You’ll also enjoy the added bonus of increased privacy depending on your screen choice.
Do you still need further protection or extended outdoor living function? Replace the screens with porch windows such as Eze-Breeze for a flexible space to enjoy when pollen is high, rain is falling, the sun is blazing, or the temperatures are falling. Adjust the clear vinyl porch windows to be completely closed or up to 75% open for as much or little fresh air as you’d like. Add a space heater, and your new 3-season room becomes a comfortable space even in cool weather.
