What are the Benefits of Patio Covers?

Posted on January 24, 2019

Patio Covers San Antonio

Adding a patio cover to your San Antonio home seems like a no-brainer - covering will protect you from the heat and allow you to enjoy your outdoor space for a longer time. But, while that benefit could be reason enough to convince you to install one, there are a few other benefits to having a patio cover installed in your home. Knowing these should make the decision to add a patio cover even easier, as you will see that there is more than just the obvious benefits to having a patio cover for your home's outdoor space.

It Protects From the Sun

While protection from the heat of the sun is an obvious benefit of a patio cover, what may not be as obvious is the protection of your patio from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Installing a patio cover will allow your patio furniture - and the patio itself - to last longer, due to the protection against these harmful rays. UVA and UVB rays will cause the furniture's color to fade and can cause the materials to weaken over time. This is especially crucial if you want to have leather furniture on your patio, which can dry out and crack if not protected properly. If your patio is covered, your furniture is protected against these weakening rays, and will thus last for a much longer time. This makes a patio cover a great investment, as it will save you money in the long run from having to replace your patio furniture, cushions, and other objects you keep outside in the summer.

It Makes the Patio More Accessible 

The cooling benefits of the patio cover shouldn't be overlooked, but again, that's not all a patio cover can do. We all know about the strong summer storms that can occur in the San Antonio region. If you have a patio cover, you can protect your furniture - and yourselves - from the driving rains and strong winds that come with those storms. Therefore, a patio cover not only allows those who cannot abide direct sunlight to enjoy time spent outdoors, it will also make your patio available for use, even in poorer weather conditions.

It Adds to Your Home's Design

One of the best benefits of a patio cover is the ability to add another design feature to your home quite easily. Patio covers can be custom-built to any style, depending on your design aesthetic. As it is a part of your home's roof line, a patio cover can dramatically change your home's curb appeal. A patio cover - if used in the right way - can change the entire look of your home. If there is a specific style you are looking for, a patio cover can add to the overall effect and help turn your home into the aesthetic you are looking for.
