If you’re staring longingly out at your garden this winter, you can rest in the knowledge that there are hundreds others across Calgary doing the same thing. The thought of warmer weather, of barbeques and of summer activities in your garden is what keeps many people going through the long winter months. However, it’s not long till you also remember the endless bugs, the wind that gets into everything and the harsh sunshine that drives everyone to cover at noon.
Living the screen room dream
Installing a screen room is one of the best ways to get the benefits of the summer months in Calgary while avoiding the drawbacks. Imagine a space which has a closed door to the rest of your home that puts you right up close with your garden so you can feel the breeze and smell the flowers, but one where you’re not being sent inside by the bugs or buying ugly lawn umbrellas to hide from the sun. That’s what it’s like having a screen in Calgary this summer.
Benefits of a screen room
Fortunately, winter is also the time for planning how to make the most of the Calgary summer through home improvements, and you’re not going to get better than installing a screen room with Desert Sun Patios. Some of the benefits of having a screen room include:
- A quick install – most screen rooms sit on top of your existing deck or patio and because they are lightweight construction, the entire project can be completed inside of a month. The fact that you don’t have to dig foundations or cause structural changes to the exterior of your house also helps to keep the costs down.
- Protection all summer long – a screen is a simple construction where most of the walls are replaced by mesh screens. This gives you all the benefits of being outside in your garden – the views, the smells, the warmth – while providing protection from the bugs, the sunshine and the wind. Of course, mesh screens won’t completely block the strong Calgary winds, but they’ll provide a windbreak inside the room, and you’ll be surprised at how well a screen room slows the wind speed across your entire garden.
- Extra space – anyone living in Calgary knows that space is often at a premium, so installing a screen room is a cheap and efficient way of expanding the footprint of your house without a whole bunch of building permits and regulations. Whether you’re simply looking for more space for your family or an investment as you get ready to sell your home, a screen room will add value to your home and make it stand out in the busy Calgary marketplace.
