The sun is shining and it’s pretty great weather out there. Well, when it wants to behave. The Pittsburgh area summer temperatures average between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, give or take a few degrees. But, we also know what happens when the summer weather kicks into action– the mosquitoes are on the attack.
It’s no mystery why most humans, animals, or anything living has a fairly high disliking for the little buggers. They love to bite and buzz, and they leave us with an irritating itch! Not the best household guests, are they?
But, we also know that they come out in fleets right in unison with our work schedules. They come out early in the morning as you’re grabbing the paper, and they swarm at night when you want to relax outside after a hard day’s work.
So, how can you enjoy your patio when there are mosquitoes everywhere? You live in the marshy side of town, which only makes things worse. The wildlife is beautiful, but the mosquitoes; yikes!
Well, there are plenty of options. If you are looking for ways to improve your home’s livability and curb appeal, then choosing between a patio room and a sunroom may be your best bet. But, what is the difference, anyway? Keep reading!
The Patio Room
A patio room is a great idea for any homeowner looking for an escape room from the pesky critters and mosquitoes that ruin the outdoor experience. You may be hardly using the patio as is. Now is your chance to really make the most of your home and its assets. If you think you will ever sell, make the upgrade now and reap the benefits when your house gets sold.
By locating your local contractor who specializes in patio room installation, the job will get done in no time. With some insulation, flooring, beautiful windows, doors, and screens; your patio screen room will be good to go!
Are you finding it difficult to understand the rational behind screening in your patio? Well, nowadays homebuyers are looking for all the possible ways to improve their home’s beauty. When the time comes to sell, you are going to want to make home improvements by the bundle. If your home could use the extra space and the added curb appeal, then there’s no reason you shouldn’t enclose your patio.
So, what if you make the installation and then the house gets sold. But the new homeowner wants to have a room that can be used all year round? Do they have to tear down your patio room?
Enter the Sunroom
A patio enclosure is a great use of space and your money. By updating your patio into a patio room, you are actually taking the first step that could lead to becoming a room with a year-round purpose!
By just asking your contractor to make some changes you can have your very own year-round sunroom.
Your sunroom will provide you with all the natural light you could ever want, and you can even get glass that is insulated!
What’s Your Choice?
So, do you want to just escape the bugs and don’t really need to use the room all that much in the winter? Are you just interested in taking the first step and see how things go?
No problem. You can always upgrade your patio room into a sunroom. That’s the major difference between the two rooms. A patio room is not as advanced, or an as comfortable year-round space.
