Benefits of adding an Attached Roof System to your backyard

Posted July 23, 2020 in Attached Roof System, Blog, Decks, Outdoor Kitchen, Patio and Walkway

Any homeowner that lives in Pennsylvania or New Jersey realizes that our weather and seasons really predict how much time we are able to enjoy outside in our backyards. This is why it is important to consider an attached roof system when designing your patio, deck, outdoor kitchen, or pool. An attached roof system will extend the use of your outdoor living space and also provide shelter from the rain, wind, and sun so you can spend more time outdoors.

Here are three ways an attached roof system will benefit your outdoor living space:

  • Extend the use of your outdoor living space
    Many homeowners want an outdoor living space that they can enjoy all year long. However, in Pennsylvania and New Jersey homeowners can typically only use their patio, deck, or outdoor kitchen 6 months out of the year.

    At MasterPLAN, we love to incorporate bromic heaters into our designs. This helps homeowners extend the use of their outdoor living space! Adding bromic heaters to your attached roof system can extend the use of your outdoor living space up to 2-3 months throughout the year.

  • Enhance the functionality of your outdoor living space
    Do you find yourself avoiding your backyard because of the unbearable sun? Maybe you want to grill, but it’s raining? Adding an attached roof system to your backyard will enhance the functionality of your outdoor living space so that the weather never dictates your outdoor activities.

    Lighting, sound, phantom screens, and ceiling fans can also be incorporated in your roof system to help increase the functionality of your space. When helping you visualize your backyard transformation, your MasterPLAN designer will help you identify your problems and define how you will use your space. This helps us guide you in selecting the best design solutions, features, material, and finishes.

  • Add value to your home
    Exterior upgrades enhance the look of your property and an attached roof structure can help you maximize the value of your home. However, when adding an attached roof structure to your home you will want to make sure your contractor is focused on connecting it to your home’s architecture.
    This will ensure a beautiful blend between your indoor and outdoor living spaces while creating a seamless connection to your home. At MasterPLAN, we focus on the architectural connection between your new outdoor living space and your home so you are never left with an eyesore. When designing your space, we will help you select materials and architectural touches that mirror your home interior and build upon its facade.

Planning a new backyard is a very exciting process, but we get how overwhelming it can be and you might be worried that your new space won’t provide shelter from the rain, wind, and sun. You are not alone!
