With a covered deck or patio, you can enjoy your new outdoor living space even when the weather is not ideal. A covered deck or patio will protect you, your furniture, television, grill, and all the other important amenities and features that complete your new outdoor living space. However, it’s important to properly design your covered deck or patio and even more important to trust your builder. If not, you could end up with an overhead roof structure that not just looks out of place, but compromises the integrity of your home’s structure and architecture! This is why we are sharing three things you need to know before you begin construction on a new covered deck or patio in the Lehigh Valley:
Outdoor living spaces may not be an extra bedroom or bathroom, but the additional space will expand the size of your home’s footprint. Building an outdoor living space in the Lehigh Valley can also help increase the resale value of your home. However, you will want to make sure your new space naturally connects with the existing architecture of your home or it could look out of place, which can ruin your full enjoyment of the space and potentially hurt the resale value of your home.
At MasterPLAN, we are committed to helping you identify the best investment and ensuring it maximizes the value of your home. We know it is crucial to make sure your outdoor living space fits, flows, and connects to your home beautifully so it does not end up being an eyesore. This is why we use our design-first approach to show you exactly how your structure, material, and finish selections will complement the existing architecture of your home and enhance the overall appeal.
Night or day… Winter or summer… Rain or shine… You deserve to optimize the use of your outdoor living space. With a covered deck or patio, you will be more likely to stay outside even when it gets dark or when the weather is not ideal!
No one wants to feel cramped under their new covered patio or deck. This is one consideration your designer will take into account when sizing your outdoor hardscape or deck appropriately. You will want the space to be large enough to host your friends and family comfortably, but not too large that you are spending your hard earned money on wasted space. Utilizing our proven design/build model we combine the design and construction process to streamline the delivery of your new outdoor living space. Your dedicated designer will listen to the goals you have for your new space so everyone can move around comfortably on your new covered deck or patio.
Most of us don’t spend time in our backyards when the temperatures are too hot or cold. With a covered deck or patio you can include features that help control the temperature of your new outdoor living space so you are always comfortable. But, many Lehigh Valley contractors do not know how to place bromic heaters and outdoor ceiling fans properly or size these features appropriately.. This results in frustrated homeowners that believe bromic heaters and outdoor ceiling fans do not work. This is not true!
Our design-first approach to transforming your backyard helps make sure we know exactly how many, what size and where to place your bromic heaters and ceiling fans to optimize comfort in your new outdoor living space. We know hot air rises and quickly dissipates. This is why we strategically position your bromic heaters and outdoor ceiling fans in locations that allow you to feel comfortable all year long!
