Patio enclosures are an effective way of extending your entertainment space and outdoor living area without the costly option of adding on a new room. Not to mention, you can choose from a variety of styles, designs, colors, and sizes for the patio area. You may choose to install a simple roof or overhang, or go for the complete package – a screened in patio with structured walls and entryways. Installing a patio enclosure is not a home improvement project that you want to tackle yourself. Take advantage of our handyman services. Not only will this save you time and effort, but you can rest assured that the finished product is safe and sturdy.
Once you decide to improve your home’s value by enclosing the patio, you must assess the area. How large is the area that you want to enclose and how much protection is desired? The protection level can range from a roof option, to semi-enclosed, to fully enclosed. Consider some of your options below:
Patio Roof – This option is convenient for homeowners with a small patio already in place. If your space is limited, consider having a handyman install a patio awning. You may choose from modern stylish retractable awnings, which extend over and beyond the patio without the need for complete structure support. Awnings are suitable for alfresco patios, if that’s what you’re working with.
Shade Sails or Umbrellas – This is another flexible option for alfresco patios. You can utilize shade sails to create a patio of any shape and size. If your patio is detached, large umbrellas can provide shade and protection. A handyman can permanently install this feature so that your umbrella doesn’t fly across the yard during windy storms.
Semi or Fully Enclosed Patio – If you are looking for an all weather dining, relaxing, and living area, this option is for you. Whether you need a semi or fully enclosed patio depends on the climate and your preference. A screened in patio is ideal for providing additional shade and keeping out those pesky insects.
Homeowners that are interested in sprucing up the overall look of their property, and making it more functional but at the same time more practical, should definitely consider installing an outdoor deck. Outdoor decks are a great way to improve accessibility in and out of the home, as well as create an ideal area for entertaining, relaxing, and other family activities.
Attempting to tackle a DIY deck project can leave you with mediocre, unsatisfying results. Such involved household projects are better left to the expertise of The Handyman Company, especially since there is a huge safety factor to consider. Our certified professionals will use the finest materials and up to date training in order to provide you with a beautiful and sturdy deck that will withstand even the most fickle Florida weather.
If you already have an outdoor deck, but it is in need of repairs or a fresh look, our handyman services still have you covered. When it comes to the safety and lifetime of your deck, inspection is key. Maintenance and upkeep will ensure that your outdoor deck stays visually stunning and safe all year long.
Consider the following benefits of installing outdoor decks:
- Eco friendliness
- No painting required
- Visually pleasant
- Family friendly
- Entertaining opportunities
- Increased property value
Whether you are in the market for a brand new outdoor deck, or standard wear-and-tear repairs, we want to get the job done for you, in a timely and efficient manner.
A deck is damaged due to age, poor maintenance or careless use. For example, plant containers that overflow cause the wet area underneath to rot. Termites can also damage the deck. The solution is usually decided by the extent of the problem. Small local damages can be repaired. If there is structural damage or if the deck has neared the end of its useful life or begun to sag, it has to be replaced.
Some indications that a deck may need replacement:
- Rot is visible in the outer regions of the frame
- The deck feels spongy when you walk on it and some areas are soft
- Loose railing posts
- The frame does not hold screws and nails
If you think your outdoor deck may need replacement, contact us today to schedule an assessment!
