A patio cover can be the perfect addition to any home or business. Whether it’s attached or a stand-alone structure, a patio cover creates a safe, comfortable haven from the harsh elements and hot summer sun. At Pacific Home & Patio we take pride in providing you with patio covers that turn your patio into a outdoor space for all to enjoy.
However, not all patio covers increase the value and usability of your home or business. That’s why it’s important to avoid a poorly built patio cover. Rather than creating a safe haven, a poorly built patio cover can not only become a nuisance but a hazard as well
There are many dangerous risks posed by poorly built patio covers. First and foremost, a poorly built patio cover can fall, endangering you, your family or your customers. Poorly built patio covers can also damage your home or business. If a patio cover is poorly connected, it could collapse and take part of a building with it which can result in costly repairs.
Even if a poorly built patio cover doesn’t fall down, you may face fines or legal problems if it was built without the proper permits and isn’t up to code. Not only would you have to pay for the cost of a poorly built patio cover but you would be responsible for the cost of tearing it down, any fines or fees, and you’ll be back to square one without a patio cover.
If you’re considering adding a patio cover to your home or business, it’s important to do things right the first time. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following list of things you should avoid.
While a DIY home improvement project can be fun, adding a patio cover without the knowledge and expertise of residential construction can result in engineering issues and code violations. That’s why it’s best to leave the installation of a new patio cover up to the professionals at Pacific Home & Patio.
It can be tempting to hire someone who isn’t licensed because they claim they can provide you with a cheaper, faster patio cover. Don’t fall for it! You only get what you pay for which is a poorly built patio cover by a builder that specializes in cutting corners.
Hiring a licensed professional like Pacific Home & Patio is the best way to ensure you get a safe, structurally sound, high-quality patio cover. While it seems like it may cost a little more, you’ll end up saving money on costly repairs, maintenance, demolition, and more. We promise to provide you with the peace of mind knowing your patio cover is built to last and will provide you with many years of comfort, beauty, and enjoyment without any strenuous upkeep.
