Ella Naamah. Patio & Pergola. March 11th , 2017.
At that moment I made it my mission to locate the beach umbrella of our dreams, one that could handle the Texas coastline's occasionally hostile tropical winds. Several owners of pulley types finish up leaving the umbrellas open for the duration of the season, due to the fact it requires some muscle to open it, and then a massive, attached pin locks it in spot. I use a lot of sunscreen and when in/on the water I wear a hat and a rash guard which is often a lot more than sufficient...but in the past we have also used a beach umbrella.
I'm not telling you how to design your deck or patio, but I want to give you things to think about during your decision-making process. Then you design it - you know what you will enjoy.
But such incidents are rare and we should not be controlled by external forces. We could always install a burglar alarm system. Having a trained guard dog is another way of keeping the place safe.
If you think you don't have room to accommodate a gazebo, you might consider permanent awnings. Awnings are constructed of wood, metal, or clear polymers, extending from the wall of the house and slanting downward to allow precipitation to slide off. They are a wonderful way to cool off in the shade and stay dry from the rain, at a lower cost and in a small area than a whole gazebo.Warm Up Your Patio!
