Mari Holzer. Patio & Pergola. February 12th , 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.
Fire pits come in hand hammered stainless steel finishes and enhance any backyard entertaining environment. These units come complete with a domed high temperature black powder coated fire screen and screen lift tool. The fire screen helps contain sparks from the fire just as a screen does on an indoor fireplace.
Patios are generally designed to catch the sun. Not necessarily, in warmer areas, the heat of the midday sun, but enough sun to give you that good sense of relaxation and well being that we get when exposed to lots of vitamin D.
If willing to experiment and build a Patio Cover, hammer out questions as to why you need a Patio Cover, for what purpose, whether it would be painted or made with wood, prefabricated aluminum or PVC, and if permission is required from state or city authorities. Remember that a patio is an extension of the house, generally not more than 12 feet and single-storied. The patio can be fully covered or have no cover. No special skills are required for building a Patio Cover except co-coordinating your patience, dimension of area, number of wood or aluminum panels and material required.
