Brinker Construction advises our loyal customers on the many ways to increase the value of their homes, without having to spend a fortune. For more than 30 years, our team of home services professionals has recommended a wide variety of patio cover designs that match the exterior decor of homes located in Dallas metroplex communities such as Irving, TX.

You have three primary types of patio covers to consider: metal, wood, or vinyl. There is also a hybrid type of patio cover called alumawood, which offers the benefit of a gorgeous wood covered patio and the long lasting durability of rugged aluminum. If you are worried about classic central Texas thunderstorms wreaking havoc on your deck or patio, a vinyl cover does an excellent job of resisting wind and hail damage.

Benefits of Installing Patio Covers for Irving, TX Homeowners

The benefits of adding a patio cover starts with how the home improvement feature protects guests against foul weather. When you attach sides to the cover, you block wind and rain from dampening the festivities. This means you can take advantage of the warm weather in Irving, Texas throughout most of the year by throwing more parties. Climate control features such as a mister and a heater create a comfortable outdoor space for entertaining guests year round. Abundant shade can lower the temperature under a custom outdoor patio cover by up to 10 degrees.

Installing a custom outdoor patio cover extends the indoor kitchen. You can build a food prep area near the back door leading directly into the kitchen to produce more room for cooking multiple course meals. You can also add a wet bar next to the prep area to open more room up inside of your home. A patio cover canopy and the support beams allow you to hang decorative lighting to enhance the ambiance of a dinner party or match the decor of a themed bash.

Protect Outdoor Furniture from Winter Weather

Not only is a patio cover an affordable home improvement feature, it also does a great job of protecting deck and patio furniture from the wrath of Mother Nature. You can store all of the outdoor furniture and recreational equipment under a patio cover throughout winter. Yes, Dallas winters are brief, but Irving, Texas residents know winter can bring crippling ice storms that not only shut down roads and highways, but also damage expensive outdoor furniture. This means you do not have to bring inside all of the furniture you use during spring, summer, and fall, which frees up more space in the basement.
