Part three of a series on how to pick patio covers explores why you should always opt for professional installation.
Why Should a Professional Install Patio Covers at Your Home or Business?
If you wish to install patio covers in Phoenix, you have to know what you’re doing. Patio covers have to have several traits. For one thing, they have to be structurally sound, and they have to be properly placed. If you don’t know what you’re doing you can either damage your home, the patio covers themselves, or maybe even both. One of our customers, Janice had this problem happen to her.
Janice is on a fixed income, so she was trying to save money. She decided to buy patio covers for her home in Mesa, and wanted to save money on installation. So she ran a free classified ad got someone who claimed to be qualified, and he ended up breaking her upstairs bathroom window as well as bending one of the panels for the covers. So, in an attempt to save money, she ended up having to spend even more.
Patio Covers and Professional Installation
Patio covers that are professionally installed not only look great and last a long time, they are also structurally sound. So, you don’t have to worry about them getting crumpled or damaged. A professional installer knows how to support them properly as well as get them secured. That last part is kind of important in Arizona. While we don’t have many incidents of high winds, they can happen. During monsoon season for example, haboobs, which are basically dust storms can have sustained winds of 50 mph. And a patio cover that isn’t secured properly can become a flying danger during such a storm.
So as you see, when you’re making home improvements, know what you’re doing. And most of all, know when to call someone in for help, like a patio cover installer.
