A pergola is used to cover an area like a walkway or backyard to provide shade for an outdoor area that you will want to spend time in. A patio cover is an attached structure that creates shade on a patio that may be completely shaded or part shade. Pergola and patio cover are words used interchangeably.

 

 

Patio covers offer many added benefits from a shield from outdoor elements like heat and rain. A patio adds space to your home to enjoy with your family and friends outside even when the weather acts up. The added comfort and pleasure a patio enclosure brings is endless.

When it comes to picking the material of a patio, most homeowners want an Aluminum Patio Cover. This type of material for your patio cover offers superior value because it is lightweight, durable, and maintenance free. Those three factors make this an invaluable purchase. In addition, aluminum patio covers are powder coated to increase durability and come with a built-in drainage system to protect your property. They will almost always come with a warranty. You can buy them with a lattice or solid roof.

 

When you consider buying an aluminum patio cover, you always want to know the cost involved. The cost varies on the size of the patio cover needed, location, labor, and whether a contractor installs the patio for you. In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $5,500 to $10,000 for your patio cover, not including labor for 20×20 feet.

 

Some additional costs to consider can be adding any furniture, barbecue, outdoor heater, and any other accessory to be added as part of the patio contract. Of course, the cost of these greatly varies from a couple hundred to several thousand. You may consider adding a screened in porch to this look for an additional $3,000 to $5,000.

 

If you want to reduce your cost, you may consider choosing a different material. Different material may involve more maintenance cost and a shorter lifetime of enjoyment.
If you choose a different material like a wood lattice, the cost will be less anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 depending on how lavish you want your patio.

 

Homeowners should figure out exactly how they want their patio to look and what type of material they want before taking on a contractor. Once they know this, it is recommended to get several estimates to include project, labor, prep, and clean-up work. You will then be able to pick a company soundly based on your needs and wants. Also, ask about the contractors experience and how long they have installed patio covers before you go with the guy offering the lowest price. Lowest priced ticket items can be low due to lack of experience or poor customer reviews.

There is a lot to be said in the service industry whether you are making hot plates, babysitting, providing massages, or services on a home. The service industry works really hard to please the customer. Whatever it takes they do it. They want to please you and see you return as a customer again. Even better, you refer to a friend or family member to them. That’s the ideal situation. Then everyone is calling them for their babysitting skills.

I had a lot of work done recently in my home, so I know what to expect in those industries. I had the interior of my house painted. Those guys were amazing. They utilized such precision with each stroke of their paintbrush against my walls. It was a masterpiece when they were done. I was amazed. I don’t think just anyone could do such an amazing job. You have to be skilled in that area.

Another project I had done recently is some repairs on my fencing. I had to have many wooden panels replaced throughout my property. I was just thinking about what it takes to be the best in that industry. I started with the internet the same as anyone else looking for the best service provider. I searched for fence companies near me and located the company I used. The reviews they had on their page looked stellar. They answered the phone when I called. That’s a plus because often times service workers are in the middle of service for someone else and have to return the call later. Not to mention the ease of getting an appointment on the books the same week! Johnny showed up and was able to get my fence together with great ease and peace of mind. He told me what he was going to do to fix the problem, fixed the problem as he promised, and left with a guarantee of his work. I don’t know about you, but if the worker doesn’t offer a guarantee of their work then I don’t want their service.

In addition, you have to have an excellent worker for sure. If the worker doesn’t show up on time, that will kill a business. The quality of work needs to be good too. If the wood panels he put in for me didn’t hold or weren’t flush with the rest of my fence, then I definitely wouldn’t use that company anymore. Lastly, the price needs to be affordable or make sense with the service they are providing.

Those service industries that offer guarantees of their work, quality work, great work, and customer service are game changers to those industries that miss one or two of these. I really value those in the service industry and all that they do. They push themselves to please the customer every day. Hopefully, the customer takes a second to see this and appreciate it. I do.
