Patio Enclosures Durham Region

One of the biggest and exciting perks to incorporating patio enclosures Durham Region to your outside space is the additional square footage it adds to your home (and by ‘extension’, adding even more value and entertaining space…a great investment strategy and future resale bonus!). As many Canadians enjoy their backyards in all weather and even more, their patio space (who doesn’t love to get outdoors and fire up the BBQ in the wintertime?), it is a win-win situation when homeowners convert their patios into a patio enclosed space for year-round enjoyment! A great first step is to ascertain if your new patio enclosure will be used in all seasons, some seasons, as a privacy shield, or just as a protective and enjoyable guard against the hot sun and bothersome insects. Upon choosing the style of patio enclosure, you will then want to consider door, window & hardware options (a great chance to personalize your patio enclosure even more!).

Patio Enclosures Materials

Glass: there are a couple of different types of glass, there is single glass pane (great for use during three of the Canadian seasons) and double glass pane (which is thermal-friendly and energy efficient throughout all four Canadian seasons). We offer our customers optional choices like tinting the glass, low-e glazing and interchangeable glass for screens.
Screens: screen material is a highly durable aluminium mesh that is painted black, to deflect some of the harmful UV rays that come through with natural sunlight and keeping insects out, using our high-grade screening that is made to be durable against the weather elements, and strong for longer life (our screen/mesh panels resist corrosion and sagging).
Aluminium: a great choice for its lower costs, its high rigidity, almost maintenance free, a larger variety of colours & sizes, it is lightweight, but it is a conductor which will require a thermal break in the aluminium framing.
Vinyl: is a top choice for its durability, maintenance-free appeal, resistant to mold, offering a wealth of colour palettes & wood-look or metal-look manufacturing, and is easier to install. The most cost-effective choice is vinyl for its versatility and made in various shapes, offering a smaller colour palette, is easily accessible and is a decent insulator (vinyl lasts for many years).
Wood: is the more expensive choice, but it is a natural material, it has a warm appearance, it is versatile for all sized constructions, it is an superb insulator of noise & heat (there are now rot-proof and exotic natural woods available), but it requires treatment (painting or staining) and regular maintenance.
Steel: is strong, pleasing to the eyes, is a higher quality material, is versatile for various sized constructions, but it has a low insulation factor and requires reinforced steel & anti-rust treatments (it is parallel in cost to wood), but can last for many years.
