Why Aluminum Is the Best Material for Outdoor Enclosures
Getting an outdoor enclosure installed on a home can expand living space and increase the home’s value. These structures are built using one of three basic materials: aluminum, vinyl or steel.
Aluminum is by far the best choice over vinyl and steel, and here are a few reasons why:
- Withstands extreme temperatures and severe weather conditions
- Low maintenance
- Available in a variety of baked-in colors
- Strong enough to mount ceiling fans and light fixtures
- Panels can be cut to any length
- Easy to install
Types of Aluminum Outdoor Enclosures
The most common and popular outdoor enclosures installed onto homes are underdeck ceilings, patio covers, and screen rooms.
Also referred to as underdecking systems, these enclosures are built beneath a second-story deck. A seamless ceiling is installed underneath the deck flooring. Gutters move rain and melting snow away from the space under the deck. The result is a dry area that can be used for many purposes: storage, entertaining, relaxation, and more. Underdecking systems are also sold as kits that can be installed as a DIY project.
A screen room can be installed on an existing porch, deck or patio. It provides the ability to enjoy the pleasant outdoor weather without the hassle of insects and other pests, wind-blown debris. Rain will not drive people indoors, nor will they get burnt from the UV rays of the sun. Relax in a shaded, dry, enclosed area, while enjoying the view.
Typically, patios are used occasionally for barbecuing and outdoor dining. But when the rain showers come, or the sun is unbearable, the area is not very comfortable. A patio cover offers protection from these elements, allowing the space to be used and enjoyed more often.
