The existing patio area was quite small, with barely enough room for a few chairs. It was also quite exposed to the elements, limiting the amount of permanent furniture able to be kept outside.
The outdoor area was beautiful and peaceful. Enjoying the outdoors while minimising the insect problem was the main goal of the project.
With these problems in mind, our client called Atlas Awnings to discuss ways to get outside and stay outside more regularly.
Extending the patio by building a insulated patio roof increased the available living space, creating a new room.
The client discussed the issue of insect proofing with Atlas Awnings at the start of the project, so the patio roof was built with the addition of zipscreen blinds in mind. The patio roof was to be built first, then the blinds would be measured to ensure exact fit to maximise the barrier for insects.
Zipscreen blinds were installed on all sides of the patio area, effectively providing a screened in area for the clients to relax and enjoy the view of the bushland.
Zipscreens also have the flexibility of opening to the full height, making the area open during low insect periods. They also provide wind protection and rain shower protection, making the whole patio completely adaptable to all weather conditions.
The patio area is complete, offering shade, protection from insects, weather resistance, and a privacy barrier from the public reserve. The perfect alfresco solution!
The client was very happy with the result, giving them a great area to spend time in without the hassle of the elements. Zip screen tracked blinds are a great option for areas like this, so if you are interested, check out of zip screen and zip track tracked blinds, or contact Atlas Awnings and let us help you design and build your perfect patio.
