Brandi Campos Patio, 2017-06-19 05:47:07. Concrete Patio Design - Transforming Kansas City! Much like anything else, a concrete patio design can be as individual and unique as the contents of a home. Thanks to the advent of inexpensive and highly adaptable concrete applications, a patio can evolve in almost any way the homeowner wishes. Kansas City is an area of the Midwest where there are very hot summers followed by very cold and wet winters. This means that concrete may be the best choice for any patio, as it is sturdy, easy to clean and practically impervious to the elements. Additionally, it is easy to add effects or to use in tight spaces.

The cloths are long lasting and tough, making damage from wind or storm unlikely. The closeness of the weave creates different levels of protection against the sun, giving the consumer yet more choice about the amount of protection desired - and cost, too.

You have to consider all the pros and cons to choose the right material for your needs and situation. Wood can give these structures a natural and rustic look. You have the option to add paint or stain to change the appearance of the wood at any time. This material is usually more cost effective, but it will not last as long as vinyl or metal.

Another consideration is insulation. Glass patio doors offer a lot of surface area for cold air to get in, and investing in either vertical cellular shades or heavy insulated curtains is an easy way to save on your heating bill.

For brick pavers, this means that you'll need to dig to about 9\" depth, since the pavers are 2 inches in height. Since this is a lot of digging, it may be one of the primary reasons to hire a landscape company.

There are electric patio heaters that can plug directly into an outlet (but not many, unless that outlet is dedicated just for this). When it is evident that the style and power needed is more than what can be plugged in, you have to consider the cost to have an electrician run wiring just for the patio heater. And with this type, you can also be strapped to where it can be placed to provide the heat you are looking for. Some are ceiling (or rafter) mounted and their base allows for some movement to direct heat to a specific spot.

Plus they can be a great source for sunlight. But you probably don't want your view open all the time, so window treatments are often needed for the times when you do need privacy, light control and even insulation.
Brandi Campos Patio, 2017-09-29 06:54:07. Patio door window treatments can be a challenge, so here are a few expert suggestions. The traditional choice would be vertical blinds or curtains on a traverse rod, which emphasize the dramatic dimensions of your patio door while providing complete privacy and light control. Aluminum, vinyl or cloth vertical blinds come in any color'matching them to standard horizontal blinds on your other windows is a good idea'and can provide a chic, modern accent for any room. Vertical blinds also come in faux wood, which is a good match with wood or composite blinds. Another interesting option you might want to consider are ceiling mount verticals, which would eliminate a potentially annoying gap between the ceiling and the door frame.

Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.

While not all of the large businesses located in Kansas City have patio areas for employees or clients, many, especially hotels, do. Concrete patios are an essential area for many area hotels, as it gives the guests a place to settle in for quiet during their stay. Often, the landscaping works around the concrete patio area, and is usually practically maintenance free, which means it will not require a great deal of continual expense. Many colleges and hospitals are also adding patio areas for visitors as well.
