August 5, 2008

It's always a wonderful time when you get exactly what you are looking for.  Most people have at least a few improvements they would like to make to their home.  One of the more popular improvements is to build a patio room.  Who wouldn't want to have a place to relax in the evenings, enjoy al fresco breakfasts with your significant other, and throw the best parties?  Patio rooms can be built to your specifications and designed for year round use.  One of the most important aspects of your patio is going to be the patio room panels.  The type you choose will directly impact the seasons you can use your patio room and the activities it will be appropriate for.

Patio Room Panels

The first thing to understand about patio room panels is that the term can refer to either the wall construction or the windows of the room.  With the wall construction, you can decide that your contractor is going to use a prefabricated patio room from the factory.  These kits tend to be really well made, but they often look exactly like what they are, pre made pieces that have nothing to do with the style and integrity of your home.  On the other hand, if you instruct your builder to build from scratch you can be more certain it will fit in with original style of your home. 

Moving onto the windows part of patio room panels, you will have to decide how many months a year you want to have use of your room and what type of privacy you want.  If year round fun is your goal, then most builders will recommend using double hung windows just like you would on the inside of the house.  Placement of windows is important for things like protecting the room from the hottest part of the day or limiting how much other people can see into your room.

Patio room panels have to be chosen with the look, function, and appeal of the room in mind.
