If you are used to the Houston heat, you know know how bad it can get. Houston homes that have patio covers over their slider door may experience a temperature change of 10 – 30 %. If your deck or patio is on the east side of your home you probably know how unbearably hot the Houston area becomes with the warm summer weather. Patios and wood decks that are left open to mother natures heat can reflect massive heat to the inside of a home, doing this will create energy inefficiency and leave a home owner open to high energy costs. There are some additional things a home owner can do to protect the inside of their home such as planting healthy big leaf trees. Planting big healthy high density leaf trees will also protect your deck or patio cover. Some of the disadvantages of planting big healthy leaf trees is that it may take up to 15 years to have substantial blocking of the suns heat into your home.
