Almost everyone has a budget and we realize that money doesn’t grow on trees. We can help you get the most out of your new patio cover project by working within your budget, not including options that you don’t want and controlling the size to fit your lifestyle.
Appropriately Size the Project
Size is the greatest contributing factor when determining the price of any home add-on. If you only need to comfortably fit a table and four chairs, then a smaller and cheaper size would be most appropriate. Conversely, if you have huge gatherings a tiny covered patio or shaded pergola area would then be a waste of money.
Only Include the Most Important Options
There are many options available on any project that we build but if you don’t need them then we should not include them in your quote. Ceiling fan and lighting options can add up when calculating project cost. Do you really need $1,000.00 worth of ceiling fans or would that money be better spent enlarging a new concrete slab? Expensive colonial columns are nice but structurally they are not needed. If screening in an area is it necessary to build a huge patio enclosure or should the walls be added in the future? In the short term, it may make more sense to only do what is needed now and we can always return in the future to add onto any project.
Control the Budget
A great example of saving money on outdoor projects are some of the options we can suggest when building a new screen room. To cut cost maybe only partially screen in a patio instead of doing the whole thing. Most customers are surprised to learn that just by shortening the project scope, thousands of dollars can be saved.
These are just a few suggestions that we are pleased to offer when designing a new covered patio project. Call us today to see what other cost saving measures we can incorporate into your new patio ideas.
