Insulating your home is not only understandable, it is also necessary. Insulation helps maintain an ideal temperature indoors, especially when it gets too cold outside. But is it necessary to insulate an open space? Especially if your area doesn’t really experience extreme weather?
Take the case of Brisbane. The area is known for its warm climate all-year-round. According to a website called Living In Australia, Brisbane’s climate is generally sunny with the months of January, February and December being usually the hottest months of the year. Winter doesn’t get too cold and is characterised by blue skies and dry weather.
In a place like Brisbane, one might ask: Why should I invest in insulating an open outside space in my home?
What homeowners tend to forget is that insulation works both ways. It also keeps heat away from a space, say your patio, making it a more comfortable place for leisure.
Other benefits of investing in insulated patio roofing
- Provides better and cooler shade — Insulated patio roofs provide shade that prevents concrete pads from becoming a heat sink. The patio will feel cooler than if you use uninsulated roofs.
- More connection with the outdoor — You will still feel the gentle breeze or have a perfect view of your garden and be able to enjoy the smell of the flowers but without the discomfort of the heat.
- Looks better — An insulated patio roof has a more finished look than an uninsulated one. Your patio will look more attractive, neat and uncluttered. This, combined with the durability of insulated patio roofs, will raise the patio’s value.
- Keeps ceiling lights and fans safely concealed — Extreme heat can damage sensitive electrical wiring. In some cases, the cords can even melt.
Insulated patio roofs are made from a variety of materials, including stainless steel, fibreglass or aluminium. They are designed to fit any kind of frame and are available in varied thickness. Installing insulated patio roofs won’t necessarily take a long time. As long as materials are readily available, it would take an average of a couple of days to finish the installation.
So is it worth it?
A patio maximises your outdoor living experience by allowing you to do more with your outdoor space. And although the costs of having an insulated patio roof is a bit higher than normal, why not invest in it so that you can enjoy a full outdoor living experience? After all, you are spending to enhance your living space. This will make you and your family more comfortable and more satisfied with your living area. Why not spend a little extra for you?
