As families grow, lifestyles change and new hobbies become the latest attraction, many homeowners may find themselves in need of more living space. While building an addition or buying a larger home are options to add this desired space, they can be both time consuming and expensive propositions. A great alternative to these ventures is building an outdoor room addition. Today’s modern pergolas can be fully customized to create that extra play space for the kids, expanded entertainment area for family holidays, or a dedicated space for relaxation.
Although the home purchasing process can be exhilarating, it can also be exhausting. Polling from the researchers at NerdWallet found that on average new homebuyers spend eight weeks on the hunt for a new home, and that is the fun part. What follows is selling your existing home. This prospect can be fairly daunting in the flooded South Florida real estate market. Residential listings average 50 days on the market right now. Add an extra week or so to finalize closing and most homeowners are looking at two months of waiting to sell a home. Building an addition could be an alternative to moving.
The first step in making the decision between building an outdoor addition or moving needs to start with a look at your home value, how much it will cost you to upgrade, and then factor in the time and energy of the hunt and the move.
Depending on what you want to get out of your expanded space, a better option could be an outdoor room addition. An outdoor room, or covered patio, can deliver many of the same advantages as a traditional framed and roofed addition. Opting for a modern rainproof pergola not only adds usable square footage to your home, but given the louvered pergola cost in South Florida, it can often be far more cost-effective. With the features and amenities available in today’s modern aluminum pergolas, your outdoor room addition will be a seamless part of your living space.
Here at SYZYGY Global, we are experts in creating luxurious outdoor living spaces that meet your needs . We custom-design your outdoor living space to fit your unique outdoor lifestyle. You truly have an infinite array of pergola design choices at your disposal.
We can design your new covered outdoor space with a solid fixed roof pergola or an adjustable louvered roof design. The fixed roof is perfect if your new room addition calls for fulltime shade, and fulltime sun and rain protection. A louvered roof could be preferred if you want maximum flexibility to control the sun/shade balance in the new space. The louvered-roof pergolas we design and install will even completely block out the rain. We also can customize your pergola with many of the amenities you’d expect indoors like retractable shade curtains, privacy panels or insect-blocking screens. We can embed several styles of LED lights, patio fans to keep the air flowing, and even infrared heaters to eschew an evening chill.
