The use of a porch can be problematic since its use is subject to weather conditions. For example, the summer provides strong sun during the day and humidity at night while the winter provides snow, rain and moisture. These ever changing weather conditions leave your patio uncomfortable and not very user friendly for a good part of the year. To help manage the environment on your patio, there are a number of solutions available in today's market beginning with a clapboard roof, canvas awnings, wooden gazebos, aluminum patio covers, etc. Unfortunately, these types of patio covers only offer partial solutions to weather problems and maintenance.
