One common advantage of having a patio is that it is a place to unwind; allowing one to enjoy the fresh air in the spring or summer.
Another added advantage of installing a patio to your home is that it offers an excellent place to entertain family and friends, especially if the house is a little small so the patio opens up the garden as an extra base.
Depending upon the present value of your home, adding a patio can considerably boost the valuation of your property.
